PODCAST: Fountains of Blood, Transfer Problems, Arguing about Costa, and the LA Galaxy take on Austin

A Freak Accident hits Calegari, and the LA Galaxy have some minimal momentum heading into the Austin match.

COG STUDIOS, Calif. — Winless in seven games, the LA Galaxy are trying to right the ship on Saturday. That’s when they’ll take on a struggling Austin FC side at Dignity Health Sports Park. 

Hosts Josh Guesman and Eric Vieira want to argue about Douglas Costa, lament the transfer positions the Galaxy now find themselves in and get you ready for the recycled plastic shirts that will grace every MLS game this weekend. 

The guys will start by looking at one of the few wins the Galaxy have had in 2023. They’ll talk about Tyler Boyd’s Goal of the Week, Efrain Alvarez’s uneventful trip to play with the Mexican National Team, and dive into Greg Vanney’s updates from training today. 

Are the Galaxy’s transfer problems Vanney’s problems? And why did the Galaxy wait to get someone across the line? Have they learned things since the first game they didn’t know to start the season?

And can Douglas Costa play any type of meaningful role on this team? Or is it time to just write him off? Also, is Greg Vanney throwing his hands up with Costa?

Josh and Eric will close out the show with a dramatic game preview and all the Austin talk you can handle. 

What’s your prediction for the game? Can you guess better than Eric and Josh?
