PODCAST: AEG, LA Galaxy, and Supporter Groups in a staring contest? Vanney gives updates on everything.

Greg Vanney updates us on just about everything in his first media appearance in 2023, and the Galaxy go head-to-head with Supporter Groups.

COG STUDIOS, Calif. — The LA Galaxy held their first media availability of 2023. And there were a lot of takeaways to discuss. Plus, have you heard about a boycott? AEG has its hands full on this one. And they probably can’t blame anyone else but themselves.

On today’s show, hosts Josh Guesman (LA Galaxy Beat Reporter) and Kevin Baxter (LA Times Soccer Reporter) discuss all the latest club news and why Dejan Joveljic is only half the man he was last year. We’ll explain. 

The guys will discuss all the news nuggets Greg Vanney dropped in his media availability. That includes discussions about Douglas Costa and Sam Grandsir. Could both be gone? Could both be back? Why did Vanney have some strong words about Costa and wanting to play in Los Angeles?

Could the Galaxy be relying on Jalen Neal on defense? Maybe they’re focused on another young designated player? And why does Vanney think he’s got 2-3 good moves to make?

Plus, Josh and Kevin want to talk about the Supporter’s Groups boycott of the LA Galaxy season. They want Chris Klein gone. So why did AEG bring him back when they didn’t need to? And what is a solution that allows everyone to walk away, saving some face?

Is this a staring contest? And if so, who blinks first? Why could Herbalife and AppleTV be big players in a resolution?

We’ve got a lot to talk about. And as we approach 1,000 shows (show 999), we’re glad you’ve been around for the ride!
