The Bundesliga has long been known as an incubator for young North American phenoms, but FC Augsburg's purchase of Ricardo Pepi is different. It's the biggest Bundesliga move of the January transfer window thus far, it's the second-biggest-ever sale price for a MLS player, and it's the most FC Augsburg has paid for any player ever. A lot riding on the El Paso native's shoulders...but at least one reporter who knows him well thinks he'll but up to the challenge. Listen in as Texas soccer writer Jon Arnold tells Matt about Pepi's meteoric rise, his pedigree from the vaunted FC Dallas academy, and what Bundesliga fans should expect from the center forward going forward...

If you're an optimist, the draw might give the Galaxy the one point they need to make the playoffs. But both sets of people would agree, the next two games are challenging. And getting results against Sporting KC and the Seattle Sounders would mean the Galaxy earn the post-season spot! On today's show, hosts Josh Guesman and Kevin Baxter discuss the Galaxy's pathetic first-half performance against a bottom-dwelling team in the Western Conference, and why Greg Vanney may have gotten it wrong with the players he chose for the starting lineup. And just how important is Julian Araujo to the Galaxy? Newsflash -- very important! Was that a peek at what the Galaxy might be facing once Araujo moves on from Major League Soccer? But Josh and Kevin are keeping their eyes on the Wednesday night matchup with Sporting KC. Kevin thinks the Galaxy are catching KC at the perfect time. And their schedule and the history of games played Children's Mercy Park might lean into that... almost. Josh thinks that getting a point from both KC and Seattle is key to getting into the playoffs. But with the inconsistency of the entire conference, maybe just a win against Minnesota will be enough? Along the way, the guys are talking about an "elite" level performance from Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez and why a spurt of goals could make a big ripple for the Galaxy and for the Golden Boot. Josh even has a chart for you to look at or something. Finally, the guys preview the Wednesday night matchup, why the Galaxy will be missing another defender, and why SKC might be down a goalkeeper and their leading scorer. There's a lot to discuss, and we're delighted you could join us!
The LA Galaxy dropped points against FC Dallas in a game that if they won could've put them in 4th place of the standings. Alex and GalaxyGuy join Gio to discuss what's up ahead for the Galaxy in the final three games of the season.

LOS ANGELES (Saturday, Oct. 23, 2021) – Down 2-0 at halftime, the LA Galaxy battled back to earn a 2-2 draw against FC Dallas at Dignity Health Sports Park on Saturday night. Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez tallied his team-leading 14th goal of the season, while Sebastian Lletget registered the game-tying goal as the Galaxy stretched their unbeaten run to four matches (2-0-2) dating back to Oct. 3.

A lot, actually. And we want to share it with you. On today's show, hosts Josh Guesman and Eric Vieira talk about all the pertinent points the Galaxy accomplished against the Dynamo and why it makes Wednesday's game one of the most important of the year. In actuality, it all comes down to allowing Greg Vanney to start thinking about the FC Dallas game before the Houston game was even over. And that's something the Galaxy have failed to accomplish this entire season. And with six points out of nine so far in the week, the Dallas game takes on an importance that might not have been there if the Galaxy don't win midweek. The guys will talk about the significant contributions from the alternate lineup guys like Sacha Kljestan, Efrain Alvarez, and Kevin Cabral. And they'll also focus on Jonathan Bond's clean sheet and Julian Araujo's continued aggressiveness. Even Sebastian Lletget and Jonathan dos Santos get some kind words lobbed in their direction. But the defensive pairing of Nick DePuy and Derrick Williams also deserves some focus. Josh and Eric will also discuss the latest salary numbers and who has spent the most money at each team segment throughout the league. Plus, they'll talk about the dollar cost per point and why it's okay to be spending a lot if you're getting a lot. Finally, the guys will look ahead to a match with FC Dallas that could have the visitors Pepi-less. What's the key to unlocking the Dallas defense? And why should the Galaxy's game plan be to score first... again? We've got a great show for you today, and we're glad we can get you ready for a Saturday night matchup! We'll see you at the game!
On this week's episode of Allocation Disorder, Paul and Sam break down the new, revolutionary Leagues Cup format that was announced earlier this week.

And is this Concacaf's version of the European Super League? After the Leagues Cup talk, Paul and Sam move on to a discussion of FC Dallas. Sam yells. It's entertaining. You should listen to it.
