But they aren't exactly 16/17 years old... I can't think of any 16/17 years olds outside the top 3... Ajax has Ryan Babel who is supposed to become a great striker, but we'll see what happens...South_Melbourne said:My question should have been a non-Ajax/PSV/Feyenoord player. Is there a 16/17 year old which is sposped to be the next big thing?
I know of Frank Demounge (NEC), Kolk (Heerenveen), David Mendes da Silva (Sparta).
Why would it be difficult? Oranje does not have a real playmaker who leads the team out on the pitch. Van Persie with all his creativity is a real authentical playmaker. There are not many competitors for the same position at the moment.Abominus said:van persie has done well in the latter stages of the first-half of the season, but not extremely well. i think maybe some of you might be getting to influenced by this "it going to be van persie's jaar" a lot of the media is talking and writing about.
i think he misses the speed and the early and decent cross to become a world-class left-winger, and he continually says his natural place lies in the centre of midfield. if it indeed does, and he can excel on that position at feyenoord, it's still going to be difficult for him to make it into the dutch team.
At Feyenoord it probably is Richard Breinburg, a young defender currently playing in our youth. He should make his debut soon for the first teamSouth_Melbourne said:Robin van Persie is a very good player in the VDV,Snedjer, Robben class.

I'm not too sure either but he's been getting good reviews in Feyenoord fanzines/ propaganda :howler: They say he's got leadership qualities too but I'll have to see him with my own eyes before really judging him.chivu said:Are you sure that he won't end up like guys as Loovens and Sprockel. I mean: the fact that he has been added to the squad doesn't mean straight away that he's quality too. Especially if you look at the quality of the oldies available.
in 2006 you want to play with 31-year old Makaay and leave Kluivert on the bench in his prime :rollani:Prince-O said:Why would it be difficult?

IMO in 2006 this should be the midfield and the attack:
In 2006 Kluivert is 30, but of course there is a huge generation gap between someone who is 30 and someone who is 31.Abominus said:in 2006 you want to play with 31-year old Makaay and leave Kluivert on the bench in his prime :rollani:
What has van Persie shown as number 10 so far???? hardly nothing, he played a few good matches in meaningless pre-season games on that position and in the Amstel Cup last season I believe. Since then, he's always played on the left, wheter it be left-wing or half. He should first prove himself on this position for Feyenoord before he can think of Oranje in any position. Also, van der Vaart and Sneijder are already established internationals, so van Persie isn't just gonna walk in and take their position in the Dutch team.
About Sprockel and Loovens. In my mind, they are 100% net-niet spelers. I seriously can't see them ever playing in the heart of Feyenoord, let alone the Dutch team.
