Not really familiar with this guy. I have heard his name around the national team and he appears to be a RB Leipzig guy. What else?

Had a boatload of raw talent. Was scoring in astounding rates with his club teams. Then tore his ACL a couple years ago and has had a hard time seeing action since.

Didn't look great with the National Team.

25 years old, perfect age.  Was highly thought of pretty recently but started getting banged up the last couple years.  Now healthy though.

 

Striker which we need, potentially a long term replacement for BWP too.   Fast, athletic, good size and competent in the air.

 

 

The tough part is going to be how Marsch can handle both BWP and Boyd.  Boyd is too good to just sit on the bench and he's certainly not starting over BWP.   Every formation change has blown up on us because Sacha has a specific spot he fits best at.

Excellent feedback from the MF boys on Boyd. Sounds like a good fit.  Can he play wing at all? We need to get more dangerous offensively. We looked good most of the year, but we could improve.

...Or finish. That would be a KEY requirement if we're looking to advance in the CCL knock out stage and beyond.


Ora e per sempre. Forza Metro!!!

Boyd certainly more of a center forward.

 

 

And I don't blame Miazga for leaving one bit.  He would have regretted his entire life not at least trying at the highest level.

Boyd is a very compelling addition. He's the player we hoped Abang would develop into last year but never did.

 

Finally, being associated with fascist-voting Nazis freedom-loving Austrians might actually pay off.

Ehhhh, most would say that Boyd has peaked, doesn't have any more upside. 

 

Maybe he's still a good MLS level striker? Maybe he could be a legendary player for us, but part of me would rather give the minutes to Allen or some young academy kid. 

 

Allen is 23, he needs a chance to play in the next level. If not in 2017, when?

He is a pure striker, deffo won't be playing wide for us. He is listed as 6 2 and at 25 he could easily be bwps understudy for a year two and go on to be he starter long term.

He's pretty slow but, as shown with Wondo speed isn't always needed.

He'll be motivated to finally getting chances even if they're mostly cup matches and subs. If can get to 80% of what he was like at Rapid we've made a great addition.

Wha, you mean those two seasons at Rapid Wein? 

 

He hasn't demonstrated any level of form since his 2014 injury.

yeah, he scored in bunches when he was with Dortmund's reserve team, but that was German 3rd/4th division, iirc. not sure what he can contribute for this upcoming season, maybe it works out, but i don't have my hopes up. and i want to know how much of a hit he'll be against the cap.
