    He's in the Dutch top flight and scoring for a crappy team. What more can you ask? And he was injured for a few games.

    I like very stinky cheese! My bro went hiking in Germany when we lived in Marburg. Carried Limburger in his backpack for two weeks as a gift to my mom. He was not allowed in the house on his return

    It seems our guys do well enough in the Eredivisie, Scandinavian leagues, and if they are top shelf, the Bundesliga. I wonder if the playing style/pro soccer culture in the states meshes with these leagues somehow.

    The language diatribes we have in these threads makes me also believe it's related to that, too.

    The Eredivisie is the only place our forwards look good, for whatever reason.

    Fortuna Sittard hoopt zich komend weekend tegen NAC Breda te verzekeren van nog een seizoen in de Eredivisie. De Bredanaars moeten daarentegen juist alles op alles zetten om te voorkomen dat het doek vroegtijdig al valt. . .

    "We bekijken het stap voor stap", zegt Andrija Novakovich, spits van Fortuna Sittard, tegenover De Limburger. "Te beginnen met NAC thuis. Verder kijken heeft ook geen zin. En we hebben genoeg kwaliteit om erin te blijven. Ik geloof in Fortuna."

    Tegen VVV-Venlo (1-1) was Novakovich belangrijk met een treffer. "Ik maak een typische spitsengoal, dat was ook wel weer eens tijd. Maar daarna dachten we met 2-0 voor te komen en dan is er weer die VAR. Mij is verteld dat het wel buitenspel was, maar het duurt allemaal zo lang. Het is sowieso geen gelukkige combinatie de VAR en Fortuna, maar daar moeten we het maar niet te veel over hebben", besluit hij.

    Novakovich believes in Fortuna: "Starting with NAC at home"

    Fortuna Sittard hopes to secure another season in the Eredivisie against NAC Breda this weekend. The people of Breda, on the other hand, must do everything in their power to prevent the curtain from falling early.

    "We look at it step by step," says Andrija Novakovich, striker of Fortuna Sittard, to De Limburger. "Starting with NAC at home. Looking further does not make sense either. And we have enough quality to stay in it. I believe in Fortuna."

    Against VVV Venlo (1-1), Novakovich was important with a goal. "I make a typical strikers goal, that was about time again. But after that we thought we would be ahead with 2-0 and then there was that VAR again. I was told it was offside, but it all takes so long. It is certainly not a happy combination between the VAR and Fortuna, but we shouldn't talk too much about that, "he concludes.

    So after 16 years languishing in the Eerste, Fortuna gets promoted, and seems likely they won't be relegated because the other two promoted teams, Graafschap and Emmen are just as bad, Excelsior has been circling the drain for a while, and Breda had a surprisingly horrible season.

    Guess they deserve their name, they got lucky.

    9 league goals/2 assists in 26 league matches (24) starts. Not too shabby. Hope he's good for another 2 or 3.

    Maybe they can enter into a gentleman's agreement with EPB's club winning so long as Nova gets a goal.

    Nova needs a goal or 2. Best opportunity.

    Oh damn, are you me? Yeah, it's been really hard to sleep lately. Have you found a way to fight that? Is it a lack of water or something?
