Podcast: Lost and Losing. The Galaxy slide further.

A loss to the Seattle Sounders finds the LA Galaxy asking questions about who they are, again. What did you make of the loss?

COG STUDIOS, Calif. — The LA Galaxy lost to the Seattle Sounders on Sunday night, and that extended their losing streak to three games. There were plenty of bad games from multiple players. But the stark reality is that the club is showing who they are.

On today’s show, hosts Josh Guesman and Kevin Baxter discuss the Galaxy’s losing streak and dig into some of the individual performances and tactics that didn’t go the Galaxy’s way. After all, it’s not often the goalscorer has a bad game. And what’s wrong with the club’s energy? Why do they continue to start so slow?

Josh and Kevin also look back at the historical setting that has the Galaxy struggling under Guillermo Barros Schelotto but showing some serious turnover since 2017.

Did Chicharito have a better game than you expected? Are the Galaxy running away from things that were more successful during the winning streak? And can you take anything positive from a throwaway goal in the 88th minute?

Then the guys look into Colorado’s surprise coronavirus infections and talk about the Galaxy’s trip there in early October. Is the MLS season the line?


Finally, will Cristian Pavon and Rolf Fetlscher be playing their last game for the Galaxy this year? Will International duty cause the club to play shorthanded for the rest of the short year?

It’s a quick 60-plus minutes of Galaxy-talk that will get you through a week with just one game. That’s crazy talk! Thanks for joining us!
