Podcast: Grinding out a win, surviving the travel, and looking to roast LAFC

A win over Portland has the LA Galaxy feeling good, but they’re clearly tired. Can they do it again against LAFC on Sunday? Do they need to?

COG STUDIOS, Calif. — They’re on a winning streak! After their third win in-a-row, the LA Galaxy are riding high but feeling every ounce of every effort they’ve put into every minute of every game. So can they repeat that feat against LAFC on Sunday night?

On today’s show, hosts Josh Guesman and Eric Vieira are throwing caution to the wind when they predict and explain what you’re about to see, and what the win over the Portland Timbers already proved.

The guys will take their time with the Timbers match and break down the good, the bad, and the ugly. Did the Galaxy take a step backward? Did the defense stop defending? And what about the goalkeeping position? Is there cause for worry?

Josh and Eric will touch on the recent success of Efrain Alvarez, talk about the dominance of Cristian Pavon, and tell you why Joe Corona hit a banger that still has Eric all excited. And for a team that relies on set-pieces, how did the Galaxy put together three top-shelf open-play goals against a Timbers B side?

Josh will predict what you’re going to hear from Friday’s press availability and tell you why you shouldn’t count on Yony González in any of the Phase I games.

The guys will also tell you why Chicharito probably won’t find the field on Sunday and why that’s probably just fine. And will the Galaxy try to keep Pavon? Do they have the money?

Finally, they’ll dive into the latest El Trafico! Will the heat be too much to handle for both teams? And can the Galaxy make it four-in-a-row? It will be a tall order, especially with all the travel that just took place getting to Portland.

Don’t miss this entertaining show! It’ll get you ready for just about anything!

NOTE: There is no truth to the rumor that LAFC fans tried to hack our show during the dramatic game preview… probably
