  • Things are very bad in LaLaLand — GM Alexi Lalas and the struggling LA Galaxy (winless in seven games) may well be parting ways, according to Greg Lalas: “A source close to Major League Soccer’s glamour franchise tells me that Tim Leiweke, president and CEO of Anschutz Entertainment Group, which owns the Galaxy, made an unannounced visit to the team’s locker room this past week and issued a grim ultimatum: Get things on the right track in the next two weeks or there will be dire consequences.”
  • The MLS Players Union is stepping up their protest over the bonuses for winning the SuperLiga, as players from both teams agree to split the money, as the Union ramps up its public relations battle with the league by labeling the final an “exhibition”. MLS Commisioner Don Garber hit back right away at the Union.
  • The Pali Blues beat Indiana FC in the W-League final at the weekend.
  • The expansion fee for new MLS teams may be rising to $50 million.
