Topics I've Started

Haksabanovic linked to Red Bull, apparently to us

05 January 2021 - 11:31 AM

Until i saw he was a winger i thought this was a pretty promising lead.  Sead Haksabanovic 21 years old, was at West Ham for a bit so he has the English connection of most of our guys.  Don't see him fitting with any RB team's recruiting policy besides us or Salzburg.




Gerhard Struber no longer a rumour

English Reporter on twitter says we are going after Gerhard Struber, Barnsley's manager




Edit: very believable as he is a blend of Thelwell's knowhow and RB clubs.  Managed all the youth teams and Salzburg's reserve team at one point.

Thelwell Q&A

For those with an Athletic sub this is pretty good.  link


Will drop a couple notables:


On squad quality / status


it’s still very early days....I think we’re all trying to review and evaluate where we are and what we need to do going forwards...So I think there is a recognition that we do need some additional players of a high quality, and I think we’re at the start of that process. And of course, we’re also reviewing and evaluating where the rest of the group is....and hopefully they prove that they’re capable of taking the club forwards. If not, then of course we need to find other ways in which we can move the club forwards. "


On Long term vision


"I would hope, if I’m thinking about what I want my team to look like going forward, we obviously want a couple of things here. We want higher level performance which helps us to win games, but then also, you made the point and alluded to young players and the academy... And so, it’d be great to create two things, really: Let’s call it performance and pipeline. "


he emphasized we arent going to magically because top salary spenders in the league and focus on club infrastructure, etc. but that isnt new news

Daniel-Kofi Kyereh

Supposedly we are trying to hijack a free transfer St. Pauli thought they had for Daniel-Kofi Kyereh.  Paul Fernie knows him after recruiting him at his prior club.




We definitely need some more competition up there and i like that he is a winger/forward from the limited reading i've done.  i just hope this isnt the only forward they are going after.


Football manager and fifa agree that he is fast lol
