So the Los Angeles Galaxy found themselves a new cash cow. Perhaps not as lucrative as David Beckham, but he's younger and will probably be just as disappointing on the field. Can't say I'm surprised really. If LA wants to spend MLS will let them spend. The big question is just what happens to Juan Pablo Angel their current third Designated Player. He's gotta go somewhere. I've heard reports that he'll be heading off to the Philadelphia Union and Chivas USA but nothing confirmed.
Well good luck Robbie Keane! I suppose we'll see you sometime next year provided the Timbers don't get into the play-offs.
Enjoy the morning news!
