Eredivisie 2011/12 Team of Half Season

A good topic to get going.

I saw quite a few people disagreed with the 11 de Telegraaf suggested to why not all put forward their best 11 of the 17 games each side has had so far.

Its hard for me to do this seeing as i only basically watch PSV games, so many of my selections would be based on the highlights i have seen this season.

Esteban

Leerdam - Moisander - Vlaar - Burnet

Narsingh - Elm - Strootman - Mertens

de Jong - Bony

I had trouble with the CB's and the GK department mostly.

Its hard picking out a back line when, as i said, im basing this off watching PSV games and highlights of some other teams games.

Esteban

Leerdam - de Vrij - Moisander - Burnet

Elm - El Ahmadi - Strootman

Sulejmani - Bony - Mertens

I refuse to put ter Grabbelaar in goal

Also couldn't think of any other credible RB so put Leerdam in.
Rosales can't defend as proved against Rubinho, vd Wiel has been out of form, Manolev despite his assists in the last 2 games is average while Marcellis is not to be taken seriously despite a bright start.


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'

Really wally Mik in the team?

Mihaylov
Moisander Nuytink De Vrij
Elm Clasie Strootman
Djuricic
Narsingh De Jong/Bony Mertens

I chose for a 3 mans backline because of the fact that there is no noteworthy RB in the Eredivisie. Goalies are also really poor so I choose the best goalie in the Eredivisie not judging by his performances because I havent seen all that many Twente games. Djuricic has been on fire lately but there is a bit of Bias there

Really did my best to think of a team with players who impressed me during the first season half, the result:

Zoet (RKC)

Bovenberg (FC Utrecht) - Kashia (Vitesse) - Poulsen (AZ)

Elm (AZ) - Strootman (PSV) - Clasie (Feyenoord) - Meijers (RKC)

Narsingh (Heerenveen) - Malki (Roda JC) - John (FC Twente)

Players who came close: Mertens, Assaidi, Dost, Eriksen, Vormer, Moisander to name a few.

Zoet's a good one. Overlooked him.

The flop XI btw:

Rob Van Dijk

vd Wiel - Nieveld - Marcus Nilsson - Blind - Fleuren


Wesley Verhoek - ? - ?

Zeefuik - Gerndt

Stef Nijland deserves a spot in that flop XI, Vermeer is another option. Wisgerhof too.

Inevitably ran into the problem that none of our league's defenders are really noteworthy so, on the basis that defense is overrated, here is my team:

Esteban (AZ)

Leerdam (Feyenoord) - Kalas (Vitesse) - Burnet (FC Groningen)

Clasie (Feyenoord) - Elm (AZ)
John (Twente) - Maher (AZ) - Assaidi (Heerenveen)

Labyad (PSV)
Giudetti (Feyenoord)

Don't know why Assaidi gets so few mentions, to be frank. Only Knoert puts him on the bench. He was the 2nd name on my sheet after Elm.

Im not at all charmed by Assaidi. Dribbles.to much, doesnt have enough vision for the free role he has and is egoistic.

I forgot about Kalas hes been good for Vitesse

lol i would not put Labyad in my best 11. Both Mertens and Gini have been better than him thus far for us.

Bovenberg is a good option for RB and Zoet for the GK section as alternatives to the ones i (and most of us choose) in Leerdam and Esteban.

I notice quite a few of you have put Vitesse players as CB's but seeing as i dont watch then i had to settle on either Vlaar or de Vrij

Can really Bovenberg do more than score from set pieces? Because that's why he gets noted now all the time.

Hes good on the ball and has superb crosses. Don't know what hes like defensively though.

He still easily beats 90% of the RB's in the league any day of the week.

Change Fleuren for Nkume/Emenike!

He's been our only decent player so far, he never makes mistakes at the back and when he comes forward it's often dangerous. Brilliant signing, I think he'll end up at a much better club than Utrecht at this moment.

Come on Knoert, Fleuren is a terrible player. But yeah, he wasn't exceptionally more terrible than other seasons, I'll admit that
