On today’s show, your hosts will talk about the loss to Sporting KC and why subtle messages are being sent to some LA Galaxy players.
CoG Studios, CA – The LA Galaxy set a new franchise record for losses in a season, and that’s unlikely to stop with just four games remaining in this dreadful 2017 season.
But in the loss, the Galaxy may have sent some rather subtle messages to a couple of different players, and your hosts Josh Guesman and Kevin Baxter are ready to discuss those with you and give you their thoughts about the game.
Kevin calls in from a Dodger game he was covering for the first portion of the show to give you all the info he can muster about the Galaxy’s trip to Kansas City. Why did Gyasi Zardes get a start at right back? And what rumors had him scheduled to play in that position weeks ago? The guys will explain all the behind the scenes talks that went on.
Plus, Josh wonders why Sigi Schmid would pull Jon Kempin from his starting spot when he was scheduled to play in front of his former club, and his family? Was that bad coaching? Or was another message being lobbed across the bow of a potentially underperforming player?
One guy who didn’t pull any punches was Galaxy Legend, Landon Donovan. Donovan was in charge of the color commentary for the match on Sunday, and he had some harsh words for the Galaxy. Did they have a plan? Were Donovan’s comments over the line? Is it possible to be too critical of this 2017 team?
Finally, Josh will take your calls into the CoG Hotline (949.385.2641) as well as your emails and twitter questions before getting you ready for the Galaxy’s final game of a three-game road trip against the Houston Dynamo.
It’s a great show that gets you all the Galaxy info you need for your Wednesday night matchup. Thanks for listening!
