Sandro Kulenović, another swing and a miss but Struber/Thelwell?

Doesn't matter much if he's any good.  They wanted him and couldn't get him.

My favorite mantra from certain beat writers over the past few years every time a pursuit fell through - "well it's great to see that they're trying!"

I do not see why a player like Kulenovic would even consider coming to play here. There is no track record of a young European coming to this team and going on to bigger and better things. Now for a guy who looked to be failing like Klimala or not particularly highly rated like Yearwood, I understand but this Kulenovic actually seems to be pretty good.

OaM paints a rosy picture of him but then calls out some pretty awful scoring rates. 12 goals in 79 appearances in the Crotian first division, including a stretch if 0 in 16 for the team he currently has a contract with. And I think fair to assume we'd have been looking at a seven figure transfer fee here if Klimala is anything to go by.

They have a lot of good stuff over there but I feel that most of their writers have their Red Bull branded rose-tinted goggles firmly affixed lately.

I was trying to be charitable and not besmirch some of the good work they do over there.

100% they've gone out of their way to take the "everything is fine don't look at that growing fire over there" approach. But hey probably not the worst thing to have some optimism out there to counter balance the cranky old farts on other platforms like this one lol. Agreed they're still easily the best, most in-depth coverage of the team we have out there right now.

Such a good first and last name combination.  Too bad it did not work out :(
