What happens to PSV Eindhoven?

It is said that the Eredivisie is a gatekeeping. That between Ajax, PSV and Feyenoord are usually hand out titles. Something true if seen in the last fifty seasons only AZ Alkmaar and Twente have broken that trend. However, It does not appear that this year one of the big three Dutch league will strive to continue to maintain this hegemony. El culpable, el PSV Eindhoven, the second most successful team of all Netherlands 21 leagues and one of the few to know what it is to win European Cup and UEFA Cup.

A great club, trampoline usually big stars among which have highlighted Romario, Ronaldo, Van Basten, van Nistelroy, Ronald Koeman No Ruud Gullit, what, however, possibly lives which are the lowest moments in its history. Ninth located in the Eredivisie, Phillip Cocu whole and has seven games without a win in their worst performance is much, long time. Seven parties that have left thirteen points Vitesse, the last team to perform at the Phillips Stadion visit and thrashing Atletico by a convincing 2-6. Defeat however left something positive. The image of some players apologizing to the supporters and fans cheering their players in bad times.

Something never seen in recent times for a team that has been in Europe in recent 41 years and claims to have been uninterruptedly among the top five in the Eredivisie since the campaign 1971-72. Of course, the team will not be able to get the win since last 6 October is worrying and there are already many voices calling for change because the trend is to go down positions.

One of the causes of this unprecedented situation is obviously the low season Martens (Naples) o Strootman (Roma) and little input or underperformance of their arrivals (And Maher especially haze) and the top of the team(with the head Toivonen). Of course, the biggest problem is concentrated in the defensive line. We are talking about a team that has received 24 goals in 16 up meetings and has a young and inexperienced staff in addressing such situations.

Think PSV may descend is a utopia in a league as the Dutch, where a roll ensures you fight for the top positions, but doubt that it is rare to see PSV in these spaces intermediate zone classification. And even more, It is rare to see a set that we just brings magic and remarkable things beyond the promising Zakaria Bakkali. Yes indeed, he still remains his player 12, the loyal fans this weekend again leave one of the most poignant images of the entire European session.

The crowd encouraged PSV with a banner reading: "despierta ya".
