Podcast: Losing to Colorado was a bad result from an okay Galaxy game

The LA Galaxy ended Colorado’s losing streak by extending their own. But the Galaxy didn’t have a horrible game. It just fell short in one important area — creativity!

COG STUDIOS, Calif. — The LA Galaxy just lost to the worst team in Major League Soccer. Does that mean they’ve hit rock bottom? Or is there an argument to be made the Galaxy took a step forward in that loss? There can’t be, right?

On today’s show, your hosts Josh Guesman and Kevin Baxter are ready to discuss the Galaxy’s loss to the previously winless Colorado Rapids. The guys are going to start with the lineups and then tear right through to the condensed schedule that could see the Galaxy’s four-game losing streak extended.

Did Guillermo Barros Schelotto use his roster right? Josh and Kevin will talk about the Galaxy’s failure to score despite generating some real chances on the night. And how did Favio Alvarez fair in his MLS and Galaxy debut?

But the big question they’ll attempt to answer is why the Galaxy put 33 crosses into the box in search of a tiny Emmanuel Boateng? Was there something there the Galaxy were trying to exploit? Or was it the remnants of Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s suspension?

Josh will even get into why the Galaxy armband went to the right player when Jonathan dos Santos came off the field, and this touches off a better discussion about Dan Steres, and who should get the armband going forward.


The guys have a packed show that is examining the reason behind the four-game skid while also trying to put it into the perspective of the full season.

Are the Galaxy still a playoff team? Are they worse than we thought? Better than we thought?

All of that can be found on another 60 or more minutes of Galaxy-talk that is “rapidly” (too soon?) coming your way!
