crazy transfer window, Leicester and Silva is one, children in
Norway is another

To see Adrien Silva
stopped because of 14 seconds, is of course strange, but the crazy
transfer window have also stopped players down to the age of 13 to
swop clubs because of this idiotic system
The transfer window is a problem and it makes
this game more and more idiotic. The window is meant to be one that
shall stop players from moving all the time during a season, and
keep other clubs from disturbing your players.
The intentions are good, but something must be done with this window

documented conflicts in Vestfold and Hordaland. One was with a
player who left a club who falled and had no players left to
continue playing, and the other one was with a boy moving from
Both players had to wait to the next season to play, despite getting
the green light from the clubs involved.
The situation is the total opposite if one of the clubs involved are
reluctant to the move. Then no transfer should appear.
But in the world of "good intentions" there can be unbelievable
results, and people without the knowledge of "common sense" makes
