Podcast: LA Galaxy see playoffs on life support and, the Gio-spot

On today’s show, your hosts will give you the big lessons from the big LA Galaxy loss on Saturday. And where do you go when you lose a must-win game?

COG STUDIOS, Calif. — An embarrassing loss against Real Salt Lake might find the LA Galaxy in a crisis of confidence. And while the playoff chances took a huge hit on Saturday night, the Galaxy still have a path into the post-season — it’s just a really narrow path.

On today’s show, your hosts Josh Guesman and Kevin Baxter discuss the Galaxy’s abysmal performance and failure to take a significant step towards the post-season. They’ll talk lineups and why players were on the bench instead of starting, and they’ll also talk about Sigi Schmid’s excuse that the injuries have kept this team from reaching its full potential.

If we told you the Galaxy have only had one back-to-back lineup all season, would you be surprised? How much did injuries and absences affect this team and why does it have our hosts calling Romain Alessandrini the third dos Santos brother?!

Josh and Kevin will also look at what other options the front office has in terms of dealing with another team that is likely to miss the playoffs. Do they wipe the slate clean and start with another coach? Or would doing so cost others their jobs, and ruin some organizational world-building that is taking place within the depths of StubHub Center?

Finally, the guys make sure you’ll join them for their mini-golf outing before reminding you of all the Galaxy news you missed and talking about the upcoming schedule! Will you walk away with the “Paisley windbreaker?” (this show gets more off the rails by the day!).

We’ve got over 70 mins of Galaxy-talk heading your way! don’t miss a single minute of it!
