    I have subscribed to your blog and have been following it for a little while. I am interested in a partnership with your site; for example, we could do a link/banner exchange. It would be very beneficial for the both of us and also great because our sites are on very similar topics (Liga I and Romanian Football).

    My website:
    (the original website is at but the above url redirects to there)

    Just e-mail me back or post a comment on my partnership page if you are interested.

    Thanks in advance.

    How did you end up as a football scout? It’s not really like a major you pick for college.

      By answering an ad. Took it from scratch, really, as I had no “past” in this field, just huge passion for the game and a decent journalist’s knowledge of Romanian football. Worked my way up eversince.

        Wow! That is great, always thought about being a scout from my Football Manager playing days. Any advice for someone interested in such a career?

    Always try to help first and then discuss (financial) terms and conditions. Most of the times, you’ll feel like you’ve done some work for nothing, but sometimes it does pay back nicely 😉
