It seems as though maybe Bruce Arena has found his man between the pipes. The LA Galaxy have signed Jamaican goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts.

“I have known Donovan for a number of years as a goalkeeper with the Jamaican National Team and have always been impressed with his physical qualities. After a closer examination of the player, I am absolutely amazed with his abilities both on and off the field,” said Galaxy General Manager and Head Coach Bruce Arena. “It is also a position that we felt the need to improve and believe that he will be a great addition to our team and has the potential to be one of the best goalkeepers in MLS.”

Ricketts brings some solid experience, something the Galaxy definitely lacked last year. While some may think he isn’t the best option for the club I think it is a move that could work out.

What do you make of this signing? Couldn’t be any worse than last year right?

    I look forward to watching the Crew slot home a few goals against him next season.

  • Kaiser

    He's better than anyone they have got right now.<br />

    Would now like to see them address thier biggest need, a defensive midfielder.
