    The one name on the expansion draft we should make an effort to trade for is Saad Abdul-Salaam from SKC. He lost his starting RB spot to Zusi, but was one of the best RBs in 2016. Fills a hole we desperately need to fill and is probably available.

    If his soccer career is over, he’d be an ideal candidate for the Galaxy marketing department.

    He used "your" when he should have used "you're" on his official twitter feed.

    Have you recruited for that department before?

    There's a possibility we'll see a trade between LAFC and the Galaxy tomorrow.

    The rivalry will be more fun if both teams refuse to do business with each other.

    And if LA FC signs Jermaine Jones

    Ola Kamara, part of the deal that could send Gyasi to Columbus?

    YES! This x1000. The coach we should have hired last year.

    And nobody from the Galaxy has been taken in the Expansion Draft.

    I will never be thankful enough to Chivas for allowing us to dump Angel and sign Robbie Keane back in 2011.

    26 years old GK, option hasn't been picked up by Columbus. Re-Entry Draft available, made only 80 k last year, I could see him being picked in the first round on Friday.

    That tweet was deleted, though I'm assuming it says something about us being interested in Brad Stuver? I would be extremely disappointed if he was our first pick. He's a career backup with very little upside.

    Yes, it was about Stuver. There usually are very few players selected in stage one of this Draft (often none) because you have to pick up the player's option, and I don't think this year will be different (even if we have a ton of AM). I'm not shocked if we select him to be our 2nd/3rd keeper. That said, I'm not sure he's above a 24 years old Kempin or a 29 years old Rowe who have more experience.

    No doubt, but I doubt we select him in Round 1 because he's on a senior deal and we'd be selecting him to be in a senior roster spot at $84k (he's guaranteed at least a 5% raise). On the open market, he'd be a 21-24 roster spot player on $67,500 (senior minimum next year). That and I agree that I don't see the upside to him over Kempin (Rowe's salary is relatively large if you don't expect him to start). I think that extra senior roster spot is important.

    I think this is the tweet:

    OK, then I agree if we select him with the first pick of the second round it's not good business, there are a lot better players available.

    Dyer seems to not know how to write "Stuver" so here's the valid tweet :



    Waiver Draft tomorrow, with the Galaxy holding the first pick. Waiting for the available players list, but don't hold your breath, usually no one gets picked in this Draft.

    Usually a team doesn't need 15 players to fill up a roster. I expect us to go for someone tomorrow.

    It appears that the Sounder's gamble of putting Alonzo on the expansion draft list paid off. Not a total surprise. I did not really review the unprotected player list and was somewhat surprised that San Jose did not protect Marco Urena who scored 5 goals for the Quakes in his first year in MLS. This gives LAFC some quality backup depth at forward if they sign Diego Rossi as rumored.

    Except that Alonso got really ticked off!

    They really are Chivas in disguise.

    We used to get under Sacha's skin really easily back in his Chivas days. He's probably grown up by now...
