Podcast: FC Dallas Mistakes, overthinking a lineup, and LA Galaxy travel to Portland

On today’s show, your hosts will walk you through the bad loss to FC Dallas, and why the LA Galaxy coaching staff overthought some simple decisions.

CoG Studios, CA — The LA Galaxy didn’t impress in their rematch with FC Dallas on Wednesday night. In fact, they repeated the same mistakes that saw¬†them lose to Dallas earlier in the month. And to make matters worse, it seems like some rather simple lineup errors made sure the Galaxy were never in the game.

On today’s show, your hosts Josh Guesman and Wendy Thomas are back to discuss the shortcomings against Dallas and ultimately get you ready for another quick turnaround against the Portland Timbers.

First, Josh and Wendy will discuss the many mistakes that were made to even filed a team. Is there a reason Dan Steres was forced out of position at right-back again? When he had similar difficulties against Dallas the last time they played? Plus, was there a need to rotate the defense on the night? Or did Galaxy head coach Sigi Schmid just come up short at every turn in this game?

Plus, why do the Galaxy always seem to allow goals and then kick the offense in gear? Is there something in Schmid’s DNA that won’t allow him to rely on the Galaxy’s talented core of offensive players?

Your hosts will also go through some of the post-game audio from Ashley Cole, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and Sigi Schmid and point out the conflicting answers to questions that should see them all be on the same page. What’s going on in that locker room that they can’t all get on the same page?

Finally, Josh and Wendy will answer some of your CoG-Hotline calls and get you ready for a very tough matchup against the Timbers. Is this game one the Galaxy can win? Or did the club already screw it up by trying to win both games instead of focusing on a single one?

It’s a great 60+ minutes of Galaxy-talk and we’re glad you could join us!
