FTFA: Krijg de...! (get the...!): tyfus (tuberculosis); klere (cholera); pest (pest)

Errr...not quite. Krijg de pleuris/ tering is tuberculosis. Krijg de tyfus , is typhoid, and pest is the bubonic plague, or plague in general..

To be fair "Tering" is usually used as a version of f*ck....

/Swearing in Dutch sounds really venomous.

NED has been my second team since 1994.  And unless Pulisic is going to sacrifice another NAD, I'm gonna watch them relegate the US :(

ha.  Yeah, live action, i was like, "ooof, that's gonna leave a mark."  on slo-mo replay, his instant reaction, you knew he wasn't flopping.

CSB:  3-4 months ago went to a Phoenix Rising FC game (basically, single A / double AA baseball, i think we feed into the leage MLS uses as their minor league.  still fun to watch though.)  LA Galaxy 2 (or whomever) was the opponent.  By dumb luck, my pal and I we walking right where the players enter the stadium, and the ushers roped off the entrance and we watched both sides come in.  Then, the coaches.  Landon Freaking Donovan. I had no idea.  "Holy shiat!  Landon Donovan!"  He's signing autographs, shaking hands, and he's walking right towards me.  he's about 3-4 feet away.......and then switches to the other side of the cordon.  dammit!!!

/taller than you'd think.  6'2"?  I'm only 5'9" and he had a few inches on me.  I thought he was a little guy but ...yeah.

All American Commenter: Do we got a shot at beating them ?


Yes, but Turner would likely have to play like Howard did against Belgium and we have to find more shots and more than 1 goal.  And I don't know where the scoring comes from

ooh, short answer yes with an if, long answer no with a but

Thanks, figure it was better to ask on here then try and watch people on ESPN yell at each other about it.

All American Commenter: Do we got a shot at beating them ?


Yes and no. van Dijk (DF) and de Jong (MF) are arguably the best at their position in the world. Add in Memphis Depay and the fact that this will be their famous coach's last hurrah and it will certainly be tough.

Add in their pedigree and it seems unlikely. But it's the knockout stages, any time is going to be like this

'Lul' is one of the many creative ways to curse at someone in Dutch.

So we should beat them for the lulz?

All American Commenter: Do we got a shot at beating them ?


Yes, the Dutch have historically been very good for a very long time, but the current team is still unproven. They've missed the previous tournament in Russia, and got dumped out of last year's Euro by the Czech Republic (which didn't qualify for this WC).

They have a few world class players, but nobody really knows how they will respond under pressure on the big stage.

That QF game against Brazil in Dallas was great. I got to go to that one and the Sweden-Saudi Arabia round of 16 match.

Pulisic can probably relate to this one.

I never thought he was that tall.  I love "Hurdy Gurdy Man" and "Mellow Yellow."

/and that "Atlantis" one used in Goodfellows

Don't worry. As soon as the US is knocked out the rest of the country will pretend they didn't care either and ignore it.

Visiting my grandparents in Holland every year since I was born, I learned a lot of choice words in Dutch. Klootzakwas a favorite, but instead of a-hole, used it more for dumbass, Trut was frequent as was lul (d1ck). Oldest friends in the world are in Holland.

As to the soccer game, I am torn. Always root for the home team, but the Orange have been my rooting interest since the 70's whenever I bothered to care about soccer, because they (My oma and opa and friends and the country) were so passionate about it, particularly Johan Cruyff and Total Football. But they're like the Vikings, get to the finals but never win. But I hope The Netherlands win, only because I think it would mean more to The Netherlands if they were to go on and win than it would be if the US team were to do the same. I know there are passionate fans here, especially in KC, but it's still down the in popularity compared to other sports. Amazing what the Netherlands achieves in sports, including the Olympics, from a country of 17 million and smaller than West Virginia.
