The Samenwerking

FC Twente recently agreed to become a 'feeder team' for Manchester United. Do you think this will benefit them or drain them of their talent?

Do you think these partnerships/feeder teams ideas are helping the Dutch leagues?

I can't remember the last time an English club did anything for any other reason than its own benefit. So I'm gonna have to vote "drain".

There have been some interesting partnerships

Utrecht and Wigan

De Graafschap and Udinese was probably the most interesting partnership I've seen.

PSV and Chelsea was ok though. As long as Twente - Man U is done for the same reason (work permit issues) then I see no problems with it. Fabio to Twente next season?

Lex Immers - Pace & power. Holland's #1 box to box player

Feyenoord forum - the place to talk about this phenomenon

Ronald Koeman "Oranje kan Immers goed gebruiken"

Fred Rutten "Feyenoord heeft Immers nodig"

Van Marwijk over Lex Immers: 'Stille kracht van Feyenoord'

John de Wolf “Dat is nou precies de aanjager, het ’etterbakkie’ in het veld dat Feyenoord in dit soort wedstrijden nodig heeft"

Really only time will tell.

I hope Twente dont lower their ambitions because of it though. We need another solid Dutch team in European Competitions apart from Ajax and PSV.

Any team in the top 6 that becomes a feeder team should really go and play in busy traffic unless they have financial problems.
