Podcast: Schelotto Sacked, te Kloese takes the blame, Galaxy reset

The LA Galaxy have moved on from Guillermo Barros Schelotto and his coaching staff. With Kinnear in charge, can they do something positive in their last three games of 2020?

COG STUDIOS, Calif. — Guillermo Barros Schelotto has been fired by the LA Galaxy. It was probably a necessary step for a team that has struggled with any positive momentum throughout the Covid-affected year. So with Dominic Kinnear in charge of the Galaxy for the time being — his second stint as interim head coach — how did we get to this point once again?

On today’s show, your hosts Josh Guesman and Eric Vieira dive into the timeline of events that led to Schelotto’s sacking on Thursday afternoon.

The guys start with some weird injury announcement from Chicharito. Was his Instagram post out of line? And how many conspiracy theories can the guys come up with when it comes to the $15-million man?

Then it’s off to discuss the Galaxy’s abysmal loss to the Portland Timbers. Did Dennis te Kloese know that he was going to have to fire Schelotto after the game? And what did he say at halftime that gave us some clues on which way he was leaning?

Then the guys dig into the announcement of Schelotto’s firing and what te Kloese had to say during his afternoon press conference. In fact, we’ll give you pretty full coverage of the press conference during the show to get you caught up on everything that was said during the entire event.

Finally, the guys will go over all the rule changes MLS put in place to get the 2020 season done and dusted and why the Galaxy might have a slightly better chance at getting into the playoffs with the points per game governing their outcome.

There’s even a little game preview of the Real Salt Lake game coming up this weekend.

In total, we’ve got over 90-minutes of important Galaxy-talk. Don’t miss it! And thanks for joining us tonight!
