Podcast: Galaxy are the best team in April, with the best player

Galaxy finish the month without a loss and Jonathan dos Santos continues to be the teams best player. Can they get better?

COG STUDIOS, Calif. — The LA Galaxy finished out a very successful month of April with a win over Real Salt Lake on Sunday evening.

It was another case of the club not playing perfect soccer, but doing enough to win the game. And the best player on the field for the Galaxy, was readily apparent.

On today’s show, your hosts, reporters Josh Guesman and Kevin Baxter, are back to talk about the imperfect Galaxy and why their shortcomings might mean the best is yet to come.

Did you get a glimpse of how good the Galaxy can be during the first half of the game? Josh thinks you did and he’s willing to explain. Also, the Galaxy shouldn’t try and hide behind fatigue for the reason they were not good in the second half of the win. But that second half also saw them score the game-winning goal.

The guys will even dive into Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s ridiculous goalscoring pace and why you already know what you’re going to get from his behavior. And yes, it’s going to hurt the club. But that’s part of the Ibrahimovic package.

Did you think he was out of line with his trash talking against Real Salt Lake? Do you think his teammates are sick of his act on the field? Does winning cure everything?

The guys will also discuss the long-term injury to Romain Alessandrini and why Chris Pontius is the short term answer to the Galaxy’s offensive injury problems and why the club is running out of time to sign a versatile playmaker.

Finally, the guys take a look at the Galaxy’s hectic May schedule. And Kevin will clue you in on how the Galaxy plan on using one of their four charter flights coming soon.

It’s a packed show that is sure to have you laugh, scream, and enjoy the more than 70 minutes of Galaxy-talk.
