Zwolle vs Roda Kerkrade by OctopusKnut

Preview for the first round of the Dutch Eredivisie between PEC Zwolle and Roda JC.


Zwolle will start this season with their new coach John van 't Schip, who worked in the Australian league before. Previous season was not the best season for Zwolle, and they will definitely do better this season. So far they haven't lost a lot of key players. Striker Menig returned back to Ajax and midfielder Holla went to Twente. Lot of other players left the club but I think they were not that important for the team.


Big new signings for Zwolle are striker Parzyszek, who was the top scorer in the friendlies so far, goalkeeper Boer, defender Koppers and midfielder Bakker. All the transfers from both clubs can you find here:


Roda JC is very lucky to play Eredivisie this season after that horrible previous season. They managed to stay in the Eresivise because they beated MVV in the playoffs. Roda has also a new manager, Robert Molenaar, who came from Jupiler League club Volendam. Roda lost some key players so far. Midfielders Ajagun and van Hyfte and goalkeeper van Leer, who was without a doubt the best player from Roda. They bought Boere from Jupiler League club Oss, the top scorer of the competition.


At the end Zwolle got more quality as Roda and with new striker Parzyszek they bought a very good player. Roda always struggles to score and collected points because of their defenders and excellent goalkeeper van Leer, who left the club. Molenaar says he wants to attack with Roda but I have my doubts about Boere, because the Eredivisie is much better as the Jupiler League.

Not as safe as it loks. Cant say how these teams will start the season since they both had allot of changes and where very weak last year. Zwolle as well is a candidate for relegation this year. 1-1

Gustafson ex feyenoord is playing for Roda. Might cause allot of trouble for zwolle.

@DilanDog: thanks mate!

@Sam: I appreciate your opinion but Zwolle is in my eyes definitely not a candidate for relegation this season. Don't know if you've seen the game but Zwolle was simply better as Roda. My compliments for you about Gustafson, I wasn't sure what to expect from him because he almost never played for Feyenoord previous season. Today he was one of the best players on the pitch with two goals, looking forward to see more from him. Have a nice rest of the day mate.
