If i was you, unless your looking to tryout for Ajax, which has a brilliant youth system, id be looking to find a club in either Italy, Spain or England, because they are the strongest leagues and will give you the most opportunities.

That's true, but he's Dutch, and he's going to be there, not somewhere else.

Also, I have heard that these "great" clubs don't have the most stellar development in young players, which ultimately is what is needed for youth players. Ajax has developed brilliant players though.

The Dutch youth system is all about keeping their native players there and breeding their own players. That is why their youth system is so great. Some of the greatest players of all time have come from this country and system. Also, all the coaches there are really smart and now exactly when you should be traded off to continue your training. They really care about what kind of player you become. Also I am Dutch, and there is no way I would want to live anywhere else. I have already experienced Spain, Italian football is crap in my opinion, and England hasn't produced many good players recently, while Holland has.

They just got relegated. Maybe if they get back into the eredivisie I will think about it.

Right now I am thinkg about either Utrecht, Rotterdam, or Enschede (FC Twente).

I wish I did :(

I am learning, but I can understand pretty well. I write my grandfather in Dutch, but my dad helps me a ton. Also my Dad speaks to me in Dutch and I speak back in English. Do you want to try that? I would love to get some practice in! What is your MSN?

Ik wens je veel geluk met het bereiken van je dromen.(I wish you good luck with realising your dreams).
Dutch is a very difficult language to lurn if it's not your first language.I have no probleme with it because I can speak it since I was a kid but my father had a lot of difficulties learning it and especially the order of the words.
The advise that I can give you is try maybe to go to Dutch forums some times that helped me a lot with my english.

Are you planning on going over for a month or so, getting a trial, and then coming back here and leaving again for good?..., or are you going to just go and live there? I'm interested to know your plan of action.

I don't think you should snub clubs like that, unless you are good enough to play in the Eredivisie. If you first off get accepted into the academy, and then get a first team spot , AND THEN impress better clubs you will get good offers, Theo Walcott played for Southampton 2nd division England and now look where he plays, Arsenal. Playing in the Eredivisie is not as easy as it sounds, watch some of those games in person to compare yourself to those top players to chart your progress.

No I plan on leaving, staying there for 6 months, coming back for a month maybe, then either living there, or my parents might move, because they have already been talking about moving to Holland, and by then my dad would be ready with his business.


Also good point ageorge... I will think about RKC Waalwijk... they had been in the Eredivisie for ages, and it was just last year that they got relegated, they will probably come back up.
