Week 8: Feyenoord - FC Twente

Sunday at 16:45 in De Kuip. Time for another embarrassing home butt kicking.

Expected lineup:
Vermeer
Geertruida, Botteghin, Ie, Haps
Toornstra, Tapia
Kokcu
Berghuis, Narsingh, Larsson

Didn't watch the 0-3 loss to AZ in De Kuip, but it didn't surprise me. I expect that we will also lose to Twente, likely 0-2 or 1-3, something like that. Horrible offense, horrible defense.

Absolutely everyone's looked bad recently. No one seems to have a clue about what to do. No one knows how to play without a striker (and who can really blame them?).

Larsson sends Berghuis free down the right side, and he moves left to slot in with his left foot (of course), 1-0 in 6'.

A defensive screwup by Toornstra sends Twente clear for the 1-1, 23'.

With a former defender as head coach, you would think we would have a better defense than last season, but NOOOO. This is the worst defense we have had in years.

Fer tees up Larsson for the 2-1, 26'.

We still need 3 or 4 more goals to offset the goals our defense will give up.

Kokcu picked up a knock so Tapia replaced him at 44'. Half time, 2-1.

Coming in along the left touchline, Larsson tries chipping a pass to the back post for a teammate, but a Twente defender heads it in for the 3-1. Own goal, but we'll give Larsson an assist on that.

66' Sinisterra scores to make it 4-1.

88' Twente defender plays ball back to goalkeeper who doesn't pick it up (he can't) and he pushes it forward to take his goal kick, Larsson jogs up and goalkeeper kicks it into Larsson and it rebounds back into goal, 5-1. Larsson got a hattrick of sorts, two goals from free play and a shot off a Twente defender for a Twente own goal. He gets MotM for me; best effort I have seen from him in a while.

Cruised to a win in the end. Could have even easily won by more. So much was our dominance in the second half. Sinisterra and Larsson were our best players.

This was the type of result we should be getting against Twente btw. Twente have been getting better results than what they should really be with their squad, but credit to them.


Lex Immers - Pace & power. Holland's #1 box to box player

Feyenoord forum - the place to talk about this phenomenon

Ronald Koeman "Oranje kan Immers goed gebruiken"

Fred Rutten "Feyenoord heeft Immers nodig"

Van Marwijk over Lex Immers: 'Stille kracht van Feyenoord'

John de Wolf “Dat is nou precies de aanjager, het ’etterbakkie’ in het veld dat Feyenoord in dit soort wedstrijden nodig heeft"

Yup. Twente have a pretty rubbish squad. Still, good to see us do this well. Hope our boys will draw inspiration from this performance, especially Larsson who's looked a bit short on confidence this term. If Berghuis continues on the flank after Jorgensen is back, the other winger position will be between Larsson and Sinisterra probably, and would be a shame to bench either if they play like this. Narsingh has looked useful on the wing too, so as said before, the wings are in good order player material wise. I'm still not at all convinced by Stam though, but who knows perhaps things will start turning up.
