We don't really play with a 10 in our system (at least as it appears we will be playing), but we have Taxi and Morgan sitting behind Klimala, so not sure where a DP 10 would fit in.   Maybe we go 4 2 3 1, but not confident that is in Struber's plans.

I'd prefer 4-2-3-1 but struber seems set on 5 in the back

He seems okay but this is not really a big ambition signing. 


You know what happens when you sign a bunch of okay players?

You have an okay season.

Fuck that.

Being Greek Ive watched him play lots of times. I doubt he will be a DP but he will be similar to royer when he first came. His best position would be AM. Hes fast, could dribble and not afraid to take a shot when he has a chance. Would be a good signing for our system. Hes been very good with rapid Vienna. According to transfer market, he has 45 goals and 19 assists in 90 games. His age is good as he bring experience to a young team. He doesnt have the big name we all want but bwp and royer werent a big name either when they came

Was there really a need to change the thread title to something this insulting to his name?

Edit: better

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

So Dan, I guess he's not named after a well-spring on the steps of the Parthenon?

Not sure why the top teams in the world bother having analytics and scouting departments when they could simply have internet forum users look at players on Wikipedia and Youtube for 4 minutes and make the necessary determination about their abilities.

The 2 in the 3-4-2-1 are basically dual 10's.

We're one of the top two teams in the NYC metropolitan area, probably.

And that's what Taxiarchis Fountas and Lewis Morgan role will be

The bigger question, is this going to be another failed low ball moment by RBNY or are they going to up the transfer fee to secure the players services.

By initial accounts 200k is too low a fee for Rapid to accept, despite Fountas agent saying he isnt going to renew his contract with the team.

A decision should be made before Jan 15th.

Is it a failed lowball moment if they end up signing him on a free transfer in July?
