If Greece get a draw it will be a good result. If we can get a win in Holland it will almost lock up qualification as we would be 6pts ahead of the Dutch and have the head to head tiebreaker.

It's great to have hopes raised heading into difficult matches such as this.  At least we go there with belief we can get a result.  Still, if they don't manage a win or even a draw that we don't get too down.  

The team has come a long way it looks like very quickly but Dutch NT even without appearing at their strongest do we really know?  Obviously a huge match for them as they at home as they must see us now as their most direct opponent for 2nd place.

Baldock ruled out due to injury, that's a blow. My confidence in us getting a result has dropped with the news, Rota is poor defensively and gets found out often. In a game where we are going to have to be solid at the back, it does hurt our chances. Going to need a big defensive shift from Masouras (which he is capable of)and the mids to support Rota at right-back. 

No surprises in the reported starting XI but of course we won't know for sure until an hour before kick-off. Mavropanos is suspended due to the send off v France in June.

Huge blow not having Baldock and Mavropanos. Rota will get exposed big time. Poyet during his pre-game press conference said when asked if they will try to attack more "It all depends if we have this one injury that i was told that may make us change our game plan" he was talking about Baldock. he knows now they cant be that aggressive down the right side with Rota back there. Badlock was doing a good job joining the play and crossing the ball in.

We are playing horrible. Yellow already for Siopis

First few minutes are always the hardest in games like this

VIP-Box. The other one was Hans van Breukelen. Euro 1988 champion and penaltykiller! Know your classics, @PaokCT

The regular fans drink beer in plastic glasses.
