I think quite a lot of us watched the Soccer-game between the Netherlands and the Czech Republic yesterday. Anyone who understands why Dick Advocaat substituted the man of the match, Arjan Robben: please explain Wink

Maybe Dick was feeling a bit homesick? Or is he just tired of life?

Because he was scared of Pavel Nedved and thought it would help to replace the best man on the pitch with a defending midfielder to mark Nedved. The immediate result being that the Dutch lost their attacking ability and Nedved became more dangerous than he was, being involved in both goals and hammering one on the bar. Great going...DICK.

Alright, I will accept the substitution from Arjen Robben. But then he should have brought Marc Overmars and not a defender. The Czech were pissed scared of the Dutch play and that changed immediately after the substitution. And then Dick also thinks a 35 year old Bosvelt can control Nedved? Man, what a second mistake that was. It all fitted in the long going irritations I feel for Advocaat his defending and scary and conservative way of playing. F*ck him.

I'm very proud of the Dutch players, they really did a great job yesterday, but Advocaat ruined it completely. I've never seen such a bad substitution with such an immense impact on the game.

Oh erhm.....And....erhm......JAN MULDER for Captain!! Tongue

Jan Mulder is a clown, and for that last couple of years quite an annoying one instead of being funny. He used to be funny. In 1998.

And I do not accept the sub of Robben. It was ridiculous, unnecessary and stupid.

Yeah well, I don't think Jan Mulder wants to be funny. Apparently, people want him to be so...
