Eredivisie - Netherlands

Recommended Posts

Surprised we don't have a thread yet.

Fatrick Pievert's son scored his first Eredivisie goal 10 years after his father scored his last in the league.

I’m all for Video Refs instead of 5th officials who stand beside the goal like lemons. They are not worthwhile, at all!

The Cruyff Legacy lives on: Ajax agree to new stadium name

Johan-Cruyff-of-Ajax.jpg

On the day Johan Cruyff would have turned 70, his home city has agreed to name Ajax's stadium after the Dutch football legend.

Amsterdam Municipality says it has agreed with the stadium and Eredivisie giants Ajax to change the name of the Amsterdam Arena to the Johan Cruijff Arena - using the Dutch spelling of the Ajax and Barcelona star who died last year.

The agreement, announced Tuesday, is expected to be finalised within six months.

A club statement read: "The board of the Amsterdam Arena (Stadion Amsterdam), the board of AFC Ajax and the mayor have agreed in a letter of intent to change the name of the Amsterdam ArenA to the Johan Cruyff Arena.

"With the name change, the three parties want the best footballer Amsterdam has had to get a worthy tribute.

"Jordi Cruyff (Johan's son) has stated that he was pleased and honoured by the letter of intent to change the name on behalf of the family.

"Details are spelled out in a contract that within six months will be submitted to the city council, the management and supervisory boards of Stadion Amsterdam and Ajax.

"The parties are convinced that this will do justice to the memory of Johan Cruyff and express the hope that the Johan Cruyff Arena is an inspiration for players from all over the world."

Incredibly touching this piece of news, especially once you have read his thoughts on Ajax as a football club. He would have broken every bone in his body for them and it's nice to see that they are repaying all of his time, effort, commitment and love by re-branding the Amsterdam ArenA to incorporate his name. 

The legacy lives on.

I think that is a far more fitting name.

Riot police used water cannon to disperse Feyenoord fans after their team lost to Rotterdam rivals Excelsior to take the Dutch league title race to the final day of the season.

Leaders Feyenoord started four points ahead of nearest challengers Ajax.

But Feyenoord lost 3-0, while Ajax crushed Go Ahead Eagles 4-0.

Thousands of Feyenoord fans had gathered in the city centre hoping to celebrate their club's first Dutch league title since 1999.

Ajax are one point behind Feyenoord going into the final day next Sunday.

Feyenoord will win their 14th Dutch league crown if they beat mid-table Heracles at home.

But Ajax can finish top if they win away to Willem II and the leaders slip up.

Poor kid :(

I was watching this live, I dont think the fans who let the bangers off knew the boy would be there, it was protest about modern football.  The boy did look very scared, nice the players looked after him.

I love this gesture. And even more so that they revealed it on the day that would have been his birthday, too!

I hope they can win the Europa League in further honour of the great man himself.

exciting end to the Dutch league tomorrow, Feyenoord can win the league if they win their home match against Heracles Almelo, if Feyenoord draw and Ajax win away to Willem II then Ajax become champions.

Happy for Feyenoord. Important club in the Netherlands without many titles wins in forever. Remind me of Cruz Azul and Alianza Lima.

I'm more happy for Renato Tapia though. Sure he didn't get much playing time this season but that's 2 Peruvians winning titles in one weekend. Not something you see every week.

Should be stripped of the title for playing that pathetic song.

I am super pleased for Perth boy Brad Jones. What a season him and his side have had. Fair play to them. Been a long time between drinks.
