Podcast: LA Galaxy Walk Into a Bar. Pedro, Alessandrini, and Van Damme Enter.

Today’s show will walk you back over all the latest LA Galaxy news and get a fresh perspective on some departures and new signings.

CoG Studios, CA – The LA Galaxy are just days away from their first preseason game and your hosts Josh Guesman and Wendy Thomas want to go back over the most recent news to get a fresh perspective on the signings and on the feelings that may have passed or gotten stronger in the last few days.

First, the dynamic duo talks about what losing AJ DeLaGarza really feels like. With some time to process where do you put this deal in your head? Have you come to terms with it? Did the Galaxy actually get this one right? And can you stand seeing DeLaGarza in Orange? The team will have to live with this one and it will be one of the most important tests to see if this new front office has everything figured out.

Then Josh and Wendy will transition over to the play of Sebastian Lletget and Jermaine Jones in the USMNT game versus Serbia. Impressed with either of those guys? Is criticism necessary to understand who should play where? And where does Lletget really fit into this Galaxy team?

Then it’s on to talk about Romain Alessandrini and João Pedro. The Frenchman and the young Portuguese midfielder have joined the LA Galaxy and all seems okay. But should you be worried about an injury riddled past? Or the fact that a 23-year old midfielder is a guy who’s before his prime and could go bad on the team? It’s a fun discussion and one that is sure to get you thinking about the different roles the LA Galaxy have in their bunker inside StubHub Center.

Simple Question: What does Jovan Kirovski do? We’ll save that for another show.

Finally, your hosts talk about the financial motivation that made Jelle Van Damme a Designated Player and why the Galaxy scored big-time by making all the right moves. Van Damme gets his money, the LA Galaxy get to save some of theirs, it should all work out swimmingly if you ask us. But you didn’t. Instead, you asked some other guy and he stole your watch and your wallet. He’ll steal your dog next. We warned you.
