PODCAST: An Opening Loss highlights the changes needed for LA Galaxy

The LA Galaxy lose a season-opener for the first time since 2017, and now the real work begins. Can Greg Vanney add the right pieces?

COG STUDIOS, Calif. — FC Dallas scored three unanswered goals on Saturday night. And the LA Galaxy didn’t really have an answer. Nor did they have any width or wingers. So why are significant changes expected over the first half of this season?

On today’s show, host Josh Guesman (Kevin Baxter is on Vacation) talks about the Galaxy’s 3-1 loss to Dallas and why there’s much to be desired outside of the Galaxy’s midfield. 

Josh will start by breaking down the game into sections. He’ll talk about Dejan Joveljic, who scored a goal but was mostly absent on the night, and the defense that looked like they didn’t know how to play together. 

Why was Josh hyped about Jalen Neal and Preston Judd making their MLS debuts? And why could all back four positions be changed around?

Could the Galaxy’s backline feature three players under 22? And why would the Galaxy be wise to get that going as soon as possible?

Plus, what do the current left-back rumors say about Greg Vanney’s trust in Raheem Edwards? And could Edwards be the winger you’ve been waiting for?

We’ve got a great little show for you today. And we’ve delighted you could join us!
