COG STUDIOS, Calif. — A loss to the San Jose Earthquakes seems lopsided and not competitive. But the LA Galaxy were more than competitive in that game. They should have earned at least a point out of that game, but something is still missing.

On today’s show, host Josh Guesman walks you through the 3-0 loss to the Earthquakes. He wants to talk about how the Galaxy adjusted to a weird style of play and why the final pass was once again missing from the team’s talent vocabulary.

But more importantly, he wants to talk about the adjustments that Guillermo Barros Schelotto made and why the Galaxy should have rewarded the coach with at least a point.

And Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s post-game comments might seem like he’s disconnected, but Josh is here to decipher the comments and tell you what was really on the Swedish superstar’s mind. He’s frustrated, and he should be. The Galaxy are missing a key offensive piece, and that’s forcing Ibrahimovic to do too much.

Plus, we’ll dig into the Galaxy’s injury status and update you on the players who came back from the international break and the players that are still playing for their national team’s and won’t make the club’s next match.

Josh is also talking about the new rumors that have just surfaced and why there’s an awful lot of posturing going on between both the Galaxy and Boca Juniors. And why the look to a Portuguese winger might make a ton of sense for the club.

Finally, we’re getting you ready for the Galaxy’s Fourth of July matchup with Toronto FC and why they need to have some success to start their four-game homestand.

It’s a packed show full of Galaxy-talk and news, and we’re glad you could join us!
