These are difficult times for fans of De Graafschap. The club is in eighteenth place and after Achilles ’29 most defeats. How different is that in Venlo. VVV Venlo is proud to head and looks very solid. It is almost inevitable that keeps the tourist points Friday in house.


Ajax is the only club who still keep up can in the wake of the forthcoming championship. At least, in Venlo themselves they want to have absolutely not about that, but it looks very good. Ajax, which has four points less, is not a competitor, because promising teams should not be promoted. Only FC Volendam (8 points behind) and MVV (9) and to a lesser extent, NAC (12) and Cambuur (14) are somewhat dangerous, but they must first show itself yet again to win everything and then hope VVV- Venlo ends up in a serious dip. In fact, the team of Maurice Steijn has a better starting position than Sparta last year. Then stood NAC – which nevertheless is still estimated to exceed Volendam and MVV – long distance playable, but NAC are actually too far.

VVV Venlo last week had no child at FC Oss. The Oss, the Jupiler League’s top scorer in the team, are often a nuisance for the defense of the opponent, always scoring and stakes in good shape, but the Venlo in Oss won convincingly 0-3. Jordy Sleegers ensured the 0-1, after Vito Crooij in the final stage made the second and third. The winger was exasperated because he had to start on the bench in favor of Leandro Resida. VVV had for some time looking for an alternative left and that they have now found in Cedrino Misidjan. The left-back played in the first half of the season with the amateurs of De Treffers, but before he played for various Dutch and foreign professional clubs. Furthermore gedion zelalem hired for half a year of Arsenal. English professional club is happy with the development of Nwakali at MVV and Gestalt still an attacking midfielder in the first division. The American already made his debut for Arsenal in the FA Cup.

D. Crooij; Dekker, Promes, Röseler, Janssen; Post, Opoku, Leemans; Sleegers, Seuntjens, V. Crooij


De Graafschap got Monday night to process the next tick. The Super Farmers could not keep up with the top of the Jupiler League was one thing to it, but even number eighteen Jong FC Utrecht win quite right at home at De Graafschap, is an embarrassment. De Graafschap created only after half an hour the first decent chance, but was then already 2-0 behind. Despite ten minutes after the break was 3-0, there flashed the hope of a point. Bryan Smeets and made an own goal by Jong FC Utrecht sure Doetinchemmers came back to 3-2, but that was it.

“In the final we missed the real faith to even grab a point. But why? We have nothing to lose. The only advantage of this situation is that it only can be better, “said coach Henk de Jong Monday after his third defeat. The Frisian coach lashed out at his rear. De Jong: ‘It’s all slapstick. I’m watching every game to stand or sit no belchinezen. This is not to play football against. Central back we will speed deficit for that position should be really strengthening. ”

De Jong’s call was swift hearing, for Wednesday at the close of the transfer window pecked De Graafschap Kevin Diermen on at NAC. The defender always played under Dijkhuizen, but was placed on the bench by Vreven. “It’s always wait and see how it works, but in advance this was the type of player we were looking for,” said director Hofstede, referring to Van Diermen’s speed. “Also important is that he is fit and thus immediately usable. We hope he can lead his young teammates in the defense. “As De Jong Monday Jan Lammers and Tolgahan Cicek exchanged rest, they seem to be left Friday from the base. Mark Diemers Monday was sick, so it’s wait and see if he can play again. Anders Robert Klaasen will probably play again.
