LA get a Buddle from TFC for Marshall

Looks life LA is trying to do something about their complete inability to score even if it means letting go of one of their mainstay defenders.

Tyrone Marshall has been traded from the Galaxy for Edson Buddle. At this moment, it looks like TFC got the better of the deal as Buddle has been flat for most of the last two seasons while Marshall has been a key part of LA's strong defense over the last few years.

That said, with just 8 goals in 8 matches, Frank Yallop needs to do something to inspire his club on the attack. And with Abel Xavier joining the club, this is a worthwhile risk. Also, at 6ft 1in in height, he gives Beckham a decent target on free kicks.

A little footnote, Tyrone Marshall's last play for LA was one that resulted in FC Dallas's Kenny Cooper breaking his leg. Becuase of this, Marshall will not be available for TFC's match on Sunday in Dallas.
