Podcast: A Slip-N-Slide, Mystery-Man, Remodel for the Galaxy as they face Seattle

Has Chicharito changed your expectations? And are the LA Galaxy ready for their toughest test of the young season — a trip to Seattle?

COG STUDIOS, Calif. — The LA Galaxy are getting ready for their biggest test of this young season. So can the mistakes be fixed, the defense tightened, and the Galaxy reinforced against a talented and organized Seattle Sounders team?

Hosts Josh Guesman and Eric Vieira join you for another big game preview as they get you updated on the Galaxy news you need to know.  

There’s always some Javier Hernandez talk to kick off the show. After, the Galaxy’s most expensive player on the field is lighting MLS on fire with five goals through the first two games. So do we adjust our expectations for Chicharito now that he already has five goals? And do those expectations put him in a higher echelon than some of the Galaxy’s most significant players? How many goals do you expect from the man, and did that number change?

Next, Josh and Eric discuss the signing of Sega Coulibaly and why the Galaxy aren’t done adding to the roster. Yes, we’ve got ourselves a mystery-man, and your guess is as good as theirs. But what isn’t a guess is that the Galaxy are running out of roster spots and International slots. So does that give us a clue as to who might be filling out this roster?

The guys will breeze past the standings, talk about a perfect April and some perfect Sundays before landing on a weekly schedule, and how the Galaxy will get to Seattle. 

Finally, you’ll get a dramatic game preview of this Sounders matchup, an intro to passing networks, and why Seattle is playing a five-man backline that probably looks more like a three-man backline. Oh yeah, and Nico Lodeiro looks like he’s going to be back for this game too. 

Can the Galaxy beat the considerable odds to keep their season perfect? Is a draw on the road more than enough to keep people happy? Or could a loss even be therapeutic?

We’ve got you covered on a jam-packed episode of Corner of the Galaxy.
