PODCAST: Winning Ugly. The Galaxy are turning the beautiful game upside down.

We’re talking defensive standouts and offensive call-outs. Can the LA Galaxy find the balance without upsetting their best asset?

COG STUDIOS, Calif. — Are the LA Galaxy winning ugly? Or do they make teams play ugly because they’re a formidable defensive challenge? 

Coming off of a 1-0 victory over one of Major League Soccer’s top-ranked offenses, the Galaxy are creating their own defensive identity. And that means things aren’t always going to look so pretty. 

But does that mean you can’t be concerned about the offense? Because you probably should be. 

Hosts Josh Guesman and Kevin Baxter discuss the Galaxy’s win over Austin against a team that hadn’t been beaten at home all year. What do the 19 points from 10 games mean? And do you feel like there’s some sustainability to the defensive record?

Josh and Kevin will discuss the faltering Galaxy offense and why Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez, Douglas Costa, Efrain Alvarez, and Kevin Cabral all need to find the back of the net. 

And Josh will name a Galaxy player that doesn’t get enough crap for not sticking the ball into the back of the net and could have seen the Galaxy easily walk past Austin.

Plus, the guys will talk about the US Open Cup match with Cal United Strikers on Wednesday and tell you who’s making an appearance for Galaxy, who hasn’t been seen at the stadium for a very long time. 

Here’s a hint: it starts with a “T” and ends with a “wizzle.” If you know, you know. 

The guys have a packed show tonight, and they’re delighted you took time out of your Monday night to talk some Galaxy with them!
