Podcast: Who said MLS Cup? Oh, the Galaxy did!

Something big is becoming very obvious. And the LA Galaxy are looking like something they haven’t been in a long time; a contender!

COG STUDIOS, Calif. — The LA Galaxy turned an unfortunate sequence of events into a point against a woeful Seattle Sounders team. But the result wasn’t the performance, and the performance told us everything we need to know about the Galaxy. So sit back and relax as host Josh Guesman tells all the things he saw from the draw with the Seattle Sounders.

Josh will start with the Galaxy’s biggest star, Zlatan Ibrahimovic. He’ll tell you why there was no one more dominant than Ibrahimovic in week 24 and why the 6-foot-5 Swede might be extending his stay in Los Angeles. He’ll also tell you why the addition of Cristian Pavon was so crucial to the Galaxy’s offense and the happiness of Ibrahimovic.

Then your host will detail the excellent performances from Jonathan dos Santos, Sebastian Lletget, and David Bingham. Yep, he said David Bingham. And there’s a significant reason why you can blame Bingham for a mistake that costs the Galaxy three points but also rewards the goalkeeper for an excellent night where he made more than one game-saving save.

And the result is what it is. It’s disappointing to not walk away with three points, but it’s far from the complete story. The big story is that the Galaxy now have one of the most dangerous offenses in MLS. And with Ibrahimovic and Pavon teaming up to torment defenses, they have a real chance at something they haven’t been talking about in years.

Did someone say MLS Cup?

We’ve got a packed show that covers a bunch of essential angles about the Galaxy and discusses what is coming down the road for LA. They have a chance at the playoffs, and that is something we haven’t seen since 2015.

Are you ready for the show?
