he hasnt fallen..just wasnt good enough for cpl or uslc..and was going to celtic reserves/youth..just shows again to stop overestimating players who played youth ball in a certain place

Usually clubs only expect a couple of players at best in any age cohort at youth level to actually make it in first team terms and the rest are there to fill jerseys to a large extent and are viewed as long shots that might put the pieces together. That means the final destination for most youth players can easily be several tiers down from where they were at youth level.

Apologies if I missed it above, but I noticed LBG has signed in Malta.

Pretty good level relatively. It would be nice if we could transfer in and out to other first divisions like this. Obviously you would take B2 over Malta or whatever, but it is a bit frustrating to see guys to and from 3rd tier Norway or whatever.

A good news story in that regard is Adjei, who is actually banging in a few goals in the Allesvenskan:

York maybe should have kept him, :)

The dogpile on Adjei was weird to watch. He was legitimately among the best goal-scorers in the league: his strike rate from open play per 90 minutes in 2019 was around the same as Campbell and Malonga (Campbell 0.42, Adjei 0.44, Malonga 0.46), and yet apparently everyone just mutually agreed he was terrible.

And I almost understand why: he didn't contribute as much outside of goal-scoring as people probably expected from a target man, but that obviously shouldn't have mattered given his goalscoring contribution and the fact that his hold-up play was still ok.

This is especially funny because York have signed two other strikers who scored goals and contributed almost nothing else: Rodrigo Gattas and Alvaro Rivero. But they weren't dogpiled because they don't "seem" like target forwards and therefore apparently aren't expected to do anything other than put the ball in the back of the net. (And for reference, Gattas' strike rate from open play per 90 minutes was 0.32 and Rivero's is 0.42 currently)

A lot of great finishes in his time here
