crappy lineup.. nice going LVG
cool story bro
Does anyone know a website where I can watch the game using android phone? I am in my class and I want to watch game … Thank u in advance if some1 knows
frombar . tv
Thanks for the live blog, Jan. OZO!
Germany much better composed these first few minutes.
16 mins or so into the game…very boring so far from both sides
U G L Y so far. Robben is not helping his bad image as a cheat.
Sorry but Schaken is an idiot. Robben was right in the middle 🙁
not an exciting front three today
Thank God Germany is under strength. This game could easily be over by now.
Holland is also under strenght…
Sure, but if Germany is playing with 20 year olds we’re playing with much more experienced 30 yr olds.
And that is worse. If we were playing like Germans with 20 year olds,I am sure we would be better than this.
Schaken is a winger without speed and he is old. Why is he in the national team?
Beats me… A chance to give some younger players a good test and we see the 30 year old Schaken instead.
Germany is the new Holland, really impressive. For 2nd half keep only BMI, Heitinga and change everybody else. No need for De Jong, Schaken, Kuyt, all garbage.
BMI is NOT staying on his wing – drifts in too much leaving the wing open – Heitinga playing very well but its like a heavyweight boxing match but the boxers throwing lightweight punches….
Crappy first half–terrible. Boring game and we were outplayed by the Germans. Don’t understand why LVG is using this lineup. Very little on the attacking end. The Dutch inexplicably parked the bus through most of the first half–playing too far back. Seems a wasted game so far.
Wonderful Live report 🙂 . Thank you both Jan and Carlos 🙂 .
Heitinga kicks ass tonight . afellay is very good . BMI and Van rijn are good . Vaart has brilliant vision and poor work rate . the rest of the team is bad .
FANTASTIC first half!
Highly entertaining. End to end.
Both sides creating chances – neither can find the net. Germany perhaps a little more composed, Holland perhaps a little more inventive.
Elia for Robben
Afellay to the right wing
Van ginkel for Schaken
clasie for de jong
huntelaar for kuyt
Affelay can help this squad but where is the right spot for him? Drop De Jong–and while I love Kuyt but his time as passed. Same with Van der Vaart–can’t win a Cup with him. Schaken, i don’t get. One of the TV announcers speculated that Hunter was held out because he’s got a league game coming up. I’m sure we’ll see him in second half.
LVG may want to wear down Germany and its famous counterattack, with the priority in the first half to shut down scoring and to bring a little wobble to their knees. Have to guess that everyone is laying back on his orders. Kuyt sure looks out of sorts in this strategy.
Eager to see what fresh legs he brings in now. And to see more attack.
It will be very bad if we lose to the germans again.
give me one reason why kuyt is playing
Erm…To strike fear in the German defence with his incredible technique!:)
Leadership, intelligence, stamina.
Oh sorry, you only wanted one. Take your pick, dumbass!
de jong needs to go really, all he does is foul
very nice Jaanmat… almost !
Van Ginkel vs Maher. Who is better??
I prefer Maher,he is more complete and can find a killer pass. Van Ginkel is more hard working,Maher is overall better.
Kuijt has passed very well today
glad I turned over to see the last goal in the Sweden England game. Zlatan scored a belter
he literally made Hart like an idiot 🙂
Very proud of this Dutch team. Van gaal is doing a fantastic job so far. Impressed by so many players. Vermeer, Kuyt, all of the defenders bar none, and some others as well..
It’s a good day for Dutch football. Good result, good performance, good development and progress.
I think it’s safe to say, although german youngsters get all the praise, Our youngsters can give them a run for the money and even surpass them
Janmaat was the man of 2nd half .
Exciting for a 0-0. Plenty of good movement and solid passing. Very happy with that.
LVG has got a decent mix of players. Interesting times ahead.
Were we watching the same game. Maybe your tv added some special effects, but the one i saw will be voted as the most boring affair of the year, including games where the Greek football team participated on!
I am happy with the second half. We run and pressed more and if any team deserved the win, it was us. Very nice …
Break a leg 🙂
I’d love to see BMI as center back alongside Vlaar. And Kuyt should be our 5th option for center forward behind RVP, Huntelaar, Bas Dost, Wolfswinkel and L. De Jong.
Vlaar is absolute shit on the ball. Heitinga is better on the ball and a better defender. He stopped probably three sure goals in the first half. Play him beside BMI and put Vlaar on the bench
I expected more from Van der Vaart. He has played over 100 years but has never been a starter so I really expected some urgency from him to shine in order to be considered as a possible starter.
The good: we didn’t lose.
The bad: everything else.
My God, I never realized a Netherlands-Germany game could be so boring. But seriously, what is Schaken doing in the team? Where are Bost, Wolfswinkel, Luuk de Jong?
PS. That Zlatan’s last goal against England… could it be one of the greatest goals ever scored?
I have to watch Zlatan’s goal everybody is talking about it!.
I actually thought Schaken was our best winger tonight but nothing amaing.
It seemed as if LVG didn’t want to experiment too much because he wanted to end our losing record vs Germany.
Pft his goal isn’t that impressive. Flukey more like it.
Agreed. Lucky shot. He meant it, of course, but it only works every once in 1000 times. He got his one now. Good for him. Not the best goal ever.
Not even in the top 10.
Thanks for this Jan – I like the live-blog format – maybe someday I’ll be able to participate – (just need a day off at the right time!)

Paraphrased from some quote by JC – don’t know where…hope I’ve spelled it correctly 🙂
(The americans say that a tie is like kissing your sister)
