So for the Europe League it's hard to say, but probably the final will be Groningen - Feyenoord I predict.

As for the promotion and relegations, probably De Graafschap and Roda will at least qualify for the 2nd round but when they face teams like Cambuur, Zwolle, Excelsior or RKC it will be harder, but still I see the Eredivisie teams survive... but no one knows.

Monday evening lol (yes cup final) but the idea of having football in de Kuip on that day

Guess we could all ourselves favourites for the play-offs. Groningen have been out of form for the last couple of months, while NAC and Utrecht have had indifferent form too. That said after our game today you can't take anything for granted either, especially if Henk, Tim and Kelvin have to act as starters.

Luckily we got Jon Dahl back. Bruins today lol (sad to see but he only has himself to blame)

Dord gestoord!!!! :proud:
TOP Oss-FC Dordrecht 0-2
FC Dordrecht heeft een eerste stap gezet naar de tweede ronde van de nacompetitie, waar Roda JC als tegenstander wacht. De ploeg van trainer Gert Kruys boekte een 2-0 overwinning op TOP Oss. Hoewel de Brabanders in de eerste helft beter voor de dag kwamen, was de zege verdiend. FC Dordrecht was doortastender en bevestigde dat na rust met twee treffers. Eddy Putter tekende voor de openingstreffer en Marcel van der Sloot verdubbelde de marge in de slotfase met een schitterende vrije trap.


Roda is going down :stuckup:

The sides that were in the top half of the standings all the time, so the best candidates also to the tickets to Europe.

As they needed an extra third match they've spend a lot more energy that's because I can't see them beating Roda...

At home they're strong though, so who knows what could happen after a home victory on Sunday...
