PODCAST: What a difference a Puig makes. LA Galaxy down Houston. Ready for Nashville and Playoffs

The LA Galaxy have totally turned around a season in the final 11 games. Look no further than Riqui Puig and Gaston Brugman for why.

COG STUDIOS, Calif. — The LA Galaxy easily handled the Houston Dynamo on Sunday afternoon. And the three goals the Galaxy scored could have been more, but the dominance would have continued regardless of how little Houston tried to fight back. 

On today’s show, hosts Josh Guesman and Kevin Baxter discuss the Galaxy’s 3-1 win over Houston and talk about how much has changed for the club in a very short amount of time. 

And most of that change can be attributed to two players – Riqui Puig and Gaston Brugman. 

Josh and Kevin will highlight the critical points in the Galaxy’s win over Houston, talk about the incredible season Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez had throughout 34 games, and discuss the difference Puig and Brugman have made in a short time. 

And while the show has been saying it for the last three weeks, something has changed around the league. Your LA Galaxy might even be considered favorites to hoist a cup in 2022. And they know the path that will take them there. 

The guys will talk about some 34-game totals that are interesting while also explaining why we know the Galaxy’s next two playoff games. Should LA clear Nashville – a tough ask on any day – they’d face off against LAFC at Banc of California Stadium. It’s like it’s a movie script or something. 

We’ve got a great show that covers some of the questions facing the front office and why making some offseason moves might come down to whether you can make players happy or not. 

Finally, there are some small lookaheads to Nashville and what that game could look like almost a week out. 

Thanks for joining us on this Playoff Edition. We’re glad you’re along for the ride.
