Re: Official World Cup 2014 Thread

Just about to ask if Krul had done well for Newcastle with penalties but Lineker answered it' date=' saved 2 in 20 baffles me as why he has been brought on.[/quote']

Never know the reason. Maybe he was shining in training at PK's. Maybe Cillessen sucked completely? Van Gaal knows best :)

Re: Official World Cup 2014 Thread With Robin Van Persie suspended, tonight will be the first time in 221 games (1996) that the Netherlands will play without a player with 'Van' in their name.

Re: Official World Cup 2014 Thread

Mhm. Or it's a nod to Krul. Either way makes this interesting :P

Given how rarely they get subbed, it shows absolutely no confidence in your keeper to take them off if they're not injured.

Krul's saved 2 of 20 penalties for Newcastle. Why not bring on Vorm if he's going to make that kind of move?

Maybe Van Gaal coached him on Costa Rica shooter tendencies (which he doesn't have time to do right before with Cillesen who is in game).

Or maybe Cillesen picked up a mild injury we don't know about.

We shall hear about it in the post-match press conference :D

All I'm saying is let's hear the explanations after the game before judging too much :P

Two things

1. I'd imagine LVG explains his reasoning to Cillessen

2. Hopefully Cillessen's confidence is not so brittle as to be hurt by being subbed.

1) He'd have had to do it before the game to not get a bad reaction.

2) It's not being subbed. It's keeping a clean sheet for 2 hours and then your manager saying, actually we'd prefer this guy for the bit that matters.

1. LVG probably did.

2. From your experience of professional football at World Cup level you must be correct. Who did you play for? I didn't know we had an ex World Cup keeper among us :)
