    Even in the offseason, you can barely take a week off. The Max + Vince Podcast is back to take you through a ton of LAFC news. We had transfers, trades, even the MLS scheduled dropped, and, of course, the MLS Expansion Draft. First up, it's the big news. LAFC midfielder Eduard Atuesta is on his way to Palmeiras in Brazil. The Colombian was a pivotal player for LAFC since his arrival in 2018. He joins the back-to-back Copa Libertadores champions. Max and Vince break down the move for Atuesta and LAFC, and the guys talk about what it will take to replace him. Then it's more roster moves. The 2021 MLS Expansion Draft went down and LAFC was a focal point. Tristan Blackmon was selected by expansion side Charlotte FC. But LAFC also gained a player, trading for Ismael Tajouri-Shradi, Charlotte's 5th pick of the draft. Max and Vince go over all the comings and goings before going over the 2022 MLS Schedule - a lot of exciting away days incoming for LAFC supporters. We wrap the episode and the 2021 MVP season with an MVP guest - Tom Bogert of MLSsoccer.com joins Max and Vince. Tom is the go-to guy for transfer news around MLS. His scoops have become legendary around these parts. So, we get a chance to chat with him just as his offseason is heating up and he's got incredible insight into what LAFC is going to be up to over the next couple of months, including talk of a DP and more.

John spoke about what the team is looking for in its next coach, what the roster needs are for next season, and more. It's worth your time as a fan of the Black & Gold. Before that, Max and Vince preview the MLS Cup final and look back on the playoffs. Do they need a bit of a rework? Max and Vince give their thoughts. And silly season is upon us as the rumor mill has cranked up. Once again, MLS looks primed to bring some of the hottest young talent from South America to the league.

    Max + Vince Podcast #117 - The End Of 2021 & The Biggest Offseason In LAFC History

    Max and Vince wanted to start off by thanking all the listeners (and viewers) of the podcast during the 2021 season. LAFC may have come up short in its pursuit of a playoff spot but it's been awesome doing this show for all of you this season and meeting many of you at matches, tailgates, away trips, or around Los Angeles. We're not totally finished for 2021 but we'll be taking a few weeks off. Then we'll do our best to bring you any offseason news and reactions as they happen. Now to the match. LAFC was always going to be up against it, needing a win and some help. They conceded the first goal to Jonathan Lewis and after a huge miss from the normally reliable Chicho Arango, things unraveled from there. Max and Vince break down what Colorado did to wrestle control of the match from LAFC and how the Black & Gold play on the edge led to the high score. That brings us to the offseason. LAFC has a considerable amount of big decisions to make. The guys give their takes on where they think LAFC is leaning and what might be the path to righting the club in 2022.

    Max + Vince Podcast #116 - Everything But The Finishing Touch & LAFC Still Alive

    Here are the facts. LAFC fell short against the Vancouver Whitecaps in a match they needed to win to control their own destiny. The 1-1 draw now puts LAFC's playoff hopes in jeopardy. They need a win on the last day of the season and a few results to go their way. Now to the show. Max and Vince go through the match against Vancouver. Carlos Vela had more than a cameo but the team couldn't find the finishing touch it needed. Is that a good or a bad sign for the match with the Rapids? The guys also go through all the playoff scenarios and give their thoughts on who might start in the final match of the season.
