PODCAST: Brugman in. Is Lingard next? Rumors, a 4-4-2, and an El Trafico for the Galaxy

The LA Galaxy land a defensive midfielder. But is Jesse Lingard next on the menu? And recapping a dominant 4-0 victory over Montreal before a Friday El Trafico.

COG STUDIOS, Calif. — Did you expect an emphatic win over Montreal on Monday night? And did the two-forward set do everything and more for the LA Galaxy?

On today’s show, we’ve got a packed schedule. Hosts Josh Guesman and Eric Vieira have 120 minutes of Galaxy-talk on the way for you because there was only one show this week, thanks to some weird game schedules. So on a Wednesday night, we bring you all the hectic Galaxy news you need to know. 

The guys will start by talking to’s Managing Editor Phil West about how that subscription-based service is coming to Los Angeles. And why they think LA is the perfect place to expand their coverage outside of Texas. 

Then Josh and Eric want to break down the 4-4-2 and talk about the 4-0 win over Montreal. How did Javier Hernandez and Dejan Joveljic play together? And why will Greg Vanney use that formation sparingly? 

Plus, did a meeting with Efrain Alvarez point the youngster in the right direction? Will his aggressive game against Montreal be the stepping stone to a longer MLS career?

Then the guys want to talk about the transfer rumors that saw Uruguayan defensive midfielder Gaston Brugman sign with the team on Wednesday and why Jesse Lingard rumors aren’t fake. But can the Galaxy get him over the line? And is this simply a reaction to LAFC signing Gareth Bale?

And Josh will kill some other rumors that have been hanging around while passing down some of the conversations that were had with Vanney over a long sit-down on Saturday afternoon. 

Finally, Josh and Eric will get you ready for El Trafico on Friday night and tell you why the Galaxy have the least amount of pressure they’ve had going into one of these games in a while. Can the “mental midgets” finally pressure the Galaxy in a game this year?
