PODCAST: Pupusas, New York City, and a fresh start for the LA Galaxy

It all starts on Sunday! Another LA Galaxy season is upon us and all the questions you have about the team will start to get answers when they play New York City FC.

COG STUDIOS, Calif. — This is it! The 2022 season starts on Sunday! The LA Galaxy are planning on a full-capacity crowd (one of the first since the pandemic began in 2020), and the club will do everything it can to make New York City FC’s first regular-season game since winning MLS Cup an uncomfortable affair. 

Your hosts for today’s show, Josh Guesman and Eric Vieira, want to get you ready for everything you can experience before the game, at the stadium, and during the game. 

Josh and Eric will start by updating you on a former LA Galaxy II player, Jorge Hernandez, who was playing his football in Ukraine. And how he’s on his way back to the United States. 

The guys will also make sure you’re prepared for Soccerfest. Will you be getting a quasar haircut? Or maybe you’re interested in schooling an eMLS player at FIFA? Or perhaps you’re interested in pushing Josh out of line for pupusas?

The guys will also get you through the busy league schedule for the weekend and tell you which game you should be watching on Saturday! 

But there’s also some coverage of the Galaxy’s in-person media availability and why Greg Vanney doesn’t really want to create some confusion at right back. And will Douglas Costa start? The guys have an argument for that situation, and Josh will try and convince you as to why the formation won’t really matter. 

Finally, Eric and Josh will get you ready for New York City FC’s invasion of Dignity Health Sports Park. And tell you why FiveThirtyEight doesn’t think the Galaxy really stand a chance against the defending MLS champions. 

Are you ready for 34 games of excitement? Are the Galaxy a better team than last year? Where will they finish?

The good news is that they’ll start answering all those questions on Sunday.
