You already acknowledged you were dumb to say that age doesn't matter, maybe just leave it at that.

It was a general discussion on a general thread about a player who plays for my club, how dare I comment on it.



Yes he's very good. Riley McGree went from the same club in that "s**t league" to comfortably holding a spot in a Championship club competing for promotion within two seasons, and Irankunda is much younger and much better.
Ok thank you

I tried to leave it there. But you kept replying.

Maybe we both just like the last word. So I will just bow out here.

We just know how to develop talent :) .

At least it makes up for SA's inability to produce quality cricketers (Head being an exception to that rule).

It's amazing just how many talents United churn out. There really should be a second team to give more game time to these kids.

Salary dropped to 2k / month. Ouch. Surely a termination is best for both parties. Juve are lucky they got him on a freebie.

He’s not 4 years old lol. He can actually kick a ball 25 yards.

It was a great free kick but age has nothing to do with it. It comes down to ability and talent.
You don't think it's impressive a 17 year old - Australian - has joined one of the biggest clubs in the world?

And there are literally thousands of players with ability and talent, so why just him?

Man City just forked out $2.5M for a 15yo - a transfer record - who can’t join for another 18 months.

So, Irankunda, meh. Too old.

He's alright, just a lot of competition with Openda and Sesko there.
Quite the fall from grace. His first Leipzig stint suggested he was on a trajectory to becoming world class then we ruined him. Havertz and Werner were incredibly disappointing signings.

Can’t really blame the Farmersliga though. From a “big six” perspective, you look at guys like de Bruyne, Gundogan, Firmino, Sane, Haaland, Son and Aubameyang who all kicked on. City and Pool are excellent at identifying/developing talent. Arsenal and Spurs are not too far behind.

Then on the other end of the spectrum, you have guys like Sancho, Havertz, Werner, Mkhitaryan and Pulisic. No surprise Man United and Chelsea are the common denominators. Both clubs have a ratio of 1 hit to about 10 flops.
