While I have major issues with RB global, I find it very unlikely that they dictate starting rosters in NY. 


I sometimes question whether the overlords even remember that RBNY still exists.

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

pretty sure CCJ 's contract expires in 2022.  so we either need to sell or sign him to a new deal.  shouldnt let him leave for free


He signed an multi year extension prior to the 2020 pandemic altered season, of course that could mean a 2 year extension (until 2022) with an option year maybe. Getting back to moving players on is going to be an important part of Thelwells job so well see.

His agency probably wouldnt hate a move to Europe, recent YT video from 4 months ago would indicate they are looking to shop him.

CCJ is such a weird case. Just when you think it's all coming together for him, he either hits a rough patch or sees his role on the team change. I think he's got enough talent to warrant interest from abroad, but he's gotta be a tough guy to scout.

 

I think he sticks around one more year.

CCJ and Clark need at least another season here.

Theres a path to playing time for CCJ even if it might be split between multiple positions. Do we really want CCJ starting in the attacking midfield heading into 2022, though? To me that would mean the team didnt do enough to address the offensive issues over the winter

As for Clark, the kid couldnt get minutes in a team with an anemic attack. Is it best for him to come back here and be primarily used as a substitute or go somewhere hes going to play regularly

It amuses the fuck out of me that people piss and moan nonstop about us being nothing more than a development arm for RB Global, and then assert that RB Global pays no attention to the development of their one and only player targeted for development here.

 Plus they paid more for Struber to come to NY than they are for Clark to go to Leipzig (which is $0 right?). I wouldn't assume Clark is a golden child immune to coach's decisions

Undisclosed fee. Can't be zero, but yeah, probably less than what was paid for Struber.

He wasnt just NOT starting, he wasnt getting any minutes at all. Even if Leipzig isnt paying transfer fee, hes still their asset. They still want him to develop. A parent team, even one not as closeybreated as Leipzig is to RBNY, will express their concerns if their loaned player isnt being coached right.

1) I've never complained about that

2) I didn't mean to suggest they're literally not paying any attention to Clark, but I agree with 67% that they wouldn't meddle with Struber's lineup choices. Both those things can be true.

 

He wasnt just NOT starting, he wasnt getting any minutes at all. Even if Leipzig isnt paying transfer fee, hes still their asset. They still want him to develop. A parent team, even one not as closeybreated as Leipzig is to RBNY, will express their concerns if their loaned player isnt being coached right.

 

Ok yet the situation resolved itself just as you'd expect for any player not going to Leipzig. He sat for awhile, got himself mentally and physically in better shape, and finally came back to earn minutes. I see no signs here that Struber is taking orders from Leipzig.

 

I'm not laying any blame at Clark, Struber, or Red Bull here. Just pointing out that for whatever reason he's not developing at the pace of someone set to join a top Bundesliga squad next year, so maybe another team would be a better loan situation for him.

At this point, there's no reason to believe that Clark will be in Leipzig next year.  I still think his upside is limited because he's physically limited, but he seems to have a ton of will, and that can take you a long way.

Which part of his physicality do you see as most limited?   He has size, decent pace, agility, and remarkable spatial awareness.   He'll only get stronger.

I dont think they will. They bought clark for peanuts and it is in there interest to have him develop. If struber feels he needs to be benched to motivate his development then I dont see why they would object

Sometimes player development and winning games are conflicting goals.
