We hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving break, but we're ready to get back to LA Galaxy business. And there was a lot of business to decipher. On today's show, hosts Josh Guesman and Kevin Baxter (from Mexico) want to get you caught up on all the Galaxy news that dropped over the holiday weekend. An there's a surprising amount, even if the events themselves weren't unexpected. Josh and Kevin will start by discussing the departure of Dennis te Kloese to Feyenoord and why the Galaxy aren't blameless in his leaving. But will te Kloese have a legacy? And what would that legacy be? Plus, who will take over in the General Manager role, and why is a Technical Director different from a GM? Plus, the guys want to look at the announcement that Jonathan dos Santos won't be returning to the club in 2022. At 31-years-old is dos Santos a victim of poor systems or a body that couldn't keep up with MLS anymore. Josh and Kevin will then go over the roster decisions the club announced today and tell you why the Galaxy really didn't do much with their option declines and out-of-contract players. But shopping for a Designated Player has already started. Finally, the show will go over the offseason calendar that MLS released and tell you why the Galaxy get to take the 2022 Expansion Draft as a snow day. We've got a packed show that includes a wintery mix of Galaxy news and analysis. Are the Galaxy better off with te Kloese gone? Thanks for joining us!

But we also want to let you know that the LA Galaxy may not be wrapping up yet. Are you confused? Don't worry. We're here to unconfuse you. And you're going to want to stick around for a little story about a little turkey (only one nine-pound turkey was harmed in the making of this podcast) Host Josh Guesman wants to update you on the Galaxy's offseason schedule and why some players have already flown the coop. Why is the club in voluntary workouts? And what is the technical staff doing behind the scenes? Josh wants to talk briefly about Jalen Neal, why the Galaxy should be at home for the first weekend of the league, and why playing against Charlotte FC might be one of the largest crowds in league history. Have you already booked your hotel? Are you thinking of flying into CLT? We promise there won't be any jokes... Your turkey-eating host will also discuss MLS odds for who could win the MLS Cup, Dennis te Kloese and an announcement on his future, and when the Galaxy might be letting everyone in on their Option Declines and Out-of-Contract players. Soon is the answer. But how soon? Will they ruin Josh's off-week? Finally, Josh will take you back to Maryland, where he'll talk about a tiny turkey that ended up feeding a whole room of people. It's a Thanksgiving miracle of sorts (not really). And Josh would also like to reaffirm his love for his mother-in-law and his wife. Really. He loves them both! Happy Thanksgiving from everyone at CoG! Enjoy some time with your family and maybe don't make room for those vegetables!

So on this episode, hosts Josh Guesman and Kevin Baxter (joining from Jamaica) decide to update you on a whole bunch of things that concern the Galaxy and the city of Los Angeles. Josh and Kevin will start by discussing the Galaxy's international players and what they've been up to during the last break before the MLS playoffs kick-off and then wrap up. They'll talk about players like Niko Hamalainen and Rayan Raveloson and what their travel schedules could have meant during the playoffs. Plus, will Oniel Fisher face off against Sebastian Lletget on Tuesday night? Then Kevin will drop some hints on when the MLS home openers could drop while also discussing the FIFA tour of Los Angeles. Will LA get a World Cup Final again? Finally, the guys discuss Dennis te Kloese's future with the Galaxy and why an option year doesn't always mean the club has an option. That's right, we're talking about performance metrics, and those could affect the Galaxy's season. Will Dan Steres be staying with the Galaxy in 2022? And what could that mean for Sebastian Lletget too? Will Greg Vanney be wheeling and dealing as he looks to place some pieces on a team that missed the playoffs? We've got a fun little show for you today. And we're trying to pack everything in before the Thanksgiving week shuts everything down -- including us. So sit back and relax. We've got offseason Galaxy-talk heading your way!

Can some big roster decisions make it a fortress again? Do you feel like 2021 needs a redo? I almost do! COG STUDIOS, Calif. -- The LA Galaxy are being thrust into offseason mode much too quickly. With the MLSPA releasing their list of Free Agents for the 2022 season, decisions are going to be made very soon on the futures of several Galaxy players that have called LA home for a while. Hosts Josh Guesman and Eric Vieira are back to get you prepped for an offseason that won't have a ton of flexibility, but the Galaxy are hoping for familiarity to avoid another sad, beautiful, tragic season at Dignity Health Sports Park. But we're considering ourselves the lucky one to be here explaining what the Galaxy need to take into consideration when it comes to veteran players who do more than their time on the field would suggest. Can the Galaxy afford to bring back guys like Sacha Kljestan and Victor Vazquez knowing that as their bodies age everything has changed? This is just the first of many roster discussions Josh and Eric will be having in the offseason and they're also sprinkling in some stats on the improvement of the team from 2020 and maybe why that shouldn't be considered apples to oranges. How many goals better was the Galaxy's defense? And how many points of improvement should you expect in 2022? We've got a lot of details to share, and we'll tell you why Larry Morgan and Cog are never ever getting back together. Thanks for joining us on a very special night, and hopefully this won't be the last time we see you. A new season is already upon us. It's time to begin again!

Can we talk about a blown call in a game that was more than 1,500 miles away? Can we blame a team that couldn't get it done at home? And can we say goodbye to a member of CoG that has been integral to its success? Well, we're going to talk about all of it. We're going to go over a game the Galaxy shouldn't have lost, and we're going to talk about a coach that got some things wrong on the night. And while doing all of that, we're going to look back on a season that had plenty of opportunities and very little execution. The bottom line is that this Galaxy team wasn't ready to be in the playoffs. And playing against Minnesota at home, they didn't have the experience to get a result. We'll also discuss Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez and why Julian Araujo has a lot to learn about the really big games. Finally, we'll talk about Dennis te Kloese's future with the Galaxy and figure out why that situation may come to a head very quickly. The offseason starts right now, and we've got a lot to cover in a relatively short amount of time!

All that, plus some NWSL playoffs, and we wish Captain Ozzie Alonso a happy birthday!

And it's going to be two hours of absolute mayhem. Are you ready for Decision Day on steroids? Are you ready for multiple scenarios that get the Galaxy to the post-season? On today's show, hosts Josh Guesman and Sophie Nicolaou discuss the Galaxy's draw with Seattle, the lineup choices Greg Vanney made, and the stuttering development of a Young Designated Player that got it all wrong and could still cost the Galaxy a playoff spot. Josh and Sophie want to get at the heart of the Galaxy's woes over the last five seasons and why a big club like the Galaxy can't fill the seats. Is it only about winning? Or is it something else? Are the Galaxy missing characters? Are they missing stars? Your hosts are also updating you on Dennis te Kloese's contract and why the Galaxy picked up his option. Does that mean that te Kloese is staying for 2022? Not. So. Fast. Josh will introduce the players he thinks will make the end-of-the-year awards for the Galaxy and why one name, in particular, keeps popping up. Could we see history with the Player of the Year and Defender of the Year awards going to the same person? Finally, Josh and Sophie want to get you ready for a "must-win" game that is both a must-win and not a must-win. It isn't very clear, but we're more than prepared to explain what's about to happen. Keep your phones handy during the match. This show is over 90 minutes of Galaxy-talk that you'll need ahead of the simultaneous kick-offs on Sunday. Can the Galaxy beat a Minnesota United team that only needs a draw to get into the playoffs? This is it! The last show of the regular season. Will we be back on Monday to preview the playoffs? Or will we be starting the post-mortem of a 2021 season that went well off the rails? Let's go!

And an uninspiring loss to Sporting KC may have taught them their most important lesson before their two biggest games of the season. On today's show, host Josh Guesman wants to walk you through all the Galaxy's mistakes against SKC and tell you why they can't afford to make them again. Plus, there's a lot of league news that you're going to want to know before the Galaxy travel to Seattle for some Monday night football. Josh will start with taking apart the Galaxy's loss to SKC and talk about how the stats will make this game closer than it was. Sure Sporting only got two shots on goal, and sure the Galaxy had the same number on their side, but in actuality, the Galaxy got played off the field in this game, and a lot of it has to do with not finding the vertical seams in SKC defense. Plus, Victor Vazquez, Jonathan dos Santos, and Rayan Raveloson were exploited on Wednesday night when the home team was able to pressure them into turnovers. Why did the defense allow two goals? And why do the Galaxy have a big choice to make on Sebastian Lletget? Josh will also look at Designated Players across the league and try and determine if Goals + Assists mean something in the grand scheme of things. Or does it just matter when it matters? We'll explain! And Julian Araujo has been nominated for a bunch of post-season awards, and he's the only player the Galaxy might see win one or two. Plus, we'll be looking at the standings in the Western conference and why we're convinced that the Galaxy will be playing for everything when they face off against Minnesota! Finally, with the Galaxy traveling to Seattle on Sunday, Josh wants to get you ready for the biggest game of the season. Can LA find a way to catch the Sounders unaware? Or will the Galaxy be left to watch the scoreboard through the rest of the week?

If you're an optimist, the draw might give the Galaxy the one point they need to make the playoffs. But both sets of people would agree, the next two games are challenging. And getting results against Sporting KC and the Seattle Sounders would mean the Galaxy earn the post-season spot! On today's show, hosts Josh Guesman and Kevin Baxter discuss the Galaxy's pathetic first-half performance against a bottom-dwelling team in the Western Conference, and why Greg Vanney may have gotten it wrong with the players he chose for the starting lineup. And just how important is Julian Araujo to the Galaxy? Newsflash -- very important! Was that a peek at what the Galaxy might be facing once Araujo moves on from Major League Soccer? But Josh and Kevin are keeping their eyes on the Wednesday night matchup with Sporting KC. Kevin thinks the Galaxy are catching KC at the perfect time. And their schedule and the history of games played Children's Mercy Park might lean into that... almost. Josh thinks that getting a point from both KC and Seattle is key to getting into the playoffs. But with the inconsistency of the entire conference, maybe just a win against Minnesota will be enough? Along the way, the guys are talking about an "elite" level performance from Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez and why a spurt of goals could make a big ripple for the Galaxy and for the Golden Boot. Josh even has a chart for you to look at or something. Finally, the guys preview the Wednesday night matchup, why the Galaxy will be missing another defender, and why SKC might be down a goalkeeper and their leading scorer. There's a lot to discuss, and we're delighted you could join us!

A lot, actually. And we want to share it with you. On today's show, hosts Josh Guesman and Eric Vieira talk about all the pertinent points the Galaxy accomplished against the Dynamo and why it makes Wednesday's game one of the most important of the year. In actuality, it all comes down to allowing Greg Vanney to start thinking about the FC Dallas game before the Houston game was even over. And that's something the Galaxy have failed to accomplish this entire season. And with six points out of nine so far in the week, the Dallas game takes on an importance that might not have been there if the Galaxy don't win midweek. The guys will talk about the significant contributions from the alternate lineup guys like Sacha Kljestan, Efrain Alvarez, and Kevin Cabral. And they'll also focus on Jonathan Bond's clean sheet and Julian Araujo's continued aggressiveness. Even Sebastian Lletget and Jonathan dos Santos get some kind words lobbed in their direction. But the defensive pairing of Nick DePuy and Derrick Williams also deserves some focus. Josh and Eric will also discuss the latest salary numbers and who has spent the most money at each team segment throughout the league. Plus, they'll talk about the dollar cost per point and why it's okay to be spending a lot if you're getting a lot. Finally, the guys will look ahead to a match with FC Dallas that could have the visitors Pepi-less. What's the key to unlocking the Dallas defense? And why should the Galaxy's game plan be to score first... again? We've got a great show for you today, and we're glad we can get you ready for a Saturday night matchup! We'll see you at the game!
LOS ANGELES (Wednesday, Oct. 20, 2021) – Playing the second of three games in the span of eight days, the LA Galaxy earned their second consecutive win with a 3-0 shutout victory on the road over Houston Dynamo FC at PNC Stadium on Wednesday night. Sacha Kljestan registered the game-winning goal and Kévin Cabral notched his fifth goal of the season, while Jonathan Bond registered seven saves in the shutout. Greg Vanney Earns 100th MLS Regular-Season Win With the Galaxy's win over Houston, LA Galaxy Head Coach Greg Vanney became the 12th manager in MLS history to win 100 regular-season matches. Dating back to the beginning of the 2015 MLS regular season, Vanney ranks first amongst all MLS head coaches in wins (98). Sporting KC's Peter Vermes ranks second (94), while Philadelphia's Jim Curtain ranks third (89). Orlando's Oscar Pareja (85) ranks fourth, while Seattle's Brian Schmetzer (84) rounds out the top five.

But is all right with the Galaxy now that they've figured out what three points feel like again? And why could this be a tricky week for the club and Greg Vanney! On today's show, hosts Josh Guesman and Kevin Baxter (is Kevin in New York City? Or is he somewhere else using a green screen? We'll never really know the answer!) discuss the Galaxy's win over Portland and why it's not all positives for the club. Plus, the guys want to discuss Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez's performance since returning from injury. Is he quietly having one of the best performances in MLS? And is that good enough for what the Galaxy need him to be doing on the field? And with the defensive issues the Galaxy have had over this season, did you think that this was their best defensive performance? What was different from the entire team on the defensive side of things? Finally, Josh and Kevin will spend a lot of time looking at the Western Conference standings and why the next two games could make or break the Galaxy's playoff chances. With just three spots for five teams, who is most likely to make a late push for a spot? And why is that team the Vancouver Whitecaps? And if you're the Houston Dynamo, are you playing for pride on Wednesday night? Or do you fold up the tent and go home? After all, the Dynamo had their biggest win of the season on Saturday and still got eliminated from the playoffs! We've got a packed show that's getting you ready for a big game on Wednesday night. How many points do the Galaxy get from a Dynamo side that doesn't like to lose games at home?

But the Saturday night match is a big test for a team that hasn't won a big game this year. Could it be a make-or-break game for a Galaxy side looking for any momentum it can turn into points with just six games remaining? On today's show, hosts Josh Guesman and Eric Vieira want to get you ready for this weekend's big game while also trying to put into perspective the rest of the season. And all of that will happen while the Dodgers battle the Giants in an NLDS deciding game -- the guys even stall at the end to make sure we can wrap it up. They didn't want to leave any loose threads. The guys will start by talking about the likelihood that Dennis te Kloese will be leaving at the end of the season and why that puts a lot of focus on the remaining front office staff. Can Greg Vanney carry the momentum of the club through to the 2022 season? And why are we even talking about 2022 when the Galaxy still have games to play in 2021? The guys will wrap the international call-ups and tell you why some red flags surround Sebastian Lletget and Jonathan dos Santos country appearances. Plus, Josh and Eric will tell you who will be available for selection on Saturday -- that includes injury updates as well. Then there's some Hall of Fame talk around Robbie Keane and a brief look at Julian Araujo and Efrain Alvarez's inclusion in the "22 Under 22" list that MLS hypes every season. Do Josh and Eric agree with the rankings? Where would they put the Galaxy's two young standouts? Finally, there's an in-depth look at the game this weekend with quotes from Greg Vanney about how the Galaxy can succeed against a red-hot Portland side that is coming into LA with all their confidence. It's a Saturday night game that doesn't get much bigger. Can the Galaxy find a way to break their winless streak? As always, thanks for listening to us! We're glad we could get you ready for the Galaxy's last six games of the regular season.
