PODCAST: Chicharito is back, and the Galaxy haven’t beaten Colorado in a long time

The LA Galaxy get ready for the final stretch run of the 2021 regular season. With Chicharito back, can the club top the Colorado Rapids, finally?

COG STUDIOS, Calif. — There are just 12 games left in the 2021 regular season for the LA Galaxy. Are the Galaxy prepared to start winning right now? And are they ready to get Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez back on the field?

Today’s show will get you ready for the Galaxy’s next game against the Colorado Rapids. And that’s going to be a massive test for a team that doesn’t know what their best lineup is and is having to go to altitude to try and beat a team they haven’t beat since 2017.

Hosts Josh Guesman and Eric Vieira discuss the Galaxy’s media conference call and tell you about the positivity exuding from Galaxy head coach Greg Vanney. Will Chicharito play in a single striker formation? Will Vanney pair with Dejan Joveljić? And what circumstances might the Galaxy use Chicharito in during the game?

The guys will also talk about the Galaxy’s odds to make the playoffs, according to FiveThirtyEight, and why betting on them to win MLS Cup might be a steal!

But there’s also talk from Josh and Eric about some international players returning that haven’t been vaccinated. Will they be available for Saturday’s game? And how could this hurt the team down the road when the next international window opens?

We’ve got a packed show that is jammed with stats and information that will get you ready for the Rocky Mountain clash on Saturday. 

What was Josh’s best advice about the game? Start drinking early!

Thanks for joining us on the podcast today! And let’s hope the Galaxy can find a way to make the final 12 games of the regular season a happy experience.
