Yah, when he plays for his own team where he is the man.
In the dutch team he most of the time does jack shit and he can't perform.
think he already made 7 goals for the netherlands this qualification time.
(including qualification for euro 12 & friendly games) but still, pretty good scorer, think he made 35 goals and 15 assists for arsenal this season ?
You know Eussi, facts don't lie :-)
The dutch people (which is me too) are just pissed that he had so many chances and failed them all.
You can't argue reasonable with somebody that is pissed about something ;-) haha
Tonights the night. I will have a small moment of depression where I will whine in this thread, or I will be happy ... Either way, whatever I say tonight. Don't take it too serious.
im from germany and for some weird reason i think we wont have a good result tonight at all
its really who is more to 100%. and i think both are far away because letting get media to them, arguing about things that arent TOO important (van persie/huntelaar, gomez/klose) etc.
player seem to have to justify their game all the time and kinda loose the joy/letting the pressure get to them (kinda like lebron in last season). i think if one of the team for some reason wins say 3:0 tonight in a good match and can quiet media etc and be more confident - whoever this team is can potentially make a great run in the tournament because from a soccer quality potential both teams are in the top3 of the field from what i think
RVP or Hunter doesn't matter, it's all about Netherlands finding their rhytm. If they are finding their pace in the first 15minutes it might become one of the best games in the EURO. Allthough I'm german and love good old football rivalry, i'd rather see the dutch advance than portugal or denmark.
So I guess, in some way, gl Snappie ;-)
By the way, you might be able to advance with just 3 points....
the dutch are way underrated atm imo. they lost vs Denmark, but it was just one of these games in which you are just unable to score no matter how hard you try. And that's right now the biggest difference in our group: the dutch really had chances to score while Germany/Portugal both really weren't able to find a working system to successfully attack. Germany has a working defense right now, but you can't really win these important matches by only defending [ok, it worked for Greece and Chelsea]
That said I think in general Germany > Netherlands, but at the moment I really believe it is more like Germany >== Netherlands
nice one^^ but well, at least our McD commercial is better then yours
