Podcast: Things the Galaxy didn’t have to do to sign a defender, and French Gio

The Galaxy got center back Derrick Williams across the line, but they’re still missing three starters. Are they running out of time?

COG STUDIOS, Calif. — The LA Galaxy got Derrick Williams across the line, thanks to a little help from Robbie Keane! We’ll discuss what the defender can bring to the club and why Giancarlo Gonzalez might have some issues. 

Hosts Josh Guesman and Larry Morgan get you through the glut of news that seeped from the Galaxy this week and get you clued in on where they might be heading for their next signing. 

Josh will start with his weekly kit update and tell you why an authentic kit should come with all the things the players wear. That includes the sponsor logo and an MLS patch. We’ll let you know what the Galaxy are expected to do to fix the problems they’ve been having with patches and numbers!

Then the guys breakdown the contract length of Derrick Williams and talk about how his signing is starting to indicate a trend for Dennis te Kloese and perhaps how Greg Vanney wants to run things. A team that relied so much on International players in 2019 and 2020 suddenly is doing the exact opposite. 

And did you want to know the Galaxy’s preseason schedule? What if we told you it involved Landon Donovan, Bruce Arena, and a trip to Tucson, Arizona? We’ve got the news details for you that might have you trucking for the southwests deserts. 

But if you want to know who the Galaxy will face when the season opens up, then you’ve got some waiting to do. But that might include fans, so get those community kits ready!


Finally, Josh and Larry discuss the Galaxy’s pursuit of a French winger and why he could check many boxes off for the Galaxy in 2021 and beyond. Is he a diamond in the rough? Or is he just a French Giovani dos Santos?

We’ll discuss!
