Both Douglas Costa and Cristian Pavón could end up being the best or the worst signings for the LA Galaxy.
COG STUDIOS, Calif. — Rumors are buzzing, and the LA Galaxy seem to be involved in at least two of them. So when are Douglas Costa and Cristian Pavon headed to Los Angeles? Let’s press pause on that duo… at least for a bit longer.
On today’s show, hosts Josh Guesman and Kevin Baxter want to get you all the latest Galaxy news. And surprisingly, there’s a lot to digest.
Josh and Kevin will start by updating you on the Galaxy’s preseason roster and why there’s one very interesting name. Who is trailing with the club? And what does a lack of international spots mean for some players?
And the whole reason the Galaxy released their roster was that they played a closed-door preseason game on Saturday and came away victorious. Did Greg Vanney end up playing some defense? And why does the preseason never matter until it does?
But the guys who did get on the scoreboard for the Galaxy certainly are worth paying attention to this Saturday when the Galaxy play their first preseason game that is open to the public.
However, the bulk of the show will be focused on the probable signing of Douglas Costa (he seems to be coming) and the possible reacquisition of Cristian Pavon. Come February, could we see two game-changers playing together at Dignity Health Sports Park? Would the Galaxy have to wait until the summertime?
Plus, the guys will go over each deal and tell you why some risky business decisions are being made. Can the Galaxy get the most out of Costa? There’s no denying there’s talent there, but will he be able to regain form he had when he played for the likes of Juventus and Bayern?
