Stijn Schaars had Saturday after the shutdown of sc Heerenveen in the semi-finals of the play-offs against Utrecht, not a good word to say about the format of the battle for European football.

The leader of the Frisians would not long dwell upon the elimination of his team, but shows itself not in favour of the play-offs. “You should not post about whining, we know in advance all the rules”, the leader of the Frisians against NUsport.

“But I think you need to think who you Europe submit. The most stable teams would Europe have to go, and a team that is the fourth ending is more stable than a team that is ninth is finished.”

“When you start as a Dutch club performs well, it makes sense that your best players have to be removed. That is, the stability is also not good, while that is correct is important in Europe.”

Of a failed season for Heerenveen wants the midfielder not to speak. But content is Scarce. “We wanted to make the play-offs, the objective is actually achieved. But we were first, fourth and then dropped to the ninth place dropped, which is disappointing.”

By that negative spiral in the second half of the season, went the Marbles according to Sparse with a feeling that the play-offs. “If you are in the winter break, fourth state, you want to over look, but that turns suddenly to. When you first twelfth state, and you end up eighth, everyone is in a hosannastemming, that is the curve.”

Artificial grass

Last week, the captain of Wigan the initiative for a call to the KNVB to natural grass to the terms of this license for Eredivisieclubs. That statement was supported by the other captains of the clubs in the Premier league on normal grass.

“I noticed that more and more boys were expressing themselves in the media. They do not like to be on artificial turf to play,” says Scarce. “When I’m with the VVCS came in contact and I have asked whether they can wrists how to do this well. If everyone is against it, you have to do something about it.”

Scarce understand that it is mainly for smaller clubs may have consequences for the cost. “But that does not take away the fun and the way the game is played has changed. There we must now speak.”
