On today’s show, your hosts will recap the stellar result over Colorado, they’ll also get you the latest on the LA Galaxy and Gignac rumors, and they’ll get you ready for Sporting KC on the weekend.
CoG Studios, CA – The LA Galaxy just keep finding ways to win on the road! It’s not a bad thing, but surely, some of that has to carry over to their home record soon, right? Behind two goals from Jack McBean and a penalty kick that was buried by Romain Alessandrini, the Galaxy come back to StubHub Center on Saturday to face off against the best team in the West, Sporting KC.
Your hosts, CoG’s Josh Guesman and TotalMLS.Net’s (and sometimes CoG) writer Britt Pergl, will walk you through all the different angles to take on the win in the Mile High City. How impressive was McBean? How much credit should Curt Onalfo grab for putting out a lineup that was comprised of mostly former LA Galaxy II players? And how much did familiarity play into their clear success on the night?
There are just so many positives to talk about, it was hard to find a negative – not really!
Gyasi Zardes is on the hot seat again and callers have had enough. Is it time for Onalfo to bench Zardes? Will he ever be the same player? Are the expectations too much for him? Where do you sit? With Gyasi or with a growing contingent of Galaxy fans?
Next, Josh will walk you through the latest rumors concerning Galaxy target, André-Pierre Gignac. What is the likelihood the Liga MX star would want to come to Los Angeles? And where do Tigres stand in terms of letting him go? What motivation do they have to separate from him and how would he fit into the Galaxy? We’ve got a bunch of answers for you!
Finally, Josh and Britt get you ready for the weekend matchup with Sporting KC. They’re the number one team in the Western Conference. But you’d be surprised to know they aren’t that far away from the Galaxy. We’ll crunch the number for you and get you ready for a great Saturday night soccer game.
