St Johnstone fan studying in Eindhoven here. I was at the match last night and what a spectacle! I am lucky enough to have a PSV club card and taken them on as my Dutch team and this was my first match since I came here.
Firstly, I was hoping deep down that PSV had lost as I live 1km from the stadium and definitely would have been able to get a ticket for the Saints match but I don't think it is going to happen. PSV completely demolished them. I have not seen a bigger gubbing since we beat something like Hibs 5-1 back in 2010!
Honestly, Galatasaray were hot garbage. Should have been about 7-0. The amount of times that PSV got in behind the Galatasaray defense was unbelievable. I dont know who the rb and lb of Galatasaray were but they were not having a good time. Then again when you have players like Gotze, Zahavi and Madueke combining together, It is quite scary. Bare in mind this PSV team didn't have Malen or Dumfries in the squad last night. Both linked with big money moves to Everton and Dortmund respectively.
Looking at Galatasaray on twitter, a lot of fans were saying that they are that bad they cant even see them beating us with a poll saying 36% that Saints would win. Also a lot of talk that they are 6 signings from where they want to be. With CB RB, GK and DM being incredibly inadequate. Also Ryan Babel was bullied and had a terrible game and Arda Turan was anonymous. I think he is a really lazy player and maybe why it never worked out for him at Barca. Honestly, dont think Galatasaray were anything special however, PSV did look frightening and I am hoping that Celtic win so I can see Celtic get torn apart by PSV.
Tried to summarize this as short as possible but to end it off I didn't even realise Falcao or Feghouli even came on!! Maybe because Galatasaray couldn't get out of their half or I was enjoying myself too much with 5/6 pints of Bavaria which was allowed in the stands hahaha! Overall though what a match! I was hoping to catch us on a European tour and with my Dutch passport and living in mainland Europe I was hoping to get to see us but who knows what is in store for us!
