Report Official Eredivisie Discussion Thread in European Football Posted August 12, 2013 Re: Eredivisie Discussion Thread Has anyone been following PSV so far? Their squad looks incredibly exciting and' date=' from my point of view, Karim Rekik's progression is of real interest. Talk on City forums is probably over hyped but from them I hear he's an outside shot for a place in the Dutch NT. True or rubbish? [/quote']I've watched a few of PSV's games so far, and they're one of the most intriguing teams I've seen for a long time. Manager Philip Cocu is putting a HUGE emphasis on youth, and this past Saturday in their game against NEC, the oldest player in their starting XI was 22. I see PSV as a legitimate threat to catch AC Milan off guard in the CL qualifiers, albeit still the underdogs. As a unit, PSV's defense looks a bit weak at the moment, but Rekik has looked like a pretty decent defender. He's a strong tacker and a good passer, but his early partnership with Jeffrey Bruma looks a bit suspect. Mind you, we're only a couple of games into the season. In PSV's game against NEC, Zakaria Bakkali was by far a class above the rest, with Georginio Wijnaldum, Oscar Hiljemark, and Rekik all putting in good shifts. Jetro Willems was decent as well, but he's certainly not recently been able to justify his inclusion at the Euro 2012.
