Podcast: Clock is already ticking for Galaxy front office – decisions need to be made!

On today’s show, your hosts get you ready for a busy offseason that is filled with many different drafts. And that means the LA Galaxy are already behind!

COG STUDIOS, Calif. — The LA Galaxy got some good news when Zlatan Ibrahimovic captured two different league-wide awards. But without a new general manager and without a clear direction they seem to be grinding to a halt when quick decisions about the long-term future of the club need to be made.

On today’s show, your hosts Josh Guesman and Kevin Baxter are back to discuss the Galaxy’s perceived problems with not already have a head of their soccer operations in place. And what that will mean in the very near future!

The guys start the show by re-examining the firing of Pete Vagenas and discussing why it does little to change the culture in the front office. Plus, was Vagenas just another scapegoat in a drastically shrinking sea of scapegoats?

And did the Galaxy offer a contract to Dennis te Kloese? If they did, did the Dutchman turn them down? What does that say about the current organization if that’s true?

Finally, the guys will walk you through some very important offseason dates for the Galaxy and why the calendar seems to be speeding up instead of slowing down. With an Expansion Draft bearing down on the club, who will make the decisions of who to protect and who not to protect? And what should the players be expecting from the club while there is a hunt to determine who will head the soccer operations? And who is making contract decisions as the Galaxy rapidly approach the Option Deadline for the 2018 season?

We’ve got a quick show for you as we keep you focused on the big issues that are already affecting the Galaxy’s 2019 season and why the direction of the club is no clearer than when they fired Sigi Schmid before the end of the season.
