That's what I don't like about world football: there are good teams, playing in average leagues (Ajax in the Eredivisie), that will never be able to pull off a champions cup because the top players they develop always end up playing elsewhere. (See Van Persie, Robin; Sneijder, Wesley; and Robben, Arjen). And more recently, Gregory van der Wiel.
Ajax would be a pretty dominant team if they played in the same league as BPL/Bundesliga teams.
I'm still sore over holland losing the World Cup, and with it, a lot of money for me. I wonder how often Robben replays that wide shot in his mind! But I do love Amsterdam...what an amazing city.
