Podcast: Galaxy Missing that Team Mentality and a Small Step Forward for MLS

Could California keep the LA Galaxy from getting back to some form of training? And what special thing did that 2014 team have that the current club needs?

COG STUDIOS, Calif. — We’re back for another show and this time we’re taking a look back at the 2014 MLS-Cup-Winning LA Galaxy. One of the best Galaxy teams ever to be assembled, the 2014 team, along with all of the Bruce Arena teams starting in 2009, had something special about it. But what was it?

Hosts Josh Guesman and Kevin Baxter are here to tell you what they remember from that team and why it’s all related to the struggles the team has had in recent years.

Plus, the big news of the week was Major League Soccer dipping their toes into a tiny first step to returning the league to normalcy. Josh and Kevin will discuss what restrictions the individual training allowance has and why MLS was soo keen to get this in place. But is this really about player safety? Or is MLS testing the first piece of the plan across the entire nation and seeing where they have issues?

Plus, the guys are talking about Governor Gavin Newsom taking the state of California to Stage 2. Does that mean live sports — part of Stage 3 — are close? No. No, it doesn’t.

Finally, Kevin wants to tell you how much trouble the European leagues are having with trying to finish out the season and why that should be a warning to MLS. This isn’t easy, it’s not getting easier, and it’s going to be a long road for this season to get off the ground!

We’re glad you could join us, and we hope you, your family, and your friends are staying safe. So stay at home, enjoy your family, and keep washing those hands.
