Podcast: Zlatan’s LA Galaxy Arrival, A Gritty Draw, and the first Massive Game of 2018!

On today’s show, your hosts will get deep into the details of how the LA Galaxy finally landed Zlatan Ibrahimović. Who gets the credit and when could we be expecting the big man?

CoG Studios, CA — The LA Galaxy are back in Los Angeles after a 0-0 draw against the Vancouver Whitecaps on Saturday night in Vancouver. With a smart formation and some solid defense, the road point gives them a huge amount of momentum going into a big Saturday match with LAFC.

On today’s show, your hosts Josh Guesman and LA Times soccer reporter Kevin Baxter, are here to give you nearly 90-minutes of Galaxy talk. And they’ll give you their unique perspective on all the Galaxy news that’s happened in the last week – and it’s a lot!

First, the guys will stick with their analysis of the Galaxy’s draw with the Whitecaps. There were a lot of defenders and no offense. But the formation was new, and Galaxy head coach Sigi Schmid gave fans and other teams a lot to think about when it comes to the options available to this club.

Tomas Hilliard-Arce made his MLS and Galaxy debut, and Jorgen Skjelvik and Daniel Steres were excellent in their 90-minute performance. Could Schmid be ready to go with three center backs in future games? We discuss!

Next, the guys give you all the behind the scenes info on how the Galaxy landed Zlatan Ibrahimović and why the three-year chase finally ended. Plus, we’ll ask the hard-hitting questions like “where do you find a Lion in Manchester?” And with the Galaxy’s marketing arm in full swing, we’ll discuss the Zlatan ad in the LA Times and give you some idea on when the Galaxy, and their fans, should be expecting the 6-foot-5 striker. Could he possibly be ready for LAFC game on Saturday?

Finally, Josh and Kevin will preview the MASSIVE game against LAFC at StubHub Center on March 31 (Saturday, 12 p.m., FOX). Are LAFC for real with their 2-0 start? Or did they just get a little lucky against one good team and one team that looked more like traffic cones?

We’ll discuss differing lineups with Zlatan in them and also answer all your questions and calls!

It’s a packed show and we’re glad we could be a part of your day!
