Podcast: Gold CupDates, U-22 Maneuvers, and a Galaxy road trip

The LA Galaxy lose Chicharito, Coulibaly, gain Steres and Williams while they focus on a 3-game road trip that is manageable.

COG STUDIOS, Calif. — It’s not going to be an easy road trip for the LA Galaxy. But it is certainly one they should be able to handle. That’s even when you take five players off the roster with their participation in the Gold Cup. 

Our goal is to get you ready for the Galaxy’s longest road trip of the season on today’s podcast. It’s a road trip that will see the Galaxy take on two of the worst teams in Major League Soccer but play three games in eight days — with two of those games being played at altitude. 

Hosts Josh Guesman and Eric Vieira are well versed in Galaxy news and all the injury and availability updates you’ll need before turning on the TV this Saturday! 

The guys will start with going over Efrain Alvarez’s contract extension and why the Galaxy will use the U-22 rules to their fullest advantage. But what exactly does that mean for Alvarez and Julian Araujo in salary and salary cap? We’ll explain. 

Josh and Eric will also talk about the All-Star Game as well and why you shouldn’t vote for Galaxy players, but if you do, these are the guys who are probably already going, so you won’t be hurting anything!

Then it’s an update on where Galaxy players stand in their Gold Cup appearances in a segment that will no be called Gold CupDates. Because why not?

And while we throw in a couple of other stats and exciting things you’ll want to know as you watch the games for the rest of the year, Josh and Eric also want you to prepare for the Vancouver Whitecaps and what they are might be presenting on Saturday night. 

Plus, have you bought your tickets for our live event on July 31st? Well, good news! Someone just donated ten tickets. We’ll explain!

We’ve got a packed show, and we’re ready to get you pumped for the rest of July! Thanks for joining us!
