Podcast: Galaxy looking for nine points while adding pieces for the second half of the season.

The LA Galaxy close-out a busy transfer window with a backup striker. But is there more? Plus, let’s get ready for Vancouver!

COG STUDIOS, Calif. — The LA Galaxy seem to be closing out the Summer Transfer Window with a bang. You already know about 21-year-old striker Dejan Joveljić, but could the club be closing in on one more last-minute deal? We’ll tell you what we know!

On today’s show, hosts Josh Guesman and Sophie Nicolaou discuss the “professional win” over Real Salt Lake on Wednesday night and why it was something the Galaxy needed to learn. Sure, they did just enough to win, but that’s precisely the kind of effort it takes midweek in Major League Soccer. 

Josh and Sophie want to discuss players like Efrain Alvarez, Samuel Grandsir, Sacha Kljestan, Jonathan Bond, and Kevin Cabral. Are the Galaxy getting some extra mileage from the younger players while the veterans keep everything pointed in the right direction?

Plus, Josh wants to talk about the official signing of Dejan Joveljić and why he’s probably not the final addition to the roster before this transfer window slams closed. Are the Galaxy getting better even while they wait to return to full strength?

Josh and Sophie will cover a lot of ground. They’ll talk about the locker room philosophies guiding the club and tell you why you never try to force yourself on Ted Lasso. OKLAHOMA! But also, this show will talk about a Galaxy team that is just two points out of the top spot in the conference and is just waiting to find full-form with players that have never played together before. 

We’ve got a jam-packed show that you’re not going to want to miss. So thanks for joining us!
