From the Box: LA Galaxy Defense – Which Players Get the Start?

The LA Galaxy are deep on the defensive side of the ball. And with many players coming back off the injury list, we wanted to know who’s in starting backline?

On today’s show, your hosts Josh Guesman and LA Galaxy Insider, Adam Serrano are joined by Four Four Two‘s Scott French (@ScottJFrench) to discuss the LA Galaxy’s defense. It’s an important conversation to understand what this team will have to deal with when and if all their injured players get healthy.

Who’s your starting backline? Who do you bench? The guys will discuss AJ DeLaGaraza, Daniel Steres, Robbie Rogers, Jelle Van Damme, Ashley Cole and others as they try and figure out who ends up being left out.

Bruce Arena has tough decisions to make and that could include benching a player like AJ DeLaGarza. Is AJ’s best position in the center of the backline? Or is it out on the right? And if DeLaGarza is playing at right back then where does Robbie Rogers play? Do you bench Daniel Steres if AJ plays at center back? And who plays better in the right back position? Is it AJ or Rogers? ┬áThere are endless combinations but who gets the start and who gets the bench is up to you!

Along the way your hosts will talk about how squad rotation may start to answer some of these questions. After all, this team is filled with players over the age of 30. And maybe you could find a way to move Rogers into midfield?

We want to know what you’ve decided. Hit us up on twitter and lets us know who gets the bench for you starting backline.
