Official PSV thread
official PSV Eindhoven website:
what do you think of Guus Hiddink?
I think Hiddink is a good coach, but in all the attention given to korea's performance.....that home team's always do well at the world cup. But perhaps his reputation can keep guys like Hofland and Van Bommel around for a while longer
PSV Korfbal? What is that about???
Oaky, you should probably put an [R] in the thread title if you're planning on posting during the season.
PSV korfbal is about a weird basketball like sport. But as this is a soccer site you probably ment: www.psv.nl
I hate yahoo web searches
Try voetbal.pagina.nl You'll find links to all Dutch clubs on there.

PSV and MBC sign Korean TV deal
when was the last time that the PSV winned the Holland league???
PSV buy forward Park Ji-Sung (en Español)
The article says they bought the South Korean forward for 4.5 million dollars, which is the highest amount of money payed for a player in South Korean history.
Should Dutch teams really be making records in transfer sums?
Should PSV really buy another forward when they couldn't even decide which forwards to put into the starting team this year?
Should PSV really buy a South Korean forward, South Korea who weren't famous for scoring from good chances in J/K2002?
In case of player like Park Ji-Sung, they must...
Just for the information, Park Ji-Sung is not a forward. He is a multi-functional midfielder and can even play rightback. For PSV he will be competing with Dennis Rommedahl for a starting place on the right side of the midfield.
And this is not a record transfersum because Park was out of contract at Purple Sanga. He got several new contractoffers by is old club (even higher than the offer of PSV) but he chose for good football and his carreer. So no transferfee was paid only a singing fee but that wasn't 4,5 million (I thought).
Park Ji-Sung is a special player and has the potential to be a great one. Marco is right on point when he mentioned that he is a multi-positional player. Guys like Ahn Jung Hwan (forward/attacking midfielder), Seol Ki Hyeon (forward/winger) and Lee Chun Soo (forward) are more straight offensive players. Guys like Park and Song Chong Gug are more midfield-based with flexibility to play other positions. Between the two, Park is better offensively and has better ball skills, Song the better and more physical defensive player. He is also good on penalties and has a tough, choke-resistant disposition.
Kyoto Purple Sanga, Park's former club that gave him his first break, was willing to shell out $$ to keep him but he moved to PSV for substantially less money, which was obviously the right move. In a year's time, I think he will already appear like a bargain for PSV.
I think Kyoto Purple Sanga offered Park somewhere between US$2 to 2.5 million over two years. I believe Park got a 5-year contract with PSV. I think his agent may have asked for US$4.5 million for 5 years but I suspect they finally settled for less.
Oscar, normally I would just ignore idiots like you but be thankful that I'm generous enough to educate you with these videos of "scoring from good chances". Now shut the hell up.

In return PSV will have valuable marketing tools in the Korean market. Indeed, PSV is already gaining a lot of exposures on the media and TV here in Korea.
In case you haven't noticed, Skycommunication, a sport marketing company based in Korea, already paid 4 million dollars to PSV to buy broadcasting rights, licensing and the facility marketing. There is also a talk of several Korean companies wanting to sponsor PSV in the near future. PSV is becoming very famous here in Korea.
Do your homework first, before blabbering crap. You don't even know anything about Park - obviously - but you have some very strong opinions about his transfer. Park is not only a forward as you may think, but he plays almost every position except central defense and goalkeeper in certain situations. He is two-footed and can play on both sides.
You wouldn't be worrying about finishing if you saw his goal against Portugal, or his strikes against Dudek and Casillas, which was more good goalkeeping than poor shooting.
