Podcast: Galaxy searching for perfection – Ibrahimovic and GBS demanding it

What does it say about the LA Galaxy that they simply aren’t satisified with a shutout win over the Philadelphi Union? That they’re searching for something more.

COG STUDIOS, Calif. — The LA Galaxy got a big 2-0 win over the Philadelphia Union on Saturday night at Dignity Health Sports Park. But the biggest takeaway from the post-match festivities was how disappointed the team was in their second-half performance.

On today’s show, your hosts Josh Guesman and Kevin Baxter are back to talk about the Galaxy’s second consecutive shutout and discuss what it that means. Are the Galaxy one of the better teams in Major League Soccer this year?

The guys will frame their entire discussion around the game and give you all the best tidbits of information that you want. They’ll discuss the play of many different players, but focus in on two — Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Jonathan dos Santos.

Ibrahimovic is doing some fantastic things in MLS and specifically with the Galaxy. And his current record for scoring goals — six goals in four games — merely is off the charts. Josh and Kevin will explain his dominance and give you plenty to think about when you start thinking about what his legacy could be by the end of the season.

And then they’ll take a look at the other standout of the season so far, dos Santos. He’s been the Designated Player the Galaxy have needed in the center of midfield. And his pairing with Joe Corona and Sebastian Lletget has made the Galaxy one of the quickest teams in MLS. And if you don’t believe us, hear what Philadelphia Head Coach Jim Curtain had to say about the Galaxy and their pace of play.

But this episode is setting the stage for what is to come down the line. A look at the standings, an understanding of where the Galaxy compare across all their previous seasons, and a look at a schedule that includes some real tests!

It’s a packed show, and we’re glad you could join us.
