Quote won't work but to iced1776, there was a Norwegian dude with the same name on Norwich a couple years ago. Not the same dude, obviously.


Spelled with a y instead of an h, but I had the same confusion earlier today.

Been a while since we tasted the synergy off the Salzburg/Leipzig scrap heap. Here's hoping he's not completely useless.

Hey at this point... It'll be great to finally use the RB system to add players... I'm hoping he does come over and does very well
I just want Metro to win a title sometime in my lifetime.

7 goals in the Austrian league as a part-time starter. I've seen an Austrian league game (not Salzburg) in person. It wasn't exactly better than MLS.

 

But, whatever, why not. Change of scenery, etc. Can't be worse than Barlow?

Salzburg and LASK are legitimate teams. The rest of the pack are MLS quality or worse. I'm not promising that he's the difference maker we need up front but he's a no-doubt MLS quality player. Better quality than Barlow for sure.

Yeah, LASK has beaten Salzburg (away), AZ (aggregate), Sporting Lisbon (home), Rosenborg (home & away), PSV (home), and Basel (aggregate) this season. They've been awful since the restart, but they were challenging for the Austrian title before that.

If he had been a rotational player at like...Swarovski Tirol, I'd be less optimistic.

Main position is CF, but played entirely as a LW/RW for LASK this past season.

Would assume RBNY see him as a CF considering thats the big position of need, although with the departure of Sims wing depth has taken a hit. Either way there is versatility there

More than likely wasnt Thelwells first choice but not opposed to bringing in someone who knows the general Red Bull set up and style.

Is nice to see someone capable of making multiple signings in charge, even if opinions vary on the quality. Getting some business done early in the transfer window is always a plus, and we havent seen that for a while.

2 senior roster spots available, but out of international spots now.

I'll take it but would have wanted more.

CF and LW can use help for sure now and next year when Royer likely moves along.

The point made by MF on the other thread, not long ago these two signings, especially so close together, would have been cause for serious celebration.    And if our defense hadn't suddenly disintegrated from arguably the best back 4 in MLS to the shit it is now, I'd probably be pretty hopeful.

Synergetic Salzburg Signing! More guys through the door por favor.

 

Would be dope if they next brought in a stud defender. Then b/w Tarek and Parker can see who really wants to stay - and trade the other for, say, a veteran MLS attacker who's had playoff success. Parker with his big salary def looks the man to go if so.


RED. BULL. OUT.

My excitement is tempered by just how poor I believe Armas to be as well as my consternation over the spending habits of a few other teams in the league.

No expectations for the remainder of 2020 so lets get these guys and see if they improve the team. Hopefully these are Thelwells first steps with more to come over the next 6-9 months.

If Jorgensen and Egbo never play, what's the point?

 

Seriously, they should have gotten Royer a green card two years ago.

cant imagine RZA will be here next year. Age, another player in CM in Yearwood, and salary relative to his playing time.

Egbo, I have no idea. Realize difficult circumstances getting any playing time especially when there havent been many matches, but he preceded Thelwell, so who knows.

If they try to loan Jorgensen to the 2 team for the season next year he might just ask to be released.
