In Topic: Will (when) we sign new players?

13 February 2021 - 03:50 PM

Who is feeding the fans that narrative? Every single reporter for the team, sides with the team. Before Thelwell came on, during Hamlets tenure they paid transfer fees notably Jorgensen. I never claimed the team isnt spending transfer fees, Im saying the team isnt going out and getting someone that can help now. Theyre paying for potential


People in groups like this are feeding that to others and people are running with it without any real knowledge of the situation. Thats who.

Someone in another thread said he was leaving because the team didnt rate him. And the negativity is due to only signing USL players and academy products. When even small market teams are paying transfer fees, it makes it more difficult to think that the team has any ambition past supporting Leipzig.


But what you said isnt accurate. They have paid transfer fees and the majority of the players signed arent from usl and the academy. Thats a false narrative that people like to run with which is completely inaccurate. People just like to go with the flow and run with what they are being fed.

In Topic: Kaku got out

Has his Saudi registration been approved?
If his departure from RB is ruled invalid,
would his new club forfeit for fielding an ineligible player?


He cant play without the ITC. If its ruled Red Bull is in the right not releasing it some sort of settlement will need to be reached. Kaku is building a reputation.

In Topic: We need a better LB and DP game changing players

if our base formation is 4-1-2-1-2 they play the same position (forward), just different styles.  Clark is our 10.  but moving on from the dead horse. We will see what happens.


No they dont, Fábio is center forward. Haksa was not coming to play center forward, he has never played that position. Dont know where you got that from.

As of Jan 20, Oeste was negotiating with a Brazilian club to take Fabio link
 
Then on Jan 23rd Dyer says Haksa talks are dead link
 
Then we swoop in to sign Fabio that week
 
Honestly i think they knew we need some attacking help and when Haksa fell through got Fabio as a cheaper alternative that allows them to reassess what we will do in the summer based on our budget.  They are not the same player but both help the attack nonetheless.    I hope I'm wrong though. 
 
Half of the people here scream from the rooftops that RB is cheap, so i'm surprised so many think RB is above doing this if they perceive the risk of losing a 3-6mm asset for free.


The Haksa and Fábio move have nothing to do with the other, the players play completely different positions.
