Just been talking to a mate in Netherlands and he tells me that this weekend was Super Weekend with PSV and Feyenoord and Ajax and AZ playing each other.
However there is a strike (probably work to rule/overtime ban) by Dutch police at the moment and therefore they could not provide the cover for such high profile matches. So AZ have not played since 9th December.
I pointed out that it is Everton fans coming to play AZ so they do not need that many police for us because we are just enjoying being on a European Tour. (Don't let us down lads!)
So we have our rezzies playing a fully rested team who need to win to stay in the competition. Well I would prefer the point from OT anyway

I’m not overly worried though, for our team has been excelling in all their past,grueling matches.But i still have this nagging feeling that I still haven’t seen the fiery form of Avdm when he played for Ajax. Trust me, I felt like being top of the world when news reached me that he was signing for my beloved blues..But guess that this was a clear case of empty promise. I for one feel that his career with Everton has come to an end....or do we still hear his famous "You shall see the real Avdm" line next season?
