But in the end the NT-coach can only work with the players he has. I put Dufer and Blondel in there, because well every half-decent coach would line those 2 up at club level. More importantly are the youngsters. If they don't get enough playing time their development stagnates and they are going to waste. Here lies Belgium problem. For the last 10 years we have had good to very good -21NT. Those players at that age can compete with almost every team in the world of the same age. Still, 3-4 years later they end up being nobodies. Reason? Easy: none of them get a chance at their club, because we (coaches, fans, media) love experience. Every club has one: an average player (Vanderhaeghe, Zetterberg, Clement, Snoeckx,...) with a lot of matches in the 1e division who blocks youngsters with an incredible potential.
As a result you players as Legear, Yulu-Matondo, Faris Haroon (seriously Broos what an arse are you!!!),... who are at the point of going to waste. You can have Cruyff himself as our coach of our NT, it wouldn't make that much difference.
We can bomb the world to pieces, but we can't bomb it into peace!
