On today’s show, your hosts walk you through the first days of Sigi Schmid’s return to the LA Galaxy and look at a difficult situation in dealing with some international players.
CoG Studios, CA – The LA Galaxy shook everything up last week when they fired Curt Onalfo, immediately hired Sigi Schmid, and signed Designated Player Jonathan dos Santos. And now that Schmid has made it through his first game, it’s time that our hosts fill you in on all the happenings over the past couple of days and that may include some bombshells.
Hosts Josh Guesman and LA Times Soccer Writer Kevin Baxter are ready to bring you all the Galaxy news you can handle.
They’ll start with Kevin’s reaction and retelling of the events that lead up to the ouster of Onalfo and how he saw the hiring of Schmid. Plus you’ll hear about what some of the players had to say when they found out about the coaching change.
Josh and Kevin will also get into some of the details surrounding the signing of Jonathan dos Santos. They’ll talk about the Galaxy’s expectations and why, in many circles, it sounds like the club got a great deal for the box-to-box midfielder.
It’s also important to go back over some things we learned from the Galaxy’s draw with Seattle. Are most people making too much of a game that didn’t see a goal scored because they’re used to it being so bad at StubHub Center?
Finally, your hosts will talk about the possible departures of Jelle Van Damme and Ashley Cole. Is there any substance behind either of the rumors? Should the Galaxy actually consider a move for one or both of the players? We’ll give you our expert perspective on the choices facing the club and give you inside information regarding the possibility of the movement of those players.
It’s a packed show full of all that Galaxy talk you can’t get enough of. We’re glad you could join us!
