yeah I read the same too. Feyenoord hasn't confirmed it yet though but in all likelihood, we probably will sell Smoli to either Dortmund or HSV. I guess Dortmund need to sell too before buying Ebi but if there was a club where he'd go to, it'd be Dortmund where he's really appreciated by Van Marwijk (unlike Gullit). I'll be happy for the boy too if he finds happiness too footballingwise since he's never let Feyenoord down either.

According to the NOS, Dortmund has officially signed Ebi Smolarek. It seems we'll be receiving around 1 million euro's for him.

I wish Ebi all the best, another youthproduct sold for peanuts, but hey at least he didn't go on another bosman.

I guess it was coming with Gullit chosing for Castelen and also de Ceulaer.
Personally I don't think there's too much between SMolarek and Castelen. THe last one probably has more explosive pace but other than that they've got more or less the same game.

Anyways I wish Ebi all the best and hope Bert van Marwijk ( :proud: ) will continue to do as well as possible with the resources he has.

Oh well.. actually when was the last time we've actually had a youth product who's really broken through, been a regular and been appreciated by the clubs management? I think we'll have to go back as far as Giovanni van Bronckhorst in the mid to late 90s. Says 'nuff

I actually long for good ol' Bert sometimes, but then I think back to his 11-man uber alles approach and I quickly snap out of it.

Snoyl and Zuiverloon, they're my hope now, I'd like for a midfielder to break through, but who, Magrao perhaps? If Gullit had a clue about coaching he'd bring in some of our more talented youngsters now, since 4th place is secured and we won't be climbing the table anymore. In other words, we have nothing to lose.

As you may have noticed, 5 goals in 7 games for Ebi so far.

He did really well before his injury but it was downright depressing to see him play after he returned. I couldn't care less when he left.

It seems like we have lost two talents (Ebi and Leo) by injuries. At least I'm glad he's doing well for Dortmund again but that's a 'schrale troost'. :frownani:

I think Smolarek still some of the puinhoop of the Baan era.
I'm sorry but you think we can blame Baan for offering him a contract ?

Like I said, Smolarek was one of the brightest talents within the organization.

True, seems like he's playing in the middle at Dortmund and looking at him playing now, despite many of his goals coming from rebounds and tap-ins, he definitely doesn't seem any lesser than Buffel was with us(now what's happened to him?! :wth: )

Dude, I remember Smolarek getting a couple of fair go's on the right for Feyenoord. And he only played medriocre to poor(matig tot slecht). Now he's suddenly flourishing and you're saying that you knew all a long he was an unpolished diamond? he only showed that for an absolute fraction of a second at Feyenoord, but never really anything special. vdGun now also has a contract at Dortmund. But'll always be the player who couldn't cut it at a consitent level for Ajax.

I'm not even going to bother to respond to so much misinformation and nonsense.

Don't share your opinion if you know nothing about it.

He's getting Kezmanlike and if he continues doing so, I bet you'll see him got for 8 or 9m before too long :( he's got an ideal team now to do well with too as Dortmund play a lot on the counter from what I heard. Ideal for a now razorsharp small player like Ebi.

Smolarek macht gegen Berlin den Unterschied



2 goals yesterday making it 11 goals in 13 games for the polnische WM-Bomber :shades:
First one was from a long ball from Klinge where he scored after first hitting Fiedler, the Hertha goalie and the 2nd one was a header from a Rosicky freekick near the corner flag.

Also good to see Bert v Marwijk too playing 4-3-3 with Buckley and Odonkor on the wings in the Bundesliga. We can be proud of the guys. Dortmunds average age yesterday was 23 I heard, also the youngest in the whole Bundesliga and 5 of the players on their bench hadn't played a game for them yet in the Bundesliga! yet they're 7th and contenders for a UEFA cup spot with a bit of luck.

Your old boy Pantelic btw looked a skillful player but a bit of an Eijkelkamp in his finishing yesterday. Didn't really like him.

Smolarek: 'Feyenoord was, is, blijft mijn club'

6/12/2005 23:59

Tot veler verbazing prijkt hij op de tweede plaats van de topscorersranglijst van de Bundesliga. Hij zelf niet. 'Ik wist het', zegt Ebi Smolarek in de nieuwe Voetbal International. 'Maar ik heb het nooit kunnen laten zien.'
De huidige aanvaller van Borussia Dortmund wijst daarbij vooral naar Feyenoord, de club waaraan hij nog altijd zeer gehecht is, maar ook de club waar hij amper aan spelen toe kwam. 'Feyenoord was, is en blijft mijn club en ik wilde maar één ding: daar voetballen en nergens anders.'

'Waar ik niet om kan lachen is dat ik daar nu niet speel. Dat doet me ontzettend veel pijn. Ik was daar nog lang niet klaar. Natuurlijk sta ik nu in het Poolse elftal, ga ik straks naar het WK en ben ik tweede op de topscorerslijst van de Bundesliga. Maar mijn keuze was het niet.'

In VI nummer 49 vertelt Smolarek uitgebreid over zijn liefde voor Feyenoord en wat er zijn inziens de laatste jaren misging, en over zijn huidige status in Duitsland. Klik hier voorde inhoud van VI nummer 49.


:proud:

Why did ever let him go? He has heart and loves the club, this is the type of player that belongs in Rotterdam and now he's tearing up the Bundesliga.
