The Galaxy is giving away 12,500 retro T-shirts at Saturday’s 7:30 p.m. game against the Chicago Fire at StubHub Center in Carson.
I suspect they’ll be looking for a little of the Galaxy of old if the club hopes to get a crucial victory — and coach Curt Onalfo wants to keep his job.
Brazilian and Orlando City SC midfielder Kaka is the highest paid player in Major League Soccer this year, according to information released by the MLS Players Union.
Toronto FC’s Sebastian Giovinco is the second highest paid, earning a base of $5.6 million and guaranteed of $7.12 million.
Toronto FC’s Michael Bradley ($6.5 million), New York City FC’s Andrea Pirlo ($5.9 million) and David Villa ($5.6 million) round out the top five
The Galaxy’s Giovani dos Santos is sixth with a guaranteed compensation of $5.5 million.
Galaxy beat writer Damian Calhoun described Sunday’s pitiful performance by the Galaxy against the previously unimpressive Seattle Sounders as “disappointing“; in contrast, much of the other reaction out there was considerably less charitable.

In the meantime, gnaw on this:

Seriously, Onalfo may be a scapegoat; that whole #LAGalaxy FO needs to go.

Scary thought: How many goals would the #LAGalaxy have without Alessandrini?

Does anyone know if the Galaxy Express operate at halftime? I'm ready to fucking leave. #lagalaxy

(The shuttle doesn’t operate until after the 90 minutes are up; I left at half time explaining that the game really was over, but no bus was available. A kindly supervisor spared me from watching the rest of the second half though, giving me a ride to my car at Harbor Gateway Transit Center).

The Galaxy will look to build off of last Friday’s 2-0 victory over Montreal when they visit Orlando City SC, Saturday (Noon; Fox/11).
Orlando City SC defeated the New York Red Bulls 1-0, Sunday. Servando Carrasco scored the lone goal.
Orlando City has scored just four goals this season, but they’ve certainly made them count. They’re 3-1 and in second place in the East. All three victories have come at home.
