But you still got Boyd having more success than Wooten right?


Who knows? Boyd is certainly more talked about because he earned US caps

But both Wooten and Boyd played in same division of Regionalliga last year, Wooten had better numbers than Boyd. Wooten also earned Bundesliga minutes last year and looked good.

Wooten is also more likely begin the season as a starter for his club. Right now, Wooten has an advantage over Boyd but it is far from clear who will be better over the long run. Nobody knows.

How does Rapid Vienna compare to Kaiserslautern this year? Top club in Austria versus 2nd tier club in Germany. Are they on the same level?

While Wootens resume says he might have the advantage over Boyd at the moment, you cant help but wonder what if Boyd were part of a bottom tier team last year. Would he of earned some first team minutes? I always thought being able to train with the Bundesliga champs last year, followed by games with the reserves, had to help Boyd's cause.

I believe it did. I actually regard both these players as on pretty equal planes right now. I know nothing about Rapid Vienna but Lautern were terrible last season until right around the time Wooten came. Don't know if it was solely him (unlikely), but he certainly helped along with some odd realization by the team that they could win games. Maybe because the pressure was off since they knew they were going down. Anyways, the levels are probably close. R.V. might be somewhat better I'm inclined to think, but Lautern will probably bounce right back into the top flight with a revamped team that will probably/hopefully include Wooten.

Rapid Vienna is better than FCK right now but I also think Wooten is more likely to start at the beginning of the season at FCK than Boyd is at RV.

It is just wide open right now between those two but it one key story to follow.

Then you also have to keep an eye on Bijev and Kiesewetter who are also good prospects.

In which parallel universe is the top division in Austria better or on par with a BL team? Even a crappy relegated one?

That's madness.

Because I remember you saying that Boyd looks better than Wooten from the U23 level to the senior team level, but I agree who knows maybe both will be really successful players.

I think it will be disappointing if Boyd isn't a started for Vienna because that league isn't that good, but I think he will be a starter hopefully he can score 15+ goals for the season so he can get interest from Bundesliga clubs.

Wooten finally got his first start for Sandhausen. According to what I'm seeing on kicker.de he's out on the wing.

Sandhausen has been positively disastrous lately, so it was inevitable that the coach would eventually try something new.

Hopefully that logic will get Gyau playing time too. St Pauli is horrendous.

I suspect Wooten's start today was more of a roll of the dice - one that went well.

Pauli has a new coach and now a 2-week break until their next game, so they have some time to completely reconfigure in a more patient & deliberate manner.

In any case, yeah, hopefully the end result (Gyau playing) will be the same.
