On today’s show your hosts Josh Guesman and LA Galaxy Insider, Adam Serrano are joined by ESPNFC.com’s Jeff Carlisle to discuss the matchup with New York City FC. This is the first ever meeting between the West coast and East Coast flagship teams. And while both teams have stacked their rosters full of high priced talent there are some significant differences between them.
With Jeff Carlisle’s vast knowledge of Major League Soccer, the guys discuss the ramifications of the Designated Player and what that means for the each of these teams’ identities.
Is this the most hyped regular season game in LA Galaxy and history? What will this mean for both teams if they turn this game into an instant classic? And what will people remember after seeing Robbie Keane, Steven Gerrard, Giovani Dos Santos face off against Pirlo, David Villa and Frank Lampard. These lineups compromise the most accomplished players ever to set foot against each other in Major League Soccer.
We discuss it all as we look to dissect what could be a huge game in Major League Soccer’s legacy. It’s the first meeting between a Super Club and a Super Club in it’s early beginnings.
