Can't really understand what happened to the Dutch. OK, the group was tough and losing against us is no shame. But wtf was that pathetic display against Denmark and why can't they beat Portugal after leading?
Must be something wrong with attitude or coaching.
Defense is poor as fuck. No one player is playing for a top team.
Van der Wiel: Ajax, but has been utter shit all season long
Mathijssen: Malaga, has never been world class and is past 30 years. No real killer
Heitinga: Everton, three crucial errors in the first two matches, has been sacrifed today for
Vlaar: Feyenoord, will never play for a top team, he's good enough for the Dutch league but not on high European level
Willems: just 18 years old. Might gonna make it but this came way too early.
Bouma: PSV, way past his prime
And that's it.
Plus, van Persie and Robben were piss poor. So yeah, there's your Euro 2012.
Van Bommel and De Jong didn't do what they're supposed to do: win battles in midfield. All of the Dutch players we're standing on the pitch like apathetic zombies, three matches in a row.
We totally deserved two penalties against Denmark so maybe if we had won that match, the other two would have gone differently. But now, it was just plain fucking terrible.
I predicted Germany - Spain as the final with Germany as the winner. I still believe that's going to happen.
