Green Daze

So yeah, once again, it seems some arguably caffeinated scribes in various places have gotten ahead of the actual Julian Green story at Hamburg, mostly by supposing the worst. Frankly, I hope that in a few weeks, the kid has already played once or twice for the Under-23's and built a match fitness more closely resembling the Bundesliga variety and we can all get on with life. I guess we will know more after tomorrow's meeting (which was not called by the player, mind you).

The interesting character in this whole saga has to be Julian greens agent. This guy played eleven years for bayern Munichs academy team, and he in that time made one first team appearance.

Basically roman grill is an in house agent for Munich, and one would have to surmise that he is a company man.

The twist in this story, Julian greens agent is also Phillip lahms agent.

Didn't know what to think given all the "reporting" on Green. Green, at least from a distance and from other reporting, did not sound like a truculent prima donna who had obscene ideals on how and when he would play. Greg, thanks for straightening that mess out.

From a source close to No Short Corners, it is known that Julian Green will be back in MLS at the end of the German season to polish his game in the best possible place on Earth for American soccer talent. The Portland Timbers are the hot leaders for Green's services, and their ace manager, the man who is singularly responsible for filling MLS with the world’s premier attacking talent, Caleb Porter, is rightfully the man to revive Green's stalled career. There is no better place for Green to play than MLS, where he can learn the American style of play, immersing himself in the nuances of the American forward, communing with the American spirit on American soil playing the American way, which flows from the essence of the American way of life. My source remains nameless, harassed with the sobriquets "troll" and "dik" but steadfastly denies petty rumors that Green will be playing anywhere other than MLS come summertime. When asked for more details about Green's future, my source doubled down and explained Green would sign a sixteen year deal with Portland, allowing him to grow his game in American greatness until the end of his career. Nothing better could be expected of such a young player. This one, coming soon to an MLS stadium near you, is marked for greatness!

John luck, when you start using words like truculent and sobriquet, I know your full of it. That and when you try and see how far up Greg back side you can stick your head.

dikranovich, I think you know, deep in your heart, that you really deserved such a jest. Just try not to be such a troll, and I am sure Greg will consider that to be a gift for this (relatively) new year.

If Twitter is to be believed, Green scored for the U23s today.

Timmy, are you sure you did not just exit a time warp from 2014 when J green had 15 goals in 23 games?

Terrence Osbourne said...

He's only 19, scored a WC goal in a knockout game, only a small number of human beings can say that, that alone has to be a serious mindf&*^*. Obviously he ain't blowing people's minds at Hamburg but I'm going to wait to see if he can get it together. If not, he'll go elsewhere and if he has the drive he'll eventually be fine. Sorry for the obvious comment but people are getting mentally tweaked over this.

Timmy, nice job, he did score in friendly today against a team they ended up beating 13-2. Yes, the one is suppose to be in front of the three
