Feyenoord, finally…. Champions!

Wow guys, I needed a couple of days to emerge again after the celebrations…. “It was 20 years ago today…”, The Beatles said, but it was actually 18 years and 9 days… The desire and shear need to win the title was humungous in Rotterdam. Once, one of the richest clubs in the world. The […]

Why Feyenoord wins the title!

Yes, this weekend it will most likely happen, after 18 years of drought. Sure, in 2002 we got the UEFA Cup and we won some national cups, but the title…the best of the country, access to Champions League… A historic year for Feyenoord for sure! But, we do need to open this post with some […]

Dutch resilience with Feyenoord and Ajax victories

Note: I don’t get to post pictures like this often, ok? Please let me enjoy this 🙂 Have we turned a corner? Even slightly? After a dreary period of Dutch club football (and a shorter dry spell for the NT) both Oranje and Dutch club football seems to be making their way up again. Overall, […]

What are your best Oranje Euro memories?

Time now to stop bickering about whether Kuyt is a headless chicken, Memphis has thunder thighs (all that erotica!) and whether Tiju is a better coach than Van Gaal and Hiddink… Time to swallow our pride and start this Euros 2016 experience with fond memories of our lads in past tournaments. The Euros are usually […]

Analysis Oranje failure to qualify

Let’s look at the way we had to operate during qualifications. And allow me to first draw your attention of the Pre-Qualification period. 1. WC 2014 Van Gaal decided to change the 4-3-3 tactics of Oranje drastically, to not get obliterated by the likes of Spain, Mexico et al at the Word Cup in Brazil. […]

Dutch football cameo for Euro 2016

It is quite annoying to take too long to write posts. Before you know it, things change and Louis van Gaal is out. Propper is staying with his pregnant girlfriend and Steven Berghuis is in…. Read on… This is the time when Oranje fans dust off their orange gear… Wigs, hats, trumpets, jerseys, sun glasses, […]

The Future of Oranje and Dutch Football

Musings… ON FACEBOOK Our Netherlands World Cup Facebook page was taken down by Facebook! I am not sure why, they don’t get back to me and I’m a bit done with them, so sadly, we’ll need to start that again. In case you were wondering…. ON THE BLOG I still highly enjoy the work and […]

Oranje stunned by French, stuns English…

What a week we had! We lost the greatest Dutchman of the last 100 years. The most famous Dutchman, actually. Step into any taxi on the planet and when the driver realises you’re from Holland, he’ll say some version of Cruyff’s name. “Croeff!” Or “Croif”. Or YohanKruf”. But they all talk about the number 14… […]

Oranje: A New Beginning (Blind leading the pack)

It is time to get positive again! Yes, we are frustrated. Yes we should have gone to the Euros. Yes, mistakes were made. But we can keep on moaning about it and withdraw support etc and where will this leave us? I do believe the players were partly to blame, but I also believe they […]

Dutch football needs make over. Fast!

My friends, I would like to start this post with expressing my support and sympathy to the Greatest Football Player Ever, Johan Cruyff. The Catalan Salvador announced that he is battling lung cancer at the moment. Johan was a chainsmoker most of his active life and quit in 1991 after serious heart problems. Johan is […]
