Havoc88 Posted May 18, 2010 Share Posted May 18, 2010 Hard to know what to make of this since he may well be in this same position next year, while there is the chance he could have taken off and really led a club (maybe even in scoring) in another league - I like the Turkey rumour, for instance. I'm not sure how 3 goals on 26 appearances gets you any extra respect though, to be honest. Of course there are 11 on the pitch, but from what you can extrapolate from 'Gladbach's form - in the fall anyways - the club played much better when Friend was in the starting XI. It didn't hurt either that Marco Reus emerged as a force in the midfield, but from what I recall, Friend was key in their turn-around. After his injury over the break he seemed to never regain his form or place in the starting XI save for a few starts and substitutions. Perhaps Ed can give his opinion on where Rob fits at 'Gladbach as I think he still can make it and has a lot to offer, just possibly not the goal rate he had in Bundesliga 2.
