PODCAST: A Flying Douglas Costa, and a Galaxy preseason game that we refuse to get excited about!

Douglas Costa is on his way to Los Angeles. Josh is tracking his flight to the United States while talking about a successful preseason win over New England

COG STUDIOS, Calif. — Are we tracking Douglas Costa’s flight from Brazil to the United States? Of course, we are! It’s what we do! 

On today’s show, hosts Josh Guesman and, filling in for Kevin Baxter, who was in Ontario at the Fury game (but still calls in), is Christian Miles. 

Josh and Christian start by talking about the gamble the Galaxy are making with Costa and why we’re all naturally wired to suggest this wasn’t the most innovative way to spend $5-million (reportedly). 

But Josh will put on his aviation hat and tell you why a single picture of Costa can tell you the type of plane he’s flying and where his plane is going. Also, what time you could expect him to land in Los Angeles. 

Then the guys dive into the preseason scrimmage that saw the Galaxy score four times and outplay the defending Supporters Shield winners. Was Bruce Arena having his New England Revolution play poorly on purpose? And why should you get excited about Kevin Cabral but still be worried about the Galaxy’s defense?

Christian and Josh will dive into the prospects of Jalen Neal, Dejan Joveljic, and Mark Delgado and tell you why the club is ready to see some of their younger players playing a more prominent role. 

Plus, with the injuries to Derrick Williams and Jorge Villafaña, will Raheem Edwards and Julian Araujo usher in some tactical flexibility? And could Kelvin Leerdam become a back three center back?

We’ve got a great show that will even close the book on Cristian Pavon and tell you why the Galaxy haven’t made an offer for a very long time. So why were they in Brazil earlier this year? We’ll talk about it all!

Thanks for joining us on a busy Monday show!
