In the 90s Rosenborg dominated Norwegian club football, giving many top European clubs serious problems at Lerkendal. Most famously they eliminated AC Milan in 1997.

Football has changed a lot since then which makes me doubt, sadly, that we could see Bodo replicate their success. As soon as Jens Petter Hauge showed a moment of his quality, he was plucked away by Milan. He's now at Eintracht Frankfurt.

I assume other parts of their squad will be picked off sooner rather than later.

But I think football would be more interesting if we had clubs from a greater variety of leagues able to retain their top talent.

I'm also encouraged by the Dutch clubs making a comeback.

Do not be exaggeratedly encouraged, you know the English clubs first of all tend to buy all the talent they can find in their neighbouring leagues.
And even a club like Sampdoria has two Norwegian players!

Norway are the scandic kings of picturesque towns with their green valleys and mountain ranges.

Are you kidding? I would not go to Norway even if I had travel and hotel paid. There are also random Neonazis who could shoot me just for not looking like a Norwegian Neonazi.

yeah, but it looks like a country filled with freaks (such as the ones who burnt down churches, you know I can hardly accept that! ;) ) and women can't be better. I'm sorry for the ones who are not, as they easily make the end of the sacrificial lamb (see Utoya).
