    He looks 6'1 to me. I believe wikipedia had him listed as 5'11 prior to his move to Bremen. Probably grew a bit after the u-20 championship.

    It seems that what the trainer has been saying in the press and what Josh says here has been consistent. That, it was made clear from the beginning he'd be integrated into the first team slowly.

    Kicker had an interview with Sargent on Jan 5, 2019 (seems to be the same interview as the video clips, with some extra details in the Kicker article).

    http://www.kicker.de/news/fussball/...ereit-fuer-die-bundesliga.html#omsearchresult

    Here are some highlights of the Kicker article (google can translate the rest):

    Sargent says Pizarro is like a father to him, not a strict one, more like a relaxed dad. He talks about the little things that Pizarro has helped him with, like how much to turn in a one-on-one situation, how to think fast etc.

    About his first goal: he says he knocked it in for fear of a defender getting it to it. But, right away he noticed it would have gone in and apoligized immediately to Martins. With that goal, it was like a dream come true for Sargent.

    He's looking forward to the playing for the new US coach Beerholder.

    He likes Harry Kane a lot.

    He played a lot of different sports as a kid and really didn't start to focus exclusively on soccer until he was about 14 or 15. He got his strong legs from playing all those different sports (he jokes).

    According to Kicker, Sargent went the full 90 and choked on a big chance in the 50th minute. Game ended up 2:2. Both goals by Kruse.

    "A nervous Sargent missed after a pass by Klaassen (50')" is how they put it. Sargent only one out of three players to go the full 90. If Kicker graded friendlies, they'd have given him a 5,0 probably. They're tough on our guys.

    @zlebmada twitter has some good GIFS

    he did a great job of holding his run, decent first touch- just not the greatest finish. also had a few good defensive actions that immediately led to transition opportunities

    I tend to interpret and not translate. Being nervous and missing a chance is pretty much choking. :)

    That being said, I was only relaying what was in the article. I did not see the game at all.

    I'm watching his last game in FB and they played him as a right forward in a 4-3-3. He needs to play more center to his strength.

    There are two possible exits this winter that are relevant for Josh Sargent: Ole Käuper was loaned to Erzgebirge Aue and Florian Kainz is about to be transferred to Cologne. Both were competitors for the match day roster and Kainz was more or less directly competing with Sargent for one of the three forward positions in Werder‘s tactical system. However, Sargent will have new competition in Fin Bartels who will return from injury in a couple of weeks. Bartels was a starter on the right wing before a gruesome injury 1.5 years ago but can also play left wing.

    Speaking of starting, kicker magazine predicts that Sargent will see a couple of starts in the second half of the season but Kohfeldt is quoted in the same article that “he’s not a starter yet and nobody should assume that he will make all 17 games”. Article in German here: http://www.kicker.de/news/fussball/...kel_sargents-naechster-schritt-nach-vorn.html

    Kohfeldt recently mentioned that the two wingers are not supposed to play very wide anyways. That is because Kruse or Osako (who are the two top guys for the central forward role) are supposed to fall back into the midfield often to utilize their playmaking abilities. When that happens, the “wingers” should be available near the box or in the box.

    In reality it’s a bit more complicated because a lot depends on what Kruse decides to do and it also depends on whether the two fullbacks (usually Augustinsson and Selassie) can make runs on the wings.
