Dear friends, I have some doubts.
I´m not sure if Stevens used to play as a right back, or on the midfield.
About Poortvliet, was him a heavy working midfielder, with a defensive role, besides Willy Van de Kerkhof?. Or was him able to create the offensive movements?.
And Valke seemed not to be high enough to play in a Dutch midfielder line. Was him a though player, or just an artist?.
I have read about Koster as a right winger. Was this true?.
The line-up from October 3 rd, 1979, at Philips Stadion, seems to be very offensive. Used PSV to play that way then?.
My last trouble is called Van der Kuijlen. I know that he was a very great scorer, a world class striker, but I think he didn´t play on top but helping the midfielders. Is this true?.
I don´t understand either why sometimes I find his name as Van der Kuylen. This happens with Van Kraaij / Van Kray too. I suppose that there is a language mystery impossible to my Spanish brain to understand…
About the moustaches of the Spanish players, I believe they are due to the industrial and working-class way of live in Gijón in 1979. A place with lots of works and a very big harbour. A city with a strong trade-unions movement and lots of socialist voters, still today.
