2nd class citizens …

Filed under: Football — notyalcsdrawkcab @ 11:15 am

Got to thinking after Pani Nikas didnt get offered a contract by CCM (and no-one else raced in to sign him either) …

It seems a strange thing, to win an award like NYL player of the year, but then not be able to get a senior contract. 

Seems to me that our younger talent is in several tiers. 

Top tier – In Europe, in a senior squad.

Next – In Europe, in a youth / reserves squad. 

Next – In the A-league, with a senior contract. 

Next – In the NYL, with a senior contract.

Next – In the NYL, with no senior contract. 

Guess that makes Pani a 5th class citizen?  (No disrespect intended – he could go onto a solid career).   

Interestingly, CCM signed 16 year old Mustafa Amini a couple of months ago to a senior contract.
