Podcast: New playoff format, Zlatan is staying, and the Galaxy keep Feltscher

On today’s show, your hosts talk about the Galaxy having success in keeping Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Rolf Feltscher, but failing to land a head coach.

COG STUDIOS, Calif. — The weekend may have been quiet, but when Zlatan Ibrahimovic pushes out his latest tease of being back with the LA Galaxy for the 2019 season things heat up pretty quickly!

Your hosts, Josh Guesman, and Kevin Baxter will drop some, what seems like, staggering contract numbers about the tall Swede and why the Galaxy are allowed to have four Designated Players — for now!

The guys will also go back over the failure of the Galaxy to land Caleb Porter and why, regardless of what you think of him, it shows the club not in a great light. Are the Galaxy now below the Columbus Crew in terms of desirability? 

Josh and Kevin will also get into some arguments over MLS’ new playoff format and tell you which defender has re-signed with the Galaxy and why he chose to return. It’s more than just soccer and that’s interesting for a lower-level MLS player to say. 

Finally, the guys go over the latest Galaxy rumors and get you updated on the latest offseason draft that is rapidly approaching. Can the Galaxy get a head coach before the end of the week? Or are fans destined to spend their holiday season without knowing who will head the team for the 2019 season?

And don’t forget to check out our Thursday show from last week where co-host Eric Vieira joined Josh to really break down the news about Porter going elsewhere!
