Naturally there is attention for the spectacular top match between Ajax and PSV (2-2), in the first NOS football podcast of 2021.In the first edition of the podcast, the NOS will present the match.
Presenter Arno Vermeulen and commentators Jan Roelfs, Jeroen Grueter and Jeroen Elshoff agree that it was an attractive match. But according to Roelfs the choice to start Sébastien Haller on the bench was a wrong one by Ajax coach Erik ten Hag. "I find it incomprehensible."
There is also coverage of Feyenoord's victory over city rival Sparta. Lucas Pratto started in the starting line-up and several players are back in action after injuries. "Many players are back and now Advocaat has something to choose from," said Grueter.
Also the clubs at the bottom of the Eredivisie are being watched. For bottom of the table FC Emmen the situation is dire, the team from Drenthe has only five points after fifteen matches.
And the situation at Willem II is not going well.
At Willem II things are not going well this season either. The team is in second place and lost Sunday at VVV-Venlo (2-1). Elshoff spoke after that game with trainer Adrie Koster. "He was completely gone with his thoughts and had red eyes. He was distraught."
The rise of Fortuna Sittard under coach Sjors Ultee is striking. The team is six games unbeaten in a row and so the only 33-year-old Ultee can count on praise. "It's great that such a young man is able to do this," said Elshoff.
