22-year-old Kai Koreniuk saved the day for the LA Galaxy on Sunday night. But bigger questions remain to be answered as the club struggles to find a plan for 2020 and beyond.
COG STUDIOS, Calif. — The LA Galaxy finally escaped their six-game losing streak with a last-minute goal by substitute Kai Koreniuk. It was the first time in 2020 that a substitute had scored a goal for the Galaxy, making them the last MLS team to accomplish that feat. And when we look at a win that almost didn’t happen, it won’t be surprising to find out that nothing has changed in the Galaxy’s front office.
On today’s show, hosts Josh Guesman and Kevin Baxter discuss the issues with the Galaxy’s late three points and why the club is still on edge about what they’re going to do with Guillermo Barros Schelotto and his coaching staff.
The guys will take a look at the positives in the clubs 1-0 victory over the Vancouver Whitecaps and why, for the majority of the game, the Galaxy were far from the better team. They’ll also discuss the benching of Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez and what that means for this club’s future when their most expensive player can’t make a starting lineup.
But Josh will also tell you why Yony Gonzalez doesn’t seem to be the answer at striker. And maybe, without COVID-19, this team would be a lot different. We’ll discuss how travel restrictions are keeping the Galaxy from making any moves to make their team better.
Josh and Kevin will also talk about unbalanced schedules, the Wooden Spoon, and the Supporters Shield and why not handing out those awards this season won’t keep anyone from sleeping at night.
We’ve got a packed show that will touch on the Galaxy’s most significant issues, and we can’t wait to share it with you!
