Feyenoord FC Trip Sept 24

First day in Rotterdam. Canals, windmills and lots of bikers.  Commute to work, get the kids to the park, Rotterdam has a network of bike lanes to reach your destination and they are in heavy use.

Next stop we got the boys over to the Feyenoord training ground for league matches for the Feyenoord 17 & 16 boys.  17’s - Feyenoord vs. AZ Alkmaar.  16’s Feyenoord vs. Vitesse.  The Feyenoord teams have a distinct style of play with a 4-3-3 formation building through the 3 man midfield and emphasizing dynamic wing play.  However, they would quickly bypass the midfield to the mobile forwards if the opposition crowded the midfield, making the playing area small.  All the teams were highly organized and played quickly.
