Podcast: Romain Alessandrini Arrives, While Lletget and Jones Impress in San Diego

On today’s show, your hosts walk you through the arrival of French midfielder Romain Alessandrini and talk about Jones and Lletget’s impressive play for USMNT.

CoG Studios, CA – Your hosts Josh Guesman and, newly announced co-host, Kevin Baxter, are ready to get the ball rolling on the 2017 season, and they start by talking about a French midfielder who is in Los Angeles to make his deal, with the LA Galaxy, official. Romain Alessandrini has been long rumored as a target for the Galaxy, and everything looks to be in place for the deal to finally be set in ink.

But what does Alessandrini bring to the Galaxy? And what will that mean for the starting lineup and the younger players that will behind him? Is he an injury prone gamble that the Galaxy might regret? Is this the depth LA was looking for?

Then Josh and Kevin take a look at the play of Sebastian Lletget and Jermaine Jones as both players took turns in the midfield for the US Men’s National Team (USMNT) last Sunday in San Diego. Did either play hurt their stock for the National Team? And are there plenty of upsides to be had from this game?

We’ll talk about what other USMNT players had to say about both Lletget and Jones and what trouble that could mean for the LA Galaxy. It’s not all good news.

It’s a great show as we count down the days until this young team takes the field in their first preseason game. Are you going? GREAT! We’ll see you there!
