van Persie, van der Vaart, Kuyt, Robben, and now Sneijder. That brilliant generation finally comes to a close.

When I first saw him at EURO 2004 I legit thought he's a 30 yo veteran.
EDIT: He already played like one for sure.

I loved those old national kits with the circles around the number that Netherlands and Portugal used.

They seriously deserved to win anything if it were not for the mediocre defenders we had in the 2000s and an absolutely incompetent manager when these players were in their 30s.
Now this generation seems to actually have decent defenders but we lack a midfield and forwards...

De Jong, Wijnaldum, van de Beek, Depay and Bergwijn, not that bad .
[–]【阿贾克斯】ChocomelC 102 points 14 hours ago
That midfield is nuts but we don't have any world class attackers. Bergwijn is unproven and Depay will probably never get there.

Sneijder to United rumours can finally come to an end

He could still be their manager

Sneijder to come out of retirement this year to play alongside Pogba in United midfield.
You heard it first here.

Wow this is sad. The day he signed for Galatasaray was incredible. We waited for two long weeks. It seemed impossible simply because no player of his calibre comes to turkey at that age. I was playing Fifa online, and my friend called to tell me he signed. I honestly can't remember the next few minutes, other than screaming pointlessly to my friend.
I remember the atmosphere in his first game in Arena. It was a derby but people were watching him warming up, rather than the game. There was a huge roar when he came on. It felt magical. I never experienced anything like it.
Him playing for my team was such a fluke. It will never happen again. During my lifetime I watched some pretty decent players playing for my team. Yet, Wesley's in a different stature. Right after Hagi actually.
Thank you. Hope you can get your relationship together with your wife. Thank you for that Juventus game and thank you for destroying Fener single handedly :).

This was the same time we got Didier fucking Drogba. That winter window felt magical...
[–]gica717 286 points 13 hours ago
Drogba was also huge but Sneijder was something else. Drogba came from china. He was still immense but man, getting Sneijder for 8 million was absurd and unbelievable.

The fact that Modric has won the Balon d'Or and Sneijder didn't is the biggest injustice ever
Sneijder played such an important role for you guys and was amazing throughout the entire season.
Meanwhile Modric had a shit season in 2018 compared to how he performed in the previous years with Real. He wasn't even Croatia's best player in the WC.
】supermoan 67 points 14 hours ago
who do you think was the best player for Croatia in wc? Genuinely asking
[–]【切尔西】DanTheLadiesManV2 198 points 13 hours ago
Modric. Hipsters will say Rakitic
