    Holland and Luxembourg - the two neighbors battle it out for local supremacy! Who will reign supreme after this backyard brawl?

    I think Holland should win with a big score... But MVB has to find a way to break Luxemburg defense first, I think they will play with 8-9 defenders...
    Belarus??? Hope Holland can learn from the past experience, draw twice with Belarus 2-2 and 0-0...

    That was Macedonia, and where is Robben? Van Basten cannot possibly drop him too. :eek:

    I read that Marco will check with the Chelski doctors to see how Arjen progresses so he may have a chance.

    Even if he does not play 6 points must be the only reality here that is acceptable.

    I need Robben is very usefull when Holland see a defensively team like Belarus and Luxemburg. We need him, with his creative dribling... Oh yes, thanks for the correction. I was wrong about Macedonia..

    Was that for Euro 04 qualifying? I don't remember, but Holland was very weak in those years (figures - it's Advocaat.) The team now is pretty strong (even though Van Basten made some dumb choices.)

    It will be disappointing if we don't get more than 3 goals against Belarus. If we're going to play attacking, against a team like Belarus, Holland have to win big.

    I cannot take another 1-0 win over bad teams (like we did against Armenia) or ties against teams like Macedonia. Heck, I expect the team to win big (at least 2-3 goals) against Romania too.

    Also, if Robben don't play, then Kuyt will get the into the wing most likely. His poor form (even against Ireland B) is really frightening. Remember the funny shot he had against Ireland, kicking the ball miles away from the goal, it was just ridiculous.

    We lose 0-1, isn't it? Belarus could create a problem for our squad...

    He looked to be in form today for Liverpool.

    Also dont think Luxembourg is that much of a pushover, did you know they beat the Czech Republic for a Euro qualifier in 1995 :eek:

    Sometimes lame teams get lucky. Northern Ireland beat England just a year ago, that doesn't mean anything. NI will still be crushed this year (by decent teams.)

    Vs Luxemburg : no way to lose or draw
    Vs belarus : home match, maybe will be a little problem but no way to lose or draw too.
