Matchfixing (?)

It's been an issue in VI's paper version already weeks and now I found an article in national press as well.

http://www.nu.nl/sport/2818278/kamer...dstrijden.html

In mainly Eastern European countries, but as well for example Germany and Sweden, in mainly lower leagues, there has been a lot of match fixing proven.
As well as friendly matches from Dutch teams in the winter, like for example in Turkey. I believe the AZ-Werder match even was fixed and lead by a banned referee or something.

Anyway, I don't think it happens in the Netherlands right now, but you'll never know of course.

This is a Dutch naive way of think. I've noticed this amongst many Dutch folks. You guys often think that Holland is coruption free etc. Hate to burst your buble but it isnt. Pretty sure matchfixing has been done before in Holland

Perhaps but for sure on a very low base it must have been then.

There will always be suspicious decisions by referees and suspicious actions by players, but don't think things are really fixed in professional football, perhaps a few Jupiler games where nothing was at stake anymore, but like I said, never say never.

Matchfixing (?)

If its happened in Germany and Belgium, you cant rule Holland out.

Would be very surprised if it was at the highest level though like in Turkey with the biggest clubs reporrtedly being involved. More like the really bad sides in the Jupiler league or were Mario Been and Ruud Gullit involved too at Fey?

I'd be shocked if it didn't take place here. It's unlikely to be happening in the Eredivisie because of the significant media exposure, it's too risky. But in the Jupiler League? I don't doubt it.

My only complaint is that they keep rigging wrong outcomes. I don't want fvcking Zwolle to be promoted.

The 10-0 loss to P$V last season was definitely match-fixed!

PSV-Lokomotiv Plovdiv 3-0 (january pre-season friendly) and Achilles'29-Willem II 1-5 are under suspicion.

Highlights from the friendly PSV were involved in, Lokomotiv Plovdiv looked very poor...
