Alright, guys, let's keep it civil. No need for insults or animosity.
Good points.I wonder if it says more about the players themselves then the league, or to the earlier point something doesn’t translate for our guys moving into that league

That works sometimes and then it doesn't. Look at a guy like Robert Muric. Started his career at Jong Ajax, played at Braga reserves and quick pit stop in Serie B and while he's turned into one of the better players in the HNL... he's back domestically, when his ceiling was a lot higher. Same applies to Balic. Started at Udinese, which is Serie A but they're traditionally a mid-table club with no pressure and are known to help youngsters grow. He bounces around on a few loans in Serie B, Slovak League and Dutch League and now he's a starter in the Slovak Leaguw when again, ceiling way higher than that for him.If I’m a young player I’d rather go to a Portuguese, Dutch or a Dinamo type place. A place that puts a premium on youth fosters the development and makes money off of that. They’re incentivized and that is their model. I think more people are seeing he value of that approach for their career. Look at Olmo now? Would he even be in a top 5 league if he were with the Barcelona youth? I’m not sure? My little guy does well I will advise him good
Now officialBorevkovic will be going to Vitória de Guimarães not Braga.
Haven't really seen anything of it, problem is CSKA is asking alot of money for Vlasic so the options are limited (though most English clubs are probably the only ones who could afford him), for example Betis the latest rumor only recently are signing players for 20m euros and thats because they have sold wellThink anything will come of the Everton rumors, now that Rafa is over there?
Me neither mate!Vrslajko being offered a 3 year deal with Fenerbache. I think something like this would be a good move for him. He needs to play and Fener is at a pretty good level in a decent league. Also has interest from a few Serie A teams. I haven’t given up on Sime
We're also talking about Leeds United who is leading the race for him, plus Inter and Milan.CSKA rejected a 10-15m bid from Brentford for Vlasic, Milan is still an option but CSKA are asking for at least 30m; very likely he goes there on some sort of loan w/option to buy deal
Wolfsburg are open to selling Brekalo, Atletico showing some interest
Roko Simic officially signed for Salzburg, he will play for their feeder team Liefering in the Austrian 2nd tier
