Feyenoord beat PSV 2-1 at De Kuip over the weekend to whittle down Eindhoven’s lead at the top of the Eredivisie to just three points, but it was the guff that followed the match which has gained the most attention.

Having already had a bit of a barney on the pitch during a tetchy match, PSV’s Jeremaine Lens was caught on ‘tunnel-cam’ lurking at the top of the stairs for Joris Mathijsen to come in from the pitch and, after waiting for some time, Lens pounced on the Feyenoord centre-half, grabbing a handful of Mathijsen’s shirt before a multi-man fracas ensued…

The scuffle seemed to end amicably enough, though Feyenoord certainly made sure that the PSV squad could hear them celebrating their victory at the far end of the corridor.

    Wesley Verhoek en Lex Immers like to keep reminding people that they’re from Den Haag. Even some shirt pulling can lead to this with them around. I do like the Feyenoord assistant saying how he’s much tougher than those kids.

    Are PSV the most unsympathetic side in football? Lens, Van Bommel, Toivonen… All utter shits.

    Erm… am I missing something here? It looks to me like a guy wants to have a chat with someone who he has a beef with, and is ignored, so he holds him there to try to talk to him… and then it gets blown way way out of proportion. You can’t judge anyone on this, it could happen in any game. Calling people utter shits for this is like having a go at contact sport
