Even if you don't manage to get that top 2 place the season has been a very impressive one. The hard work this season will set up a great foundation.


We get back to an undefeated month and it helped that we only had 3 games. Against Fortuna Sittard we went 1-0 up in the 16th minute through Majer before they pulled one back 4 minutes later. Buitink then tucked one away from the penalty spot to put us back ahead but sadly they got a 2nd in the 75th minute which was probably a fair result in the end. Against Zwolle they went ahead in the 9th minute before our main man got on the score sheet with a brace to put us ahead. Alvarez then got in on the action in the 72nd minute as well before they pulled another one back in the 77th minute.

The final game of the match Hajek got us off to an quick start with a headed goal after only 4 minute and then you guessed it Buitink scored the rest with another excellent hat-trick. Sparta Rotterdam did manage a consolation goal though to cost us a clean sheet.

Buitink has been on fire over the course of the season and has scored 33 goals in 32 games which earned him a call up to the national team where he made a goal scoring debut. He is on his way to great things and hopefully we can hold onto him



Jack, Eoin97, Griffo Looks like Ajax are just far too strong for us just now and running away with it.

ScottT, TheLFCFan Second is is certainly an option and hopefully we can hold onto it over the final games
33 goals in 32 games for Buitink and a goal on his international debut. What. A. Player :0
Buitink has been on blistering form! He's been a key part in you doing so well this season and has earned his call-up.
Buitink is bound to be attracting some serious attention across Europe.
Still in amazing position all things considering, interested to know what you plan to do to bridge the gap in the future between yourself and Ajax
Was surprised you managed to keep him in January but if you somehow manage to keep Buitink in the summer that'll be almost a miracle at this point. Either way you will have a world class striker or some serious money in return.


WE are finishing the league strongly to ensure that Ajax don't win the league to early and we start off with a good result against VVV-Venlo as Unuvar scores a quick fire double in the 12th and then 14th minute before Buitink gets the final goal. Next again FC Emmen Buitink is at it again with another hat-trick this boy is why we have been doing so well. Bella-Kotchap gets the 4th for us before Emmen get a consolation goal late on. The month is rounded off with a big win for us against Twente as we get revenge on them for knocking us out the cup. The 2 goals come from Buitink and Alvarez and they prove vital as this win confirms that we will have Europa League football at a minimum next month.




We have one stand out player in the intake in Tom Cohen

He looks like he could have a promising future ahead of him and could one day take over from Buitink if he leaved the club.

Eoin97 Jack ScottT TheLFCFan Buitink has been key and there is now interest flowing in so hopefully we can keep hold of him.
Giffo Will all be down to the transfer window and holding onto our best players or replacing them with better ones.
A fantastic season all round, doing admirably well in the league, ensuring at least Europa League football. Buitink is an absolute god for you! And that player Tom Cohen from Israel looks incredible ;)
Impressive form. Cohen looks a very decent prospect. It seems like second-place is all but yours.
A superb month for you there and you have now all but secured Champions League qualification! Go round off the season with a couple of wins ;)
Could potentially end the season just two points off Ajax, which would be remarkable! Cohen looks like he could be quite the asset for you in the future - whether he plays a big role on the pitch or as a massive bargaining chip in the transfer market.
Tom Cohen is a very Israeli name isn't it haha
It's been a great season and Unuvar is looking an inspired signing already. Cohen is certainly a very talented prospect, hopefully he develops well.


We have two big games this month to finish the season off and first was against Ajax who in my opinion had just given up after already winning the league. Gilmour opens the scoring in the 1st minute to show how important he has been to us this season. Buitink and Linssen then get quick fire goals in the 76th and 79th minutes to give us our first win over Ajax. We round the season off with a game against Willem II who race to a 2-0 lead in the opening 20 minutes but luckily we keep going and the heads of the players don't drop as Buitink pulls a goal back in the 32nd minute before Bella-Kotchap for us to go in at half time all square. Alvarez then gets the winner in the 55th minute to round off an excellent finish to the season to see Vitesse finish with their best ever position in the league.



Its not a great budget to be honest and we will probably now look to offload a player or two to enable us to sign some new players to replace the loans we have in just now.

Season Review


Its safe to say why Buitink was the fans player and the young player of the season as without him we wouldn't have performed so well. Bella-Kotchap did remarkably well since coming in in January and cement his place in our defence.

The big talking point of the season was Buitink managing a massive 40 goals in 34 games and this wins him the big award in Europe claiming to Golden Boot at only 19. We now have a number of European Giants declaring interest to try and sway his attention.

Eoin97 ScottT Justice Griffo TheLFCFan Jack Well the season is over and we now have the qualifying rounds of the Champions League to contend with. With Cohen I'm sure he'll get his chances over the next couple of seasons.
