Ramin Musayev was elected a chairman of the Professional Football League (PFL) and he already announced that starting from this season all youth teams will form a new separate championship. That is all these Neftchi-2, Inter-2, Baku-2, Khazar-2 and others will compete in a tournament separate from the 1st League. That will also allow to reorganize 1st League format.

And also starting from 2009-2010 season it will be mandatory for all clubs to have their own stadium that meet UEFA requirements.

20K is a lot lot of green considering how many legionaries will play in PL. I hope they will spent at list half of this amount on developing youngster, build & support of football schools and stadiums specially in the regions.
Disturbing fact I noticed this week is we already have 2-3 naturalized players in out U17!!! I hope this isn't the way the german development style works?!

Every year we go through this, now "Masalli" notified AFFA they will not participate in championship. Apparently club doesn't have enough finances to support doubles and/or youngsters. sad story of azeri football!
P.S. «NBС» (Сальяны) potential replacement.

Masalli isn't even an independent club! They are the farm club of Khazar and with new AFFA ruling Khazar suddenly realized that beside keeping its own teams they will also have to support 3 Masalli teams! (main, second team and youth), so obviously the decision was made to can this farm club idea. It was a very natural decision :)

But one thing is true is that we need to cut back number of teams in the Premier League - 12, I think, is the optimal number of teams. And I even know which teams have no place in Premier League - it is MOIK and Bakili.

I know about relationship between Khazar and RIP Masalli my problem is it became so easy to drop ateam it's not even funny. There is no consistency in playing format or number of participants in our league for the long time. We constantly changing rules of the game and don't tell it's not affected development of football in general. Look for yourself, for the last couple of years we change limit and fee on legionaries several times, lost several clubs, applying rule change in very short period which doesn't give clubs an opportunity to adjust, I'm talking about mandatory stadiums for clubs, junior teams and even doubles. I'm not a big proponent of cutting back number of teams right now. All we gonna have is 30-40 unemployed players who will clog market and prevent new players of coming in.
Finally I don't know about Bakili but MOIK right now playing poison pill role, look how many player they plan to call on from other clubs:
(Раиль Меликов («Нефтчи»), Эльмар Бахшиев, Рахид Амиргулиев, Рашад Абдуллаев, Руслан Поладов, Кямран Агаев («Хазар-Лянкяран»), Рашад Керимов, Вугар Надиров, Намик Алиев («Карван»), Рамиль Саядов, Рустам Мамедов («Симург»), Фархад Велиев, Рауф Алиев, Нодар Мамедов («Карабах»), Эльнур Абдуллаев («Бакы»).
I don't know how much good is gonna do to MOIK but it definitely will has negative effect on other clubs!

What about "Simurq" now, are they gonna stay or will follow "Masalli" example?
On top of that, as usual, "Turan" having financial problem too, championship starts 1 month from today but club didn't even started training camp yet!

Situation with Simurg is a bit different. Even though they've started as farm club, they recently have gained some independence, and they built their own stadium and everything. But again, I wouldn't be surprised if they also pull out of the championship.
