How many players from your team...

Post by Fey on Fri Dec 09, 2011 1:30 pm

are homegrown?

For Feyenoord

------------------------------Mulder(Lamprou)-----------

Leerdam(Swerts, D.Fernandez)-----Vlaar(Schenkeveld)---De Vrij(Martins Indi)----Nelom(Rammstein)


El Ahmadi(van Haaren)-----------Clasie(Mokotjo)---------------Bakkal(Isoufi)

Schaken(Biseswar)--------------Guidetti(Achahbar, G.Fernandez,Elvis)------Cabral(Cisse)

25 players out of which 18 are from our youth academy.

Granted it's not a CL winning team, but impressive nontheless. Doubt even the German teams have this. Or Barca for that matter.

I like this Fey. Ale

Sadly our canteranos are almost non existent.

From 24 we only have 5 homegrown players: Iker Casillas, Antonio Adan, Alvaro Arbeloa, Esteban Granero, and Jose Maria Callejon.

VV/Pinto

Alves/Adriano--Pique/Fontas--Masch/Puyol---Abidal/Maxwell

--------------------Busquets/Keita

------------Xavi/thiago----------Cesc/Iniesta

---Afellay/Pedro--------Messi/Sanchez---Cuenca/Villa

9/22, 11 if we include Pique and cesc, can't be bothered with the debate so I left them out
Cuenca is effectively apart of the first team will be promoted officially in January

I think Pique is yours. He was from 10 to 17 in your youth teams. I think he is even a more legitimate 'canterano' than someone like Busquets or Puyol who didn't even arrive in Barcelona until 17 or 18 (although I will let you count them as well).

PS. I think Cesc is yours but it's not a clear one! Wink

Surely Barca has more, what about all those kids who played those Bulgarians the other day?

That's what I hate about Madrid, why buy a midfielder when you have Canales, or Altintop when you have a Callejon.

Krul(Harper, Forster)
Simpson(Santon)
Taylor(Perch)
Coloccini(Williamson)
R.Taylor(Ferguson)
Obertan(Abeid)
Cabaye(Gosling)
Tiote(Guthrie)
Gutierrez(Marvaeux)
Ben Arfa(Ameobi2, Lovenkrands)
Ba(Ameobi1, Best)

Krul came to us at 17, which I suppose doesn't count. I'm counting Forster, he is on loan at Celtic, but he is still ours!

Man our squad is thin as fuck. Laughing

With 2 of bartra,montoya or JDS, being promoted next season, it will be 14, one step closer to seeing a Full masia XI in the league or CL, a step closer to seeing 18 of your first team squad being Masia, and step closer to the dream of winning the CL with a Masia XI(this one is way off though)

4 is quite low for us - we regularly had 6 out of 11 last season.

There are another 9 in first team squad or out on loan though.

Of the 1st choice XI - Only Ledley King... however Jake Livermore, Tom Carroll, Andros Townsend, and Harry Kane have all seen good minutes this year.

We sell all our homegrown talents, most of the time on a cheap... Pirlo, Balotelli, Martins, Destro, Bonucci, Santon, etc

However, we do have some new homegrown kids in our squad - Crisetig, Caldirola (I wonder if any Eredivisie fans remember him from Vitesse last season, I would love some feedback), and Obi are the new kids in the squad. And Faraoni+Coutinho will make the grade as "homegrown" in a year or two.

Oh, and 4th choice 39 yr old keeper Orlandoni is also homegrown.

Yeah I remember him, played only a few matches here. One of them was against us though, we won 4-0.

Made an error out of which Luc scored a goal Smile
