LA Galaxy

Podcast: A broken foot, an injured ankle, an MLS start date, and Galaxy rumors that won’t go away

Could the LA Galaxy benefit from a fake Cristian Pavon injury while MLS tries to apply pressure to the MLSPA by announcing a league start date?

COG STUDIOS, Calif. — There are some LA Galaxy rumors that just won’t go away. So do we give them more credit when they have staying power? Not really! 

On today’s show, hosts Josh Guesman and Kevin Baxter will dive into the latest in Galaxy news and tell you why some things are worth paying attention to — injured ankles, contracts, and MLS start dates — and some things you should just dismiss!

Josh and Kevin will start with some interesting new information surrounding the contract of Jonathan Bond and how the 27-year-old should be on his way to the states this week and is coming to be the Galaxy’s number one goalkeeper. 

The guys will transition into updates surrounding Sebastian Lletget and Julian Araujo and dive into the MLS announcement that the season will start in April. But is MLS forcing this on the MLSPA? And is a work stoppage going to force everyone to hit pause on an already delayed season? Plus, what exactly does a 34-game season mean? Will teams be able to escape their regional bubbles?

Plus, what’s happening with Cristian Pavon and his negotiation to get out of Boca Juniors? And why could surgery be a sign that Pavon is pulling out all the stops? Or did the Galaxy miss some signs his ankle was messed up?

Finally, the guys preach patience on the Sebastian Giovinco rumor, and take a look at Marcos Rojo and his linkage with the Galaxy after Manchester United is ready to let him go. 

Oh, and don’t miss some insight into the new Galaxy draft pick, Josh Drack. Maybe college was a way for him to mature? And now that he’s ready could the Galaxy use him on the senior team?

We’ve got a packed show that we can’t wait to share with you. Thanks for hanging in there with us!
