PODCAST: LA Galaxy give up 3 first-half goals. Stop me if you’ve heard this one

COG STUDIOS, Calif. — The LA Galaxy looked like they were the ones on Covid Vacation through the first 45-minutes of the match against the San Jose Earthquakes. But why the genuine lack of confidence in the defense? And can the Galaxy get their mojo back in the Mile-High City? 

On today’s show, hosts Josh Guesman and Eric Vieira discuss the Galaxy’s 3-2 loss to the San Jose Earthquakes on Wednesday night. And why there seems to be a pattern of “softness” on defense. Can the Galaxy and Greg Vanney make adjustments?

Why did Douglas Costa impress in his second-half performance, and why did Kevin Cabral’s first assist of the season still leave everyone questioning his finishing? Plus, did Efrain Alvarez’s bleached hair lead to another sub-par performance?

Hosts Josh Guesman and Eric Vieira discuss the first-half collapse and why this pattern will repeat itself until the players start playing with a little more confidence. Can the team psychology be mended before a necessary playoff run?

And the lack of infrastructure surrounding the Galaxy’s acquisition tools keeps being a problem. So what more do the Galaxy need to do? Unfortunately, they need to have patience. And that’s not going to be easy to do. 

We’ve got a packed show to ensure you’re ready for the match against Colorado. Will the altitude be a welcomed respite from the bright lights at Dignity Health Sports Park? 

And will a short-handed Galaxy earn some road points against the Rapids?
