    Time to get this started. Major questions.
    1. Will YB loose players
    2. Will any BCL team add to challenge Servette?
    3. What will Lugano/Sion/Xamax/GCZ to avoid the drop?
    4. Can Chiasso/Kriens add anyone to avoid relegation?

    FCSG
    In - Victor Abril Ruiz, a 25 year old forward from Spain, has joined the club from the 4th Spanish Division club SD Formentera. His contract runs through Jun 2021.

    FCZ
    Extension - Mirlind Kryeziu has had his contract extended until June 2022. The 21 year old defender has played 8 times this fall.
    In - Yann Kasai, a 20 year old forward, has joined the club with a contract through June 202 from YB II. The Swiss U20 International has scored 13 times in 14 matches in the 1st League (4th Division)

    Interesting, two younger players for FCZ. I wonder how much they had to pay for Kasai, I am sure that YB is not happy that he left. Also I wonder if the arrival of Ruiz in St Gallen signifies the end of the American, Mannah, time there.

With the return of CIcek and Sessolo, Schaffhausen will be much for dangerous in the attack.
