    Does anyone feel like Chiellini makes sense for LAFC? Or is this the old LA Galaxy model of bringing in a big name past (or at the tail edge of) his prime just for the recognition?

    • Union fan says:

      I think it’s a decent enough signing. He’s not a DP so they aren’t thinking he’s a written in pen starter, or they are building their lineup around him. At worst, he’s another coach on field in games/training. Really he’s luxury depth as they have fairly good stable of CBs. Question is how many of those CBs might leave this window. That could change how it looks and if he stays healthy.
