Podcast: MLS’ worst team, guaranteed LA Galaxy wins, and an absent Panda!

On today’s show, your host gets you ready for LA Galaxy vs DC United and explains why it all went sideways against the San Jose Earthquakes. Draws that feel like losses — ouch!

CoG Studios, CA — The LA Galaxy struggled through a 3-3 draw with the San Jose Earthquakes despite being up by a score of 3-1 after just 25 minutes. What does that tell us about the Galaxy’s defense and midfield?! That it’s nowhere near good enough!

Your host Josh Guesman — don’t worry, Kevin Baxter isn’t in some Russian jail. At least not the last I checked — is ready to bring you his view of why the Galaxy couldn’t be bothered to hold a two-goal lead and what that means for this club.

It’s becoming more and more obvious that the focus on defense isn’t working for the club. So should Sigi Schmid be more focused on a potent Galaxy offense? Should he be relying on a team that scored three goals in 25 minutes and then somehow took their foot off the gas? Is the defense really to blame in his loss?

Josh will take your calls, answer your questions and get you through the disappointing draw.

Then, we’ll shuffle you down the road to give you the updated expected date for Giovani dos Santos and Jonathan dos Santos to rejoin the club after Mexico’s exit from the World Cup. Does this pose more problems than it solves? Will working them both back into a formation that has changed since they last participated in competitive matches for the club cause some serious issues? And who is going to the bench?

Plus want to hear a crazy stat that tells you just how well, or poorly the Galaxy have spent their money in 2018? We’ve got it that, the Galaxy’s hectic game schedule and the weekly schedule that will get you through both of this week’s games.

Finally, we’ll get you primed and prepped for the Galaxy’s match with DC United. The worst team in MLS is coming to StubHub Center and the Galaxy need all three points and a convincing win!
