Podcast: In coaching search, LA Galaxy need a long-term plan! Plus, readying for Seattle

On today’s show, your host is going to talk about long-term plans and why the Galaxy have operated without one since Bruce Arena left. Plus, we’re getting you ready for Seattle.

COG STUDIOS, Calif — After another disappointing game against Toronto, the LA Galaxy have to ready themselves for a once-hot Seattle Sounders. Will the midweek loss and midweek injuries slow Seattle’s momentum on the road?

Your host, Josh Guesman, is back to give you the injury updates, coaching updates, General Manager updates, you deserve and need ahead of Sunday’s big game.

Josh will start by reminding you of the current state of the Galaxy and explain their seven-game winless streak and exactly how many days all that “not-winning” is taking up.

Next, it’s on to the San Jose Earthquakes and how their coaching search already seems to be outpacing the Galaxy. And with both teams hunting for some of the same targets, it’s up to the Galaxy to be swift and focused in who they get.

Josh will also go over some of the more desirable general manager prospects and why the club could be slow-playing their search. Could the Galaxy go after a major international coach? Does that mean signing a domestic General Manager? And could the Galaxy front offices see some sacrifice after the season is over?

Next, we’ll go on to discuss how Sporting KC was able to take a long-term plan and turn it into on the field success. In Peter Vermes, Sporting KC was able to get a big ego to invest in his own long-term plan. The results have been a competitive team. Could the same groundwork be laid for the Galaxy going forward? And with more money to spend, could an investment in a long-term plan be even more important to the Galaxy?

Finally, we’ll wrap everything up and get you ready for another “must-win” game against the Sounders on Sunday. Points! The Galaxy need them all!
