Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez makes LA Galaxy WORSE - Herculez Gomez | ESPN FC

  • Published on Oct 30, 2020
  • The LA Galaxy are sitting bottom of Major League Soccer’s Western Conference (5-3-11) and have just parted ways with Guillermo Barros Schelotto. Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez only has a single goal to his name. Is there any way to turn to keep this sinking ship afloat? ESPN FC’s Herculez Gomez joins the show to recap just what has been going wrong with the Galaxy over recent seasons and why the LA Galaxy’s “air of arrogance” has pretty much disappeared. With their las MLS Cup in 2014, how are the club going to turn things around? Gomez says the club have signed Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Giovani dos Santos, Jonathan dos Santos, Steven Gerrard and now Chicharito - but there’s no silverware to show for it. Schelotto should’ve been “a home run” for the Galaxy, and Gomez outlines the reasons why the Argentine’s struggles in Major League Soccer weren’t solely his fault. So who will take over the club next: Javier Aguirre, Landon Donovan or even Robbie Keane?

    Chicharito career has been over, when he was at West Ham United! We as a fan we are Hurt, when we see our defense getting destroyed on every games and it been for years!

    The difference with Aguirre and Chicharito is that Aguirre is a very good coach, and Chicharito is not that good of a player.

    2nd 36 points, 1st 35 points. 9th 24 points, 8th 19points.

      They combined the MLS is back tournament with the regular season. There are also teamx that were affected by covid, and teams have been playing fewer teams. This is not regular. It's still win 3 poins, tie 1 point, and loss 0 points.

    Wasn't Hercules Gomez previously hyping up the Chicharito signing? I believe he was excited early on and proclaiming that he would dominate in this league. He was arguing this with some people and many non Mexican (El Tri) supporters were warning of how poor Chicharito's performance has been for years now including myself. It was definitely a signing to try and boost shirt sales and popularity amongst casual Mexican football fans but they were living in fantasy land expecting him to be any good much less dominate in this league. However, the reason the Galaxy play poorly doesn't fall just on his shoulders. He was never going to replace Zlatan. No one can replace Zlatan but Zlatan. Zlatan is still dominating in Serie A with AC Milan. That dude is a legend and playing great at his 39 years of age. The Galaxy's bigger problems are on the defensive side of the ball. They just can't defend at all. It is one of the worst defenses I have seen from the Galaxy in all my years of being a fan. If they had a good defense even with Chicharito struggling, they would not be last in the Western Conference. More people would be complaining about Chicharito and not about replacing the coach. Kind of similar to when we had Giovani Dos Santos here (after his injuries, because he was good prior to injuries). They need to replace that defensive line and improve the midfield as well which is more important than having the best striker possible. Fix those issues first then worry about finding a goal scorer to win titles with.

      CHESPERRITO HERNANDEZ SCAM WAS DISCOVER LIKE 2013,,, WHEN MEXICAN NATIONA TEAM BOSSES TOLD THE MEXICAN PLAYERS TO PASS THE BALLL TO CHESPERRITO HERNANDEZ WHO DOES NOTHING BARELY RUN CANT EVEN PASS AND WITH HELP OF MEXICAN REFEREEES DID NOT CALL HIM OFFSIDE OH HIS GOLS.. AND IF MEXICAN PLAYERS REFUSE THEY WER CUT OR RELEASE FROM NATIONAL TEAM THAT;S WHY CARLOS VELA LEFT IN 2013,,,

    Couldn’t listen to the bias of this reporter any longer, joke reporting blaming Chicharito, he’s played at the highest level won League titles at Man Utd 🇾🇪🇾🇪which would NOT be in the same trophy cabinet as to what is on offer in MLS, you should appreciate him being in the MLS! He plays with his heart! Embarrassing joke of a video this is on ESPN! Clearly ESPN using Chicha’s profile to get hits on their channel! Shambles! 👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻

    • jimmyhowett7
      jimmyhowett7 2 days ago

      @Den-Den Mushi scoring goals is important, but getting the service is the main issue. Zlatan got the service and scored, Chicha doesn’t get the service to finish a chance, can’t score if you don’t get the ball to strikers! 🤐 Hopefully he leaves the MLS, and goes to a better standard league, he’s still quality and I’d have him back at United! 🇾🇪

      @jimmyhowett7 and u think score goals is not important for football?. Learn more kid, zlatan scored 2 galaxy conceided 3, he did what he said,unfortunately the team didnt. MLS fans should be glad zlatan
      wasting his time there.

    • jimmyhowett7

      Douglas Harley I wonder if those payaya people were pleased with seeing your white ancestor settlers come here. They didn’t come here legally. No one is illegal on stolen land. And most of today’s “illegal immigrants” do the jobs lazy Americans like you don’t want to

      Douglas Harley 25 days ago

      @Tuff G. lol, you sound like someone trying their hardest to justify something, but lacking the requisite education. does "san antonio" sound like the language used by the payaya indians to you?...because that's who was _originally_ there before the spanish conquistadors. nevertheless, my ancestors came here LEGALLY in the 1700s. there didn't used to be countries with established legal system, but no there are, and people who are here but haven't immigrated legally SHOULDN'T BE HERE, and are taking jobs and resources that should be filled by citizens.
