He can probably compete for minutes on the bench of RB II like Carmona.

Which position is he supposed to fill?


There appear to be more holes than we thought.

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

Yeah, one says 150k, the other 1.5 million.  Big difference! :D

I read it as $150,000 for the loan fee, and an option to buy afterwards for $1.5 million. But that's just how I took it.

He claims he texted Elias Manoel directly.

also weird thing here is physically he is more of the Ngoma profile (really explosive, quick, etc) though not as much of a nature finisher.  But by being 5'9ish, not the type of guy Struber usually plays up top.  But other RB teams have played with people of his profile up top (Nkunku, Timo Werner, Adeyemi) and Struber should figure out a way to do that too long term.  I just dont know if he will.  But Struber may not be his main coach anyway.

RBL played a similar 3-4-2-1 system i believe for Nkunku.  Timo was a mix of lone forward and 2 forward systems.  Adeyemi i think was mainly 2 forward systems from my limited watching

(definately not what I want to see to help this years team)

guessing this is 2023 signing. Maybe throw him on some games in 2022.  

Rent to buy to fill in for development/depth behind Luq and Morgan.  

 

Luq Morgan

Serge Omir Harper (depending on position)

Talent is talent but this definitely feels like a weird prioritization. Unless Schneider knows something we don't we're going to have a lot of attacking mids on the roster next season. Maybe they view him primarily as a forward.
