A Dutch XI from the Football League, not Premier League

Where would this team finish in the Eredivisie/Jupiler League?

I'd say 11th to 13th at best. Probably lower with a standard trainer. Better than the bottom three though.

There are some players who probably would be too good for a NAC or NEC like Van Aanholt or de Vries (if you go by the reports) but there are some who either are very average (Seip) or ones I've never heard of like Cathalina.


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"

That's an ADO team there.

So it's good enough for the Europa League then?
I was expecting "Jupiler League standard" for that XI.

Oh, and Andor, surely you should have a daenarys avatar?

I would agree with Wally to an extent.

Players like van Aanholt, Bruma and Bodde (going off reports) would see them finish higher than 18th place but nowhere higher than the relegation zone.

I really dont see a big gap between this team and Excelsior and VVV.

It depends on the coach but no way can you compare it to ADO where most players have been playing with eachother for quite a long while.

With all do respect ADO is not a club good enough for the EL, they are just lucky Groningen screwed it up.

A lot would depend on their coach and momentum. They have a few talented players, but also quite a few guys who wouldn't get a contract anymore in the Eredivisie because they have been used enough times to know that they will fail a next time too or we have never even heard of.

Midfield is decent but I'm not sure they'd score many goals. I agree with Wally.
