Twenny nine/ten pre-season drivel

Coupla tidbits.

First, we got new shirts yay. I like the shirt but Dirk's presence is excessive like a Telegraaf headline.



Also: you can participate in an official auction for signed jerseys. All the players are represented and the profits will go to a charity (spieren voor spieren). So far the most expensive one is Romero's (€400). Auction ends on May 21 at noon (11am UK time).

I'm bidding on Moreno's shirt so everybody back off from that one :fero:

As of today, you can now also order the little flyer magazines that the club places on the seats for every home game. You've seen these things. For those of us who have money to spare (or won the lottery - henryrules, any news yet?).

sponsor logo can't get any smaller than that really

I still prefer the 08/09 kits since I'm a fan of collars...don't think I'll be participating in the auction though

They changed it after an "internal evaluation" ie thousands of complaints from fans

So still a bank for Romero? Even with three letters it's still not that great. Mostly cause the combination of those three letters ain't that great.

ALBION have revealed they will not be taking up the options on three players whose contracts run out this summer.

Pele, Carl Hoefkens and Jared Hodgkiss will all be released as the Baggies look to 'evolve and strengthen' their squad for the Championship.

Chairman Jeremy Peace has also confirmed Sherjill MacDonald is set to leave The Hawthorns, while Jay Simpson and Ryan Donk will be returning to Arsenal and AZ Alkmaar respectively following loan spells.

After several internal evaluations, AZ has given a number of players clarity over their future. Kees Luijckx and Graziano Pellč have been told they may leave.

From the current squad, Gijs Luirink will almost certainly be loaned out.

The following players were loaned out this season: Kemy Agustien, Simon Cziommer, Ryan Donk, Milano Koenders and Boy Waterman. They have also been told to seek a new employer.

AZ has informed all above mentioned players personally over the past few weeks. The club states, on the official website, that reasons for their dismissal vary. All players have one thing in common: AZ feel they can't offer them any decent future prospects.
Graziano :frownani:

All the best to the guys.

Too bad for Luijckx, really thought he looked the part when he was at Excelsior.

The same with Bruins


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"

Well, from now one it will be just the second rate players from Feyenoord playing there, so you can imagine it can't be that much.

Luijckx played as an attacking midfielder with Excelsior btw. A position where his (lack of) defensive qualities werent exposed.

"I wouldn't say no to that", the forward told Het Laatste Nieuws, "I'm in a good situation here. I could stay at AZ where I'm comfortable and enjoying myself, or I could move to a foreign club. Anything in between is also an option."

Chelsea would like Dembélé to gain the experience of playing in the Champions League before he definitely moves to London. He'd make the switch in the summer of 2010.

If all the rumors are to be believed, Sevilla, Milan, Juventus, Fiorentina and Genoa are competitors for Chelsea in the race to sign Dembélé.
I can live with that

Training sessions so far have been highly uninteresting cause the internationals are still gone so all we're looking at are the reserves and the loaners who came back. On that note, here's one lovely phenomenon from the category Some Things Do Not Change:
