I think this is a great move. Here is Don Leo's resume from Wikipedia

* 1972 - 1975: SC Cambuur (Netherlands).
* 1975 - 1976: Go Ahead Eagles (Netherlands).
* September 1979 - March 1981: AFC Ajax (Netherlands). Dutch champion 1979/80. Resigned.
* 1981 - 1984: Real Zaragoza (Spain).
* 1985: FC Volendam (Netherlands). Relegation.
* February 1985 - March 1986: Dutch national team. 7 matches.
* 1986 - 1989: Real Madrid CF (Spain). Spanish champion 1986/87, 1987/88, 1988/89. Spanish cup 1988/89.
* August 1989 - September 1991: Ajax. Dutch champion 1989/90. Resigned.
* May 1990 - June 1990: Dutch national team. 6 matches, including 4 at the 1990 World Cup.
* September 1991 - January 1992: Real Madrid.
* 1992 - 1993: Grasshopper-Club (Switzerland).
* December 1993 - February 1994: Saudi Arabia national team. Fired.
* 1994 - April 1995: Club América. Fired.
* 1995 - 1996: Istanbulspor AS (Turkey).
* 1996: Chivas de Guadalajara (Mexico).
* 1996 - 1997: Vitesse (Netherlands). Started as coach, became Technical Director in December 1996.
* 1997 - April 2000: Feyenoord (Netherlands). Dutch champion 1998/99. Resigned.
* September 2000 - June 2003: Ajax, as director of technical affairs. Resigned.
* June 2003 - June 2004: Club América (Mexico). Resigned.
* November 2004 - April 2005: De Graafschap (Netherlands). Technical Advisor.
* May 2005 - June 2006: Trinidad and Tobago national team.
* July 2006 - present: Poland national football team.

While there are some questionmarks in there, his track record is far more sucessful and experienced then any current Polish coach. While I generally have my reservations concerning foreign coaches (I can't help but think back to our last foreign coach- that French dude from the early 60's ) , our last two performances in the WC shows that we need a breath of fresh air and someone to bring us modern football. Hopefully he will appoint Poles as assistants who can learn from his experience and improve the general standard of coaching in Poland.

I'm sure Beenhakker will be backed by the fans, he has a strong vote of confidence at the moment.

But many Polish coaches will only wait for him to stumble. If he does, they will most willingly announce that 'Polish option' is the only way and will continue telling old bullsh*t about the power of Polish coaching system

I'm a bit anxious that the contract is so short - only fifteen months, which means that the forthcoming qualifiers are do-or-die for Beenhakker.

Dariusz Dziekanowski is going to be his assistant.

Good luck, Mr. Beenhakker!

24 hours after the nomination and the only thing we can hear is that none of the top Polish coaches opted for hiring Beenhakker and it was Listkiewicz's individual decision. Not a good sign, but journalist and fans are in full support of the Dutch magician (hopefully, we'll need one ). Long may it last.

Bah, they are just afraid that he's going to upstage them.

Excellent!

I still have very fond, if fading, memories of 'Jackie' from his time as a player. Beenhakker seems like a good appointment to me, it's pleasing to see the Polish FA go for a respected European coach after a lot of doubts over whether they'd have the ambition to do that.

Who will his first match in charge be against?

A friendly against Denmark on 16th August.

And Euro qualification games:

2006-09-02 Polska - Finlandia
2006-09-06 Polska - Serbia
2006-10-07 Kazachstan - Polska
2006-10-11 Polska - Portugalia
2006-11-15 Belgia - Polska

To sleep well before next year's campaign, Leo needs to get 11-12 points of these four games.

Cheers, i'll be keeping an eye out for the results naturally. It's easier when Poland draw England in their qualifying groups though, and then i get to see all your games on Sky Sports...

11-12 points is going to be really tough to gain from those games IMO, if you can do that then it would be a fantastic start to the campaign.

No need to worry for his Polish future but Don Leo will be Feyenoords interim trainer till the end of the season.

We play FC Groningen in a 2 legged UEFA Cup play-off game with the first game on Thursday.

Hope he pulls it off since we're in a mess. Just like when he took over the first time, when we beat Juventus 2-0 in de Kuip a week or so after he took over


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"
