Welcome to Villa Ian, been a while since we’ve had such a great name.

We say Never! Never! Never!

I have a feeling about this one.  I think this will turn out to be a good bit of business.  Please feel free to copy and paste this in my face in 2 years time XD

I do as well. For all the "Chelsea mates" and "3rd left back", said 3rd left back was actually competing in the top competition in Europe all the way to the final. Their other two were losing to kids in a cup final and getting birds nesting in their hair.

Yep, all comes across as pretty salty to me.

Doesn't really matter, does it? We know we've signed a seriously good player.

Any chance of Maatsen playing tonight for the Netherlands?

Koeman appears to favour physically strong left-backs.

Once again, he started with Ake, replacing him with Van de Venn later on.

To be fair, Holland more or less dominated the match so didn't really need a 'creative' substitute.

Send him back so he can get some rest before the new season if you're not going to pick him.

Was he even on the bench? I couldn’t see his name listed and I thought all players were available to be subs?

So another inadequate coach who wants CB's to play as fullbacks.

Obviously practising for when he arrives at Bodymoor and joins others in the treatment room!! ;-)
