    Brann had conceded 4 goals in 14 games before this game. Håland shows up and scores 4 (!) within the first 22 minutes.

    Yeah, maybe the scouts being there made him step it up a notch

    Talk about deliver when it matters. Impressive.

    Maybe a new Norwegian star to follow. Interesting.

    I know that caftards often scoff at the idea of a player who relies on his strength. But if this kid can do it in Norway, I'd imagine he can do it anywhere. Those Scandis can be pretty big themselves.

    It does if you're only talking about physicality. As to the rest of his game, I have no idea.

    You have to use your physicality correctly though. Players are also quicker and stronger in England.

    Left footed.

    Hope he stays. I remember Solskjaer, when coaching King, talking about how we loved to mould young strikers that have the abilities he never could have.

    We do have a tradition of signing players who score four goals in a game in the Norwegian league. Diouf was signed immediately after if I remember correctly.

    This isn't going to end well if he's Alf's son and Utd are interested.

    Because they are both Norwegian? That’s the absolute laziest comparison you will ever see.

    If he were physically bossing it in the J-League, I'd agree.

    But he's only 17, and he's doing it in the Norwegian league. The jump in size and strength isn't that big, judging by the players I've seen come over from Scandinavia in the past.

    He has an even more punchable face than his dad.

    Anyway, I don't think 4 goals in this game is the clincher. The league is pretty rubbish. But his strength is pretty mean for a teenager, and if you add his exploits for the U-19s, qualifying for this summer's Euros, it's quite clear he has a decent chance of a good career, given the right club.

    Ødegaard was always a product of hype, it was quite evident at the time.

    No such hype around this Håland.

    Does Roy Keane have any family members in our academy system?

    Best to keep them apart if so, the article states he scores 'hate tricks'...

    I can't post videos yet, but there's one of him on YouTube called "Braut Håland 2018 welcome to Juventus", which someone should add to this thread - the kid clearly has excellent technique, and a classic "wand of a left foot", on top of his big frame. He seems like he has a good level of confidence as well. I rarely get quickly carried away purely based on YouTube vids, yet alone ones of players from poor leagues, but I'm gonna stick my neck out and say this kid will have a very good career at the top level. Sign him up.

    By that logic Altidore absolutely rag dolling MLS and Eredevisie defenders means he can do it in England too because MLS defenders are big and strong. We obviously know this isn't true though.

    Sign him up - but leave him with Ole for another year or two at least.

    Would like this kind of signing as a back up to Lukaku. No real pressure to perform as he’s second fiddle, another option on the bench and potential to improve

    Altidore physically bullied defenders during his time in the Prem. Just because he didn't perform well doesn't mean he lost his physical attributes and was unable to shove defenders around.

    I'm sorry but that just makes no sense.
    You want a very talented kid to come sit on our bench, playing second fiddle to one of the best strikers on the planet during what are the most important years in his development?
    If we sign him, he's either going straight into the under 18/21 or we are loaning him, no way are we going to make him / is he going to be OK with sitting on the bench at such a tender age.
    If we want a backup to Lukaku, we should try and buy someone like Mandzukic

    Jesus, calm down.

    He’s 17, there’s no reason he can’t play for the youth teams as well. What 17 year olds do you know of who are exclusively a starter for a first team?

    Why would mandzukic want to sit on the bench to, in your words, “one of the best strikers on the planet”? Lukaku hardly ever gets dropped.
