    He’s not bad. I’d suspect it’s the whitecaps however. This looks like their type of signing.

    Whitecaps have talented sophmore Jake Nerwinski and new signing Mexican international Efrain Juarez at RB. Looks like they've finally come in from the cold and sorted out their RB issues after giving up Beita three years ago. Long are the days of the Jordan Smith-Fraser Aird Neptune sized blackhole occupying the right side of the field for the Whitecaps.

    Petrasso still seems unlikely to me. I don't think he's better than Hasler. Probably wouldn't push him the same way Beita or a player of his caliber would fight for minutes at that spot. Just very unambitious. Plus we gotta use our TAM on something. Seems the most obvious move to use it there.

    ^ oh I certainly wouldn’t call it ambitious either. But he has enough potential where I wouldn’t mind having him on the roster.

    Definitely more backup than starter, as you mentioned.

    The rumour that TFC offered Beitashour less then what he was getting indicates they might think Hasler is more starter then he was last year. But then, the other reports of them wanting a true winger type might indicate otherwise.

    Sooo....

    Is Hasler a starter on an MLS cup competitive team?

    So far we know we lost Cheyrou to retirement and Beitashour and Edwards are gone as well. I am still concerned why we haven't resigned Zavaleta, Cooper, Hernandez, Endoh?

    Also if we just received 3 million in allocation money how are we strapped for cash?

    It because cap space and tam are two different things. For instance you can't use TAM to up an offer to a guy by say 50-100K.

    Remember The Man, The Legend, The Goal 5-12-07 and All That #9 Left On The Pitch, Thanks For The Memories !!!

    You could be right.
    Grego-Cox, the other player released by QPR today, signed with another club pretty much straight away.

    If we’re so strapped for budget space why is Irwin not off the roster yet for GAM?

    strapped for cash this past season sure, but there's a lot that's changed. dead contracts shifted off, others negotiating or already signed to new contracts. Plus you have to factor in Annual cap increase, Contracts coming off the books from guys who aren't on the team, as well as the huge influx of TAM.

    Bono and Zavs are probably the only guys who are getting significant raises. Everyone else - the Coopers and the Beitashours' and the Moors of the world - are being offered cuts to stay so we can invest elsewhere.

    There's long term thinking involved in this. Seba might very well be gone after 2019. At that time, our tactics might significantly change.

    The example of how this shakes out is Endoh.

    He is out of contract but going to camp to try to win a spot in the 21 or with TFCII. He was drafted back before we started the 3-5-2. He fits a certain tactical approach. He actually had a decent start in his first year but tailed off. Having watched him a bit for TFCII, I think he would start for a couple of MLS teams and be the first off the bench for a couple more. If we ever go to a 4-3-3 or to a wide 4-4-2 or to a 4-2-3-1, Endoh is depth for that right forward/winger spot. We are not going to a 4-3-3 or 4-2-3-1 until after Seba leaves but Endoh remains an option if we go with a 4-4-2. If Endoh is kept around, that means the braintrust is thinking of 2020 (when Seba might be gone). On the depth chart, he would currently be #19-#21 - he's serviceable at that spot. Assuming he keeps up his work rate (everybody says he works as hard in camp as anybody else), I'd keep him for a couple of more seasons at the minimum wage.

    That would an interesting signing but I don't see it happening. We already have 5 promising strikers: Giovinco, Altidore, Ricketts, Hamilton and Akinola.

    Maybe it's just me but i still really wanna see what they do with Jordan Hamilton this season. I buy into his potential to be at least a starter in this league. He needs first team minutes at a level above USL and if we sign another forward as the FO wishes that should push him further down the depth chart.

    I feel bad for the guy. I think it's best for his career that he leaves but I hope he doesn't

    The thing is where does he leave to? I feel like he might of gone out on loan to Europe again but his initial experience there was so poor i doubt it'll ever happen

    Maybe an MLS team that needs a striker. He'd at least make the bench on most teams in my opinion

    I’ve heard the rumour that JH isn’t exactly working his ass off during practices and that’s why he didn’t make many first team appearances. My source could be blowing smoke, who knows, but knowing what I know of The Gregfather, where there is smoke....

    Not saying we'd sign him simply saying Europeans can play well against Mexican/Central American teams.

    i think they would have cut him my now then.

    Bradley demands that this team only has players of strong character. And players speak well of JH. Maybe he was lazy at one point, but MB would have torn him a new one by now

    Then why hasn’t he featured many first team minutes?

    Spencer had his chances and was cut
    JH did not have his chances, and was not cut
