Podcast: GBS needs to put Chicharito in a position to succeed, or he’ll be out of a job

His history is clear, Chicharito is playing out of position. So in order to get the best from your most expensive player, you have to change it up. Maybe something vanilla?

COG STUDIOS, Calif. — A loss to the worst team in the Western Conference that promptly puts the LA Galaxy as the worst team in the conference? Why do the Galaxy suck? And why is Guillermo Barros Schelotto not putting players into positions to succeed?

On today’s show, hosts Josh Guesman and Kevin Baxter, discuss the Galaxy’s loss to the San Jose Earthquakes and why the club continues to fail across all levels of the team. The guys will discuss the field conditions, Chicharito’s ineffectiveness, and why GBS is back on the hot seat.

Plus, Josh and Kevin will discuss the International call-ups for Jonathan dos Santos and Rolf Feltscher and why the Galaxy may have let both players go to their respective national teams when they didn’t need to.

Then, they’ll discuss the Galaxy’s trip to Colorado and why Galaxy fans traveling to the Mile-High City need to stay home instead.

But the main focus of the entire show is a look at how to make Chicharito successful and why a formation change is needed if they’re going to get the most of him — even his time with Mexico proves this point.

And all of this gets you up to the Portland match on Wednesday! Can the Galaxy rebound and start another winning streak? Or do we know precisely who the Galaxy are in 2020?

We’ve got a packed show that’s just waiting to get started. So join us, and be sure to tell your friends!
