Belgium sucks as much as my netherlands right now. they shouldn't have been ranked over Germany, Colombia or Argentina for that matter. 

 

but on a side note we (netherlands) beat an on-form Poland team. :lol:

i still believe if we can train the youngsters like with RVP, Sneijder, Robben, et al. we can look to qualify for Russia. bc RVP is past prime, Sneijder is at his prime, and Robben (if healthy) has a a WC left in him possibly or at least a few more years.

The Netherlands team is kinda at that transition phase, where the young players aren't quite experienced enough and the old players are, well, old.  In a few years time with a good youth program they could easily be back up to where they have been in recent years.

that's why it's important for them to get the youngsters signed to like the Premier league, Bundesliga, La Liga, Serie A, etc.

I couldn't believe that sending off in the England vs Portugal game. How on Earth did he get his foot up that high?!

On another note, the football team I support is Newcastle United. I can't understand why we didn't get Benitez in sooner... :mad:

I know where Kosovo is. xD The population in Kosovo is a lot more than at the Faroe Islands though. They usually lose all their matches. :lol:

haha yeah. i hope they actually can thrive. then again like a lot of the smaller European countries that constantly lose 6+ nil probably don't have professional soccer on a level to the bigger names. wish that could change. can you imagine a lot of San Marino's players actually get contracts, and to improve their national team. you know how silly it would look if SM beat the likes of England or spain? :lol: but with Norway i thought Iceland was gonna win tbh. Norway is getting better i feel.

Iceland is awful. If we hadn't won that one I would have laughed so hard. :lol: They have started to use younger players and done some changes, it looks better, but they still have a long way to go.

Honestly, I don't care too much. I've never liked our national team. They have never played entertaining football. But it seems like the younger players want to change that, so we'll see. :)

I would love to visit a game of my favourite team again. Hopefully I can make it happen during the next season.

I don't understand why we (Arsenal) are going after Vardy.  One season hasn't made him an amazing striker.  He was so successful because he worked well as part of Leicester's attacking unit and partnered up nicely with Mahrez.  He just won't be able to replicate that in an Arsenal team, not to mention he's now overpriced.  Wenger's normally a sensible guy, but I think he's making a mistake here.

yeah I agree. Arsenal isn't right for Vardy.

I was surprised when I saw that Arsenal are after him, I don't think it would be a wise move. If he leaves Leicester I'd imagine a few Leicester players would be wanting to leave.
