European spot play-off 2013

Ok, so we know who're going to fight for the last European spot left, which means entering the Europa League 2013/2014 in the 2nd qualification round.

5. FC Utrecht 34 - 63
6. FC Twente 34 - 62
7. FC Groningen 34 - 43
8. SC Heerenveen 34 - 42

Thursday 16/05
SC Heerenveen - FC Utrecht
FC Groningen - FC Twente

Sunday 19/05
Returns

Thursday 23/05
Both winners to play eachother, highest league finished first to play away

Sunday 26/05
Return

- - - - - - - - - -

Normally you'd say Utrecht and Twente to play the final, but you'll never know. Personally I don't like it Utrecht finished just one point behind Vitesse on the 5th place, which normally would secure European football next season, but because of these stupid playoffs it's far from sure now.

For the Dutch coefficients you better hope Twente win it. With Djuricic out I dont see Heerenveen having any shot. So I agree with you, it will probably be Twente - Utrecht.

For how many more years are we gonna have these crappy play-offs?

Now the turtle has a chance of getting into Europe. Hope not.

If we would be able to enter Europe with our current squad I don't think we're worse than Twente.
However, these are the players who'll definitely leave: Duplan, Wuytens and Kali. They'll be probably followed by v.d. Hoorn, Mulenga, Asare and maybe Bulthuis. So far only Toornstra came as a replacement, he really brings the team to a higher level btw.

Twente - Utrecht for the final, and Twente to win it.

They look improved since Steve has left, so I don't hate them anymore!

Personally, I would like Utrecht there...


Also, I like the play-offs, without them, the mid-table clubs would have almost no incentive.

Steve to manage Wolves and take them down to division 2?

Ridiculous that they went down. Kevin Doyle looked a handy player in the premiership while Berra and Roger Johnson weren't bad either. Jamie O'Hara / the Jordy Clasie lookalike is also there.

Would love that. :hopeful:

They have some good players, should be a sale on there in the summer.

Feyenoord to sign Doyle as a second striker?

Nice flick from Gutierrez following a Tadic cross and at least one of the favourites in today's play-offs takes the lead.

Twente collapsing

1-2 at HT

Kostic actually did something right with a nice assist for Kirm's goal

Nice fact was Castaignos literally didn't touch a ball in the first half.

Groningen had nothing to say in the second half. All they did was waiting for the goal to fall.

Yeah, back to the walls stuff from Groningen.

Luckily for Twente, they have Chadli, Tadic, Gutierrez and Rosales who can attack but yes, where was Castaignos. Didn't try to combine or get into a finishing position. Nothing
