On today’s show, your hosts will talk you through the LA Galaxy loss to Portland. Gyasi Zardes continues to frustrate while the club searches for a Van Damme replacement!
CoG Studios, CA – Your LA Galaxy fell apart in Portland where they lost 3-1 on the MLS debut of Jonathan dos Santos. While getting their new Designated Player on the field was positive there were plenty of negatives that we are more than happy to discuss.
Hosts Josh Guesman and Kevin Baxter are here to walk you through what they learned from the game in addition to giving you the latest and greatest Galaxy news.
First, the guys will talk about the effect of Video Assistant Referee (VAR) and how the first ever VAR call involving the Galaxy ended up completely changing the course of this game and how it could affect the rest of the season as well.
Did Gyasi Zardes see his goalless streak and his mojo go right out the window? And is it even fair to introduce this new technology more than halfway through the season? Can it affect each team differently?
The guys will then ensure that they cover the latest rumors surround Jelle Van Damme and why the Galaxy may be in France searching for his replacement. But what happens if that replacement wants a longer contract? Can the Galaxy free up some of their long-term money?
Josh and Kevin will also give you their opinions of Jonathan dos Santos and discuss why the Galaxy may have hitched themselves to the Dos Santos wagon for longer than they think. Can you get rid of brothers individually? Or are these two linked together regardless of how the other performs?
Finally, we’ll take your questions, your phone calls, your tweets, and your emails as we do our best to get you all the updated information you need to be the smartest person at Saturday’s game.
