Podcast: Sweep the Leg, no mercy, go for the jugular. The Galaxy await El Tráfico

Julian Araujo is undecided, Sebastian Lletget is an All-Star, and Greg Vanney turns into his evil twin. Plus the LA Galaxy travel to LAFC on Saturday!

COG STUDIOS, Calif. — The LA Galaxy get a chance to redeem themselves when they take on LAFC this Saturday at Banc of California Stadium. After a “pedestrian” performance against San Jose, can the Galaxy put their rivals on the ropes in their own stadium?

On today’s show, hosts Josh Guesman and Eric Vieira want to get you ready for a critical game against LAFC, but they also want to get you updated on a lot of Galaxy news and the All-Star Game festivities. 

The guys will start with a quick recap of what made the All-Star Game fun and what needed to be improved. And because the Galaxy had two players in the game, they’ll also talk about how Julian Araujo and Sebastian Lletget did in the second half of MLS’s win over Liga MX. Do the viewership numbers tell the story? And why did a bad field steal some of the thunder from an otherwise very entertaining game?

Josh and Eric will also discuss the National Team call-ups the Galaxy might have to endure and tell you why Julian Araujo is still in limbo when it comes to his international future. What’s best for the Galaxy and Araujo?

And you all know it wouldn’t be a podcast if Josh didn’t break out some charts and talk to you about the Galaxy’s upcoming schedule. How difficult is the closing road for the club? And why should you be optimistic about where the numbers say the Galaxy should finish?

Finally, there’s a good look at two struggling rivals that will let it all be decided on Saturday. Will this El Trafico be different than others? And what do two dads have to say about traveling to hostile territory? 

We’ve got a great show for you today, and we’re glad that you trusted us to get you ready for a big one! Thanks for watching and listening!
