Interesting read. Surely in time, Vietnamese, Indonesian, China, India etc players will be good enough for the A League. Surely

Given our results in Asia..they are already.
Cant afford a 25 year old, do a Celtic bring in 17 year olds develop them, sell them at 22.

Opportunity?

I'd say a lot would be already. But the foreigner rules don't really do them any favours and I'm sure they're happy playing in their homeland. Definitely a market with a lot of potential in the next few years.

Most of the players  in those leagues get paid a lot  more than  the hal teams can afford

This.

Also, if it's as simple as bringing in 17 year olds and selling them at 22, every club in Asia is thinking the exact same thing.

Were also not allowed to sign overseas players for youth teams

What club is going to sign a 17 year old that is realistically going to make a first team impact
