Podcast: Zlatan’s antics and Polenta wants away from the Galaxy?

The LA Galaxy got the win over Cincinnati but Ibrahimovic’s antics were on full display. Is he hurting the club?

COG STUDIOS, Calif. — A 2-0 win over FC Cincinnati should be more than enough to get you excited about the LA Galaxy, right? And what if we throw in a Zlatan Ibrahimovic-sized controversy and an interesting Diego Polenta rumor to boot?

On today’s show, we’re breaking news, breaking down the game, and discussing the biggest takeaways from this weekend’s win.

Your host, Josh Guesman, is back to tell you what he saw in the Galaxy’s third consecutive road-win and tell you what he liked and didn’t like about the game.

And he’s certainly going to start with Emmanuel Boateng trying to show up this podcast by having one of his best performances of the year, and he’s also going to tell you why Perry Kitchen has just flipped some of the scripts on the “no depth” argument.

Plus, there are plenty of hot-takes on Ibrahimovic’s antics and why the quote from Sebastian Lletget is nothing to get worked up about.

Josh will also give you a mid-season chart update that tells you why the Galaxy may be out-performing their expected progress and which two Galaxy players have the misfortune of being named to the MLS All-Star Game in Orlando at the end of July.

Finally, your host will ensure that you’re up to date on most of the club’s international players before shifting your attention to news about Polenta wanting to leave the Galaxy.

At first glance, you may think the rumors are ridiculous, but there are some excellent reasons why it might make sense. And Josh will set the record straight on whether there’s any truth to the rumors.

It’s a packed show that gets you caught up with your Galaxy just before the first Cali-Clasico of 2019.
