Things are beginning to look a little more right with our Eredivisie contest as well. Here's how things stand:
And in detail:
|AZ||25||Mounir el Hamdaoui (AZ)||7|
|Ajax||35||Luis Suarez (Ajax)||17|
|TOTAL (PTS + GOALS x 2)||108|
|AZ||25||Luis Suarez (Ajax)||17|
|PSV||39||Balazs Dzsudzsak (PSV)||8|
|TOTAL (PTS + GOALS x 2)||114|
|PSV||39||Luis Suarez (Ajax)||17|
|Ajax||35||Jon Dahl Tomasson (Feyenoord)||5|
|TOTAL (PTS + GOALS x 2)||118|
|Ajax||35||Keisuke Honda (VVV)||5|
|FC Utrecht||26||Mounir el Hamdaoui (AZ)||7|
|TOTAL (PTS + GOALS x 2)||85|
AZ seem to have stabilized their season, which is somewhat gratifying. Their Champions League hopes have been dashed, and their ticket to Europa league is hanging by a thread (that thread is a road win over Standard Liege on the last Champs League matchday). Instead, they seem to be focussing on the domestic campaign, which has yielded a string of good results.
Jeremain Lens (7 goals) has taken over the scoring burden for the almost-healed Mounir el Hamdaoui, and they have stopped leaking goals.
FC Twente continue to lead the league, thanks largely to the goal scoring exploits of Costa Rican forward Bryan Ruiz, but I don't expect that to last much longer. PSV are the class of the league, and Ajax keep scoring 5 goals a game against mid-table sides.
Things are close enough at the top to keep things interesting in the 7th or 8th best league in Europe.
