Time to change, cheering on RKC even if I'm just sat in front of the telly. Eagles can get tae f**k, and so can Sparta later tonight.

graafschap looking good to take a draw away from rotterdam in the first leg of the play off; that mooted automatic second relegation place is a disaster for them though - and an injury time penalty puts them 1-2 up at the Spartapark - and that's how it finishes; second leg on tuesday night - get to f**k cambuur - get to f**k henk de jong :lol:

Oh I am ever so pleased with the scoreline - de Graafschap played like a they were on a day out with the local hospital's comatose patients ward. No way did I think they'd claw back a win.

Still, fearing the worst. Hoping Tuesday will perk up 18/19 just a little for me.

The day to make or break my season - RKC and de Graafschap, do me proud.

Spoiler

f**k Go Ahead, and f**k Sparta

Well, @DutchBordererwill be happy. In the 89th minute Go Ahead Eagles looked like getting promoted by taking a 4-3 lead, after first coming back from 0-2 down to 3-2 and then conceding again. Yet in the 95th minute RKC scored and they would be promoted on away goals, followed by another RKC goal in the 97th minute to give them a 4-5 aggregate win. What a finish...

As Marten said, I am quite pleased with RKC's win in what was the single craziest match I have ever seen. Going from Heaven to Hell to Heaven to Hell and so on. If you have the means to watch it somewhere, you owe it to yourself to give it a look. What a game.

Conversely, I am desperately disappointed by de Graafschap's failure to shake off Sparta after recording a 1-2 away win. I loathe Sparta and its fans, so it's rather painful to see them promoted. Really stimmied the pleasure I derived from the Go Ahead - RKC match. Here's hoping that entitled shower of c***s go straight back down.

Why don’t you like Sparta or Go Ahead?

I grew up rather close to Deventer, and I can't name a single fan of Go Ahead who isn't a complete and utter twat (and I am fully aware of the irony encompassed by that statement). The fanbase in general also has a propensity for shitty behaviour, but then that may be my local bias.

Sparta is artificially kept alive by a handful of businessmen and the club and fans alike have the worst entitlement issues in world football, in addition to being ridiculously arrogant. There is no equivalent to them in Scottish football, but if I had to give an example, Sparta would be like Dumbarton if the Sons demanded a fixed spot in the Premiership based on their century old league titles and called every team outside of West Dunbartonshire useless diddy farmers.

The stunned silence that engulfed De Adelaarshorst at the final whistle last night was rather amusing,  especially after Langedijks goal celebration, the RKC fans enjoyed it though.

An amazing game!

I wish there was a more comprehensive set of highlights out there, but this will do for now. Some game;

 

A screamer of a goal, in front of the away end, for the equaliser to 4-4. Scenes, as they say!

:lol: fair enough.

Always liked Go Ahead because of their colours. Maybe “liked” is a bit strong but I’ll always cheer on the red & yellow team in a totally neutral situation...

Great highlights package for that game. Some excellent scenes in both ends.

Have a soft spot for Sparta due to their history (oldest Dutch team) and cool ground. Also Villa won the European Cup in Rotterdam; admittedly at Feyenoord's ground.

Pedantic git checking in but they are not the oldest team but rather oldest professional team. Oldest club overall is Koninklijke HFC from Haarlem who were founded 1879 & started out as a rugby club before switching to football in 1883 (5 years before Sparta were founded). They currently play in the 3rd tier Tweede Divisie which is top tier of semi-pro/amateur football.

Could any of the Dutch posters (or anyone else) tell me the best place to find a comprehensive list of Dutch pre season games? I know there won't be many announced yet though.

I'm in Amsterdam from 5th-7th July so a game in Sat 6th would be ideal. Got the bus/train to IJmuiden last year to see Telstar v some local amateur side.

Not too many scheduled yet, comprehensive lists will be published in the coming weeks so will keep an eye out for you. Telstar are a good shout again, and same for ADO Den Haag; both tend to play amateur sides in their local area.
