COG SCARVES: https://corner-of-the-galaxy.myshopify.com/collections/frontpage/products/2018-corner-of-the-galaxy-scarf COG STUDIOS, Calif. -- The LA Galaxy got killed in Seattle. The Sounders outplayed, outhustled, and outworked the Galaxy at almost every turn. And the defense, even when Sigi Schmid staked seven defensive players in the box, couldn't overcome easy turnovers, poor decision-making, and a general lack of competitiveness to get anything approaching a result in the Pacific Northwest. On today's show, your hosts Josh Guesman and Kevin Baxter, look back at the very bad loss and take a look at the mistakes that were made in creating a team that has the League's highest paid defense, and absolutely no flexibility to make the team better. In fact, when you look around the league, all you see is teams getting better in the Summer Transfer Window. The Galaxy couldn't make a move. And you're seeing the ramifications of that. Josh and Kevin will also talk about the amount of money that didn't make the trip to Seattle as well. Was missing five starters -- with four of those starters being the highest paid players on the team -- a recipe for disaster? And the guys will definitely get into the discussion about if the Galaxy rely on Zlatan Ibrahimovic too much. It's a topic that is approached constantly, but one that continues to have arguments surrounding its conclusion. Plus, the guys tell you where João Pedro is headed on loan and why the Galaxy seem to be splitting hairs in announcing the probable failure of that recruitment. Are the Galaxy trying to have their cake and eat it too? Finally, the guys talk about the potential for repeat disaster this Friday and why it all hinges on the injuries that have plagued the club. It's a packed show with a bunch of great information and we're glad you could join us! Music Provided by Back Pocket Memory
