Yeah, I think it's a transition not with the players but finances.
Few years ago Bucaresti dominated romanian football and even a club like Craiova went under, and FC National.
Then you look at the 2 euro vase thing, and 3 uefa cup, 2 champs league.
Our League is getting richer owners, country is getting more attention for our football.
Football sponsers are putting out more cash, because it's the biggest market in romania arguably.
Our football now is in a transition to think " How do we spend this money" right now our clubs don't know what to do with the money, and CFR got lucky and picked some interesting players, and LUCKY squad that somewhat came together ( no doubt bought some games ).
Even our liga.2. teams, 4/5 of them could dish out 1M on transfers now.
I think this is positive, and having clubs like uniera or brasov in europe is actualy exciting and in a positive direction because they will get richer, and help our overall league.
last season we were at a point where we were going to either turn into a exporting league, or a importing league.
it's nice to see a importing league happening because the exporting wouldn't do our clubs well either than financual where you know romanian owners would pocket it and call it a day.
Almost every LIGA 1 side can dish out 500k for a player if they wanted, which a few years ago was not the case.
CFR,Rapid,Steaua,Dinamo,Craiova,POLI,Gloria,Otelul all can dish out nice cash now, and it started with the "Otelul money for results" thing in the EURO VASE/UEFA CUP.
I love what is happening, and the more teams that go into europe, the more competitive and wealthier, nevermind serious our clubs will get.
Having none of the bucaresti sides in it is in our best interest to be honest because clubs like Uniera,Vaslui,CFR,BRASOV,GLORIA will gain international experience and a name for themselves in europe, ( gloria already did along with otelul )
People will gain interest, europe will want to watch romanian football for our clubs and players..
I don't remember how many people were captivated v A.Madrid the GK for Gloria, or how many people loved watching Paraschiv.
This is going to be benificial in a few years to us being a big league in europe, and join in with Italy,Spain,Germany,England,France.
I love this, and I would love to see any other clubs in europe.
