Brugman’s debut spurs the LA Galaxy to victory over Atlanta. Now, what does Vanney do with Cabral and Joveljic?
COG STUDIOS, Calif. — It was ugly at times, but the LA Galaxy finally snapped that three-game losing streak. And while Atlanta United was not exactly playing up to top-tier standards, the Galaxy still showed some glimpses of what they might be able to do down the stretch.
Hosts Josh Guesman and Kevin Baxter discuss the Galaxy’s 2-0 victory and get into some details surrounding the game, both on and off the field.
Josh and Kevin start with Greg Vanney’s choice of starting lineups. That included a Galaxy debut for Gaston Brugman, and starts for Chase Gasper and Eriq Zavaleta. And while those were question marks at the beginning of the game, they all worked well.
What can Brugman bring to the table for the Galaxy? What does a distributing six look like down the road? And are the Galaxy still looking to add one more piece?
Plus, how big of a story will Dejan Joveljic be in the next 13 games? Probably one of the biggest. Especially as he continues to score goals every time he’s on the field. But how hesitant will Vanney be to start Joveljic?
