Tam McManus to Sign for Rapids; Could be in Weekend Squad

Scottish striker, Tam McManus, will formally sign for the Colorado Rapids this week and could be in the squad for this weekend's trip to Kansas City. Both front office staff and coach Clavijo have confirmed the signing. McManus's presence in the team is now subject to immigration requirements. He has spent most of his career so far with Scottish Premier team Hibernian. Here's a BBC story with more details about his career to date. http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/teams/d/dunfermline_athletic/7319957.stm
The forward, most recently with Scottish League One team Dunfermline Athletic, will be wearing the number 20 so let's hope he can bag as many goals. McManus impressed on the recent preseason trip to Arsenal and the UK.

Cool. We have been hearing rumors about this one for a while. Does the "extra" striker indicate a move to a 4-4-2 ?

It's all possible. At least it would give us some more flexibility. Thanks for the comment John.

at least most ARpiads fans are being level headed about this guy. RSL picks up a guy who's had a hanful of games in the SPL and they're wetting their pants with excitement.
