Roda 3 – 1 VVV: Home side more efficient, but VVV show their potential

March 10, 2012


Coming off four straight wins, VVV went into this derby clash with some expectations. New manager Ton Lokhoff took over at the end of 2011, to see his team take five wins from the first seven matches in charge, only losing away at relegation rivals Excelsior and newly promoted RKC. Away at Roda, who came […]

Roda 2 – 1 Twente: Adriaanse’s first defeat in a tactically surprising match

September 11, 2011


Two tactically tuned formations played out an interesting match, where Roda countered their way towards beating their opponents in the second half.

In this match, however, PSV manager Rutten managed to find the solution during […]

Roda 1 – 1 ADO: The 4-4-2 diamond doesn’t help Roda at home

December 11, 2010


Roda remain unbeaten at home, but fail to win a home game again. Difficulties to convert their possession into chances which seem connected to their formation and playing style seem related to their 3-6-0 home series. ADO replaced missing winger Kubik with Vicento, a similar type of player, rather than making adjustments to their system […]

Roda 1 – 0 Groningen: Lack of a playmaker breaks up Groningen

November 28, 2010


Groningen went into this away match at Roda knowing that a victory would take them to the second place in the Eredivisie. Roda, on the other hand, defended their unbeaten-at-home status. A match between two clubs with fairly different formations was certain to be among the more tactically interesting of the weekend. Roda’s 4-4-2 diamond […]
