Yes, look what happened last time we went Norwegian. Henning Berg, Ronny Johnsen and Ole Solskjær. Our results really suffered in that period.We have to stop this Norway-thing right away, please. Yes there is Håland and Ødegaard, all the other players in history are not. If Dan James played in the Norwegian top division he would look like a hybrid between Usain Bolt and vintage Messi for reference. Hauge is not somebody we should focus on, not now, probably never. His mate Evjen played for Bodø and looked equally impressive before his big move, he is now tucked away at AZ’s youth team. Aim higher, this is Man Utd, we have forgotten that for some reason.... look at talents where the frequency for greatness is higher
i assume you are Norwegian since you have watched Håkon Evjen and Jens Petter Hauge and compared them?
I remember watching Solskjær as a 22 year old for Molde. He was brilliant, and so was his two partners in crime, Arild Stavrum and Ole Sundgot.There were discussions which one of them were best. Stavrum eventually reached the lofty heights of Aberdeen, and Sundgot remained in the Norwegian league and was transitioned to a full back for Lyn.
It’s hard to judge such stuff, but good scouts have an edge over us who thought that Arild Stavrum would have the best carreer. Cheap players also come with smaller risk. United have scouts travelling all over the globe, so I’m not sure why you would want them to avoid Norway in particular.
