Another week, another loss. AZ came to De Kuip and caught Feyenoord on the break with 3 counter attack goals that started with our midfield losing the ball. Goals from Jorgensen (Toornstra assist) and Diemers kept it close. We are now 0-0-3 against Top Four opponents (Ajax, PSV, Vitesse, and AZ) and it will get worse, I predict.
Home match against PSV produced a 3-1 win. Feyenoord decided to play like our opponents: park the bus and hit them on the break, and it worked. Goals from Diemers (Geertruida assist), Berghuis (Haps), and Linssen (Toornstra) gave us all three points.
Week 22: 12-5-4 41 points
(Week 21 match rescheduled to later in month.)
After a lackluster opening 40 minutes, beat Willem II 5-0 on a fine second half performance. Linssen, Toornstra, and Berghuis each had a goal and an assist. Kokcu and Sinisterra also scored goals, and Diemers assisted on the first goal. Bijlow, back from injury, notched a rare clean sheet.
Week 23: 12-6-4 42 points
(Week 21 match rescheduled to Wednesday next week)
Went to Twente and gave up two goals in the first 15 minutes. Came back to draw it 2-2 with a rocket from Toornstra after a poor Twente clearance; and a penalty kick by Berghuis after Sinisterra was tripped in the box.
