PODCAST: LA Galaxy can talk about the good things, but it doesn’t put a win on the board.

The LA Galaxy had moments to win their game against LAFC. But if Vanney Ball demands perfection, maybe change the system?

COG STUDIOS, Calif. — The LA Galaxy lost their third game in a row and are now winless in their first seven games – a stat that makes them equal their worst start in franchise history and the worst start in the modern era. So what happens at Dignity Health Sports Park that probably has them gunning for Austin?

On today’s show, hosts Josh Guesman and LA Times Soccer Writer Kevin Baxter discuss the loss to LAFC in El Trafico and why a lot of good play was wasted by moments of terrible decision-making and boneheaded mistakes.

How much did the injury to Chris Mavinga change the game? Was Sega Coulibaly as bad as he looked? What does a lucky bounce mean for Carlos Vela? And why does Josh think the Galaxy neutralized much of what LAFC does well?

Also, what did the stadium sound like, and were LAFC fans taking over the stadium? Is excitement waning in Galaxy Land, even from the non-supporter group fans? Are Greg Vanney and Chris Klein picking a fight with the Supporter Groups?

Finally, which Galaxy great does Josh think is overrated? 

We’ve got a great show for you that will put a bow on the loss to LAFC and get you pointed in the direction of Austin. Are you ready?
