Podcast: Micromanaging, meddling, and mini-golf. Plus, record setting Galaxy defense?

On today’s show, your hosts will walk you through the big items to take away from the LA Galaxy loss in Toronto while also giving you the latest look into a dysfunctional front office.

COG STUDIOS, Calif. — It was another disheartening loss to Toronto on Saturday night. And while Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored his 500th career goal, did the loss solidify the LA Galaxy defense into its own record-setting pace?

On today’s show, your hosts Josh Guesman and Kevin Baxter get you through another rough outing in Canada. But in doing so, the guys will give you all the latest updates on the team, and the search for a coach.

First, the guys will start off with some of the bigger takeaways from the 5-3 loss to Toronto. They’ll talk about interim head coach Dominic Kinnear’s lineup and why it wasn’t surprising to see two names playing some significant minutes – Bradford Jamieson IV and Baggio Husidic – and why Jorgen Skjelvik was pulled from the game much earlier than he wanted.

Plus, with Ibrahimovic reaching 500 career goals, the guys talk about how ridiculously good he’s been for the club this year and why he’s quietly leading the Galaxy to one of the top offensive performances in franchise history. Is it surprising that the offense is this good while also understanding just how ridiculously awful the Galaxy defense is?

Finally, the guys pull back the curtains to get you a look into the front office and understand just how much has been damaged in two years of atrocious results. And will Ibrahimovic help in the coaching search? Should he?

And with some big-name MLS coaches on the wishlist, can this front office convince anyone to come to StubHub Center without big guarantees that they’re going to be given time and space to create a new Galaxy organization?

We’ve got a packed show with tons of inside information that you’re not going to want to miss.
