He is ecstatic, I'm not. It is still pending medicals but that shouldn't cause any problems. It is a short term rental job to much higher level league to cover the injured player, approximately 6 to 8 weeks and will take difficult child very close to transfer deadline, so if he can't line up the next gig while still there, he may end up to their junior team for the rest of the season. While that would not be the right competitive level for difficult child, it would not be the end of the world either. This will be impressive reference for difficult child and he is paid well, much better for these two months than the worth of his whole season contract. The team that sold him is paid even better. And when the team has not done that well as the whole, selling difficult child who was on the one year deal and doing excellent was something we knew could happen. And I'm sure him being a total pain in the butt lately made parting ways even easier for them. As I said, difficult child is really happy about it, but I'm not. I see it as difficult child getting a Get out of Jail Free-card after painting himself in the corner all by himself. Not good for him. Neither do I like the fact that he will have three different teams for this season. He is way too young to become a hired gun or a journeyman. That is emotionally tough job even for seasoned pro, 20-year-old kid should have no business into that. Especially 20-year-old kid with social issues. And the whole attitude and framework you have to adapt to do that is basically the opposite of what difficult child should be learning. He should learn to bond and attach and be a good team player. Being a rental teaches him to be cynical, not to trust anyone, not to attach or bond and always put himself first. But yeah, he is happy, it could be a great opportunity if he can do well, coaches of the new team do know what they get in difficult child (one of the coaches has been coaching difficult child in developmental program during earlier years and certainly know his reputation) and the team is more international so the main operational language is English that will make it little easier for difficult child. Of course he is back to being the runt and almost no one close to his age around, but it is not like he could had made any friends in two months anyway. I try, but I have hard time being happy for him.
