Trinidad and Tobago national team midfielder Chris Birchall is set to join the LA Galaxy this summer. His contract with English side Brighton expires at the end of June at which time he will join the Galaxy according to news today out of Trinidad and Tobago.

ďLA Galaxy are a big club and itís a privilege for me to get a chance to be part of their set up. There are some players who have done well in the League. Stern has been a hit there and then Cornell and Avery are there too. Iíll be playing with and against players of a good caliber. Itís going to be different to playing in England but itís something Iím definitely looking forward to.Ē

I do like the idea of this move if it does go through for the Galaxy. I’ve always thought Birchall would be the type of player that would fit right at home in MLS. No doubt the Galaxy could use his services in the midfield and he could be just the type of player to help get this club into the win column more instead of the draw column.

What do you all make of this possible signing for LA?

    LA Galaxy are a big club? Sorry, I laughed a little inside when I read that part. But good for LAG and good for T&Ts token white kid. Best of luck to them, except for this upcoming weekend.

    Calling the Galaxy a "big club" is direct fallout from signing Beckham. Without that signing, you don't have a lot of overseas interest — or, for that matter, a lot of rumors connecting foreign players to the Galaxy. Signing Beckham has enabled the Galaxy to make a longer-term and larger splash (at least, in terms of perception) than people think (despite recent records and its current style of play).
