The Dutch Women NT Thread

Discussion in 'The Netherlands' started by DRB300, Oct 31, 2014.

  1. Thanks to the French ladies we're still alive, but we have to beat the German ladies to get to the Olympic Games.
    It's a home match for us in Heerenveen, so hopefully a sold out stadium to carry the Orange Lionesses to victory.

    Dutch lose again to Spain
    The Dutch female football players have not been able to qualify for the final of the Nations League.
    The Netherlands bowed in Seville, after a bad first and a better second half, with 3-0 to world champion Spain.
    On Wednesday, the Dutch team will play in Heerenveen against Germany for third place and an Olympic ticket.

    The first chance was for the Dutch (Brugts just couldn't get to a cross from Van de Donk), but after that coach Jonker's team, partly due to the many losses of possession in their own half, couldnot get out of the Spanish pressure before half-time. The match seemed to be a copy of the quarter-final at the World Cup, in which Spain reigned supreme for an hour.

    Spain slows down after the break...
    Paralluelo in particular frolicked through the Dutch defense and the Dutch were lucky that the attacker had missed a handful of chances, also because Van Domselaar intervened well twice. The goalkeeper had no chance when Hermoso appeared in front of her after a slalom past three defenders and when Bonmati slid in after a cross from Caldentey. Because it was also 2-0 at halftime in France-Germany, the Netherlands knew that they had not yet been eliminated for a Olympic ticket. After the break, Spain slowed down and the Dutch managed to keep the ball in the team a bit better. Brugts and Martens were close to making it 2-1, but the goal fell on the other side: Battle scored.

    I have a Board of Directors meeting and will have to stop watching this terrible match. Likely will end at 0-0 and go to PKs. We all know how the Dutch do with penalties.

    Just saw the result and I was not surprised. This will be a good thing in the long run as there are a lot of players are burned out from all the matches for both club and country. ESPN US had a long story on this the other day, noting how many competitions the NT has been in over the past 5 years. When you add into that the increased club schedule and Champions League matches that impact almost all the starters, it's a huge burden. I've seen Groenen both for club and country this year and she looks like she is running on fumes. Probably the same for van de Donk. Martens is really not quick these days. Miedema is still not back in the team with any great effect. Beerensteyn was so selfish on that one break away as she had an open teammate but decided to take on two defenders..

    It was a great run by these ladies but some of them will need to step aside now.

    Jonker is a total fool for this statement. He's got a lot of over the hill players and refuses to acknowledge that. His substitution pattern yesterday was pathetic. I am saddened by what looks like a downward spiral for the NT. the other problem is the Dutch league needs to be markedly improved. Ajax will lose a lot of their good players this year as there is no guarantee that they will qualify for the Champions League next season. With only two top class team, this league does not have a path forward. Apparently clubs don't have to have more than four players under contract for a given season.

    Chasity Grant had to flip a switch to return to the Orange Lionesses: 'People said to me: 'Come on Chas!''

    Battered, the Orange Lionesses have gathered again in Zeist. The many injuries offer opportunities for new players to step up in the upcoming European Championship qualifiers. One of them is Chasity Grant, who stood out with Ajax in the Champions League this season. "I hope I can get some minutes."

    Jonker bummed after los: "We've fallen for it, a classic Italy - Netherlands"

    5 apr 2024 om 23:01 Update: 13 uur geleden

    Andries Jonker is frustrated after the 0-2 defeat of the Orange against Italy in the European Championship qualification. The coach saw his team control, but not dangerous. "This was a classic Italy-Netherlands," Jonker said at the online press conference. "We had almost 65 per cent of the possession, but they scored two goals and got the points. In other words: we fell for it." Jonker watched as his team fell behind after just four minutes when Valentina Giacinti sneaked away from the back of Sherida Spitse and shot flawlessly.

    "Then you fall behind the facts and you can't get back to it. We still had a lot of control, especially in the first half. But we didn't become dangerous. You don't buy anything for that. Then you lose. Pretty hopeless." Despite the third defeat in a row, Jonker is not worried. Earlier, the Dutch lost to Spain and Germany in the Nations League. "There's nothing wrong at all. We have deservedly lost twice to the world champion and a top-eight country. That was at a time when we weren't ready and not fit for that. Now we're missing half a team."

    Jonker missed veterans: 'Jonker missed veterans: 'We have to make strides''

    Jonker was forced to start against Italy with a heavily changed Orange. Lieke Martens, Jackie Groenen, Vivianne Miedema, Jill Roord and Daphne van Domselaar were unavailable due to injuries. "I'd like to see it again when they're there. Then we have a completely different game. But even with the team we have now, we can win against these kinds of countries. Then we have to take steps." Jonker hopes that his team will perform better against Norway.
    Next Tuesday, the Dutch team will take on the Norwegians in the Rat Verlegh Stadium in Breda. That match starts at 8:45 p.m. cest

    Standing ovation for Vivianne Miedema at emotional farewell to Arsenal
    Vivianne Miedema has said goodbye to Arsenal with a goal. The 27-year-old striker of the Orange scored as a substitute once in the last league game of this season against Brighton & Hove Albion (5-0). It was an immediate hit with her first contact with the ball. She also provided the assist for Frida Maanum's last goal.

    there is no path upward until they begin bringing younger players into the team. Miedema has never recovered from her knee injuiry and Pelova is also out with an ACL tear (both suffered injuries at Arsenal whose manager is just terrible).

    I know Suzanne Bakker is gone from Ajax but she was very good at rotating players which is critical in the women's game because of the heightened risk of knew injuries.
