I did look it up and I pointed out several first team players to have come out of the academy at OT, still waiting to hear from you what Liverpool and Leeds have produced.

Ajax Academy - Johan Cruijff, Edwin van der Sar, Dennis Bergkamp, national team top scorer Patrick Kluivert, and former national team coach Marco van Basten. Dutch national first-team players Ryan Babel, Wesley Sneijder, Rafael van der Vaart, Maarten Stekelenburg, Eljero Elia, André Ooijer, John Heitinga and Nigel de Jong had also came through the ranks at Ajax and all are now playing for top-flight clubs. Ajax also regularly supplies the Dutch national youth teams with local talent. First team regulars Siem de Jong, Urby Emanuelson and Gregory van der Wiel are former youth internationals who made the successful step up to the senior side. Due to mutual agreements with foreign clubs, the youth academy has also signed foreign players as teenagers before making first team debuts, such as Belgian defensive trio Jan Vertonghen, Toby Alderweireld and Thomas Vermaelen (now with Arsenal) and winger Tom de Mul (now with Sevilla) beat that!

Now City is throwing out some media about Hazard too...saying City is the perfect place for him.

I say let's have a gentleman's agreement between the clubs; whoever wins on Monday gets to bid on Hazard and not have the other team bid (yeah hazard could go elsewhere but those are the two most likely destinations).

What say ye City?
