PODCAST: Galaxy host New England on Saturday and then Douglas Costa on Sunday?

The LA Galaxy look like they’re landing Brazilian Douglas Costa. Can he find form in Los Angeles? Can he be the most talented player?

COG STUDIOS, Calif. — The LA Galaxy will welcome Bruce Arena back to Dignity Health Sports Park on Saturday, and he’ll bring with him the New England Revolution and several former Galaxy players. Will the Galaxy be able to match up to one of the best teams in MLS last season? 

On today’s show, hosts Josh Guesman and Sophie Nicolaou want to get you caught up on a busy Thursday. They’ve got a surprise preseason game to update you on, they’ll talk about the Douglas Costa rumors that should cross the line on Monday, and they’ll get you ready for what should be an electrifying season from Julian Araujo. 

First, Josh and Sophie talk about how the preseason doesn’t matter. Then Josh will tell you how he’s keeping track of goal scorers in the preseason to counter that whole “it doesn’t matter” thing. 

But the majority of this show revolves around the reporting of Fabrizio Romano and how the Galaxy are going to sign Costa for 1.5 years with a six-month loan to start things off. What can we learn about Costa from a question Greg Vanney didn’t want to answer? And can the most talented player on the field make it big in Los Angeles?

Sophie and Josh will also tell you about the first significant injury of the preseason, and you’ll hear from Vanney on Costa, Cristian Pavon, Mark Delgado, and a lot more. 

Plus, what did Vanney think of Araujo’s World Cup Qualifying debut? And why is that good for the Galaxy?

We’ve got a packed show for you on a Thursday night that will definitely get you ready for a Saturday night game! 

Let’s get this thing started!
