PODCAST: Chicharito’s Basic Instinct ships two points. LA Galaxy need some wins. Six Games Left.

Riqui Puig continues to shine, and while Chicharito bags the brace, he knows he should have had three on the night. 3 goals and 3 points.

COG STUDIOS, Calif. — The LA Galaxy thought they had the comeback planted. Deep into stoppage time, a penalty kick to win all three points? What could go wrong?

On today’s show, host Josh Guesman is giving you his view on a boring game that had some exciting endings. But that last ending was anything but happy. Should Javier “Chicharito” Hernadez have taken either of the spot kicks? And what doesn’t Josh like about changing your mind during the kick? Should someone like Chicharito trust their instincts in a high-pressure situation where he’s a career 50-percent converter?

Josh will go over the entire game. He’ll start by talking about the lineup that didn’t include any wingers and what Greg Vanney was trying to do with a 4-4-2 diamond. And why it absolutely worked through the first 10 minutes of the game. 

But was Sacha Kljestan a controversial choice? Was starting Dejan Joveljic a mistake? And did the Galaxy feel toothless down the stretch until Kevin Cabral came on to win what should have been a game-winning penalty?

Josh will also go into the playoff picture, and which two teams are the Galaxy battling to keep out of the playoffs? What do their schedules look like? And can the 2021 Galaxy be a road map for the 2022 Galaxy?

We’ve got a very one-sided opinion on everything that happened on Sunday night, and we’re delighted you’re hanging in there to join us!

Thanks for watching and listening!
