Perfect set PSV ends in The Cockpit
Feyenoord went down the undefeated leader of the League for peace with passion and aggression. The Locals expressed in two goals. The difference in experience with the mostly weak performances of the last few weeks was great. It fell Feyenoord last week against FC Groningen (1-0) after a strong start far back.

I’m not justifying that it happens. Against Groningen we started well, but after a while it dropped down the road from us and we were sloppy. Now that was not the case. We also had the full focus is needed to PSV to be able to win.”

We were for peace lord and master.” The home team had in the second half backwards, because the attack looks more menacing was with Donyell Times in place of Gaston Pereiro. “PSV was to play otherwise, and we had a bit of trouble with it. They also get opportunities and then you have to rely on your defense and keeper,” said Toornstra.
Shortly after the aansluitingstreffer of Steven Bergwijn was from the audience a second ball in the Rotterdam zestienmetergebied thrown in with a chance of PSV. “A remarkable moment.

That is quite a bit better starting position than the sixteen points that it could have been.”
