On today’s show, your hosts walk you through the big takeaways from the LA Galaxy loss to the Colorado Rapids. Did Sigi Schmid get it wrong with the formation? Or is this one on the players?
CoG Studios, CA — The LA Galaxy had their nine-game unbeaten streak snapped by the Colorado Rapids on Saturday night. But with a busy schedule coming up, and some tired legs was the change in formation necessary? Or is this defense just not good enough regardless of the way they were set up?
On today’s show, your hosts Josh Guesman and Kevin Baxter are back to give you all the latest in Galaxy-talk and to make sure you understand all the intricacies of the weekend’s loss!
First, the guys will talk about the surprise of not having Giovani dos Santos for this game and how his continual absences have really affected the club’s overall consistency. Do you think that Giovani and Jonathan dos Santos only get starts because they’re high-priced Designated Players? Or is there some merit to starting both of them on a regular basis — or basically anytime they’re healthy.
Then the guys look at the formation change and how Servando Carrasco and Daniel Steres fared in their returns to the starting lineup. Was Carrasco a good replacement for Perry Kitchen? Was Steres an upgrade for Michael Ciani?
Finally, the guys make sure they answer your questions as they talk about the Galaxy’s reliance on the suspended Zlatan Ibrahimovic, on whether the club can make any moves before the transfer window closes, and on if David Bingham is the big problem with the Galaxy’s defense.
In fact, Josh breaks out his stats to give you the best perspective on Bingham and we’re sure Kevin has some baseball reference to tie it all together.
It’s a 60-minute show packed with all the Galaxy-Centric topics you’ve been dreaming of!
