Is Zlatan still active, or do we have any other Dutch members?

    I looked at last years attendance figures, feyenord sold out every game (as did Twente, impressively) and Ajax and psv both had some sell outs and never less than 85% attendance but the highest Roda attendance is less than 75% capacity.... Looks like I've found my team

      Hi! Not really active, but still reading here from time to time

      Maastricht, nice! What you going to do over there? My girlfriend's family is from just over the Belgian border there, and she studied medicine herself at Maastricht University. So I know that city pretty well, we go there quite often... It's a nice place to live, pretty different from the rest of the country both in landscape and in people.

      As far as your question goes: obviously I won't go recommend you support PSV. Also, I think because it's one of the top teams it's more difficult to just casually see a game in the stadium (at least that's how it is here at Ajax mostly). MVV is fun, cute little stadium and a loyal somewhat aging crowd. They did almost go bankrupt a couple of years ago, and they play shitty lower league football. If you want higher level Roda would be better, they're the best team in the region. It's just that they're kind of a grey boring midtable team most of the time. I would go for MVV, just because they play in the same city you're going to live and it still has some of that old school football romantics in them. Most people I know in Maastricht support one of the big three (Ajax, Feyenoord, PSV) as their main team and MVV on the side.

        Zlatan, are you going to take Calumn out? You're gonna need more than balloons to keep him entertained.

          Thanks Zlats, I do like the sound of MVV Maastricht and I like lower league (and cheap) football, however the pull of the top division is strong as I would like to see Ajax, PSV etc and particularly Vitesse. I will check out both I am sure but I need to chose one to be an offical supporter of. I had a look at the Roda website and whilst there is no English it appeared that I could get a season ticket for only 200 euros.

          Do you think there is any chance of MVV being promoted in the next three years? That would be amazing, to support then during a promotion campaign and then for survival.

          I'll be in maastricht for the same reason as your girlfriend, for study, but I will be doing economics rather than medicine because I am an egoist rather than an altruist

            Well I wouldn't say so... but you never know. The promotional system from Jupiler League to Eredivisie is so weird and confusing that they might still make it to the playoffs and get lucky. The last few years they were midtable.

            If you want a team from the top division Roda obviously is the closest. Still I wouldn't say they play very entertaining decent level of football. For that you would have to go for one of the big teams, but they aren't exactly close to where you are going to be so... Depends on how much and how often you'd wanna travel for that. I know a guy who makes the 2,5 hour trip from Maastricht to Amsterdam every two weeks to watch Ajax play. It's all about dedication.

                So went to my first Eredivise match to see my new favourite team Roda Kerkrade play and this team is an absolute disaster. Two red cards by half time lead to a 0-3 at home stomping against highly mediocre opposition - the PA system announces that the referee should be killed (something I have not experienced before) which unsurprisingly leads him to give more decisions to the away team, though near the end he sent one of them off too for good measure. For second Roda red, a player shouted at the referee for not awarding a corner which earned him a yellow card, he complained about the yellow card and that earned him a second yellow card. You're probably thinking why didnt the captain intervene - he was the captain. It was insane.

                Anyway, I like this team

                  I'm going to see my first PSV game live this evening, and Van Ginkel should be starting. A few other names I know too - luuk de jong, guadrado, jetro willems - should be good!

                    Most likely also "wonderkid" Martin Odegaard for Heerenveen. He's on loan from Real Madrid. Enjoy!

                    Edit: that game was epic!

                      Yeah absolutely phenomenal. I didn't even know fm legend was at Heerenveen until he came on. and van Ginkel with the equaliser. wonderful experience. at 3-2 I told the old dutch man next to me that 5 minutes was plenty of time and he didn't believe me!!

                            I love these fish frying vans in Holland. I have started getting my lunch there far too often
