    Beita was a battler and solid on both sides of the ball. Hasler would be a substantial downgrade defensively IMO.

    I hate to see him go but oh well. Good luck to him. He seems like a decent guy. I guess he decided to go for more money (assuming) and being close to home since he is from California. For that he had to leave a championship team that could repeat and even do well in CCL for an expansion team if he goes to LAFC. I guess it depends what he is in it for at this point in his career. More glory or a paycheck closer to home.

    Can't really blame him. Won a championship, now he can go play close to home for probably more money. Wish him well.

    I'd be careful with these geographic stereotypes.

    Europe and South America are pretty similar, with a wide distribution of teams and fan bases.

    Am I wrong, aren’t there dozens of out of contract players in Serie A or B available? Seba isn’t the only outstanding Italian player from those leagues who could step in to fill Beit’s shoes.

    Why? Domestic depth player who can play wingback or straight up winger. Good player.

    I don't read much into it he's better than Scottish Championship, when he plays he's the best player on the field. Better and cheaper than Morgan for instance.

    He was the best player on the field Canada vs. Scotland too.

    If it fits under our salary limitations/structure, he would be serviceable.

    I would even put in my 2 cents that we should take a look at Mark Bloom as well. He was useful when he played here on the right side and he would fit in Mannings' idea of being 18 deep for our roster this coming year. Easily he could be inserted in the Canadian Championship and probably 7-10 starts in MLS games to keep guys fresh for CCL and the rest of the year.

    Bloom

    for the right hand side looks like good depth to me. 1 more so offensive-minded (for 3-5-2), one defensive-minded (for 3-5-2), and a natural Right Back that has played our 4-4-2 system before.

    From JMo
    TFC made Beitashour a contract offer, but he turned it down as it would have meant taking a pay cut.TFC went to great lengths to keep Beitashour, but the club’s salary cap situation made it difficult to re-sign him, especially with players getting a bump in pay from their championship bonuses. Ideally, the Reds would have spent Targeted Allocation Money to pay down his salary cap hit, but under league rules they aren’t allowed to do so on a player in Beitashour’s salary range.

    TFC have to be right against the cap already, or somewhere close. You still need min 150k in cap space for a TAM signing

    Because he’s generally regarded as a poor player with a poorer lifestyle, at least that’s why he didn’t stick at falkirk

    Bloom I could get behind. If he comes on a min salary I’d much rather him than Alseth, who takes an international slot

    If there's not money to spend given the other signings we'll see, I could live with this situation.

    Why are people writing off Alseth already. He hasn't been waived and was decent for his limited starts last season.

    I actually like Alseth! I thought he was let go. Good engine, played well when called upon and we may have international spots to spare.

    My bad, I double checked, looks like he had his option declined. Surprising.

    I am pretty sure the plan is to at least bring him in the pre-season to fight for a contract. Expect the same with Spencer, Camargo and Endoh if they don't move elsewhere before like Aubrey did. Pretty much they will be up against draft picks, potential TFC2 grads for the last 4-5 spots on the roster.

    What is Bloom's status in Atlanta? Did they protect him?

    The 2018 optition on his contract was declined by Atlanta. The only issue I see with him is that he has not played all that much in the last three seasons, 9 games in total.

    I think this sets us up nicely for my theory that we're spending our new TAM on a RWB.

    I had a strong feeling Beita was going to leave for LAFC. I figured they'd throw bigger money at him to lure him there (and you certainly can't blame him if it would've meant a paycut to stay here). There's a huge Persian population in California that I'm sure they want to promote to (not that that's the only reason – he's a great player, obviously – but it is a sound marketing move).

    LAFC are building their roster in a very strange way. It looks like their stuck between the ATL model and the old Galaxy-Leiweke model. They just seem to be throwing money at the wall without much rhyme or reason.

    Don't forget he is also from California so closer to home. Can't blame anyone for taking more money and playing closer to home. He won a title already so this may be a better move for him from a family point of view.
