The Ajax soap is getting more and more ridiculous. Johan Derksen, Piet Keizer, Guus Hiddink,

EINDHOVEN, Netherlands PSV Eindhoven took the lead in the Dutch Eredivisie with a 4-1 win over NAC

football, look no further than this weekend's shocking upset PSV Eindhoven beat the once-giant
Kelvin Leerdam received his marching orders soon after PSV had taken lead. Some resolute
defending by the De club aan de Maas kept the score line at a respectable 2-0 as the two
teams went in for halftime.
The Dutch Eredivisie Review on ESPN has become one of the 'must watch' TV programmes in my
household on a weekly basis. I don't know quite what it is that endears me to Dutch football ahead
of watching, say, the Bundesliga or La Liga, but watching promising players on the way up (and some
geniuses on the way down) is somehow more interesting that watching household names at the peak of
In weekend no. 3 one of the first six classics was programmed: PSV-Ajax in Eindhoven. A defeat at

step closer to becoming our new left-back as PSV boss Fred Rutten is almost conceding defeat in
Fred Rutten's PSV hadn't lost a game in 39 matches. And with PSV leading the tables and Feyenoord
yet again disappointing last week, it seemed the Rotterdam team would be left empty-handed, yet
again, in the cup's quarter final. Feyenoord coach Been had made some changes again. Jonathan de
In the last ten days, we've been focusing on Brilliant Orange! And what a news we had... But let's
quickly drum up all the news items we missed from other Dutch football topics... Fred Rutten is out
at Schalke and will be the new PSV coach. Dwight Lodeweges, currently in charge and
OK so we're only two games in but could we be seeing the early signs of how the new Bundesliga
season is going to shape up? At the end of last season, most pundits believed that Wolfsburg might
dip somewhat following their magnificent success last season and the inevitable departure of their
best forwards, not to mention that of Svengali coach Felix Magath.
For the second week running the Bundesbag begins with off-the-pitch shenanigans. Last week we
considered the dramatic removal of Jurgen Klinsmann as Bayern coach. This week, the Bundesliga
headlines are dominated by the sensational news of league leaders Wolfsburg's manager Felix Magath
who will join Schalke at the end of the season.

Mir steht es fern über Schalke zu urteilen. Aber man muss sich doch schon mal darüber
unterhalten, was da gerade so abgeht. Nach der Entlassung des Managers darf nun auch der aktuelle
Trainer vorzeitig in Urlaub gehen. Ich zitiere von der offiziellen Webseite: Josef Schnusenberg,
Vorstands-Vorsitzender des FC Schalke 04, teilte dem 46-Jährigen diesen Beschluss in einem [.
Schalke 04 coach Fred Rutten was very excited after a won game over Eintracht Frankfurt (1-2). 'I'm

Schalke advanced to the round of 16 of the DFB Cup with a convincing 2-0 victory over Hannover
tonight. Heiko Westermann scored both goals as Fred Rutten's men were just too good for the
injury-riddled Reds. And while this game continues a good run of form for the Gelsenkirchen club,
1. Assholes Anonymous Hi my name is Rafinha and I am an asshole. For a team that has some very
likeable and fair-minded players in Neuer, Kuranyi and Westermann, there seems to be a need to
offset it with a player like Rafinha. The sooner the fat Rafa from Liverpool buys little Rafa and
takes his [.
So, Blaise Nkufo (pronounced Kufo, often misspelled N'Kufo) will soon be a Sounder. I'm only
