Clouds darkened the skies at The Reds as 40229 spectators turned up for the match. Davide Lotito was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Herman Tuerlinckx and Tan Özbağ. Our studio analysts were correct. Thommie.nl has taken the field in a 2-5-3 alignment. The following players had been selected: Crone - van der Laak, van der Feen - Stalenczyk, Swärderberg, Teodorini, Beurskens, Honorato - Löwecke, Aalberts, Roman.

Cry "havoc" and let loose the dogs of war! Loco's will go to battle in a 4-4-2 formation. They fielded: Breed - Boote, Esser, Beek, Kruseman - Oudhoff, Kuilman, Sert, Baltink - Maris, Lahr.

Underestimation of the opposition made Thommie.nl players perform way below their normal capacity. Was it the hair gel? Was it a gift from the gods? Either way, the faithful won't care. Soaring like a Saturn V, N. van der Feen somehow got his head on a F. Roman moonshot from the corner and buried it in the back of the net. What grace! What power! Plant the flag for Thommie.nl, Neil Armstrong! The score is now 1 - 0. A magnificent combination in the middle resulted in Thommie.nl's D. Aalberts bringing the lead up to 2 - 0. 16 minutes into the match, the visitors' central line of defense had to look on as D. Aalberts ran straight through, knocking one home to make it 3 - 0 for Thommie.nl. Things were going from bad to worse for the visitors. P. Swärderberg was able to squirm through the central defense after 22 minutes and score, bringing the lead to 4 - 0. After a play down the right 23 minutes into the match, Thommie.nl's D. Aalberts unleashed a ferocious shot that smashed into the roof of the net - after going over the crossbar. 4 - 0 was the halftime score. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that Thommie.nl would have 91 percent possession in this half was spot on!

P. van der Laak gave Thommie.nl supporters even more to cheer about when he increased the lead to 5 - 0 after 51 minutes, following a good exchange of passes on the right that the away team failed to deal with. At this point, it was obvious that the players of Thommie.nl lowered the tempo and became more defensively oriented. Thommie.nl solidified their lead at the 65 minute mark, as W. Stalenczyk snaked the ball through the central line of defense and finished for 6 - 0. D. Aalberts increased Thommie.nl's lead to 7 - 0, connecting with a hooked ball from the right. The away fans are claiming handball, to no avail. He'd already scored two, and with the third, D. Aalberts had a hattrick! Thommie.nl managed to extend their lead to 8 - 0 when N. van der Feen slid in neatly from the left side and struck a fine shot past the away team's goalkeeper. Thommie.nl added another goal to their lead as G. Löwecke struck home for 9 - 0 after an attack from the left set him up unmarked in front of the keeper. Big paper red cards were being held up by the opposing supporters with 80 minutes on the clock after G. Löwecke's mistimed tackle from behind. The referee only showed the Thommie.nl player a yellow card though. The head of S. Baltink connected with a beautiful corner kick after 81 minutes. He wasn't shooting, though, but rather passing to L. Maris of Loco's who buried the shot for 9 - 1. 82 minutes had passed when Thommie.nl put themselves up 10 - 1 after the visiting defenders lost the ball to L. Beurskens, who came up from the left and proceeded to easily go around the goalkeeper and knock the ball home. Loco's had to make a substitution after 83 minutes. L. Maris apparently was hit by a thrown bottle of Schlitz by one of the opposing players' fans, and now reeks of blood and bad beer. While the coach remonstrated with the side official about the situation, A. Titouani finished his warmups and came on. Thommie.nl set the tempo, maintaining 92 percent of possession.

Thommie.nl's best player was F. Roman. Good thing G. Crone isn't a horse, because he'd surely be sent to the glue factory after that performance. M. Kruseman performed admirably for Loco's. I can't remember J. Breed ever having a worse night than he just had. The match ends 10 - 1.
