    How did he do? Listed as one of their best performers stats-wise

    Relaxed on the ball, too much at times. Not the best passer when moving... Still, being so big and have that mobility and strength in duels.... VVD-esque. If he goes to Sevilla for two seasons and improves his ability on the ball, then he could become quite imposing.

    His name sounds like when you fart and sneeze at the same time

    Right but he plays as a CDM not a CB correct? Wouldn't he be better off as a CB if he's VVD-esque?

    Who was last Norway player who was medium to World class in european leagues, Carew?

    Guess Josh King could eventually step up to that sort of level as he's improved a lot at Bournemouth in last two seasons.

    His physique is VVD-esque. I tend to have the same sentiment, and that he might be best at CB, unless he is able to improve his ability on the ball somewhat.

    If he's as good as people say he is it's surprising we haven't even been linked. Solskjaer signed most of the Norwegian national team while he was at Cardiff, you'd think he'd be all over it.

    That worked well. I couldn't move for posts on various forums that likes of Mats Daehli and Inge Berget were future great players, neither did anything even in championship for Cardiff.

    Yeah, that's what I'd be wary of. I've seen a little bit of Berge and he looks quite good but it's difficult to assess his true level when he's mostly playing against lower level opposition.

    We're desperate for a Matic replacement though and he looks like he could be the closest thing to it.

    Looking over my shoulder.
    Hopefully he has learnt. Norwegian footballers are mostly well below par for the PL.

    He would not replace Matic. If we buy him, we should loan him out to Spain for a season. He needs to improve on the ball, and La Liga is the best league for technical developement. If he is able to improve on the ball, then he would be good enough to demand a starting spot for a top 4 team in the EPL.

    The best "cheap" option as a replacement for Matic would be Kalvin Phillips at Leeds imo.

    We should judge quality. Not nationality. But yeah, right now OGS cant afford to buy norwegian players due to the poor PR and people/medias bias to judge players based on stereotype.

    This season should be a reminder to something Ferguson teached us; how far attitude can take the next best talents if they are used correct in a good team (Robertson, Henderson, Winjaldum, Matip among others).

    Right now, Norway have three talents that I would argue is special in a scandinavian context (but probably below that in an english context). I would argue that they are better and probably more talented than King and Hangeland was at the same age. I’m talking about Sander Berge, Kristoffer Ajer and Martin Odegaard. What sets them apart is their attitude.

    I’m not that familiar with Berge, but Ajer and Odegaard have the approach and attitude of one of those norwegian cross-county skiers that you in the UK only hear about during the winter olympics. They are professional, down to earth, intelligent and have great attitude in general. The type of personality that Ferguson loved to have in his squad and that Klopp also appear to embrace.

    They are not ready now, but I would not be surprised to see them reach very far when they reach 24-25.

    Wanted him at Spurs for awhile.

    Hope he goes to Brighton just to see how he does in the Prem.

    DM. Hope he comes to the prem. High potential and should be able to adjust. Tall, fast and strong, so the speed of the play will be the biggest change for him. Have high hopes for him,

    At the moment he's a bit too similar to McT imo.

    That isn´t really a statement of quality to be fair.

    He's probably twice the player Fred is, and would have cost like 20m.

    Will believe it if it happens. Over the summer he was linked with a move to so many clubs and in the end the only concrete offer seemed to be from Sheffield United.

    Florentina is a building an interesting team. Pulgar is already a hit and Berge to partner him with Chiesa and Ribery.

    Odegaard is 2nd and Berge 3rd IMO.
