I think it got swallowed in the tides of the eternal.
But oh well, a new season, a new start.

PSV are a bit shambolic as well. First league game we played 3-3 against VVV who've just been promoted.
New players still getting used to one another, I think.

The big Turkish clubs are just flat-out kerrazy though. One day they get raped 5-0, the next they're masters of the universe.

right?

but seriously

look at this defense


Gokhan - Onder - Bilica - Vederson


Gokhan is awesome.
Onder is decent at best.
Bilica is the worst excuse for a defender I have ever seen.
Vederson is decent, but he's a left winger.

I wish Lugano would fucking resign. We'll finish last in the fucking Europa League with Bilica.

but i'm happy with guiza! he has like, 3 goals in 2 assists in 3 matches so far this season.

i haven't followed PSV lately. what's their lineup looking like?

No alternatives for Bilica and Onder then?

We bought Orlando Engelaar (controlling mid), Stanislav Manolev (right back), and André Ooijer came back.
So now we look like thisss:

Isaksson

Manolev - Ooijer - Marcellis - Pieters

Engelaar - Simons

Amrabat - Afellay - Dzsudzsák

Toivonen



I like Engelaar, but I really hate it that Otman Bakkal has ended up on the bench again. He deserves better.

i don't even recognize half that team :(

do like that ooijer and marcellis in the back though, as well as isaksson in goal.

as for bilica and onder, the only other backup we have at center back is bekir irtegun, whos no better than either player.

we also have edu dracena, who i love, but it appears he might be released because he's having injury problems.


Volkan
Gokhan - Onder - Bilica - Vederson
Emre - Cristian
Kazim - Alex - Santos
Guiza


pretty much what we've been playing so far. our attack looks really strong, and the two new brazilians are out of this world, but our defense still pisses me off. we could be so much better.

Yeah, I heard Edu Dracena is going the way of Appiah. Pity.

I think Güiza just needed to sort out his woman trouble and settle in properly. Topscorer for this season?

Real want to buy Ribéry next season.

What the fuck are they doing?

Casillas

Ramos - Albiol - Metzelder - Arbeloa

Ronaldo - Ribéry - Kaká

Higuaín - Raúl - Benzema


Midfield looks like Swiss cheese to me.

Our new coach Fred Rutten has balls.

Away vs FC Twente, we equalise 1-1 in the 25h minute, and he immediately replaces Marcellis (def) with Koevermans (striker). So far it's turning out pretty good.

Güiza really is back in business, eh?


Btw, Twente - PSV remained 1-1.
Isaksson blundered yet again to let the opening goal in:

Incredible that this is supposedly the best that an entire country (Sweden) can bring.


Next opponent: Ajax.

real have to realise that the cliche that "defense wins championships" is true. i mean, compare that backline to what Barca had last season.

Dani Alves > Ramos
Abidal > Arbeloa
Puyol > Metzelder
Pique > Albiol

switch Abidal for Maxwell now and they are much better, not to mention Iniesta + Xavi > Cristina + Kaka...crazy

guizaaaaaa scored 2 goals in a match that lasted 2 days. this dude is on fire, and i know the reason why:

hes got 5 goals in 3 games so far this season. i hope he keeps this shit up and that girl stays with him or else hes gonna stop scoring :(


PSV vs Ajax, i have to catch a stream of that.

More importantly, his insane gypsy witch mother needs to not hate her and put curses on her. Otherwise Dani will eventually get upset and stop banging them in.

#2
http://psv.supporter...tgebreid&id=295

Pfff. No doubt he's playing Premier League in a year or two from now..
He also prepared Bakkal's first goal by dribbling around and through three Ajax defenders. :clapping:

Shucks, looks like we'll have to deal with the Jews without half of our defence.
Ooijer, Marcellis and Manolev can't play vs Bnei Yehuda. Shouldn't be too much of a problem anyway.

Damn those were nice. second one reminds me of van hooijdonk and how he used to score from those angles :')

Lugano resigned for 4 years! only downside is that now they're going to release Edu because we're going to have too many foreigners. fucking dandy.

speaking of nice goals...

True, true. Reminds me of that inswinger he did for Feyenoord vs Freiburg once.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ooUOdDDtsac

Man, we've not had a free kick taker like this since the days of Luc Nilis.
Also, here he is preparing the 2-2 by Bakkal:
http://psv.supporter...rzicht&pagina=1

Gold or what..?

And for comedy value, here's the 0-1.. thanks to our useless goalie:
http://psv.supporter...rzicht&pagina=1

How the fuck is he the best that all of Sweden has to offer??

Lugano resigned


Oh no! :mellow:

for 4 years!


Ah, right.. :pardon:

only downside is that now they're going to release Edu because we're going to have too many foreigners. fucking dandy.


I forgot: how many foreigners are there allowed in a Turkish side?
The FIFA/UEFA are probably going to introduce the not-so-many-foreigners rule soon anyway, so it's probably for the best if clubs prepare themselves for that moment.

speaking of nice goals...

Sweet.. I miss having a crazy, creative Brazilian in our attack these days. But those are very hard to afford for us now, so we're focussing on less harvested markets in Eastern Europe and Asia.

The Turkish rule is that you're allowed 8 foreigners to be registered. In the league matches, only 6 can be fielded at a time. Oh yeah, and foreigners are players that aren't Turkish. So basically, every team in TSL must have at least 10 Turks in the match squad. I'd like to see Arsenal have 10 Englishmen in their entire squad :rolleyes:

There was talk of giving Edu the Appiah treatment but I don't really feel like going through that again :\



Check out the goal at 2:35 :')

Love the way Dzsudzsak split those two defenders haha. Looks like you've found someone who is damn good.

But wtf was that Isaksson? Damn. Let's hope that we don't see much more of that...
