Having the lights go out as happened in Rotterdam yesterday so the match is abandoned.
Match postponed for bad weather or hooliganism
There was a week in which in three matches the lights went out in the EPL. At the third match they caught a Chinese in the spark plugs room yanking them out.
It turned out that a Chinese gambling syndicate was behind it to get the matches frozen, which in the rules of that gambling bunch ment it was a draw.
Isnot Benfica under investigation after info leaked in that Der Spiegel article?
Yeah, but I don't think the projections take that into account.
Benfica could be banned, or not?
What is the issue here? I tried finding something but couldn't; is there a link?
EDIT: Never mind, I found the Der Spiegel article though it was just a one line statement with no further details. It seems as though those issues are for the Portugal FA to address. Given the popularity of Benfica they might be covered up.
Nice article in The Guardian.
In the Der Spiegel article it was mentioned that based on the leaked documents Benfica is being scrutinized by the authorities for iirc from that article money laundering, match fixing etc. But look it up in that article I posted.
I screwed up big time and ended up paying for the October Benfica match replay. I thought something looked funny and then I figured out at the half that it was deja vu all over again. I missed the Benfica goal where Onana messed up but he came up big in the second half. Defense did just enough to hold on but things need to really be tightened up. I don't think Schöne was helpful at all in the second half and maybe ten Hag should consider subbing him off and moving Blind up to holding MF.
No player ratings as I only saw the 2nd half!!!
I was at that game too
Just sent the link to my wife to get the convo going
The different scenarios: https://www.telegraaf.nl/sport/2780...ons-league-scenario-s-voor-ajax-op-een-rijtje
This is gonna cost us. Uefa is looking into it:
Training ground football for much of the 2nd half and Ajax end up with an easy 1-7 win. de Ligt had a chance to be the first field player to start ten straight matches where Ajax kept a clean sheet (injured for the PSV debacle) and would have joined Edgar Davids and Marc Overmars who did it in the historic 1985 season. It wasn't to be as he messed up with his challenge allowing the Excelsior player to get in on Onana's goal. There was some more sloppy defending later in the match and maybe ten Hag's habit of not rotating players is having an effect. No match next week because of the international break.
Onana (6.5) - didn't have much to do and the conceded goal was well taken
Tagliafico (7) - did some good offensive work going forward
Blind (7) - decent enough on the day
de Ligt (6.5) - good other than the one poor challenge
Mazraoui (6) - just above average in the one half of football he played
Schöne (7) - very nice free kick and the pace of this match suited him well
de Jong (7) - looks like he hurt the same hip he injured mid week against Benfica
van de Beek (7.5) - two well taken goals for my MOTM
Tadic (7) - solid game again
Dolberg (7) - looked very good up front
Ziyech (7) - nice match
Kristensen (6.5) - still not convinced he is a good defender but he is more than decent going forward
Neres (6.5) - good to see him on the scoreboard for the first time in league competition
Huntelaar (6) - did everything right in his short stint at the end of the match
Away to NAC in a fortnight and then the big away CL game with AEK with an opportunity to lock up a knock out match place, something we have not seen in over a decade.
It was ridicilous how Excelsior managed/was given the chance to score 4 more times and thanks to bad aiming and Onana they only had one goal against.
I'd like to see vdBeek get the start against France
This happens in almost every Eredivisie match I watch. There is a lot of sketch defense from every team.
Frenkie De Jong and Donny Vd Beek... that's my dream pairing in the engine room! Two boys that should have a good understanding in each other, and are complementary from skillset standpoints. FDJ can orchestra the attack from deep in his own half, and VDB can supply the goals upfront. It wasn't feasible early in the season because Vd Beek was rusty and out of form, but now that he's firing in all cylinders, this is becoming real! Add a tenacious, energetic and experienced Gino Wijnaldum, I think Koeman will have a solid midfield!! Problem solved.
I couldnt agree more. Once the midfield is set in stone all we need is maybe a winger and a world-class striker to complement Depay
