That's where the LA Galaxy's winless streak now stands, and they've got some tough prospects coming up midweek and this weekend. On today's show, hosts Josh Guesman and Kevin Baxter discuss the Galaxy's latest debacle and why Greg Vanney might be correct, but he still can't divorce himself from the results of the loss at Austin FC. The Guys will start with some numbers talk as they look at the Galaxy's play against Austin. Why did Vanney and Jonathan dos Santos both talk about execution after the game? And did the 2-0 loss come down to missed chances? What about the defense? Will they need to be perfect down the stretch for LA? And are the Galaxy even a playoff team anymore? Josh and Kevin will also discuss the chances that Dennis te Kloese gets all the blame if the season goes sideways and why one win really could mean the difference for a Galaxy team that is mentally fragile at this point. Expert analysis boiled down to "score first" and "be a better team." It may sound pedestrian, but the guys will make it sound way more exciting than that. But the base idea is still the same. So for the Galaxy, it definitely comes down to either executing when it counts or being executed before the season is over. How do the Galaxy make you feel right now? Can you take a positive mindset into Wednesday's match against Real Salt Lake? Let's go. Let's get this show going so that we can all find out what happens after the ball is kicked on Wednesday night!

And really, they have no one to blame but themselves. But a trip to take on Austin FC might be enough to get the club back on track. So why might the Galaxy look to allow Austin to control the game on Sunday night? And just how important is the first goal of this game? Hosts Josh Guesman and Sophie Nicolaou join you for over 75 minutes of Galaxy-talk that will get you ready for the game this Sunday and many of the upcoming events at Dignity Health Sports Park and the unveiling of the Landon Donvan statue. Josh and Sophie will talk you through FIFA 2022 rankings. Sophie will tell you just what type of hardcore gamer she is, and then they'll both tell you why they've never snuck into a party they weren't invited to. Plus, there will be some talk about David Beckham, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and of course, Elizabeth Taylor. Your hosts will also give you the schedule for Donovan's statue unveiling and tell you why you can go to a LA Galaxy II game on October 2nd! Something that hasn't happened all year. Finally, there's some look at the upcoming schedule, a look at the balance of the last eight games of the season, and eventually, that will lead to a robust discussion about which way the Galaxy play the best. The game at Q2 Stadium is a big deal. And the Galaxy need to get all three points to help stabilize their slide. After all, both Portland and Real Salt Lake are right on their heels. We've got a packed show for you, so don't miss it. As always, thanks for playing along with us, and we'll catch you next time!
