Citação de: Goncalojbcorreia em Junho 14, 2011, 18:25 pmTemos toda a capacidade para fazer uma grande prova. Posso estar enganado (não sou um espectador muito atento ao futebol formação) mas não me recordo de um grupo de jogadores tão fortes como o que teremos na próxima temporada, em juniores, nos últimos tempos. Um 11 com, por exemplo:Rafael Veloso; Ricardo Esgaio, Tiago Ilori, Eric Dier, Mica; Agostinho Cá, João Mário Eduardo, Mateus Fonseca; Bruma, Betinho, Iuri MedeirosPenso que é muito forte (a defesa então, comparada com anos anteriores, parece-me de betão).A maioria jogadores de segundo ano (como Ricardo Esgaio, Mica, Cá, João Mário, Betinho, jogadores de grande, grande qualidade) mas inserindo-se juniores de primeiro que tenham um largo futuro á frente (Eric Dier, Iuri Medeiros e o próprio Bruma).É um onze fortissimo que para mim só tem uma lacuna: Guarda Redes.Nao vejo qualidade no R.Veloso.Mas nem sempre estes Dreams Teams vencem.Alias basta ver o percurso de metade desta geraçao para perceber isso.SL

Liverpool FC have conformed that they will be competing in the U19′s Champions League tournament in 2011-12.In April we reported the initial plans to take part in the competition but this has now been confirmed following it being sanctioned by UEFA and The FA.LFC youngsters will come up against top players from teams like Barcelona, Inter Milan, PSV, Sporting Lisbon.The competition will run the same format as the Champions League but with only 16 teams taking part. 4 groups of 4 will be drawn and the competition will start in August with the top 2 sides from each group progressing to the quarter finals which start in January.The tournament is the brainchild of ex-pro and former Watford Academy manager Mark Warburton and TV producer Justin Andrews.Warburton said “The Nextgen Series will provide a cognitive learning environment for players to experience how best to cope with the pressures of top-level football.”Clubs taking part are: Barcelona, Inter Milan, Liverpool, Manchester City, Tottenham Hotspur, Aston Villa, Marseille, Sporting Lisbon, Wolfsburg, Molde, PSV, Celtic, FC Basel, Fenerbahce and Rosenborg.
Manchester City will face Barcelona in the headline fixture of a Champions League-style tournament for Under 19s this season.Liverpool, Tottenham and Aston Villa are also in the tournament, dubbed the NextGen Series, which will consist of 16 clubs in four groups. City have also been paired with Celtic and Marseille.After England’s disappointing first-round exit from the Under 21 European Championship, the competition is seen as the ideal platform to improve the quality of opposition for younger players and give them valuable experience of an elite competition.Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea are waiting to come in next season, along with Ajax.The inaugural line-up has been determined by invitation and recommendation, influenced by the quality of each club’s academy. There is one more place to be confirmed.NextGen is the brainchild of former Watford academy manager Mark Warburton and will pit some of the best young sides in Europe against each other home and away in a tournament that will start in August with the knockout stages in January.Sportsmail revealed how the project was being formulated last year when Manchester City played Ajax in a friendly in Amsterdam. City are considered to be major players in the development of this tournament as they increase their profile around the world.All the fixtures are yet to be finalised but it is understood that Villa are in a group with Norway’s Rosenborg and Fenerbahce of Turkey, and City and Barcelona will face Celtic and Marseille.The top two teams in each group will go forward to a finals competition. TV rights are being negotiated and the finals could be staged in Abu Dhabi.Warburton, a former professional footballer who established the Harefield Academy and helped Watford become the first English professional club to combine full-time academic learning and football, pioneered the competition to help prepare promising young players for top-level football.He is now sporting director at League One club Brentford, and said: ‘Apart from the exceptional few who jump straight to the first team, many promising young players graduating from academies were not provided with enough consistent high-quality football challenges.’Although the costs will be high, clubs have jumped at the idea as they look to improve the quality of players graduating from their academies and, crucially, tempt top young players from other clubs with the chance of playing in Europe.Liverpool and Chelsea are among the clubs to have raised concerns about the level of investment in their academies and how it has failed to correlate with the end product.Now they hope this can help bridge the gap in the development of young stars.It is expected that the competition will grow as more heavyweight clubs rush to join in. The early European Cup, launched in 1955-56, also started as a relatively small competition and then mushroomed.
Mas isto vai ser como na champions? Duas Mãos ( Casa - Fora ) e depois 1 jogo na Final ?
isto da receitas?
Alvalade vai receber a "outra" Liga dos Campeões A participação do Sporting na estreia do torneio Next Generation Series - espécie de Liga dos Campeões de sub-19 - poderá ser apoiada pelos adeptos do clube no Estádio José Alvalade, local que deverá acolher os desafios em casa em detrimento das instalações da Academia, como é habitual nos escalões de formação. O Sporting defrontará Liverpool, Molde e Wolfsburgo no Grupo 2 da competição cuja fase de grupos vai decorrer de Agosto a Novembro, enquanto a fase final será em Abu Dhabi, em Janeiro, com transmissão televisiva. A expectativa em relação à prova é grande, as "royalties" são também interessantes, e jogar nos estádios dos clubes uma estratégia de promoção. Participam também Aston Villa, Barcelona, Basileia, Celtic, Fenerbahçe, Inter de Milão, Manchester City, Marselha, PSV, Rosenborg, Tottenham e Ajax.
A confirmar-se os jogos em Alvalade, os preços devem ser baixos. Conto lá estar.

Sporting Lisbon Tournament Preview – Richard Cole When you think of the top Football Academies in Europe soon enough Sporting Clube de Portugal (or to many in England, Sporting Lisbon) is a club that pops in the mind. It’s not surprising really, Sporting owe a huge amount of debt to the talents that pass through the Academy. Whether they go on to play for the club or are sold for a sizable profit, the Academy is the lifeblood of Sporting. From Paul Futre (Ballon d’Or runner-up in 1987) to Luis Figo (Ballon d’Or winner in 2000) and to Cristiano Ronaldo (Ballon d’Or Winner in 2008, and runner up in 2007 and 2009 respectively). Sporting have created world-beating players. Sporting’s current Academy (due to sponsoring is at the moment called the Sporting/Puma Academy) was opened in June 2002 in Alochete which, if travelling from the Estádio José Alvalade requires a scenic trip on the incredibly impressive Vasco da Gama Bridge that overlooks the river Tagus. Its location in Alochete is secluded and private as most major football facilities these days now are – to keep the players in and any unwanted media out. Sporting’s Academy has always been a great provider not just for the senior Sporting side but also for the Portuguese national team. Looking at some of the recent youth teams, it is no surprise to consistently find that the majority are Sporting youth players. Those watching the upcoming NextGen tournament will almost be observing at least a few players on display that will make the grade at international level. For example, let’s look at the 2010 UEFA European Under-17 Championships, and you will find ten of the eighteen players that constituted that Portugal side (coached by ex-Sporting player Rui Bento) were Sporting players. For the 2010 FIFA World Cup the Sporting Academy boasted the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Nani, Simão, Beto, Miguel and Miguel Veloso. A certain João Moutinho should also have made the cut, but shockingly didn’t. Last season the Sporting youngsters mirrored their senior side, losing out to both Benfica and Porto. The Portuguese youth system has two separate divisions, a regional one to begin the season with, and then a further decisive league for the best of the North and South Regions. The Lisbon sides are in the South Zone – which if you look at a map makes perfect sense. Both the Lisbon clubs excelled with Sporting finishing only one point behind their Lisbon rivals. The top four of Sporting, Benfica, Leiria and Naval went through to the final phase (the Apuramento Campeão) and this time Sporting managed to beat Benfica in the table by twelve points, but still finished as the runners-up as Porto, who mopped up all of 2011, ran out clear leaders, finishing seven points clear of Sporting, having won all but one of their games. One of the players many have already tipped to become the “next Cristiano Ronaldo” (a tag that will become tedious for all future Portuguese talents) is sixteen year old Armindo Tué Na Bangna or simply, Bruma. Bruma is a hot property in Europe and the likes of Chelsea, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur are said to be tracking him. The forward is Portuguese but was born in Guinea-Bissau, much like one of Sporting’s current players Yannick Djaló. It’s the old cliché regarding youth level football, but it should be a common law – for the most part winning isn’t everything. Although winning is a huge part, the most important process is the player development. You can have your youth as a tactically astute winning machine but if it fails to also improve the players then it certainly is a problem. Like all teams, Sporting Clube de Portugal won’t be overly concerned about the result; it will be about player performances. A win is always wonderful, but being knocked out and knowing that you have a bunch of future stars on your hands is vastly more important. Then the next stage will be trying to keep those talents away from the rich clubs.
Q&A: Your lowdown on the NextGen Series for the best kids in European footballBy Simon JonesLast updated at 2:54 AM on 23rd June 2011Sportsmail's Simon Jones answers the key questions after revealing the news that Premier League sides Manchester City, Tottenham, Aston Villa and Liverpool will be part of the NextGen Series - a Champions League style tournament for Under 19 teams... So, the NextGen Series. A Champions League tournament for teenagers. Can you throw a few ringers in?No, not quite. The organisers want to lay down strict guidelines for the Under-19 tournament but, similar to the Under-21 set-up, they will allow three over-aged players (no older than 20) to join the squad. The idea is to encourage the use of younger players too, such as 16-year-old Raheem Sterling at Liverpool.Where are they going to play? In the park next to the swings?Er, no. NextGen want the tournament to mimic the Champions League where possible. Fenerbahce and Molde want games to be played in their grounds and Liverpool may allow their first match to take place at Anfield depending on pre-season fixtures. Celtic will try to use Celtic Park but Manchester City's stars of the future will walk out at Hyde's ground for home games. Playing at smaller venues is seen as a good idea if it helps generate good crowds and provides a good atmosphere.Why aren't Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United in it?Organiser Mark Warburton, who is also Brentford's sporting director, and his business partners already had good relationships with certain clubs from his academy days at Watford. That has played a part in the initial invites but plans are afoot to bring in other teams from next season if all goes well as they look to expand to 24 teams. As Liverpool, Aston Villa, Tottenham and Manchester City are already in the competition there was a strong desire to bring in more foreign sides to improve the variety of opposition.So, how often will they be playing?It will be similar to the Champions League, with fixtures starting from September 15 and scheduled for two or three week intervals. There are four groups of four teams who will play each other home and away. So that's six games each up until the end of November. The top two teams from each group will go through to a finals tournament in January that is likely to be held in Abu Dhabi.But does this mean the end for reserve teams?No. Manchester City have stopped playing in the reserve league but it is to tailor the needs of their elite development squad. City academy director Mark Allen said: 'Far from the reserves going away, it is actually getting stronger and more focused, and what the fans will see is more relevant football for that development stage.' As Warburton points out it is more to do with consistency of opposition. Some clubs do not want their young players turning up to face a load of first teamers coming back from injury. They believe playing against similar level opposition on a consistent basis is more beneficial.Can I watch it on the telly?Negotiations are underway but due to scheduling demands it is more likely to be on an ad hoc basis if at all this season. There may be a deal sorted for the finals. Clubs wanted flexibility with fixtures so that it doesn't cut across any domestic programme either. Strict TV scheduling would get in the way just now. If the tournament is a success then next year may see more TV coverage.Won't it just be a feeding frenzy for the big clubs to lazily pick up the best talent? It is to an extent but some of the clubs taking part such as Molde and Sporting Lisbon rely on producing good young talent to keep their club alive. They often have to sell and this is an ideal showcase for any talented players coming through. By the same token, if you are young and already playing in a top level tournament you may decide this club is where you should stay.What's the main objective? Money?The more cynical fans may think that. But clubs have struggled to agree to it in the first place because of the expense of taking teams round Europe and putting them up in hotels. As Chris McCart of Celtic's youth set-up said: 'Our purpose is to try and develop a Champions League player and it will expose them to that and replicate what that’s like at first-team level. We are confident the players will gain experience which will be vital to them in terms of the style of play and the travelling. We can also offer players the opportunity of playing against the likes of Barcelona and Man City on the big stage and in stadia, so it’s excellent from our recruitment point of view, too. We have signed up to it for the next three years and we are really excited about it.'
