PODCAST: LA Galaxy Smash Colorado. So, Playoffs?

With a convincing win over Colorado, are the LA Galaxy suddenly in the driver’s seat? Do they control their own playoff destiny?

COG STUDIOS, Calif. — This feels like an unfamiliar position. But with the win over Colorado on Saturday night, the LA Galaxy are in the driver’s seat when it comes to making the playoffs. So does that make you feel as uncomfortable as it does us?

On today’s show, hosts Josh Guesman and Kevin Baxter discuss the Galaxy’s big 4-1 win over the Colorado Rapids. That includes time spent talking about Riqui Puig, who just did something that no Galaxy player has done since Landon Donovan. And it includes talking about Gaston Brugman, Julian Araujo, and Douglas Costa. 

Why does the Costa Red Card hurt the Galaxy? And will Vanney change the formation in San Jose to account for Costa’s absence?

Plus, did the Galaxy really give up possession to counterattack? Or did we see something different from the club? Did they possess with speed and focus?

Let’s be clear. The Galaxy haven’t made the playoffs. But, and hear us out, it’s actually looking pretty good for them. And that feels very different.
