Matty Ice was a HUGE swing and a miss

28 December 2019 - 01:16 PM

Do we have a track record of failed international signings of players that age and price tag? Jorgensen is one. Is that it? That's what we're going to base this off of? Would signing Barcelona defenders be a shitty idea since we have a "bad track record" of that, AKA one failed attempt?

 

Please enlighten me as to the similarities between Jorgensen and this guy that go beyond "young guy who didn't crack the senior team yet."

I completely understand the import of tiny sample size.   That said, Matty Ice was a HUGE swing and a miss.    They fully expected him to be playing most of last season on the senior squad, and he never proved himself a real starter on the reserves.  What have you seen from this group that gives you any confidence in their ability to find a difference-maker at that age and budget?   I have very little confidence in their ability to find a difference maker at any age or budget, but at least the magic invisible hand of the market will give you some idea that a more proven, higher-priced guy will be a more-proven, higher priced guy.

Does this mean anything to us?

Ralf Rangnick will step back from his position as #RBLeipzig’s sporting director after this season. Instead he will become the new director of football at Red Bull where he will be in charge of #RBNYMLS_19_RBNY.png and the new Red Bull club in Bragantino, Brazil.

 

Kinda seems like good news.

It would be helpful to know what changes they are making that would cause the disruption to seating, ticketing,  and concessions.  Certainly plugging in a couple bigger video displays wouldn't cause all that.
