We have to stop focusing on age and start focusing on talent. Just because your young does not mean your good.
This guy not even going to play. The obvious person to supplant is Davis and he is our captain.
Another 1.5 million down the drain.
This is how Red Bull operates, whether you or any other fan likes it or not is irrelevant, they will continue to prioritize signing young talent, developing it, and selling it. Its the same for every one of their clubs, so RBNY arent a special case.
Its acceptable to feel like this is taking a risk, especially after the Jørgensen situation, and although that looks bleak to this point hes still a young kid and could come good for this team.
Important to remember that he was signed during a time when Marsch had left, the previous performance analyst had left, there was little in the way of a scouting department, and Hamlett and Armas were running things by themselves stateside. They were provided with three options to pick from and settled on Mathias.
Since then a performance analyst was hired, a head scout was hired, a head of sport with pedigree (who was the sporting director from one of the fastest rising clubs in England) was hired, and theyve begun the process of reshaping this team.
We can question all of them preemptively, but Id rather wait until I see how the players theyve recruited perform on the field.
Dont get me wrong, we are still lacking in top end talent and are desperately in need of some pace. Weve been linked to a few FWs that could help this team in the short and long term, so Im hopeful thats an ongoing process.
You are right young doesnt equal good, but Brentford thought enough of him to buy him a year ago. He got lost in the fold, and at this point probably isnt good enough to get into a squad that is pushing for promotion to the Premier league, but Brentford has a recent track record of finding some really good players and selling them on; see Neal Maupay, Ezri Konsa, Chris Mepham who are all playing in the PL.
