I understand a potential transfer fee doesn't mean much to you, but surely you appreciate that it does to the likes of Thelwell

What I appreciate is when a GM improves the team. I don't mind that he makes a few bucks off a loan, but ultimately I want Metro to get better. And I do think losing Stroud instead of exposing Jorgey makes us worse. Stroud brought play making abilities that only Kaku has on the team. Valot and Rza failed when they played the 10 spot, and Stroud actually helped create chances and possess the ball. I also would make an argument that none of the players Thelwell brought so far are much better than Stroud, if at all. Perhaps Yearwood will be as he is still young, but Stroud actually stepped up in play-offs in limited time while Yearwood didn't.

I think you're misunderstanding what I mean by 'transfer fee'. I'm not talking about whatever compensation we might be receiving for the 6 month loan, I'm talking about the fee when we permanently sell his contract to another team.

 

There seems to be reason to believe that Danish soccer circles still think highly enough of Jorgensen that we can recoup at least some of the $2M+ we spent for him. That's Thelwell's goal and his priority over protecting Stroud.

Let's hope you are right, and ultimately we will get the money you speak of and we use it to improve the team. A bit upsetting now though, given loss of Stroud, and the fact Thelwell hasn't really brought anyone in yet who is much better than Jared. But really, from personnel perspective I would rather lose Valot, Davis, or Barlow over him. He is also younger than any of these guys (aside from Jorgey).

Were so upset about losing Jared Stroud and his 0.14 assists per game. Man this club has sunk pretty low.

It seems to me that if the FO was willing to take a chance on losing Stroud they probably did not rate him and he likely did not fit into their 2021 plans. Its done. Move on.
