With long lines to get into the stadium in both the parking lot and entrance gates, the LA Galaxy were already burning goodwill. But to come out flat against a Dallas side that was intent on destroying you and having no reaction? That's not how playoff teams are made. And it's not how Champions react. On today's show, hosts Josh Guesman and Kevin Baxter want to break down the loss to Dallas. And even when the defense gives up three goals, the main focus will be on the offense. Because the Galaxy have proven to be a good defensive team, but they haven't proven to be a good offensive team. Josh and Kevin will talk about Boxing's big day at Dignity Health Sports Park and why the stadium over-extended itself. And why, if you were one of the people scrambling to get inside the stadium, you would have done better staying outside? And if Chicharito is slumping and bringing on Dejan Joveljic doesn't change anything, then you need to look at how you put them in the best positions. So who is going to make the angling balls, and who is going to make the run dictate the pass? The games are coming fast and furious now. The Galaxy will play Minnesota United midweek, Houston over the weekend, LAFC next week in the Open Cup, and then close out the month with Austin. So how does Vanney manage that stretch of games? And do the Galaxy have a problem winning the big games -- winning those that will move them up the standings? We've got a great show for you today. And you're going to want to catch every single word!

Or is it part of the magic of the cup - surviving these early rounds to get to the games that actually matter? And what happens when a US Open Cup midweek game in May just became the most crucial game of the month for the Galaxy? We're telling you why a US Open Cup El Trafico will be the biggest game in the country. On today's show, hosts Josh Guesman and Eric Vieira want to get you ready for FC Dallas this weekend. But in order to do that, they'll need to tell you about the victory over California United Strikers and about the wacky Open Cup draw that now sees the Galaxy just four games from a trophy. The guys will start with the almost expectedly flat performance against a third division team and why Greg Vanney had the entire team at a small field in Orange County to witness a 3-2 win. But when Josh and Eric look at the matchup with FC Dallas, do they see an even game? Or do they see a game that might give Dallas an edge? Will it be the battle of two great defenses? Or is Dallas relying on their offense on top of having a really solid defense? This could be an ugly game. And if it is ugly, is that because the Galaxy are taking Dallas out of their game? We've got a packed show on a Thursday night. And we're thrilled you could join us!

Or do they make teams play ugly because they're a formidable defensive challenge? Coming off of a 1-0 victory over one of Major League Soccer's top-ranked offenses, the Galaxy are creating their own defensive identity. And that means things aren't always going to look so pretty. But does that mean you can't be concerned about the offense? Because you probably should be. Hosts Josh Guesman and Kevin Baxter discuss the Galaxy's win over Austin against a team that hadn't been beaten at home all year. What do the 19 points from 10 games mean? And do you feel like there's some sustainability to the defensive record? Josh and Kevin will discuss the faltering Galaxy offense and why Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez, Douglas Costa, Efrain Alvarez, and Kevin Cabral all need to find the back of the net. And Josh will name a Galaxy player that doesn't get enough crap for not sticking the ball into the back of the net and could have seen the Galaxy easily walk past Austin. Plus, the guys will talk about the US Open Cup match with Cal United Strikers on Wednesday and tell you who's making an appearance for Galaxy, who hasn't been seen at the stadium for a very long time. Here's a hint: it starts with a "T" and ends with a "wizzle." If you know, you know. The guys have a packed show tonight, and they're delighted you took time out of your Monday night to talk some Galaxy with them!

Hosts Josh Guesman and Christian Miles discuss the newest addition to the roster and discuss the positional flexibility the "pure left-back" brings to a Galaxy team that needs depth at the position. Plus, what did Greg Vanney say about Jorge Villafana and the recovery he's still trying to make? The news on that front isn't good. Josh and Christian will also talk about the Galaxy's slow play over the last three games and forecast that it will have to end against their Sunday opponents, Austin FC. What will the Galaxy likely do and not do against the highest-scoring offense in the league? And will this be a perfect game for the Galaxy to stretch their legs and run a team into the ground? We've got a packed show for you, and Josh literally got off the plane and ran to record this show. So if he falls asleep during it, blame Texas BBQ. Happy Mother's Day to all the mom's out there. We appreciate all you do to bring kids into the world and teach them soccer! Right?

The lack of creativity in this lineup is starting to show itself. And while Kevin Cabral had been firmly in the crosshairs before this game, he cemented his position and started to drag Douglas Costa and Efrain Alvarez with him. On today's show, hosts Josh Guesman and Kevin Baxter discuss the Galaxy's lack of creativity and why they think this club will need something different. Either that's getting Victor Vazquez back and healthy or by going out and grabbing a CAM in the summer transfer window. But like so much of this early season, this show will revolve around Cabral's inability to make an impact on the game and why Dejan Joveljic is the hot hand that needs more playing time. Will Vanney's defensive balance be thrown away by the club in favor of more scoring? Or does it make more sense to get Joveljic minutes in place of the biggest goal-scoring threat for the Galaxy? What do you make of two Designated Players that are injury prone and two Designated Players that have shown relatively little in the way of production in the goals or assists category? We've got an entire show of discussions on formations, chances created, and expected goals — all hoping to get the best players on the field for LA. Thanks for joining us!
PODCAST: Who are the Galaxy afraid of? It shouldn't be Real Salt Lake. - SUBSCRIBE TO OUR PODCAST: http://cornerofthegalaxy.com/subscribe/ - COG LA GALAXY DISCORD: https://discord.gg/drr9HFZY2P - COG MERCHANDISE (SCARVES, T-SHIRTS, BUTTONS, COASTERS): http://www.cornerofthegalaxy.com/SHOP COG STUDIOS, Calif. -- Have your views on the LA Galaxy shifted? Is there any team that the Galaxy should be afraid of? And looking at the schedule, do you see anyone who should cause the Galaxy problems? Josh Guesman and Eric Vieira are back to discuss the Galaxy's psychological change and why you should be feeling confident heading into their match with Real Salt Lake this weekend. They guys will start by continuing the Dejan Joveljic conversation. They'll play audio from Greg Vanney that gives his side of the Joveljic debate, and they'll talk about Kevin Cabral's benching and why it should probably continue. Plus, there's more tactical talk regarding the slight shift in formation that Vanney made against Nashville. Josh and Eric will also discuss the Galaxy's Open Cup game and why it should be a fantastic time in a small stadium. So maybe try to be on your best behavior? It's not every day in the United States we get these kinds of experiences. And the guys will also talk about a nearly $30 bowl of chicken and waffle fries that has Twitter a-stir. Is the food too expensive at the stadium? Are you simply a captive audience. Are you being milked by the Galaxy? Finally, Josh and Eric will get you ready for the Galaxy's match against Real Salt Lake. They're a team that is hard to figure out. Will the Galaxy be playing against the team that lost 6-0 to New York City? Or against the team that lost to a lower level in the Open Cup? Or the team that just drew Portland and has beaten Nashville? We've got a great show for you. And as always, we're so thankful you decided to join us!

But there's a bigger question being asked of Greg Vanney. And like usual, that question revolves around Kevin Cabral and how he can justify playing a winger who seems incapable of scoring for a forward who's a pure finisher. On today's show, hosts Josh Guesman and Kevin Baxter discuss the issue now firmly in Vanney's hands and their takes on it. Josh and Kevin will also lean heavily into formation talk and analytics as they explain Vanney's reasoning behind the faith in Cabral and why the Galaxy's defense is more important than the Galaxy's offense right now. Plus, why is Sega Coulibaly the biggest surprise of the season, and how come he didn't get the "Team of the Week" nod over Williams? There's also some talk of Douglas Costa playing in a central attacking role and why this formation worked against a Nashville team that seemed allergic to possession and counter-attacking. Exactly how much possession did the Galaxy have in the second half? We've got a great show lined up for you that covers many different topics surrounding the Galaxy's win and their now eight games into the league. Are you a believer in the Galaxy's defense? And are you worried about the defense? As always, thanks for joining us on this very fun podcast. Can the Galaxy keep an undefeated streak in April with one game left?

It's under the lights at Dignity Health Sports Park, which means we're expecting fireworks! Your host Josh Guesman is joined by special co-host Spectrum SportsNet Galaxy sideline reporter Nikki Kay. Nikki makes her way back to the podcast in hosting duties for the second time and the first time in 2022. Josh and Nikki want to get you through the big takeaways from this week in Galaxy news. And they're going to start with the win in the US Open Cup. The San Diego Loyal put together a good showing against a Galaxy team that saw a couple of regulars in the mostly B-Team lineup. But Greg Vanney might have some explaining to do when Chicharito made an appearance deep into the second half. Are you okay with Vanney taking the Open Cup very seriously? And do you worry about the legs of certain players after the midweek tussle with Landon Donovan's side? Nikki will also update you on the Galaxy's media availability from today. And both Josh and Nikki will tell you what to expect from the Open Cup's next round and where the Galaxy will be off to (Irvine). Finally, your hosts will get you ready for the invasion from Nashville. Why is Dave Romney a threat to his old team? Why is Nashville more balanced than they've ever been? And why could the Galaxy exploit some speed and some shotty set-piece defending? We've got a bunch to cover on today's show. And we're delighted Nikki could join us. But we're ecstatic that you chose us to get you ready for this weekend.

No one should talk you out of that analysis. And if they do talk you out of it, have their sight checked. But you also can't simply dismiss what was a gutsy performance, played in challenging conditions, against a team that wanted to play anti-soccer more than score goals. So does that make you feel any better? Probably not. On today's show, hosts Josh Guesman and Kevin Baxter discuss the Galaxy's 0-0 draw with the Fire and discuss what this does for momentum and what it means in the long term. Are the Galaxy capable of being that no. 1 team? Or are they shrinking from every challenge at the top? Josh and Kevin both have very different views of what happened at Soldier Field, and the majority of this podcast will be them arguing about that. It's fun! But the guys are also talking about their live event on Saturday, the news that Michael Stephens is returning to the club as a Director of Scouting, and they're discussing the Galaxy's new local TV deal. Plus, there's a little focus on Landon Donovan's return to Los Angeles when his San Diego Loyal take on the Galaxy in their Open Cup match on Tuesday night. Is all the press on LA? Finally, the guys are cleaning up all the loose ends on Galaxy news and getting you pointed in the direction of Nashville on Saturday night. Can the Galaxy return to their winning ways against another solidly defensive team? We've got a great show all lined up for you. We hope you enjoy it.

Hosts Josh Guesman, Christian Miles, and Kevin Baxter discuss the LA Galaxy before their match with the Chicago Fire. Together, the guys discuss the Galaxy's quick start, how they're playing, and what they expect down the road. They also talk about players to watch for and what the game that took place immediately after the show might bring. We want to send out a big thank you to the LA Galaxy for inviting us out to the event. We're glad that we could meet so many of you, and hopefully, some of you are already new listeners!

They'll take on the Chicago Fire on Saturday in a game that could extend a very long streak for the Galaxy. Hosts Josh Guesman and Eric Vieira are back to get you ready for that road game and catch you up on some Galaxy news and media calls you need to know before watching Saturday's game. Josh and Eric will start by hyping Saturday's live show. Josh and friends (Kevin Baxter, Christian Miles, and Sophie Nicolaou) will be out at the LA Galaxy Sports Complex for the LA Galaxy Block Party in Torrance for a special live show from 3:30 to 4:30 PM. Then they're going to stick around for the watch party where the Galaxy will take on the Fire. The guys will update you on where you can watch the game on Saturday and talk about why that's even a thing just two days from the local broadcast debut. Plus, there's an August 3rd money grab that needs to be explained. We'll tell you why the Galaxy will get to make history at SoFi stadium and why everyone should be concerned about the security implications of putting four powerful fan groups into the same stadium for a double-header. Are you going to SoFi? And should the Galaxy play an A-team lineup? And what does this have to do with future El Trafico's and the 2026 World Cup? Finally, the guys will get you caught up on the joint media call and what you can expect from a defensively sound Chicago side that isn't going to want to give an inch to the questionable Galaxy offense. We've got a packed show for you ahead of a big weekend for the club. As always, thanks for joining us!

And you always know the game's outcome is going to be unpredictable. It's wild and unpredictable. That's El Trafic in a single sentence. But were you prepared for Saturday night's finish? On today's show, hosts Josh Guesman and Kevin Baxter discuss the LA Galaxy win over LAFC and why a derby game is always going to be about who wanted it more. The guys will start by talking about their experience pregame and why they ate so much excellent food! We're looking at you, AFJA, and Vegan Hooligans! But the real exciting part of El Trafico started before kickoff. With a packed stadium, the Galaxy had a flyover and a wicked coin-toss laugh by Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez. Why was Hernandez laughing at Carlos Vela? Plus, Sam Grandsir, Raheem Edwards, Kelvin Leerdam, and others laid it all on the line against LAFC. And it almost fell apart. Why did Galaxy head coach Greg Vanney use five subs? Why did he take Araujo out? Why was the network passing chart so messed up without Mark Delgado? And who was mostly at fault for the Galaxy not getting that third goal? And don't you worry. There will be plenty of talking about the VAR call at the end. In fact, it's funny that it's mentioned so much because it was one of the most straightforward calls they could have made. And anyone arguing against it wants you to ignore two offside players both getting shots at the goal so that the injustice can wrongly be flipped to the Galaxy? Do we have your attention now? Finally, we'll get you updated on our Live Show at the LA Galaxy's Block Party (join us on Saturday), discuss the Galaxy's Open Cup game against San Diego, and discuss what the Galaxy is running into in Chicago this weekend.

The LA Galaxy are hosting the first El Trafico of the 2022 season, and Chicharito is rounding into form. But with LAFC undefeated in their first five games, are they the most significant threat they've ever been? On today's show, hosts Josh Guesman and Sophie Nicholaou discuss one of the season's biggest games. And this year, it starts at Dignity Health Sports Park, with the Galaxy missing a key piece of their midfield. Josh and Sophie will get you caught up on the Galaxy news that dropped throughout the week. That includes a special chance to hang out with the podcast on April 16th. Stay tuned for more details. Your hosts discuss Disciplinary Committee decisions regarding Mark Delgado and why the Galaxy are absolutely targeting a center-back who is currently playing for Watford. But with eight CB's on the roster right now? Do the Galaxy have a hoarding problem? And why are we sure they're interested? Plus, Josh and Sophie want to compare and contrast the leadership differences between Carlos Vela and Javier Hernandez. Can what we observe from the outside be what is happening behind closed doors? Does Vela even like people? Finally, there's some in-depth conversation regarding the El Trafico. We'll throw a ton of stats your way, talk about the lack of experience with actual El Trafico's on the Galaxy side and tell you why Kevin Cabral is the key to unlocking the Galaxy's defense -- again! It's the most electric rivalry in Los Angeles, and treating it differently would be crazy. So when is the game moving to SoFi? We've got a great show for you, and we hope you stay safe and smart as you make your way to the stadium on Saturday!

But Chicharito is scoring goals, and the Galaxy did things they wouldn't have done in 2021. On today's show, hosts Josh Guesman and Kevin Baxter discuss the win over the Timbers, talk about some pregame activities that didn't make the broadcast, and start to get you ready for the first El Trafico of 2022. The guys will start with their recap of the Galaxy's win in Portland and how Efrain Alvarez stepped up to create enough offense while Sam Grandsir, Kevin Cabral, and Chicharito all made the Timbers pay for some lax defense and bad fouls. Plus, Josh will tell you why not knowing what a foul was in this game led to the Galaxy getting a red card, Portland getting a red card, and the second half being the least predictable match in MLS over the weekend. And the players, coaches, and other officials all knew it! Josh and Kevin will then break down some of the charts that explain where the Galaxy are through five games and why we're cautiously watching what Chicharito is doing in 2022. And that drumbeat gets louder for Mexico's all-time goal scorer to join up with them for Qatar 2022. Will Tata finally relent? Finally, the guys talk about the addition of Preston Judd to the first team roster and why Greg Vanney is making that move now. Are you ready for the Galaxy to take on LAFC? We'll tell you about the white-out in the stadium for Saturday and other team news you need to know. Join us for 60-plus minutes of Galaxy-talk on a Monday night. You won't be disappointed.

Well, if you listen to this podcast regularly, there's a good chance that you were at the Stadium four years ago watching the craziest game in MLS history unfold. And in less than 20 minutes of total time, Zlatan Ibrahimovic announced himself to the United States, Los Angeles, the LA Galaxy, and the world. Zlatan was back. On today's show, hosts Josh Guesman and Eric Vieira discuss the Miracle on March 31st, discuss Zlatan's impact on the world that day, and ultimately how that 2018 team didn't make the playoffs. But it's not about living in the past. It's all about acknowledging the biggest goal in MLS history and what the Stadium felt like on that day. Josh and Eric will then dive into Greg Vanney's media call today. They'll get you updated on the health status of Douglas Costa and why his injury certainly shouldn't be a surprise to anyone. Also, they'll listen to Vanney talk about the two-forward system and why Dejan Joveljic needs time to find a balance with Chicharito. But do you believe that Vanney is telling the truth about how the Galaxy would need to cede possession if Chicharito and Joveljic played together? Or is there more to this? Finally, the guys get you ready for a difficult start to April and why winning in Portland would go a long way to stabilizing the Galaxy ahead of some challenging games. Will Portland invite the Galaxy to have possession? Will this be a repeat of the Galaxy's losses to Seattle and Orlando? What needs to change to make the Galaxy as dangerous of a team as some statisticians say? We'll talk about it all in 80-minutes of Galaxy-talk! Thanks for joining us!

But this Sunday's game will first have to see some international players return. And if we're being honest, a couple of them should be getting regular call-ups and playing time, especially for Mexico. On today's show, hosts Josh Guesman and Kevin Baxter look at two players who should have a more significant role with El Tri but currently don't. And they look at how that could benefit the Galaxy if it all fell into place. But will Julian Araujo flourish under Tata Martino, or will he continue to ride the bench? And is the pressure getting to him? Have we seen that with both the Galaxy and Mexico? Plus, is Mexico making the same mistake as Jurgen Klinsmann and Sweden? Are they letting their pride keep them from capturing the last competitive breaths of one of their country's greatest goal-scorers? So what does Javier Hernandez need to do with the Galaxy to get Tata's attention? Josh and Kevin will also dive into the Galaxy's demanding schedule, tell you why the Galaxy still don't have a TV deal they've told us about yet, and why there are three or four pretenders above the playoff line in the Western Conference. And the Galaxy might be one of them. We've got a packed show tonight, and we're moving at an unusually quick clip. So buckle up for the return of CoG after a relaxing Thursday off!

And while there's some criticism of the defense, we think the offense needs to kick it into gear more than the defense. And Kevin Cabral, FINISH YOUR CHANCES! Kevin Baxter is away for World Cup Qualifying on today's show, so it's up to Josh Guesman to hold down the show all by himself. Josh will start by talking about pupusas and what an absolutely gorgeous Saturday we were all having until the Galaxy ruined it. The grass looked terrific, the white uniforms sparkled, and it was just the perfect situation to get a win and enjoy the rest of the weekend. Well, that ended in the 9th minute. Was it a defensive breakdown? Yes. Was the defense the problem on Saturday? No. Josh will tell you why Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez couldn't score and why Kevin Cabral was the Galaxy's best player! Also, why Kevin Cabral was the Galaxy's worst player. And it's probably important to gain some perspective on where the Galaxy were last year and what they're doing in the first four games. Plus, Josh will get you audio from Greg Vanney's post-game press call where he focuses on "patience" and what he sees Cabral doing during games. Are you ready to be done with the Cabral experiment? And if you are, who do you place in his spot? Can Vanney be trusted to get the best out of Cabral? And does he have an end to his patience? Finally, Josh will lay out the upcoming schedule for next month and tell you why it doesn't get any easier. In fact, it gets soooooo much harder! Stats, game recap, Victor Vazquez losing his left foot. This pod has it all!

After losing to Seattle last weekend, they're entirely focused on Orlando City and that pesky little Pato they bring. On today's show, hosts Josh Guesman and Sophie Nicolaou are getting you ready for Saturday's early game and telling what else is happening around your Galaxy. Josh will talk with LA Galaxy II head coach Yoann Damet about the double-header coming up on Saturday. And why it's one of your few chances to see G2 play in front of a crowd at home. But the real focus of the show will be on the open media availability on Wednesday and what we learned from a pretty intense day for the Galaxy. Is Vanney ramping this team up to find fitness and reliability? Or is he trying to break bad habits with a lot of hard work? Is the answer both? You'll hear from Vanney and Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez, who talks about playing on concrete and watching the playoffs from his couch. There's some excellent audio there. Finally, Josh and Sophie want to discuss the Galaxy's game against Orlando City and why it might be Kevin Cabral's turn to show some leadership. Can the Galaxy counter the counter? Can the Galaxy control a team that wants control? And can the Galaxy defend a team that might be shaky on defense? We've got a great show lined up for you as you get ready for a big weekend game! Thanks for joining us!

When the LA Galaxy played some of their biggest games and always came up short? Did it feel like that again on Saturday when the Galaxy dominated a Seattle Sounders team but got nothing for it? And did the defense regress back to last year? Is it all too familiar? On today's show, hosts Josh Guesman and Kevin Baxter discuss the Galaxy's 3-2 loss of the Seattle Sounders. The guys will start with the basics, but there are some fundamental questions about the defense and why it broke down in three set-piece opportunities. And yes, we're counting the penalty kick as a set-piece breakdown. And while defense is a team game, there's one individual who bears a lot of the brunt of the collapses -- and that's Julian Araujo. He's mentioned in all three goals and can be directly be blamed for the first two. So what's happening to the wonderkid? And is it a bigger problem to worry about or something he can work through? Is the pressure from Mexico, and those huge expectations, finally getting to him? Or has a more talented Araujo just not figured out how to put it all together in the first three games? And should Greg Vanney be looking to change things up and sit Araujo? Plus, the Galaxy's offense is second in shots but much further down the list in goals. While possession is generating the chances, are the Galaxy missing too many good looks at goal. And who needs to put them in the back of the net? Kevin Cabral is undoubtedly someone to focus on. But Chicharito is also an excellent place to look for more. We've got a fun show with a lot of analysis from the Galaxy's loss, so join us for some Galaxy-talk and see what we got right and what we got wrong!
- SUBSCRIBE TO OUR PODCAST: http://cornerofthegalaxy.com/subscribe/ - COG LA GALAXY DISCORD: https://discord.gg/drr9HFZY2P - COG MERCHANDISE (SCARVES, T-SHIRTS, BUTTONS, COASTERS): http://www.cornerofthegalaxy.com/SHOP COG STUDIOS, Calif. -- The LA Galaxy made it a busy Thursday when they announced defender Eriq Zavaleta as the newest addition to the 2022 Galaxy. And we're fortunate enough to have Eriq on our show today. Hosts Josh Guesman and Christian Miles welcome Zavaleta to the show and talk about coming to Los Angeles, seeing the sun regularly, and getting the keys to Greg Vanney's car. Plus, they'll discuss the differences of a championship team and why he sees some of those building blocks with the Galaxy. Then the guys will jump into the Galaxy's current roster and why adding a sixth center back might have been a smart move. Especially at the price point he's likely to be coming in at. But with only two roster spots, what does Vanney have in mind? And why is one of the spots depth at right-back after some bad injury news on Jorge Villafaña? Josh and Christian will also talk about Julian Araujo's humanitarian award and why that doesn't conflict with his hard-nosed on-field persona. Plus, there's a little talk about LA Galaxy II, the start of their season, and why you probably won't be going to their games this year. Finally, the guys are getting you ready for a challenging game against a Seattle Sounders side that may have just found their form. Can the Galaxy get another win to start the season? Another shutout? We've got a packed show for you today, and we're delighted you could join us!
