PODCAST: Chicharito back for 2023. LA Galaxy have all the momentum heading into RSL Match

The LA Galaxy are heavily favored going into the match with Real Salt Lake. Is this the Galaxy’s chance to shine for a spot in the playoffs?

COG STUDIOS, Calif. — Are the LA Galaxy that bad on Fan Appreciation Day? The answer is yes and no. 

On today’s show, hosts Josh Guesman and Eric Vieria discuss the LA Galaxy’s recent form and why Riqui Puig and Gaston Brugman might be the only Galaxy players up for a league-wide post-season award. 

And did you hear the one about Chicharito coming back in 2023? Were the Galaxy’s contract requirements too light? Will Chicharito be the same player he’s been over the last two seasons? Thirty-six goals over three years isn’t something to be laughed away, but will the Galaxy have room in that DP market to add a game-changer on the wings?

Josh and Eric will talk about the 2023 season-opener that will be played at the Rose Bowl and why, in some ways, it’s a battle for real estate in Los Angeles with LAFC. Are you happy to play the Nostalgia game? Is this a straight-up money grab? And how important will Apple TV be in letting this situation play out?

Finally, the guys are getting you ready for the game against Real Salt Lake. It’s as simple as controlling their destiny. But what has shifted in the universe and the league to see the Galaxy as a team clubs don’t want to face? Have Puig and Brugman put the fear of god into playoff teams?

We’ve got a great show for you today as we almost wrap up the regular season. Will the Galaxy find success against a struggling RSL side? Or will they continue the trend of shrinking under the pressures of Fan Appreciation Day?
