Eredivisie 14/15: Kampionuhhhhhhh!

Believe it or not the Eredivisie has already started with Zwolle beating Utrecht 2-0 last night.

Our campaign kicks off on Sunday at 16:45 in my former home Tilburg where we will play the Jupiler League champions Willem II. Very much the "forgotten" Noord-Brabant derby with NAC being despised more by both clubs. Unlike most games in Tilburg, this one should generate a good atmosphere.

Predicted Line-up:

Zoet

Arias - Bruma - Hendrix - Ritzmaier

Hiljemark

Wijnaldum - Maher

Narsingh - de Jong - Memphis

There has not been a lot of optimism surround our squad this pre-season. Many people say we need at least 2-3 players to compete for the title, others point to the fact that we have not won the Eredivisie in 6 years and that Ajax have won the last 4 in a row.

Nevertheless together with Ajax and Twente we are the favourites this season so lets get things going with 3 points on the board!

Some suprises in the line-up:

Zoet
Brenet - Bruma - Hendrix- Tamata
Hiljemark
Wijnaldum - Maher
Locadia - De Jong - Depay

So no Narsingh, Cocu prefers Locadia on the right wing. Very unexpected. Arias isn't fit enough to start i guess.

Let's do this.. i don't care how, just get the three points!

With Ajax and Feyenoord on 3 points we need to get on the board as well!

Arias probably being not fit enough is strange considering he played less than Gini and Memphis at the WC

I'm a fan of Locadia but he is no winger! I can't see how you can play an out and out 9 as a RW. Cocu did a similar thing with playing Park there at the beginning of last season (also not a traditional winger) but this makes even less sense!

Bakkali will surely start then if he does in fact sign that extension.

Howler from Willem II's keeper, Locadia takes full advantage

I've been reading Brands/Cocu is not going to promote him to the first team immediately after signing an extension (if he does) saying he "needs to earn it" which I would fully expect him to do.

Mini Pelle Lamprou

and it's now over. 0-2 Depay


Lex Immers - Pace & power. Holland's #1 box to box player

Feyenoord forum - the place to talk about this phenomenon

Ronald Koeman "Oranje kan Immers goed gebruiken"

Fred Rutten "Feyenoord heeft Immers nodig"

Van Marwijk over Lex Immers: 'Stille kracht van Feyenoord'

John de Wolf “Dat is nou precies de aanjager, het ’etterbakkie’ in het veld dat Feyenoord in dit soort wedstrijden nodig heeft"

I'd want a penalty for that Depay push if I was up for Willem II...

Is Tamata even on the pitch? we have been defending awfully. Willem II have had 2 very good chances past 10 mins.

Willem II keeper sent off for taking Wijnaldum out of it in the box. Penalty. A goal here should 100% seal the 3 points.

So we've gotten the three points. Typical away game, with a confident opponent. PSV didn't look solid just yet, Willem 2 had the chances to score one or two more.

Tamata and Brenet are Willem 2 quality imo. Luckily Willems, Arias (and Rekik?) will come back soon. That would help a lot already.

Brenet is at least good physically (like Liegon for Ajax)

Tamata on the other hand

AD and ED both came up with the same line-up for our first home game of the season vs NAC Breda tonight at 18:30

Zoet

Arias - Bruma - Rekik - Tamata

Hendrix

Wijnaldum - Maher

Locadia - de Jong - Memphis

Big news is that Rekik starts at LCB after just 2 training sessions which forces Hendrix to move into CDM at the expense of Hiljemark. Locadia also retains his spot at RW over Narsingh

As said in another thread - NAC are amongst the bottom 6 sides (on paper) in the Eredivisie so anything less than 3 points will be a failure

Locadia moves to the middle a lot, creating space for Wijnaldum and Arias - two player who love to come forward. Locadia gave 2 assists + 2 goals in his last two games. That's not bad. He scored 9 times in his last 14 Eredivisie matches. It's far from ideal, but i can understand the decision to start with him. Narsingh needs to get his act together, in potential he is the better right winger.

Last time I trust Sky Sports for line-ups.

Apparently this game is on Sky Sports 5. Guessing they're making up for yesterday? p
