PODCAST: Galaxy ‘starters’ aren’t starters and is Kevin Cabral coming to LA?

The LA Galaxy are running out of time to get starters starting preseason games, and rumors around Cabral have him coming to Los Angeles!

COG STUDIOS, Calif. — The LA Galaxy are continuing their preseason with starters that you’re likely to see in their first match of the season against Inter Miami. So, how many “starters” should you expect to see, and how many players will the Galaxy get ready for the season-opener?

On today’s show, hosts Josh Guesman and Kevin Baxter want to give you the latest in Galaxy news and get you prepped for the Galaxy’s final busy week before the 2021 season kicks off.

The guys will start with the loss to Sporting KC in this weekend’s preseason game. Why are fans and reporters beginning to get frustrated? It shouldn’t be the losses. Those don’t matter right now. But the lack of available starters is starting to be a massive problem to Greg Vanney and the club, and it likely means guys you aren’t expecting to start in Miami will be starting in Miami. We’ll go over what we learned and why the team that starts in Florida will probably look different than the team that plays the rest of the season. 

Plus, if you want rumors, we’re going to explain the U-22 initiative once again and why the Galaxy will probably be using that to sign Kevin Cabral. Is it 100-percent done? You’ll have to listen to find out! And why does this mean the Galaxy are still shopping for a DP? Again, it’s all explained!

And with IFAB and US Soccer getting in on the action, Major League Soccer will use concussion subs in 2021. It’s a simple rule that has some wacky possibilities. Could you see a team using nine subs in a game? We’ll tell you how that could happen — even if it’s not very likely. Do you like the rule? Will teams use it or abuse it?

We’ve got a packed show covering all the major news surrounding the Galaxy as they get ready for an essential season under Vanney. Is this year one of his three-year plans? He doesn’t think so!
