Podcast: A busy LA Galaxy transfer window without much accomplished. But that’s okay!

On today’s show, your hosts will talk about why the LA Galaxy had a busy day during the Transfer Deadline, and they’ll get you ready for Minnesota United on Saturday.

CoG Studios, CA — The LA Galaxy tried to improve the team during the transfer window on Wednesday. But they didn’t get the deal they wanted. And that means the Galaxy are going the distance with this roster in 2018. Is that okay? Or did they blow a golden opportunity?

On today’s show, your hosts Josh Guesman and Eric Vieira are back to discuss exactly what happened during the transfer window, whose names may have been involved and ultimately why the decision to not make any “big deals” was the right one. Or maybe it was the exact wrong one.

Why did the Galaxy only get $175K in 2019 allocation money for the top spot in the allocation order? The guys will discuss what leverage the club had an why the deal ultimately still helps the Galaxy close a deal in the offseason. They’ll also discuss the Galaxy’s Salary Cap Space room, why cutting someone wouldn’t open up the room the Galaxy needed and why the club couldn’t simply block Portland from making the deal they eventually made.

With an eye to the offseason, Josh and Eric will also look at contracts that aren’t likely to be renewed. That could open up a significant chunk of change in the offseason meaning the Galaxy have a realistic chance and doing something special in 2019.

Is making the playoffs in 2018 a good step forward for the team that finished last in the league last year? And what goal is targeted by the front office, players, and fans for 2019?

Finally, the guys get you ready for the Minnesota United and Darwin Quintero. The Loons invade StubHub Center this weekend and it seems like the perfect game for the Galaxy to disappoint everyone in.

60 minutes of Galaxy-talk is on the way!
