France (a) / Bulgaria (h) - Holland

We really are absolutely terrible. Playing like Moldova or Lithuania at the moment.

France aren't even giving it their all

Strootman looks way off the pace

We are an absolute shambles

But remember, with Danny we would have lost 7-0

But there is still a chance with 3 wins out of 3.

Its going to be helluva game at Amsterdam Arena on Sunday

Manolev said he would score a brace to the Dutchies. Lets see if he is going to keep his promise.

Anyone from the Dutch XT going to the game? I am planning to be there (depends on Monday business though).

I won't.

Will watch it on TV though. Thursday's game was painful viewing. Normally 90 mins fly by, but this seemed to take ages.

What can we expect on Sunday? Holland to have more of the ball, try to dominate possession with Bulgaria looking to score on the break?

Vilhena is in for Strootman.

The way Bulgaria will play today depends on the choice of midfielders. If you see Nedelev/Malinov/Kraev instead of Chochev/Slavchev in the starting lineup then expect the posession to be different from that of the reverse game in Sofia in March (30:70). So, we could try to keep the ball rather than play on counters.

I still think the Dutch will make it to the playoffs in our group. Winning the games at home vs. Bulgaria and Sweden is quite realistic as in all honesty our boys are over-performing (4-0-0 at home so far is just amazing in this group), while the Swedes are quite vulnerable on the back (especially the goalkeeping was ridiculous in our game). I am realistic here; not trying to jinx anyone.

Enjoy the game tonight!

Good win but if the goals come from a player registered with Brighton of all clubs then better we dont go to the WC perhaps?!

He did prove that he's better than the Nice player who just walks around nowadays.

Bulgaria have indeed overperformed. You could say that Ivelin Popov is their only really good player in their current team.

That said, we're not much better than an Austria at the moment.

Quincy Promes, Daley Blind and Propper made the difference yesterday. Rest were ok.

Vincent Janssen's choice to not leave Spurs was crazy unless he plans on becoming the white Bogarde.

Some people are worried that we won't even have a decent team for 2020.

As things stand, we have no half decent striker. Vincent Janssen and Luuk de Jong are similar level strikers. Eredivisie level at best. Bas Dost is probably better, but limited. He would have been a Vennegoor or Youri Mulder if he was around 10 to 20 years ago.

Wingers: Quincy Promes can be handy at international level. JP Boetius? untested at international level though. Chance now at Feyenoord at CL level.
We might only have one decent winger in 2020. Bergwijn hasn't had a full season of Eredivisie football, despite Torino already offering 10m euros.

Midfield: Strootman not the same since his injury. Davy Klaassen is finding his feet at Everton. Still too early to say anything. Tonny Vilhena to be the new anchor man? who knows. Vd Beek is one for the future. Propper and van Ginkel are honest players, but unproven at the highest level.

Defence: De Vrij and van Dijk could be a steady partnership. We haven't seen it yet though. Karsdorp on the right and Blind for now on the left.

Goalie: Zoet, benchwarmer Cilessen, benchwarmer Vorm...

What about Depay?

Only hope for 2020 is to focus on U21 or U18 team developing into something, and they really should ask robben, sneijder and RvP to retire already...
