Podcast: Players’ Union Salary dump and the Galaxy eye Austin FC. Alright, alright, alright…

We’re discussing two years of LA Galaxy salary information and we’re getting you ready for a fight with the Verde! Austin is in town this Saturday!

COG STUDIOS, Calif. — It’s the show many of you wait for every year. And when we didn’t get the chance to do this show last year, we know a little piece of you died! Well, today is your lucky day because it’s the MLS Salary Show! 

On today’s show, hosts Josh Guesman and Eric Vieira are getting you ready for another big weekend for the LA Galaxy as they get ready to welcome Austin to Dignity Health Sports Park for the very first time. Can the Galaxy, as favorites, get the results at home against a good team that they should beat? Are you nervous about pretending to believe that statement?

Josh and Eric will start with a bit of nod to last week’s El Tráfico before diving headfirst into both the 2020 and 2021 MLS salary release that happened early this morning. 

What are the big surprises when it comes to the 2020 team that maybe you’re glad you didn’t know? And how much was Yony Gonzalez’s one-year contract worth if he would have stayed with the club? Plus, Jorgen Skjelvik finally disappeared off the 2021 list.

Plus, when you look across the league, who are the biggest spenders? And where do the Galaxy fall when comparing positional investment? 

Will there be too many numbers to handle? Can you guess who spent the most money in MLS so far?

Josh will fill you in about the Galaxy’s media call on Thursday and what we learned about Derrick Williams and Los Angeles. Plus, injury updates and great tidbits from Greg Vanney and Julian Araujo. 

Finally, Eric has your dramatic game preview, and he got this one right! Right on the nose!

Thanks for joining us for a very long episode of Corner of the Galaxy. And we’ll see you at the stadium on Saturday! For those watching from home, you’ll be back inside very soon, and we can’t wait to see you!
