It's an episode packed with special guests. This week, Max and Vince welcome Gab Marcotti to the show in the first segment followed by LAFC Radio Voice Dave Denholm and producer Mario Ruiz to talk about an unprecedented event in world football.
First up, it's author, journalist, and TV personality Gab Marcotti. Gab joins us from ESPNFC and Il Corriere dello Sport to talk about the return of football in Europe. Are we close to coming back? Gab tells us what's going on in London, why Germany is a special case, and he helps us settle a debate about Argentine footballers and the best players that maybe weren't in the best shape.
Following Gab, the guys turn their attention to a first of its kind event hosted by LAFC this Saturday. It's a masterpiece from LAFC's radio voice Dave Denholm and ESPNLA 710 producer Mario Ruiz, it's the "Faux Trafico" - a derby between LAFC and the Galaxy called all from the mind of Dave and put together beautifully by Mario.
This Faux Clasico is a full 90 minutes and will air (YouTube, Twitch, LAFC.com) when LAFC would have faced the Galaxy at the Banc on May 16. Dave and Mario take us behind the scenes of the match and how they made it seem like it was happening live with prematch lineups, a halftime break, chants from the 3252, and more. You'll want to check this out either before you listen to the match because you'll be blown away at the unbelievable attention to detail.
