THE NETHERLANDS: WELCOME TO THE DOLLHOUSE

While you don’t have to look outside of the Dutch national team’s recent work to find precedents for a talent-soaked squad that has imploded so dramatically, see the Netherlands at the 1990 World Cup or the Netherlands during 2002 World Cup qualifying. But for a team overloaded with the offensive gifts of Robin van Persie, Arjen Robben, Wesley Sneijder and Klaas-Jan Huntelaar to only manufacture two goals in three games is an indication of self-harming at a spectacular level.  The full behind-the-scenes story of  feuding, jealousy and even a mole is yet to be told, but expect it to resemble Mean Girls with van Persie in the Lindsay Lohan/Cady Heron role and Sneijder as the cliquey leader of The Plastics.

Oranje vs Denmark - Dutchie edition (June 9th, 2012)

Denmark blew Euro 2012’s Group of (Agonisingly Slow) Death wide open courtesy of Michael Krohn-Dehli’s goal in an astonishing 1-0 win over Oranje. A huge upset. Oranje pay dearly for their profligacy.
