    Is Molde in the first division? If so, that's great news for Gatt. And all at the age of 19, right?

    Re: Josh Gatt transfers to Norway

    Wow. This is quite a rise by the kid- best of luck to him and I hope all the connections of his new coach help him move up even more in the future. I wonder how Molde's (quite a few puns there for thread titles if anyone wants to take a crack) schedule lines up with the U-20 qualifying and tournement this summer. They play summer ball there, right? I'd think this move rules out Josh for this summer. That's too bad for Rongen and the U-20s, but good in the larger sense that Josh will hopefully be getting first team minutes in Norway instead of playing in a youth tournement.

    Cheers, and GOOD LUCK JOSH!

    Yes, Molde is in the first division and from what I've heard it sounds like he'll be getting some decent playing time to start out. An Under 20 American actually making some noise in a first division league in Europe, that would be something, we'll just have to wait and see.

    I doubt this rules him out for the U-20 World Cup. Scandinavian teams understand how important the tournament is for their players exposure. Ole Gunnar is probably looking to develop him through this season for next. He's still quite young for a professional. If Gatt stayed with Altach he was going to miss qualifying to begin with.

    Ole was very respected for United's reserve team and helped developed a lot of youth. Couldn't think of a better jump to make. Well done!

    Crazy that Solskjaer is 37, he still looks like he did when he got to Man U plus a few pounds.

    Having a great coach who speaks English should make for a much easier transition for the boy. Was this Ole's first signing?

    He doesn't turn 20 until late August, so it's even better. Really happy for this guy though. He's really taken his opportunity well, to date.

    And about the 600th fastest teenager in California. :p



    Seriously though, this is a great story. This kid had the stones to go pro straight out of high school and now he's getting a chance in a respectable league. Big ups to Josh Gatt. I hope he dominates in Norway and gets capped by Bob soon.
