Well, let me hope that you're wrong because they were lucky not to have lost by another 3 or 4 in the first game :smileani:

Editing posts and re-quoting them up? Oldest tricking in this place.... :rollani:

Amatuerish at it's best. Better start to jog or you'll be left behind buddy.

Dreadful defending. Midget midfielder totally unmarked. 1-0 Braga


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"

They did what we could't do in Lisbon, score right away. This will be an open game, don't think they'll sit back.

what a shitty first half...We concede early and then Saviola hits the post at point-blank range. Braga came out bombing forward. They seem to want it really bad.

Braga will go into time-wasting mode for the 2nd half.

Gotta come out pushing in the second half, Jara certainly can't do any worst than Saviola so there's hope.

evenly matched game, altough AIMAR is surely missed !
what a shame he isn't there.


on a sidenote perhaps: can somebody tell me why " nuno gomes" never plays anymore? i used to like him very much, but i'm wandering if he's still any good. he's not even on the bench so far in this europa league...

Our coach thinks that Nuno has lost a step, the fans think he would be able to help late in the games, anyway the man is getting back into shape after having his knee scoped.
