We could well end up with a deal that keeps freedom of movement with EU, a deal that has free movement of labour, or something else. But some of the key areas of Brexit in terms of immigration, would directly effect football.

More than likely will impact the likes of Morecambe signing someone from the French 4th division rather than PL clubs

The 75% of matches is for national side, he has only played 1 friendly. If he got Belgium and EU citizenship, that traditionally removes the main difficulties with work permits, caps for country etc. Think it was 3 years for Belgium citizenship and he's been at Eupen for 2 years. Brexit and EU situation doesn't seem to have changed transfers that much as far, don't see why it would change next summer.

Could be proved wrong, but don't see any reason for it to be 2 year loan. Think it's probably stemmed from a resentful West Ham or Arsenal fan.
I edited it to say 75% for Nigeria. :)

Have to say I'm highly sceptical of being able to gain Belgian citizenship in just 3 years, when my wife and I looked at places she could easily settle and get EU citizenship it was generally at least 5 and I don't think Belgium was an exception. As @Lxxx says though, if he tears it up again then special dispensation might come into play.

We're talking about experts in their own field though, of which professional footballers are. It's not your average Joe who's a shop assistant who wants to move to another EU country, it's a top pro who's looking to make the move.

So for the average Joe, yep it would be a ballache. Not so much for a top pro player.

Well why aren't we able to get a work permit for this fella then?

Players in the Swedish league aren't going to be considered the best in their field are they?

If nothing else, the fact we have to apply for a permit for every non-uk player will add a layer of complexity we're not used to (giving more reason for the stress heads to assume it's gone tits up)

I assumed as only other person who had a strong negative opinion, had the good grace to admit they had stopped watching after a minute. With dribblers, they often start the video with the 'not quite' clips.

He was averaging 1 in 1 in last dozen games. This goal was against team who finished 2nd in the league.

It was the shot on 56 seconds of the video in the original post that finished me off. Couldnt grasp why in a highlights video on youtube someone would put a shot in that goes about 30 yards wide!!

In most countries, it's 5 years to gain citizenship, but if you marry a native of that country, you can apply after three years. That's in general, Australia, US, UK etc, it's probably the same in most countries.

Ahhh, interesting, didn't know that.

Sadly it's back to 5 years here in the UK for marriage.

I seem to remember that Wenger used to have this dodgy plan of strip-mining Ivorian talent where he'd operate academies in Abidjan, bring the most promising youngsters over to Belgium (Beveren, specifically), park them there for 3 seasons to get them a European passport, and then take them to Arsenal or flog them, or just leave them to fend for themselves if they turned out to be not good enough.

Eboue was probably the only one who made it to Arsenal through this route and then they were rumbled, but it was definitely a viable plan at the time.

Are you talking about Mimosas? They produced some top players. I didn't know Wenger was involved but Arsenal bought Kolo Toure from them.

Yeah, I've looked it up and it turns out I was. :)
