The Dutch Disease. No, the other one. The funny one.

I think a lot of us saw this coming. There is growing dissent in the Dutch camp. I'm linking a goal.com article so certainly take it with a grain of salt.

“Throw in the debate over whether Klaas-Jan Huntelaar should start instead of Robin van Persie and the Arsenal striker’s tense relationship with Wesley Sneijder, and you sense that knives are being sharpened and fingers being pointed.

Nobody has broken ranks to speak publicly, but that could change if the Netherlands suffer defeat on Wednesday. And it could get very uncomfortable for Van Marwijk.”

I don't know this journalist - but he seems to be on the level:

Van Marwijk's nightmare has come true. What all the Dutch journalists were nagging about for several weeks became reality. One of the main reasons why Van Marwijk has been able to keep all the players satisfied are the good results in the past four years.

It seemed inevitable that certain players would eventually become unhappy. Van der Vaart, for example, is the most experienced player of the current squad with 97 caps, and a player with his reputation simply wants to play at a big tournament like Euro 2012. No player has yet to publicly voice his dismay with the situation, but that seems to be only a matter of time at this point.

Okay, so mostly hearsay and nothing super public yet, but I wanted to flag this for everyone. I’m sure we all noticed that Huntelaar seemed really sharp as soon as he came on, nearly equalizing.

(P.s. the 'normal' dutch disease is kindof fucking up my country's economy and national unity, which is not funny)
