On today’s show, your hosts go all in on Zlatan Ibrahimovic to the LA Galaxy. With many reasons for it not to work, why is this time different? We’ll discuss it all!
COG STUDIOS, CA — The LA Galaxy seem to be on the hunt for Swedish International Zlatan Ibrahimovic again. But is this time different? And what about all the hurdles that seem to be in place to keep this deal from happening?
On today’s show, your hosts Josh Guesman (freshly off the plane from the UK) and Kevin Baxter (quirky as ever) are back to discuss all the news that has happened from the last time they got together on the podcast.
The overall theme of this episode is focused on Zlatan. But there are so many sides to this argument that it’s important that your hosts exercise each one.
Where would Ibrahimovic fit into the Galaxy’s lineup? And why does Josh think there is zero impact to a lineup that has already received a pretty favorable overhaul from last year? Could he come for Targeted Allocation Money? Why would he even be contemplating coming to the Galaxy for almost no money and why should the Galaxy risk signing an injury prone striker like Ibrahimovic to the roster?
The guys will also discuss the Galaxy’s recent hiring of Ezra Hendrickson as an assistant coach and why this signals a return to normalcy for the club. And are there other benefits to having a former player on the coaching staff?
There’s also discussion about Liga MX and MLS seeing their champions play each other. Is this a good idea and why does that idea stop being good almost immediately?
And Finally, what does Rubio Rubin and the allocation order have to do with the Galaxy? Could they land the forward to give themselves some depth? Or is the allocation order more important to hold on to?
We’re glad to be back after a short hiatus, and we’re also glad there is so much Galaxy talk to get your week started with!
