    Last 8 games.....7 wins, 1 tie....but get this:

    18 GF and ZERO GA (according to Yahoo, at least)

    Has anyone ever heard of 8 shutouts in a row in a major/mid-range Euro league? Wow...

    How did they lose if there were zero goals against?

    unfortunately, this reflects the fact that the Dutch league is pretty unbalanced.It unusual for the big 3 to lose to anyone except each other-much like Scotland.because of that, there is always talk of an "Atlantic" league involving the bigger teams from some of the non-huge leagues.

    Chelsea has allowed only 3 goals in 12 games this year, and Stuttgart had a pretty good start last year. That's probably more impressive than PSV.

    I agree that is more impressive overall....I am just talking an 8 game stretch.

    Stuttgart had an unreal start last year as well (good one). Shutouts in their first 8 games, with a GF 8 and GA 0, 5 wins, 3 ties.

    After 15 games, they still had not been beaten and had only let up 3 or 4 goals- maybe something for PSV to shoot for...although Stuttgart wound up blowing the league...

    Shortly after he took over at Reading, I seem to recall that Hahnemann had nine or ten straight shutouts.

    Why is this surprising? The Dutch league is the SPL with one more Snow White and a couple more dwarfs.

    Okay, I'm with you, but who would be the third major in Holland? No one else with more history than Aberdeen, Hearts, hibs, is there?
    Total agreement on the point, though. I'd be shocked if you couldn't find a Celtic streak in the past few years of this length, or a Rangers streak from Reyna's time there.
    PSV is a nice team, but they've got a ways to go before they're in the top class. Can sure step that way on the 24th, however.

    And the point isn't history, it's current ability to compete.

    I think mid-table Eredivisie is pretty competitive. Very few teams are going to get out on the road and count on a walkover at Heerenveen, Utrecht, AZ, Roda etc.

    PSV was ranked fourth in europe by eurosport during the wrapup show, noticed today. So that's in the quiver for this argument.

    Boy, DMB must feel lucky not to have gone to Southampton now.

    I think there is a case for PSV to be in the top ten in Europe right now. However, they are pertty much as high as they can possibly be right now because they lack the depth that clubs like Chelsea and Madrid have.

    The man DMB replaced isn't playing poorly right now, either. If he manages to follow Robben ascension, we're in for a very exciting ride.

    10 shutouts in a row, 21 GF 0 GA, at least 900 straight shutout minutes...likely more...

    PSV with a real chance to extend to 12 shutouts in a row- with games against weaklings Twente Enschente (sp?) and (2) the last place team- Graafschap.

    Then Rotterdam away...that might be tough to shut out..

    Anyone know when Breda scored their 2nd goal on Aug. 28th? (last time a team scored against PSV)...that would add some minutes on as well

    Breda scored in the 50' minute on August 28th. So make that 940 shutout minutes...beating the Italian record apparently...
