Leroy Fer to QPR?

After the play-off win back in May, QPR fans will have been hoping their transfer strategy wouldn't have reassembled a poor man's version of Real Madrid's 'Galacticos'. Rio Ferdinand signing began to see those fears - of ageing players on large wages - return, but the reported interest in the recently relegated Norwich City player Leroy Fer could see a remedy to those fears. Despite playing for a relegated side last season, Leroy Fer still saw his name announced in …

Netherlands v Costa Rica Preview | FIFA World Cup 2014: Quarter-Finals

Holland vs Chile Preview | FIFA World Cup 2014: Group B

Australia Vs Holland Preview | FIFA World Cup 2014: Group B

Australia Vs Holland Preview | FIFA World Cup 2014: Group B

This match offers a different proposition for both sides, with a win all but securing Holland a place in the last 16, while Australia need points to keep their slim qualification chances alive.

Spain vs Holland Match Preview | FIFA World Cup 2014 | Group B

Group B is a hotly anticipated group and it's easy to see why with the opening match being a repeat of the 2010 final. Of course Spain won on that occasion and they've gone from strength to strength since, winning their last three major tournaments, while Holland have struggled recently as they try and bring through a new generation of Dutch footballers. Both will be worrying about their group as they also have to face the much fancied Chile side, …

One Dimensional Netherlands Lose Again | Euro 2012 stats

The Netherlands now need a miracle to qualify from Group B after losing 2-1 to fierce rivals Germany. Bert van Marwijk made one change from the 1-0 defeat to Denmark, with Joris Mathijsen coming in to replace Ron Vlaar in central defence. Bert van Marwijk also kept faith with his favoured 4-2-3-1 formation, which meant Klass-Jan Huntelaar had to again settle for a place on the bench. The Dutch team started well and had their first real chance on 6 …
