Please pull us out of Euro 2008

Appalling away to Luxembourg only beating them 0-1

Lucky to not draw against Albania at home when the referee failed to give them a last minute penalty after clumsy Bouhlarouz made a foul

Appalling away to Slovenia where we beat them thanks to a deflected van Bronckhorst shot from 30 yards in the last minute

Appalling once again against Albania where we deserved to lose despite coming away 0-1 winners thank to an injury time goal from the horse. A 100% legitimate goal from Albania ruled out too.

Tactical cluelessness shown from our manager especially in the game away against Romania and I could continue....

I don't think I've ever been this down going into a major championship.

I envy the English and I really feel for the Scottish that they won't be there while we will. Worst still van Basten's gonna be rewarded by our clueless FA with a 2 year extension to his contract and you just know he isn't going to improve.

It honestly can't get any worse.

I mean you are in Pot 1 at EURO2008 draw

you should be delighted :thmbup:

Big games are easy than the other games, unfortunately. Every times we have the control the games, under the control the games, during the games we had the some possibilities, some big chances, some big okazyons, something like that but what can I do, sometimes? And….it’s the football, that’s the football, something happened. Everything is something happened. - Fatih Terim

I agree with you, you should not be in the Euros, you are only in because of the scumbaggery in Albania.

Bulgaria would be in had you not been gifted those points there.

Big teams usually play better in final tournaments than qualifiers and Holland is a big team. Your squad is scary on paper

scary? You call a potential back line of de Cler, Mathijsen, Jaliens and Melchiot scary?

Don't think he was referring to your back line. More like 6 choices for attack, that are some of the best in Europe when in form... RVN, RVP, Robben, Babel, etc.

Robben is injured all the time, Babel is nowhere near the best in Europe, RVN is class but van Basten does not know how to supply him properly and the same goes for RVP. So please, take us out of EC2008 before the image of Dutch football is damaged forever.

Surely if those were the options, Ryan Donk would have a place there?

No, not right now. He's got Ooijer and Heitinga also ahead of him in the pecking order.

You guys have too amazing of a possible offence to be left out. RVN, Robben, Van Persie, Sneijder, VDV. If all are in form and not injured then you have the best offence in the tournament. Sure your defence is still blah but that just make it better for us neutrals.

Van Persie
Van Nistelrooy

- no way, we want Holland there and you can draw a line under qualification because it means sh*t how you got there, it'll be different once you're in the finals and your big game players switch on instead of doing just enough which happens in qualifiers.
