Worldwide Frédérique Matla (25) has at all times been somebody who says all of it. Sunday afternoon after the frustration within the Wagener Stadium in opposition to Amsterdam (2-0 loss) – Den Bosch’s second loss in a row – isn’t any completely different. “This was completely pointless.”

Three video games after the beginning of the competitors, it usually makes little sense to dwell extensively on the place within the rating. You would name it scoreboard journalism when you place lots of worth on Den Bosch’s ninth place. However it’s in fact unusual what’s going on with the 21-time nationwide champion. Marieke Dijkstra’s group has not but discovered the magic this early within the season.

“We’re not used to beginning the competitors with three factors from three video games. That’s in fact unworthy of Den Bosch’, says Matla. ‘However I don’t assume we ought to be too involved with the rankings. Above all, now we have to have a look at ourselves. How come we lose 2-0 right here?’ sighs the participant who herself has not reached her high degree in latest matches.

Departure of Welten, Van Geffen and Keetels

It’s about half an hour after the sport. Within the meantime, many of the anger with the attacker of the Dutch nationwide group has subsided. However at occasions the frustration in regards to the defeat is in her eyes once more. When she is requested whether or not there’s a connection between the poor outcomes of Den Bosch and the departure of Lidewij Welten (Kampong), Margot van Geffen (HGC) and Marloes Keetels (discontinued), this additionally considerably rekindles the hearth in her.

‘I wouldn’t say there’s a connection between them. In fact our roster would have been wider and stronger if they’d nonetheless performed for us. In that regard, now we have sacrificed high quality. I feel that’s clear. However that doesn’t imply we immediately need to lose these sorts of matches. We nonetheless have sufficient high quality to attract or win right here. The identical goes for final week’s sport in opposition to SCHC [3-1 loss] . I feel we actually have to take issues into our personal palms. We simply can’t let this occur to us.’

Defensive errors

In her evaluation of what went incorrect on Sunday, Matla roughly touches on two essential factors. One in every of them is in regards to the private errors that had been made within the again. All through the match, the defenders of Den Bosch had been briefly masking they usually often nibbled a ball from the stick of attackers reminiscent of Marijn Veen and Felice Albers. However within the ultimate eight minutes of the sport, some private errors unnecessarily led to the targets of Fiona Morgenstern and Michelle Fillet, she stated.

“You might not at all times be goal relating to your individual membership, however I feel this defeat was actually pointless. In my opinion we had management over the sport. That’s why I feel it’s such a disgrace that we conceded these two targets on the finish. We will solely blame ourselves for that. These targets got here method too simply.’

Matla continues to be at zero targets

The opposite level Matla makes is in regards to the assault. After three video games, Den Bosch has solely scored twice. Matla has not scored a single purpose this season. She says she agrees with the criticism that she has not but delivered what is predicted of her.

‘Individuals count on me to at all times rating usually. That’s okay too. I’m additionally essential of my very own enjoying. We’ll take a superb take a look at why it doesn’t work for me and why it won’t work for the remaining. These are additionally robust matches to play. Besides in opposition to Amsterdam, we performed in opposition to SCHC and HGC, you don’t simply win with 5 targets distinction. However ultimately you need to rating as soon as’, says Matla.

‘Maybe it’s an accumulation of a number of issues. Did I’ve alternatives immediately that I ought to have taken? Aside from these two penalty corners, actually. Final week in opposition to SCHC I truly didn’t get an opportunity. Each then and now, the ball didn’t usually enter the circle. We now have to critically examine how it’s potential that I, or the opposite strikers, have so few alternatives. Are we not free sufficient, are we within the incorrect place, or are the balls not performed or seen? If we begin having good conversations about this, I’m positive issues will work out ultimately.’
