PODCAST: A Tom Cruise, cruise, a skinny Lletget Trade, and a Galaxy Schedule for 2022!

Did the Galaxy get value for Lletget? Will they get more? And what does the 2022 Schedule have in store for fans?

COG STUDIOS, Calif. — The LA Galaxy were making headlines across Major League Soccer this week, and we want to talk about it. Sebastian Lletget has moved to New England, and Sacha Kljestan will stay in LA, but are you getting a warm and fuzzy feeling from the moves?

Hosts Josh Guesman and Sophie Nicolaou are back to get you updated on some very big moves by a Galaxy side that seems to have a plan in mind as they offload players and gather some money in the process. 

They’ll start with the re-signing of Sacha Kljestan, who seems to be a value-added type of player. So what did the Galaxy get with Kljestan? And can they afford to add another name like Victor Vasquez as well?

But then Josh and Sophie want to get into the Galaxy’s trade with New England for Lletget. Can the Galaxy afford to trust the Revolution and Bruce Arena in this deal? Why are the Galaxy dealing with Arena and Lletget? Did he want to go to New England? And did the Galaxy get the value you expected from the trade? 

Josh will break down the mechanics of how the Galaxy get paid and when they get paid and then tell you what the perception of the deal is in some circles across the league. Will the Galaxy ever get $1.3-million out of the Revolution? And when could they see that money if they did?

Next, our hosts talk about the Dan Steres trade details and why it’s probably more of a wash than we initially thought. Does that make you feel better about offloading the defender to the Houston Dynamo?

Finally, there’s some schedule talk before Sophie tells stories of Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman, and then name drops about ten more celebrities. She’s the most interesting person in the world for a reason. She just stays bottled up!

We’ve got a fun show for you with only one more episode left this year. Are you ready to ring in 2022? Better question: are the Galaxy?
