I just thought, maybe Bowie is saving 'Win' for his return to England. It can be the official Euro 2004 song!!

Football and a 'Friends' quote new [re: Nature_Boy]  

Let's hope he sings it too in Amsterdam, the day after tomorrow, and that the Dutch team steals some luck from the English. God knows we need it more then they do.

The European Tour is about to start. Let's hope Bowie's has something very special cooked up for his first date, because, well, I'll be there!!!!

I'm so happy!

Re: Football and a 'Friends' quote new [re: NoGame]  

What's up with the Dutch team anyway? Incredible players in the squad, but they looked appalling against a weakened Irish side. On the radio this morning I heard Advocaat is considering dropping Van Nistleroy???

Hopefully they'll come good on the big stage.

Slan libh,

Return to Total Football new [re: Dara]  

Hm. I haven't heard any rumour about Van Nistelrooij not playing. Although I admit he's not in the greatest shape. Roy Makaay could be a good alternative, especially against the Germans next Tuesday. He knows how to handle a German defense, as he has proven quite a few times with Munich this season.

But no forward can function without a team that is willing to give him or place him in a situation he can score. And that's what's been lacking the past weeks against Belgium and Ireland: a wrong system, with some players not fullfilling their tasks. Anyway, it has caused Advocaat to return to the well know 4-3-3 system the Dutch are famous about. In this system they reached the EC, and this is the right choice, even if some players for the wing positions are not entirely fit. It's a good thing Germany is up first, so they are immediately ready for one hell of a job (even though the Germans seem as weak as the Dutch).

Fact: Dutch national television spent a whole night about the World Championship of 1974 this week, including a total rerun of the legendary 'Total Football' semifinal against Brazil. Ratings have shown that a quarter of a million people watched that rerun...which was broadcast at 1.30 am!! (Holland has 16 million people living here).

What was this thread about again?

Forgotten Fact new [re: NoGame]  

In reply to:

And did they show the 2nd half goal Gerd Müller was disallowed in the final? Would have been the 3:1 but for some unknown reason the referee decided it wass off side. That fine goal is normally forgotten when the Dutch go on about the alledged diver that gave Germany the penalty and the subsequent equalizer in that game. Strangely enough most Germans have forgotten about that incorrectly disallowed goal too.

Anyway, I think we need a new footie thread.

Do you remember 1988? new [re: EJSunday]  

In reply to:

Don't know, didn't watch. I have a very short attention span. The program started at 20.30 and went on until 2.00 am. That was a little too much for me.

It was a wrong choice anyway to highlight the WC 1974. It was supposed to put a spotlight at the upcoming clash between Holland and Germany. But, since this is a game at the EC, wouldn't it have been a better choice to highlight another very memorable confrontation between these two countries? I say semi final, EC, 1988.

AAAARGH ! new [re: EJSunday]  

We're talking EC history damn it !

The WC can be discussed in two years!!!! (When the Dutch will finally grab the title, because in Germany they always go well: 1974 and 1988).
