Podcast: When does the preseason matter for the Galaxy? And Lletget under investigation

The LA Galaxy look to have made some progress coming out of the preseason, but will it show against Miami? And will Sebastian Lletget get suspended for the opener?

COG STUDIOS, Calif. — From here on out, all the game count. And while the LA Galaxy are out of time, the trip to Miami might be precisely what they’re looking for. 

On today’s show, hosts Josh Guesman and Kevin Baxter are getting you ready for Week 1 of the MLS season for the Galaxy. It’s going to be a busy week, and right now, there’s some uncertainty on who will be available for the game this weekend. 

Josh and Kevin will start by taking the most profound look at the team this preseason. And Galaxy head coach Greg Vanney gave us plenty to ponder. What has this preseason done to advance the Galaxy? And what can we take from the final game in the Sun Cup Tournament? 

The guys will also talk about the preseason debuts for Oneil Fisher and Samuel Grandsir and why they’re both significant additions to the roster. Could we see either of them against Miami?

Josh and Kevin will also do their best to get you caught up to speed on Sebastian Lletget’s social media mess-up and why that could mean he doesn’t make the trip to Florida. But really, MLS should stop and take a breath to understand there’s nothing they can do to make this better. Should Lletget be able to play this weekend?

And then there’s the question of Inter Miami and whether or not they’ll be ready for a match against the Galaxy. With no preseason games, some covid issues, and a roster that probably won’t be compliant until right before the deadline, the Galaxy might be the team with better form on the day. But will that translate into a stolen victory? Or will it mean the Galaxy aren’t getting that US Open Cup bid? 

That’s right, Panda. I want my $100!

We’ve got a packed show for you on a Monday night. Happy game week, everyone!
