PODCAST: Help the Galaxy design a kit and an unpredictable Charlotte match

There’s a really big game on Saturday with a league-record attendance expected. How do the LA Galaxy react to a hostile environment?

COG STUDIOS, Calif. — The LA Galaxy are riding high after a win on Sunday. But they’re flying into one of the most unpredictable situations you could find. They’re about to face 75,000 fans in Charlotte, and there’s just no way to prepare for that. 

On today’s show, hosts Josh Guesman and Eric Vieira discuss the Galaxy news you need to know before Saturday’s MASSIVE match. 

The guys will start by zeroing in on the club’s request for input on the 2024 kit. So they do the only reasonable thing and, along with the chat room, fill out the survey and try to read behind the questions. Are the Galaxy looking at changing the crest? Are the Galaxy looking at changing their primary colors? And why does it seem like some of these questions are traps? Tell the guys where they went wrong!

Next, Josh and Eric will talk about the LA Galaxy II roster and what injuries and suspensions you can expect this weekend. Will Derrick Williams be available on the turf in Charlotte?

And what fun charts can Josh find to tell you that the Galaxy have a chance to do something they’ve only done five times in their history. But will they do it?

Plus, there was a hugely important anonymous survey that The Athletic did while talking to 21 of the league’s 28 “Chief Soccer Officers” about what they think of different teams and people around the league. The Galaxy don’t get mentioned enough… and that’s a problem. And when they do get mentioned… it isn’t good. 

Finally, the guys get ready for a Charlotte FC side that didn’t deserve to lose to DC United by a score of 3-0. So just how much better will they play in front of the largest crowd in MLS history?

We’ve got nearly 90 minutes of Galaxy-talk. So let’s get you ready for Saturday’s big match!
