Once feared by the world , can no longer even qualify for the World Cup.

 

And now Arjen Robben - their only good player - has quit the team.

 

I know Arjen likes Stratego and Darts so maybe he can make a World Cup in those , where the Dutch are still top.

Of course the USA also failed to qualify last night by losing to Trinidad & Tobago .

 

I expect Americans on here too shocked and upset to talk about it   :ph34r:

We dont have topplayers at the moment mr. Tober. Also we had some coaches that did not perform very well. We probably are more shocked than the Americans. Soccer is more important here :).

Even more embarassing is Argentina not qualifying for th World Cup.

Argentina did qualify though , just about . 

 

They were losing the final game but Messi scored a hat trick .

I'm sure someone on here said - maybe Lonello ? - that Arjen Robben was a keen stratego player and had played in a live tournament in Holland.

Which reminds me of a Greek retired player who also played stratego - Demis Nikolaidis.

:D Most Americans probably unaware their team played a match at all .

 

Yes Holland always used to have 4 or 5 great players at any one time , sometimes 6 or 7 . Then it was just Robben and now nothing , no young players coming through.

 

Your coaches ,such as Advocaat,Hiddink ,Van Gaal , have great reputations but they were built in the 1990s or early 2000s  ,and they seem like yesterday's men now.

This is not true (unfortunately). But hes welcome to join us any day :).

And Tober, Louis v. Gaal became 3th with the Dutch on the 2014 WC with only Robben as topplayer and a great defensive wall :).

That is what I wanted to say too. We're ruling Semi Worldchampions! Van Gaal almost lead us to the finals in 2014 but it came down to penalties against Argentina. But the semi-final we won so we're ruling 3rd of the world!

 

And the youth team -17 actually became European Champions in Ljubljana so those youngsters almost arrive in the first team now. So there's no problem here. Currently we have a team in the Europa League playing too: Vitesse. Which is half the Chelsea team. And last night was a great match so there's potential.

Trump would call this disqualification just calm before the storm :unsure: :wacko: :blink: :huh: ^_^ B)

Yes, I told you about this live tournament that was held over here, and the organization said there would be a special openingceremony by the hand of Robben, and that he would play too. Never happened ofcourse as that was a hoax. April Fools I believe.
