PSV Eindhoven up next

By r’Andy

Our next in line to undertake mortal combat with are The Philips Sport Vereniging, otherwise known as PSV Eindhoven. The club was formed in 1956 and therefore just a Johnny come lately compared to our esteemed club. Their nicknames are Boeren (Peasants/Farmers), Lampen (Lightbulbs) and Rood-witten (Red and whites). So the red and white light bulbs are hopefully going to get smashed on Wednesday.

PSV currently has one of their best goal differences after 9 Eredivisie duels this season, 36 for and only 3 against. This hasn’t been bettered since the season 1999-2000 when they had a slightly better goal average, with +34 (42-8) after 9 games. They currently looked down on everyone in Eredivisie, including Ajax by 5 points and Feyernord by 7. Clearly this is a good season for them and they will be tough nuts to crack. But crack them we must if we are to have any chance of progressing to the knock out stages in the Champions League.

Just a few more useless facts, they have won the Eredivisie 24 times, the KNVB Cup nine times and the Johan Cruyff Shield ten times. Currently, PSV is 28th on the UEFA club coefficients ranking. Throughout the years, PSV established itself as a stepping stone for future world class players like: Ruud Gullit, Ronald Koeman, Romario, Ronaldo, Cocu, Jaap Stam, Van (the man) Nistelroy, Arjen Robben and who could forget perhaps the greatest of all, Hirving Lozano.

A nice, easy 3-0 win is called for and anything less will require industrial strength water pumps to be installed in the bedrooms.

    We would โ€˜spillโ€™ the stuff and watch the heavier than air vapour rolling across the surface. It was fascinating.

    … you had to have been there I suspect …

    Remember tonight’s kick off is an early one. 17:55, I believe. If I’m wrong you can discard this message.

    • Ronwol196061 24/10/2018 at 4:47 pm

      • Ronwol196061 24/10/2018 at 4:50 pm

        11.49 here now

    • Northern Spur 24/10/2018 at 4:50 pm

      Thatโ€™s my understanding, too, although the Sky Sports App has it as an 8pm ko on one of its pages. Sloppy!

  • merrance 24/10/2018 at 4:51 pm

    11.5o here now

    • Ronwol196061 24/10/2018 at 4:51 pm


      • Ronwol196061 24/10/2018 at 4:52 pm

        I checked its 11.51

          Synchronised watches.

          • Ronwol196061 24/10/2018 at 4:53 pm

            Steve Martin says its about Ti-ming

  • Ronwol196061 24/10/2018 at 4:55 pm

    Scientists say that time is made up,it doesn’t exist so I wonder how everybody gets together at the same time
    It baffles the mind

    • Ronwol196061 24/10/2018 at 4:56 pm

      I mean you take a random number like 12.55 and go figure what happens after that. We have no idea

      • Ronwol196061 24/10/2018 at 4:57 pm

        over there the game is on at 17.55 so you don’t have that problem

        • Ronwol196061 24/10/2018 at 4:59 pm

          I mean sure the game starts at 17.55 and then Sanchez passes it to Toby and he passes it back and this goes on for 6 minutes. Its a waste of time and space

          • 89Spurs ๐Ÿ‘ 24/10/2018 at 5:06 pm

            The clocks alter here on 28th Oct at 0200, then it becomes 0100. So time is only relative, at a set time. Give or take an hour.

            • Ronwol196061 24/10/2018 at 5:11 pm

              I don’t care.In the Ronglish world we use of watches in a different way.Its like abstract art.You can put in whatever time you want

              • Ronwol196061 24/10/2018 at 5:11 pm

                “What time is it?”

                “What time do you think it is?”

              • 89Spurs ๐Ÿ‘ 24/10/2018 at 5:12 pm

                Not if you want to catch a train.

  • SeattleSpursGuy 24/10/2018 at 5:04 pm

    • 89Spurs ๐Ÿ‘ 24/10/2018 at 5:08 pm

      Well thatโ€™s a start. How will it finish?

    • Ronwol196061 24/10/2018 at 5:09 pm

      Only other I would pick is Rose but I guess he is injured
