Guevara to Toronto

From Honduran star Amado Guevara's rep, Patrick McCabe: "Guevera has signed and will arrive in L.A. on Friday."

Guevara, who had been playing for Motagua, reached a deal with MLS. His previous MLS club, Chivas USA, then traded his rights to TFC for undisclosed 2009 and '10 draft picks. The Canadian club will face the Galaxy on Sunday. Guevara's home debut will be next Saturday vs. RSL.

"This trade was made in the best interests of our club," Chivas Coach Preki said. "We feel good about our group right now, and since the player in question did not fit into our plans, we made the best available deal for his rights."

Toronto was desperate for help and Guevara fills a playmaking role, but will he dramatically improve the club?

Chivas finally gets rid of him almost a year later. Funny, I remember him saying he didn't want to go to Toronto last spring.

If he keeps his head screwed on straight he improves Toronto and the league. Good for them - I only relish NY and LA being completely inept. The fans in Toronto deserve a better product.

=======================================

Depends on which Amado Guevara shows up - the League MVP or the moody primodona.

No doubt he will improve TFC. I think to much has been made of his 'mood' issues. (I suppose every league needs some villians. The C. Americans seem to fill that role in MLS, eg Ruiz, Herron, Pavon). He plays well more often than not. I think being a league MVP says it all. He will be far more productive than current MLS big earners, eg Conor Casey. Guevara, with 'attitude' and skills, is more effective than 95% of players in MLS. imo

NO. Can you say has been.

Considering how out of shape FCT looked last Saturday night, and how generally gawd awful TFC is in general, Gollum can only help.

He'll clearly improve TFC's side. However, its equally obvious one man no matter how he plays wlll only make so much of a difference there. I won't claim to have an idea how well he'll do but he will help them.

Well I was wrong with my post yesterday. Guess I should have more respect for Goff's sources.

One player cannot dramtically change the team, but I am sure he will bring something to TFC.

Yeah: Cancer to the locker room when he doesn't get his way.

They are desperate and Mo figures that he can "manage" him but after spending some time with one of their players that I know at their hotel, I can tell you that if this goes sour, this is the last thing that club will need. Their is already a pretty high level of frustration brewing.

Robert Edu Guevara

Robinson Harmse/Brennan

Depends on Ricketts MF and Tielby Cb trials.

I would say yes.
