    Sigh… Ake was taken off prematurely just now, only lasted 22 minutes in the match. Seems like muscular problems. Fingers crossed nothing serious, just cautionary measures... :(

    The amount of injuries is outrageous, and it’s all because there are far too many matches, and not enough rest.
    We can thank greed from all the various Leagues and hierarchy of the sport UEFA and FIFA for all of this.
    The players are very well paid, but the wear and tear on their bodies will take it’s toll.
    It will lessen the quality of the game at some point if it’s not already

    Plus they have two cup competitions when everyone else just has one!

    I hope Van De Ven given playing times the next 2 matches. He deserves this. We all know what Ake, De Ligt, Van Dijk, De Vrij, Blind, Geertruida can do at NT.

    Well, here we go. First trouble that Slot must deal with… his own countryman Sepp v.d Berg is forcing his way out from Liverpool. Can’t blame him TBH, he’s “already” 22 and really needs regular playing times just like when he was on loan in Germany. Remain to be seen if Slot can give him that assurance.

    Looks like Koeman made the right decision to leave Maatsen off the squad. Nightmare of a mtach tonight.

    As I said he’s inexperienced and vulnerable defensively. Got beat a few times and I think both goals his fault.
    That said I’m tired of Blind or possibly seeing Geertruida out there switch off or lose his position which he has a propensity to do for Oranje.

    Well, despite his error in the final Maatsen earned a spot in the CL Team of the Season.
    Si I guess his performance wasnot that bad at all as some in here suggest by backing Koeman.

    I hope Dortmund will purchase Maatsen outright (I don’t know if they’ll have funds). If not, Maatsen will be back to his parent club Chelsea that just hired a new manager and presumably are well into a rebuilding mode. Not exactly the kind of place where he wants to be…
