PODCAST: The LA Galaxy are paying a “Stupid Tax,” and getting results against Atlanta won’t be easy

Atlanta United will give the LA Galaxy a chance at breaking their losing streak. And LA need the points badly.

COG STUDIOS, Calif. — The LA Galaxy face off against a team they’ve never beaten. So will Atlanta United cause as many problems as the San Jose Earthquakes for LA?

On today’s show, hosts Josh Guesman and Eric Vieira discuss the Galaxy’s continued fall from grace. They’ll talk about the “Stupid Tax” the club has been paying with all of their transfers and why ghost teams probably aren’t in place to get another signing across the line. 

But what do we make of Gaston Brugman? Will he be an answer of sorts that fixes some of the issues the Galaxy have? 

Plus, who would be your Penalty Kick takers in a winner-take-all shootout? Would you let Chicharito take one of them? What about Jonathan Bond?

Josh and Eric also want to talk about points totals and why there might be a low number this year for getting into the playoffs. Will 19 points be enough? What about 21? 24?

With just 14 games left (15 if you’re Greg Vanney), the Galaxy need a confidence boost. But if they see another loss, will Vanney’s seat get warm? What about other changes in the front office. Are jobs on the line?

We’ve got another packed show to prepare you for Atlanta United on Sunday!
