PODCAST: Sacha Kljestan, Galaxy Red and Green Cards, and ‘I saw Santa Clause.’

LA Galaxy midfielder Sacha Kljestan joins the show and Josh definitely jinxed the Galaxy in 2015 or 2016. Last show of 2021!

COG STUDIOS, Calif. — This is our last show of 2021, and we’re calling it our Holiday Spectacular for no reason whatsoever. But it would be best if you were warned; Sacha Kljestan joins us, and Josh tells a story about seeing Santa Clause. Also, there might be a Galaxy-themed ‘Twas the Night before Christmas that debuted on this show about six years ago. But who’s counting?

Hosts Josh Guesman and Kevin Baxter update you on Galaxy news and talk about what 2021 looked like from the Galaxy perspective. Also, what are we expecting from Greg Vanney and company now that a lot of what Dennis te Kloese did has been wiped from the front office. 

The guys start with welcoming Sacha Kljestan to the show, where they discuss if he gets tired of being called “old” after every game by the press and why some “moron” once predicted that he’d be coming to the Galaxy in a move that almost got him to the Galaxy. That’s right. We’re taking you back to 2014, people. 

But Sacha will also talk about things that need to change in 2022 and how this team will fill the holes left by Sebastian Lletget and Jonathan dos Santos.

After Sacha leaves, Josh and Kevin will update you on the Galaxy’s pursuit of Cristian Pavon and why they may be stepping back from the very talented midfielder. 

The guys will also talk about the rumor that Carlos Harvey has acquired his Green Card and why that will be a massive benefit to the midfielder as he tries to establish himself as an MLS player. 

Finally, Armenia loves the Galaxy, Santa Clause is Coming to Town, and what would it sound like if the Galaxy wrote ‘Twas the Night before Christmas.” Did Josh really jinx the Galaxy with one poem?

We hope everyone enjoyed our 2021 season of the podcast, and we’ll be back in 2022! See you on January 3rd!
