UEFA Cup 1979-80

Hi, guys!.

This is the first time I write to my friends in the Netherlands.

I live in the northern shore of Spain, and I´m a football fan of Sporting de Gijón. Surely most of you remember the amusing matches that faced PSV and Sporting.

I´m trying to get from several sources a row of pictures, videos, press reports, personal data, etc about those matches from 1979-September-19th (Gijón) and 1979-October-3rd (Eindhoven). I was only 11 years old then, and now I´m longing for getting some good aid to my rememberings.

I´m sure you will help me. I offer you some pieces from my stuff.

See you later...

Welcome viamo,

That was long ago! At the moment i don't have any material about those matches or whatsoever, i will try to do some research tomorrow. For now, maybe you can ask your question here, there are loads of PSV supporters on that forum.

Thanks for your interest, Afellay.

I´m trying to browse on the forum you said. For the moment, it becomes difficult to me due to the Dutch words I find everywhere. But I´m still on the fight.

There is an English sub forum on there. You may try to create a topic there. Some people on there have a lot of knowledge and may have visited the game back then. I couldn't find anything about it on the internet. Succes with your search, i can imagine it's hard. p

Headlines

Good evening, Afellay.

I may say that I found a very useful web (www.voetbalstats.nl), where there are two headlines from the matches between PSV and Sporting de Gijón.

Would you, please, translate them into English?.

I´ve also seen some very beautiful photographs taken by Peter Smulders b.v., that show the PSV´s players in the 80´s.

Have a good night!.

The first headline says:
"PSV get themselves a good starting point against Spanish side Gijon with a 0-0 draw."

Second:
"Willy van de Kerkhof decided the match.
PSV into the second round thanks to concentration."

Thanks, boumavilla, for your translation.

The video about Bouma is very good. I can imagine as a real nightmare trying to score inside his goal.

That's alright.

He was a quality defender, especially at Villa when he played a massive role as our left-back.

Spanish headlines from 1979.

I share with your a headline of the Spanish press after Gijón´s match. It means:

Thursday, September 20th, 1979

PSV only defended itself.
0-0: Sporting didn´t have good luck.



The headline after Eindhoven´s match means:


Thursday, October 4th, 1979

The Asturian fastbreak didn´t work.
1-0: R. VAN DER KERKHOF GAVE DEATH TO SPORTING.
In the last minute, Ferrero was tackled down in the Dutch box.


Enjoy them.

Haven´t somebody got any picture, video or press report from those matches of 1979?.

Thanks in advance.

These are the lines-up from the matches PSV vs. Sporting de Gijón in the UEFA´s Cup 1979-80.

Of course, PSV was a huge squad then, full of international players and some legendary men.

Sporting had its best squad in all history, and in September and October was the leader of the Spanish league, looking on his rear mirror the faces of Real Madrid´s and Barça´s players.

I´m not sure to have put acquaratedly the Dutch footballers on the pitch.

May anybody mend my possible mistakes?.

And I´d love to see any photo from those matches from 1979, or to read the Dutch press referring them.

Thanks a lot.

Nice to see those old pics of the team. That PSV was indeed quite full of international players. Although they weren't the real stars for Oranje, most of them still featured in the WC 78 final. Where Jan van Beveren should have played as well.

Were there Spanish internationals in the Gijon squad?

Sporting had a certain number of international players, although only a few names are well known outside the borders of Spain.

The goalkeeper Castro and the midfielder David were Olympic internationals.

Right back Redondo, Argentinian central defender Doria, and midfielder Andrés were international on the young teams.


For the national “A” team did play:

- The sweeper Maceda (37 caps and 8 goals), a man who signed for Real Madrid and were injured on the time Sporting faced PSV.
- The Argentinian central defender Rezza (5 caps), also injured then.
- The central defender Jiménez (1 cap)
- The left back Cundi (9 caps), also injured then.
- The midfielder Mesa (2 caps and 1 goal).
- The midfielder Joaquín (19 caps and 1 goal).
- The midfielder Uría (14 caps and 1 goal), who spent several years in Real Madrid.
- The right winger Aguilar (3 caps and 1 goal), who also played for Real Madrid.
- The Argentinian left winger Ferrero (3 caps and 1 goal), a legend in Boca Juniors.
- The striker Quini (35 caps and 8 goals), who played for F.C. Barcelona.

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.


Cheers.
