Will negotiate with Veron.
20-man roster has one forward.

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

Veron on a non-DP contract would be a good asset for this team. Hope they can work something out. I enjoyed his face turn from most loathed to fan favorite.

Zizzo finally gone.  Basuljevic kind of surprised.

 

Best of luck to Grella.  Dude was a good player for us. Has young children, hope for the best.

 

I like Bezecourt and Veron so I'm happy there.

 

Not surprised we exercised the option on Sacha although hopeful we trade him to LA2.

Assuming they do in fact work something out with Veron and Bezecourt, I believe that leaves us with 1 DP spot, 1 international slot (unless Ndam becomes part of the 1st team), and 4 senior roster spots. Though maybe something will change with Collin regarding his international status as he used to have a green card but there were some weird wranglings in Orlando to get his wife a visa.

With Baah and Perinelle out, doesn't that open up 2 international spots?

Baah didn't count since he was placed on IR. Our 9 internationals this year (we have an extra slot that we acquired permanently from Houston in 2009) were Bezecourt, Collin, Escobar, Keita, Lawrence, Murillo, Perrinelle, Royer, and Veron. Putting Baah on season ending IR is what allowed us to grab both Keita and Escobar. 

 

That's an added value that Sacha brings as a DP; no international slot required.

Dyer said during the season that Felipe was close to gaining his Green Card, too.

2 spots opened.

Bezecourt opens a spot, but Ndam is no longer on loan to the USL team, so he fills that spot.

Baah was IR, so didn't count.

Abang was on loan (and we are clear until July on him).

Zeiko would have taken a spot as well but he was loaned to the USL team also, and is now gone.

With Veron gone, that spot is now open as well.

It must have happened because he was not registered as an international on the final roster.

Is Veron gone?  Did I miss something?

Grelladinho gone.   Not much of a surprise, but I was hopeful.

Would be silly to get rid of one of our better players down the stretch wouldn't it?

Do you think his ties to Orange County or Chivas USA mean much to the incoming LAFC?
How many RB fans know, or care, about his ties to Seton Hall?
