Toronto trades for Nick Garcia and MLS rights to Ali Gerba

TFC sent a third round draft pick to San Jose for defender Nick Garcia and the MLS rights to Canadian striker Ali Gerba. I am not convinced that this is the end of the trades or signings and roster moves, which makes it hard to form an opinion. Garcia is a veteran (yet four years younger than Tyrone Marshall) and a defender (with Attakora hurt, Brennan hurt and Velez wonky after a rough game and Serioux playing hurt) and we all know that TFC needed defending help.
As for Ali Gerba, just based on his play for Canada he seems to have a scoring touch. He may not have a world beating touch, but here's hoping that it is a "better than what we've seen lately" touch around the net.

I totally agree , we all know we need help at these positions but do these guys have quality and skill to make a difference (remembering that Gerba's not here yet officially), sure hope so !!!!
Gerba was a fan favorite at Milton in England and potted a few goals there , just maybe Mo has saved his reputation with the TFC Supporters .
