    The ties that bind United, Feyenoord, Fenerbahçe
    Published: Friday 26 August 2016, 15.30CET
    Draws always throw up some close associations, but the links that bind Group A rivals Feyenoord, Manchester United and Fenerbahçe are remarkable – just ask Robin van Persie.

    Van Persie's career comes together

    Rotterdam-born Robin van Persie scored 14 goals in 61 league games for Feyenoord at the start of his career, lifting the 2002 UEFA Cup on home soil. He also struck 48 times in 86 Premier League matches during three seasons with Manchester United, with whom he landed the 2012/13 Premier League title (what's more, he hit four against them while at Arsenal, including a consolation in an 8-2 defeat in 2001). He joined Fenerbahçe last summer.

    Rooney's 2004 debut hat-trick v Fenerbahçe

    Rooney's Old Trafford fireworks
    Current captain Wayne Rooney, then only 18, claimed a hat-trick against Fenerbahçe on his Manchester United and UEFA Champions League debut in the 2004 group stage. The Turkish team gained some revenge in the matchday six return but by then they were already guaranteed to finish second. Rooney is the sole survivor of those fixtures, though Volkan Demirel was an unused substitute for Fenerbahçe.

    Kuyt connections
    Dirk Kuyt, now 36, spent three years with Fenerbahçe before rejoining Feyenoord 12 months ago. He previously had six seasons representing United's rivals Liverpool and once scored a treble against them in a 3-1 league victory in March 2011. Another Anfield old boy, Australian Brad Jones, is first-choice keeper at Feyenoord this term.

    Mouth-watering taster
    Ukrainian group stage debutants Zorya, the 1972 Soviet champions, have played just seven European ties. One of them came against Feyenoord: a UEFA Europa League play-off thriller two summers ago. After a 1-1 draw in Kyiv, Zorya were heading through with the score 3-3 in the second leg, until Elvis Manu's 92nd-minute clincher.

  4. This evenings derby against fellow city club Excelsior was won again, so Brad still goes unbeaten on top of the table. Unfortunately he lost his clean sheet as one goal slipped passed him.
     
  5. And still undefeated, after the 3-1 win against FC Den Haag.
    Now coming thursday the clash with ManUnited. Liverpool fans cannot wait to see former Pudlians Brad and Dirk hurt the enemy, at least they hope so.

    Todays match was also the scene of a heart warming action from both supporters groups. Seriously ill children from the Rotterdam "Sophia Kinder Ziekenhuis" were the special guests of Feyenoord today. When the FC Den Haag supportrs learned about that they spontaniously started the action to bring with them soft stuffed toy animals and throw them as a gift to the kids. This planned gesture was well received by the Feyenoord fans and they decided to join it.
    So these kids had a very good experience that probably made them for a few happy hours forget about their illness and most likely feeling on top of the world.

  6. Brad Jones kept a clean sheet and we did win 1-0 and for former Liverpool players Brad and Dirk that is so sweet...as it is for Liverpool fans to see ManUnited beaten by two former Pools.
     
    el-capitano repped this.
  7. And now we beat PSV away with 1-0. Brad made a crucial safe just ahead of the final whistle. So 7 wins in a row and again a clean sheet for our Aussie guy.
    We are now 5 points clear of and PSV, and Ajax and AZ.
     
    el-capitano repped this.
  8. The perfect path is continuing. 7th win in a row (plus 1 cup win and 1 EL win) 5-0 vs Roda JC. So Brad has another clean sheet.
     
  9. It is a row of matches in a short time as thursday 29 september, 21:05 CEST
    upload_2016-9-25_22-25-45.png Fenerbahçe-Feyenoord upload_2016-9-25_22-25-45.png is on the role and sunday the next league match.
     
  10. The EL match was lost with 1-0.
    But, a fat but....we won again in the league, 8 straight wins now, and good old Brad kept a clean sheet again!
    He's having the time of his life!

  11. We still are unbeaten in the league and kept Ajax at bay with 5 points margin. Unfortunately we should have been 3-0 in front at the break, but we didnot pull the trigger. Otherwise we would have been 8 points ahead.
    The cup fight was won against Excelsior 4-0. Another clean sheet.
     
  12. Brad Jones is in the UEFA star team of the qualifying round of the Europa League! Not bad for an Aussie!

    Balende Jones zet de boel bij Feyenoord op scherp: 'Ben er niet blij mee'
    zondag 12 februari 2017 om 12:52

    Brad Jones baalt ervan dat Feyenoord een grote kans weggaf aan FC Groningen. Het zat de doelman na de wedstrijd nog steeds dwars, ondanks dat hij een clean sheet hield en Feyenoord met 2-0 van de noorderlingen zag winnen.

    Ruben Jenssen kreeg voor rust echter wel een dikke kans, maar hij gleed de bal naast. "Zelfs nu, na de wedstrijd, ben ik er niet blij mee dat we zo’n kans hebben weggegeven", baalt Jones op de clubsite van Feyenoord. "Aan de andere kant weten we ook dat het onmogelijk is nooit meer een schot op doel tegen te krijgen, maar hoe minder kansrijk de tegenstander is, hoe beter wij het doen."

    "We zullen dus zeker nog goed naar dit moment kijken, om te voorkomen dat zoiets nog eens gebeurt", blijft Jones bij het moment. De Australiër hield voor de vijfde keer in 2017 de nul en was dáár wel blij mee. "Als keeper of als verdediger is het je doel om elke wedstrijd de nul te houden. Daar focussen we ons elke wedstrijd op, zodat de aanvallers voor ons de wedstrijd kunnen winnen. Als wij niks weggeven, is de kans groot dat we uiteindelijk de drie punten pakken."

    Sunday, February 12th, 2017 at 12:52

    Brad Jones is dismayed that Feyenoord gave away a great chance to FC Groningen. (It was) Still the keeper after the match was crossed, although he kept a clean sheet and Feyenoord saw them win 2-0 against the northerners.

    Ruben Jenssen got close to the break (rest), however, a big chance, but he slid the ball wide. "Even now, after the game, I'm not happy that we have given away such a chance," Jones fed up on the clubsite Feyenoord. "On the other hand, we also know that it is impossible never get to a shot, but the less promising the opponent is, the better we do it."

    "We will certainly have a good look at the moment, in order to prevent such a thing happening again," Jones continues at the moment. The Australian kept a clean sheet and was happy with it over there for the fifth time in 2017. "As a goalkeeper or defender is your goal every game to keep a clean sheet. We focus every game, so the attackers for us to win the game. If we give away anything, it's likely that we end the three some points. "

    Brad Jones moet bijna voor een camera of een microfoon worden getrokken, anders zou je de doelman van Feyenoord nauwelijks buiten het veld in beeld zien. De Australische sluitpost is dit seizoen een onverwachte topper onder de lat bij Feyenoord, maar claimt geen enkele faam of eer.

    Gek genoeg sprak Jones na afloop over een ’geweldige Bilal’, die in zijn ogen prachtige reddingen verrichtte in de slotfase, over verdedigers die in vorm waren en over een man als Karim El Ahmadi die in staat is om die spaarzame kans die Feyenoord kreeg te benutten. Niets over zichzelf.

    Blok
    Jones: "Ja, een ’clean sheet’, maar iedereen moet zijn job toch doen? Ik doe die van mij en reken erop dat de anderen hun job doen. Vandaag was het als ploeg niet zo spectaculair, maar we toonden aan dat we een blok vormden dat gewoon niet is te verslaan."

    "We weten allemaal dat we het ons zelf een stuk makkelijker hadden kunnen maken. Na de winter maken we niet meer zoveel doelpunten als in de periode daarvoor. Dat heeft ook met de tegenstanders te maken, de manier waarop zij zich gaan wapenen tegen ons. Dit was voor ons weer een job done. Maar zondag volgt de real big one."

    Brad Jones should almost be drawn for a camera or a microphone, or you would hardly see outside the image field in the Feyenoord keeper. The Australian final item this season is an unexpected hit under the crossbar at Feyenoord, but claims no fame or glory.

    Crazy Jones spoke enough after about a great Bilal ', which made stunning saves in his eyes in the final phase of supporters who were in shape and about a man as Karim El Ahmadi is able to sparse chance Feyenoord got use. Nothing about themselves.
    Block

    Jones: "Yes, a clean sheet, but everyone must do his job, I do mine and trust that the others do their job today was as a team not as spectacular, but we showed that we?. block formed that simply can not be beat. "

    "We all know that we can make ourselves had a lot easier. After the winter we are not as many goals as in the previous period. This also has to do with the opponents, the way they go armed against us. for us this was another job done. But Sunday follows the real big one.
