Michael Bradley To Toronto FC

ESPN analyst Taylor Twellman has tweeted that Toronto FC are on the verge of signing US national team and AS Roma midfielder Michael Bradley.

 

Bradley has become surplus requirements at Roma after they signed Radja Nainggolan from Cagliari this week.

It has not been a good month for USA midfielders, as Bradley’s midfielder partner in midfield Jermaine Jones is also looking for a new club with MLS a possible destination for the Schalke man.

The Reds Ink Former MVP Guevara

On Wednesday, Mo Johnston and Toronto FC signed former MLS MVP Amado Guevara after negotiating for his rights from Chivas USA. Likely intended to he the offensive ying to Maurice Edu’s defensive yang, Guevara provides Toronto, perhaps the league’s worst offensive team, with some much needed attacking help.

Guevara’s MLS career has involved many accolades, but it has endured just as many controversies. NFL has its T.O., and in many ways, Guevara could be considered MLS’s version of T.O., or A.G. He is a remarkably talented player who, unfortunately, knows it.

2008 Outlook: Poor

No more Mo?

I miss seeing him on the sidelines already and the season hasn’t even started. Toronto fans can take solace in the fact he is still closely affiliated with the team, though now he makes decisions in the boardroom instead of on the pitch. Based on how the team played last year, that could be a good thing.
