COG MERCHANDISE (SCARVES, T-SHIRTS, BUTTONS, COASTERS): STUDIOS, Calif. -- They were on a plane as we recorded, and they'll be training across the country on Thursday to try and end a four-game losing streak. Can the Galaxy beat Orlando City on Friday night? On today's show, your hosts Josh Guesman and Sophie Nicolaou are here to get you ready for a big game for the Galaxy that might tell you how their remaining games will turn out before the international break. First, Josh and Sophie will discuss the latest Galaxy news that has 17-year-old right back Julian Araujo being called into the U.S. U-20 team for the Under-20 World Cup in Poland. It was a surprise last-minute call-up, and the Galaxy didn't have to release him, but should the Galaxy have kept him when the team's depth seems to be an issue?Then your hosts will discuss the rest of the club's international call-ups and how that will leave them very shorthanded for up to four games. With seven players eligible for selection -- including Araujo and Efrain Alvarez at the U-17 level for Mexico -- can the Galaxy still field a competitive team? Even when there are five starters missing?Josh and Sophie will then turn their attention to all the great listener questions and also kick around some ridiculous rumors while also expanding on what the MLS Collective Bargaining Agreement might mean for players, for travel, and for the restrictive nature of the salary cap. Finally, they'll dive into the game against Orlando City as Sophie gives you the proper dramatic intro and what the keys to the game could be for the Galaxy. Does the defense have chemistry? Will the club be able to handle Nani? And can the Galaxy stop their slide before the Gold Cup break?We've got over 75-minutes of Galaxy-talk just waiting for you!Music Provided by Back Pocket Memory
COG MERCHANDISE (SCARVES, T-SHIRTS, BUTTONS, COASTERS): STUDIOS, Calif. -- The LA Galaxy just lost to the worst team in Major League Soccer. Does that mean they've hit rock bottom? Or is there an argument to be made the Galaxy took a step forward in that loss? There can't be, right?On today's show, your hosts Josh Guesman and Kevin Baxter are ready to discuss the Galaxy's loss to the previously winless Colorado Rapids. The guys are going to start with the lineups and then tear right through to the condensed schedule that could see the Galaxy's four-game losing streak extended. Did Guillermo Barros Schelotto use his roster right? Josh and Kevin will talk about the Galaxy's failure to score despite generating some real chances on the night. And how did Favio Alvarez fair in his MLS and Galaxy debut? But the big question they'll attempt to answer is why the Galaxy put 33 crosses into the box in search of a tiny Emmanuel Boateng? Was there something there the Galaxy were trying to exploit? Or was it the remnants of Zlatan Ibrahimovic's suspension?Josh will even get into why the Galaxy armband went to the right player when Jonathan dos Santos came off the field, and this touches off a better discussion about Dan Steres, and who should get the armband going forward. WHY IS THERE SO MUCH DAN STERES HATE? The guys have a packed show that is examining the reason behind the four-game skid while also trying to put it into the perspective of the full season. Are the Galaxy still a playoff team? Are they worse than we thought? Better than we thought?All of that can be found on another 60 or more minutes of Galaxy-talk that is "rapidly" (too soon?) coming your way!Music Provided by Back Pocket Memory

But Josh and Eric will be focusing in on the absences that you can expect from these tournaments and which games could be affected. Then they'll move on to talk about schedule congestion and how it could derail everything the Galaxy have going for them. Finally, the guys will zero-in on the U-17 CONCACAF Championship and why the Galaxy are well represented in the tournament before shifting focus to the Game against Colorado.Do you expect Ibrahimovic to be suspended?

COG MERCHANDISE (SCARVES, T-SHIRTS, BUTTONS, COASTERS): STUDIOS, Calif. -- Another loss puts the LA Galaxy against the proverbial wall and makes this week a crucial part of their recovery before facing off against the Colorado Rapids. But before we get too far away, the Galaxy are down two Designated Players. And that was very evident in their defeat to New York City FC on Saturday afternoon.

COG MERCHANDISE (SCARVES, T-SHIRTS, BUTTONS, COASTERS): STUDIOS, Calif. -- The LA Galaxy are coming off back-to-back losses for the first time this season and never looked comfortable as the Columbus Crew ran them into the ground during their midweek loss. Does that mean Guillermo Barros Schelotto got it all wrong?On today's show, your hosts Josh Guesman and Larry Morgan are back to talk some Galaxy. They're going to do the usual show stuff of getting you updated on Galaxy news, but they're also really going to dig into the problems in Columbus. To start, the guys will discuss the issue of fatigue. Do professional soccer players need that much rest between games? And do they need it after only 11 games in the season? If you're a fatigue-denier, you're going to want to listen. Because facts don't lie, that's what makes them facts. And the guys will talk about the other big problem with the Galaxy's loss, and that's the injury to Jonathan dos Santos. What does that mean for the Galaxy? And what does it mean heading into a weekend match with a team that has been sneaky good?Josh and Larry will also discuss the addition of Favio Alvarez and tell you that his paperwork issues could keep him off the team sheet come Saturday. But they'll give you looks and lineups for both scenarios, and they both don't include dos Santos.Finally, the guys get you ready for the New York City match complete with a Larry Morgan dramatic intro to the game, and you'll get to hear Josh's sure-to-be-wrong picks for the outcome. It's a packed show full of Galaxy-talk, Britney Spears, Taylor Swift and that one time Larry went to Wango Tango. Are you ready for some soccer-talk?Music provided by Back Pocket Memory.
COG MERCHANDISE (SCARVES, T-SHIRTS, BUTTONS, COASTERS): STUDIOS, Calif. -- We haven't done a Monday night podcast coming off of a loss since the beginning of March. And with the LA Galaxy loss at the New York Red Bulls, we've got a lot to talk about especially as the Galaxy get ready for a midweek game against the Columbus Crew.Your hosts, Josh Guesman, and Kevin Baxter are back to discuss the Galaxy's loss and why VAR played a significant role. They'll also explain why this loss is probably following a more vital, more general trend of the Galaxy performing poorly -- they've just gotten the results before this.Did New York do something to the Galaxy that caused the poor performance, did the club's body clock get in the way of a successful outing in New Jersey, and did Jonathan dos Santos have his worst game of the season?Josh and Kevin will also update you on how the Galaxy manufactured money and why Favio Alvarez is the player Dennis te Kloese hinted at earlier this year. Did the Galaxy have to get more TAM to sign Alvarez? And could things still go sideways before the Primary Transfer Window closes shut at 9:59 p.m. PT?Finally, the guys will get you ready for Guillermo Barros Schelotto's homecoming, as he heads back to Columbus to on the Crew. It's an early game out West, and that might not be good for the Galaxy.It's a battle between two teams who are headed in opposite directions -- Columbus has lost their last five games, and with a win, the Galaxy could take over first in the Western Conference and the Supporters Shield. And the Galaxy will be the only Western Conference team to play on Wednesday night. That means they'll have a chance to pick up points that no one else can, right now. Putting them in the drivers' seat this weekend. It's a busy month for the Galaxy, and we're here to talk you through it. Are you a fan of VAR? Or would you like to see it go away?Music Provided by Back Pocket Memory

First, the guys want to talk about the most MLS trade of all-time. That's right, the Galaxy and Minnesota just traded cash for cash. Josh is on hand to explain it, and it means good things for the Galaxy. So really, nothing to worry about here. Then they'll quantify the Galaxy's ridiculously good April before moving on to the newest rumors that have surfaced about who the club is looking to land in the transfer window. Josh and Eric give you the two Argentines who might end up on the Galaxy roster and why one of them has a lot of buzz behind them and could be arriving in LA on Friday. They've warned you about how tight the schedule could be in May, and now they're going to tell you how many points they think the Galaxy could earn during the month by going game-by-game. Which of our hosts has the Galaxy winning more games? Finally, it's a look at the Red Bulls and the Galaxy. The guys will tell you why the Galaxy could Win. Or they could lose. Or they could draw.

COG MERCHANDISE (SCARVES, T-SHIRTS, BUTTONS, COASTERS): STUDIOS, Calif. -- The LA Galaxy finished out a very successful month of April with a win over Real Salt Lake on Sunday evening. It was another case of the club not playing perfect soccer, but doing enough to win the game. And the best player on the field for the Galaxy was readily apparent. On today's show, your hosts, reporters Josh Guesman and Kevin Baxter, are back to talk about the imperfect Galaxy and why their shortcomings might mean the best is yet to come.Did you get a glimpse of how good the Galaxy can be during the first half of the game? Josh thinks you did and he's willing to explain. Also, the Galaxy shouldn't try and hide behind fatigue for the reason they were not good in the second half of the win. But that second half also saw them score the game-winning goal. The guys will even dive into Zlatan Ibrahimovic's ridiculous goalscoring pace and why you already know what you're going to get from his behavior. And yes, it's going to hurt the club. But that's part of the Ibrahimovic package. Did you think he was out of line with his trash talking against Real Salt Lake? Do you think his teammates are sick of his act on the field? Does winning cure everything?The guys will also discuss the long-term injury to Romain Alessandrini and why Chris Pontius is the short term answer to the Galaxy's offensive injury problems and why the club is running out of time to sign a versatile playmaker.Finally, the guys take a look at the Galaxy's hectic May schedule. And Kevin will clue you in on how the Galaxy plan on using one of their four charter flights coming soon. It's a packed show that is sure to have you laugh, scream, and enjoy the more than 70 minutes of Galaxy-talk. Music Provided by Back Pocket Memory
Use Ibrahimovic more. Galaxy depend on his movement by Corner Of The Galaxy
COG MERCHANDISE (SCARVES, T-SHIRTS, BUTTONS, COASTERS): STUDIOS, Calif. -- It's a short week for the LA Galaxy as they have to quickly put away their victory over the Houston Dynamo and get ready for a midweek game at Minnesota United.Your hosts Josh Guesman and Kevin Baxter are busy getting you all the relevant stats for the Galaxy's two games this week as they also get you through the victory they were able to grind out against a surprisingly good Dynamo. First, the guys will tell you their big takeaways from the Friday night victory were. That includes the injuries to Romain Alessandrini, and Emmanuel Boateng, and why the Julian Araujo, Diego Polenta, and Jonathan dos Santos were some crucial to the Galaxy's win. And are the Galaxy relying on Zlatan Ibrahimovic too much? Josh feels strongly that the Galaxy probably aren't even tapping into Ibrahimovic's true potential yet and that the offense will just need to develop around him. Kevin might disagree!Next, the guys update you on just where the 2019 Galaxy are sitting in comparison to their other starts, and why this team bears a striking resemblance to another season that ended with an MLS Cup. Finally, the guys are getting you ready for a Minnesota team that is looking to get its first win at home this season while also playing shorthanded thanks to a couple of late-game red cards over the weekend. Should the Galaxy be looking at all three points versus Minnesota? And with a much more difficult schedule coming up, can the club get maximum points from the two games this week?We've got over 60 minutes of Galaxy-talk just waiting for you, and we're glad that you joined us on a hectic Galaxy week!Music Provided by Back Pocket Memory
