  1. Happy New Home Year EREDIVISIE & KNVB BEKER Three pretty tight home games there in January. We scrape through in the KNVB Beker against Heracles after penalties, then win against VVV, then lose against PSV. All in all not bad for us as we keep up with the pace in the league and got through to the quarter finals just to be pitted against some old rival: EREDIVISIE 6th and one game in hand. NEWS Seriously contemplating about signing JIZZ Hornkamp as I´ve just seen what he can do: His contract is running out
  2. Thanks mate But I don´t think that can happen so fast... Zwolle is still such a small club with a tight budget...
  3. You Didn´t Come This Far To Only Come This Far EREDIVISIE & EUROPA CONFERENCE LEAGUE The results are improving and we are scoring more now it seems. Especially Blackburn seems to have "clicked". In the KNVB Beker we fielded some kind of a 2nd string players team but won nevertheless against 2nd division Dordrecht. The game against Legia was one for the spectators: With both teams already qualified it was some scoring bonanza. We did not lose a game this month. Hope it continues. Top of the group! Not bad for first-timers. Our next opponent i
  4. Hello November Please Be Kind EREDIVISIE & EUROPA CONFERENCE LEAGUE A good showing against PSV but we still lose in the end. The rest of the month consists of draws. The only win predictably comes against the Red Imps, which seals our qualification for the knockout rounds. EREDIVISIE We lost some ground on the top clubs but that has never been our target.
  5. The Clear Light That Belongs To October EREDIVISIE & EUROPA CONFERENCE LEAGUE No defeat this month! Our self confidence shows with a great understanding of our very attacking tactics. Ok, the opposition was not that scary but you have to win those games in the first place. The win against minnows Red Imps sees us go top of our group in the ECL: EREDIVISIE We move closer to the top but I know this is only the beginning of the season. NEWS Arenchelo Leito is not yet good enough to help the first team and is therefore r
  6. the pirate on the outlook of the pirate ship in the Asterix books Tintin has a lot of racism (prime example Tintin in the Congo) Spike & Suzy (Suse & Wiske in original) comes to mind as well Oh and don´t get me started with Disney Obvious racism was there all the time...
  7. Making It A September To Remember (Not Quite) EREDIVISIE & EUROPA CONFERENCE LEAGUE There´s the first defeat of the season, but no need to be too depressed - we were able to score 2 goals against Feyenoord with our attacking style. The same happened in Copenhagen where we held FC Kobenhavn to an impressive draw. Next were 2 bottom of the league clubs, but those games are harder than those against the big ones as they park the bus so heavily. In the end we came out winning both, against Groningen we were lucky, against FC Eindhoven not so much. The result does not refl
  8. The Secret Of Getting Ahead Is Getting Started EREDIVISIE & EUROPA CONFERENCE LEAGUE What is going on here? Am unbelievable start to the season! I suspect it is down to the Europa League euphoria and that I finally changed our tactics to "Very Attacking"... We score but we also concede a lot when we play with this tactic (which we did apart from the 2nd legs in the Europa League). One sure fact is that Rolando Blackburn is starting to score for us and El Mahdioudi is providing him with great assists. Even Jaeckel already scored two goals. With that courageous approach
  9. A Whole New Team Goalkeepers It is obvious who is the master and the servants here. Apart from the odd cup game maybe. Defenders Jaeckel is a massive addition to our defence. He will have to lead alongside veteran Lam. Arciero on the right and Paal on the left sounds good on paper. But there is a lot of talent here to step in and make their marks. Midfielders Strieder is still the king in our midfield, but El Mahdioui threatens his throne. Both will play of course. There is some nice competition for the last place in central mid
  10. Summer Time And The Living Is Easy A lot of players have left us. We will miss our captain Bram van Polen the most. Reza Ghoochannejhad is also gone, but he was already 33 years old. Keeper Xavier Mous didn´t want to play second fiddle to our new keeper and let his contract run out. Winger Virgil Misidjan was looking for a new challenge and never really found a home here. We needed to react and bring in new quality players. Besides Jaeckel and Vido we signed these players: Aschraf El Mahdioui Signed from Slovakian club AS Trencin, the 25 year old Ajax academy
  11. Season Summary Steven Rivadeneyra was definitely our signing of the season. Well he was the only signing as well though, but nevertheless he helped to tighten our defence and so was heavily responsible for our great league finish. Player of the season must go to Thomas Buitnink, who scored 17 goals and also became top scorer of the Eredivisie. A pity he did not want to extend his loan and we were also not able to buy him. Captain Bram van Polen had the most assists although mostly playing as a right back. Sad thing is, he did not want to extend his contract and
  12. A Photo Finish EREDIVISIE A comfortable win against Sparta Rotterdam sent us on the right track and the draw against Groningen could have been a win easily but damn this last game of the season! If we at least snatched a point, we would have finished 3rd! But it wasn´t to be. Alas, 4th place is great for a club like us. EREDIVISIE We gloriously finish 4th and will play in Europe next season! NEWS We bring in a new Head Of Youth Development in Huib Ibie. He exceeds our old one in almost all attributes
  13. Jinxed! EREDIVISIE @Deisler26must have jinxed us! We lose our first game in months against RKC Waalwijk of all clubs! Then again I guess this must have happened some time and in secret I am glad it happened as it takes some pressure from us. A very dominating performance against Twente provides us with 3 points and the game against last placed Sittard was easy as soon as Buitink broke the lock. EREDIVISIE Still 4th. Heracles is hot on our tails. NEWS This is what our Youth Intake looks this year. We don´t complain
  14. Marching On In March EREDIVISIE Buitink saves the month once more. We manage not to lose and collect 7 points in march. That AZ draw was a very lucky one for us as they dominated possession and the whole game, but we managed to break through once on the counter and scored. EREDIVISIE We move up to 4th! Who would have thought that before this seaons. Surely I didn´t. NEWS We wrap up 2 new signings for next season: Both are coming on a free transfer as their contracts run out. Paul Jaeckel is a 22 year old German cen
  15. When The Going Gets Tough The Tough Get Going EREDIVISIE A great month results-wise. We managed not to lose against the two top teams of the league and won our other fixtures against lesser opposition. We were of course lucky against Willem II, when we scored the winner in injury time but the was just the reward for our hard work until the end. Buitink continues to score and the fear of not having him in our team next season grows. I really hope we can make his move permanent or at least loan him out again. EREDIVISIE With 42 points, it is unl
  16. Welccome @Deisler26 The last match against RKC was a draw, so we both could be ok with that right?
  17. A New Year EREDIVISIE January didn´t go as smooth as the months before. We lost 3 games but I guess that´s not unusual against this opposition. At least we beat Heracles and Vitesse. EREDIVISIE Still in 5th place. And still a lot of matches to be played. NEWS We brought in a new keeper in January for 450K from Allianza Lima Steven Rivadeneyra is the current national team keeper of Peru The 26 year old is a lot better than our current keepers including Mous His best attributes are his bravery (16
  18. Living In A Winter Wonderland EREDIVISIE & KNVB BEKER We trashed VVV in a wonderful game orchestrated by Mustafa Saymak at the beginning of the month. The following draw against Waalwijk was well earned in the 90th minute when super-sub Reza scored the equalizer. In the KNVB Beker we gave favorites Ajax a hard fight, but the defeat was inevitable as we ran out of steam in extra time. Maybe this fatique was the reason behind our loss against Heerenveen 5 days later. At least we were able to recover from that with a win against Willem II, a nice christmas gift.
  19. Back To Reality EREDIVISIE We could not stop in-form Heracles. This must have been our worst game of the season yet - we created not one clear chance and only had one shot on goal. Den Haag was a different matter - we dominated the game and the scoreline does not at all reflect what happened on the pitch. Though the timing of our winning goal seems lucky it was more than deserved as we squandered so many clear chances before. 3 points after all, all good. Then we drew against Feyenoord who are 3rd at the moment. Our defending was top-notch again. This is how you play aga
  20. A Golden October EREDIVISIE & KNVB BEKER What a month. We managed to score 10 points in 4 matches, including a massive win against AZ. And it should be clear now who is our striker number one: Thomas Buitink scored 6 goals, showing his class. A pity he is only playing on loan for us. If he continues scoring, we should make this move permanent definately. In the KNVB Beker, we managed to defeat second division outfit Cambuur but man that was a tough game! They parked the bus and gave us something to think about but Misidjan scored with a long range effort and that sett
  21. Welcome @SixPointer You are absolutely right. My first time with a dutch club and it´s big fun! I always found Zwolle a kinda "cute" club so now it´s the time to make them become great (maybe)
