On today’s show, your host is joined by LA Galaxy Legend, AJ DeLaGarza as he takes fan phone calls and talks about his surprise trade to the Houston Dynamo.
CoG Studios, CA – The LA Galaxy shocked everyone, including our guest, when they traded AJ DeLaGarza to the Houston Dynamo. In return, the Galaxy got some General Allocation Money and some Targeted Allocation Money. But what they lost was the heart and soul of a team. How that gets replaced is anyone’s guess, but we’re fortunate enough to be joined by AJ DeLaGarza on Corner of the Galaxy to thank him for all he’s done for our show and to give the fans a chance to thank him in person.
He will talk about how quickly he received the information from the front office and how that quickly panned out. He will also reveal whether or not he expected to come back in 2017 and he’ll tell you what his feelings were after the 2016 season. This includes whether or not he was convinced he wanted to come back to the Galaxy.
Then we’ll dive into your personal phone calls as you thank AJ for everything he’s meant to you. Because it isn’t just one or two of you. It’s a bunch of heartfelt confessions on what DeLaGarza has meant to you, the fans. And this is the real reason we do this show — to allow you a chance to say goodbye.
On a personal note, CoG and AJ DeLaGarza go way back. The Show started in 2009, the same year that Bruce Arena drafted DeLaGarza. As the show grew in popularity, one of the big bonuses was to get introduced to AJ, and have him as our first “starter” on the show — and we probably have our first LA Galaxy player, Bryan Jordan, to thank for that.
Throughout the years AJ has been a guest on multiple shows. Always generous with his time, always honest with his answers. He became part of the CoG Family, just as AJ, Megan, Luca, and Noelle became a part of everyone’s family.
We have been honored to share AJ’s thoughts and opinions on the team throughout those years and we hope that you enjoy the chance to listen to him before heading off to Houston on Friday.
