Mailbag: Travelling players of the 1960s, Real Madrid's youth system and the loan system

Get the party started because the Mailbag is here and answering your questions about football on the continent. First up we talk about the under appreciated Gerry Hitchens who plied his trade in Italy way before it was fashionable to do so, and then we hop over to Spain to find out just exactly what's going on with Dani Ceballos.

After that we take the time to appraise some fairly controversial ideas, including effective time, and abuse of the loan system.
