On today’s show, your host will be joined by LA Galaxy II Head Coach Mike Muñoz and ESPN and Fox Sports Broadcaster Dave Denholm as the LA Galaxy get ready to host FC Dallas in the 2017 Season Opener.
CoG Studios, CA – The LA Galaxy have only hours remaining on the 2017 preseason as they get ready to host Supporters’ Shield and U.S. Open Cup Champions FC Dallas on Saturday at StubHub Center. And this show will do a lot to get you ready for that game and what you can expect from a starting lineup.
But first, your host Josh Guesman fills you in all the Galaxy news that you may have missed. Including three new signings from LA Galaxy II and what that means for the senior team. You shouldn’t be surprised by these moves, after all, we told you to expect the depth of this roster to be filled by “Los Dos.”
And Speaking of the second team, we’re going to be joined by LA Galaxy II Head Coach Mike Muñoz. Mike was just promoted from the academy to taking the job in USL and the Galaxy couldn’t have picked a better guy. Mike will update you on how they’ll be filling out their roster, how important the Galaxy Academy is, and what style and philosophy they plan on playing.
We’ll also talk to Mike about his team’s plan to hold tryouts in London and Manchester over the summer. What does he hope to get out of that? And why does he think the Galaxy can be successful looking for future players in one of soccer’s birth places.
Then, Josh will be joined by Fox Sports and ESPN Radio Broadcaster, Dave Denholm. He’s also the guy who started the original Galaxy podcast, and he’s been a guest Co-Host so many times it’s hard to count. But Josh and Dave will regale you with their first meeting, face-to-face, and what it was like to share lunch with Jelle Van Damme at the Galaxy’s Media Luncheon.
There’s some great insight into why Jelle Van Damme is the right guy to be Captain of the Galaxy and why he’s the right guy to have in a Galaxy kit. They guys will also talk about Dave’s thoughts on the team going into a very difficult matchup with FC Dallas.
Finally, Josh gets you ready with a predicted starting lineup for the game against Dallas. And reminds you to GET TO THE GAME EARLY — you’ve been warned. This is a matchup that pits the Galaxy up against one of the toughest teams in MLS. And it’s a game that the Galaxy will be lucky to keep close.
FC Dallas is coming off a CCL victory with a ton of momentum and it will be up to a weakened Galaxy team to try and slow them down. Are you ready for LA’s first kick?
