Max + Vince Podcast #170 | Changing The Batteries With Special Guest Julian Gaines

This week’s podcast title is brought to you by the mind of Max Bretos and 80s band Menudo. LAFC has hit a rough patch. The results haven’t been there. The legs are a little tired. And the games keep coming. Max and Vince talk about the worries they have after the 4-0 loss in Houston and how LAFC players are saying they’ll get past this tough moment. After that, Julian Gaines joins the show. Julian is healthy after a long injury layoff and made his MLS debut in front of family and friends in Houston. The guys ask Julian about his injury and what it took to get back on the field, how he’s adjusting to a new position, and what’s the deal with the No. 80 on his jersey?
