Feyenoord were actually showing signs of improvement on Thursday Dahli. There was a fighting spirit in the team which I haven't seen for a long long time. Looks like all the players finally realise that they have to work twice as hard as last season, when they could depend on Kalou/Kuyt.
Not taking them this weekend, but certainly keeping an eye on the odds for the coming weeks.
Well, I didn't watch the game as I was in the Arena for the Ajax game, but I heard they still didn't play well. At this moment any team is coming to the Kuip for at least a point, instead of keeping the score as low as possible as it was for a period of time.
There is still a lot of pressure from the outside as well, Koeman is acting different, more agressive to players that they have to perform. Then there is the situation of the striker. Charisteas is injured, Van Hooijkdonk too old, Ali Bousabon and Kolkka not good enough for the level Feyenoord would like to be. And of course the whole chairman discussion. This weekend there will be again protests that the chairman of Feyenoord should step down. It is just not easy to pick up a good form in this situation. Versus Veendam for the Cup Feyenoord really played awfull. And on the other hand, NAC had a decent 60min performance vs Ajax, and are now unbeaten for 3 matches. I seriously think they could get a draw here.
