One point in it now and you seem to be in great form. Hopefully you can keep it up! Some good signings there that will certainly help your bid.
A perfect January for Vitesse! February will be a very very very tough month but the new recruitments will be a major positive. Aleña and Arezo, in particular, should add a bit of X-Factor to the side - your fans will be singing their names!
Here we go! *rubs hands* time to have a shot at the title
A terrific January! Can you keep it up and pip Dutch giants Ajax to the title?


First things first this month after making it through the transfer window with receiving no offers for Buitink he has decided that he no longer wants to leave the club and is even willing to sign a new contract which now ties him to the club until 2025.

We get the month off to a good start as Araujo, Urzi and Cohen manage to see off Az while Ajax drop points to NAC Breda to let us go top of the table for the first time this season. Cohen then adds to his goal tally against VVV-Venlo to see us into the semi finals which see's us meet club expectations in the competition. Buitink and Majer then get the goals to see us beat Twente to hold onto top spot in the league. the big game of the month though was the home match against Dortmund and Urzi bent them over and shafted them as he scored and excellent hat-trick in the opening half hour to give us a massive win and all but our progress in the competition.

Against Utrecht we rotate the squad with the next match against Dortmund and it doesn't pay off as Gilmuor gets the only goal of the game and Ajax reclaim top spot. Against Dortmund we played really well but were undone by a penalty but luckily the 1st leg result see's us through to play Napoli. We round the month off with a tough match against Ado Den Haag as we went 4-0 up through 2 goals from Cohen, Bella-Kotchap and Schiappacasse after 64 minutes but in the final 15 minutes of the game our heads dropped and we just managed to hold onto the win. The other upside is Ajax ended up losing their match so we finish the month off top of the league.



TheLFCFan Yeah if we sell them for a big profit I'll be happy.
Jack Its amazing some of the players that appear on the transfer list when not given the chance at the bigger clubs.
Justice Lets hope the all work out but some have certainly already made an impact.
ScottT Griffo Eoin97We've finally got the lead in the title race but can we hold onto it
Quite simply stunning! The win against Dortmund, the new league leaders! There has been a power shift over in the Netherlands I think! ;)
YES! GET F*CKING IN THERE! The league is coming back to Vitesse and so is the Europa League! EUROPE WILL LEARN TO FEAR THE NAME VITESSE!
Well done. Ajax appear to be slipping from their usual standards. A massive victory against Dortmund but to draw Napoli in the very next round is cruel. Another tough challenge awaits.
Wow really stunning that you're first, I'm from Belgium so I closely follow Holland too, very nice! Do you still have the agreement with Chelsea? Impressive win against Dortmund
Cohen is doing wonders this year, would love to see how he has developed. The league has to be the aim from this point right?

We start off welcoming Napoli and we get off to a quick start with Gilmour opening the scoring in the 1st minute. They equalise just before half time to give us a wrrying draw. We nearly throw away a 3-0 lead after Buitink and Ayovi put us ahead but we manage to hold on. We travel ot Italy and put in an unbeliveable performance thanks to a goal from Majer and then 2 late goals from Urzi and Araujo to see us into the Quarter Finals of the Europa League.

We're straight into another big game as we face PSV in the cup and we fall 1-0 behind but goals from van Ginkel, Alvarez and young Cohen see's us cruise to a 3-1 win. We then drop points against Heracles but thankfully Ajax have dropped them as well. We round the month off with a win against Emmen with goals from Barca graduate Perez and Alena.




We don't have the best of youth intakes with the top prospect of the intake being below and still not looking like he will make the first team.

Jack Justice ScottT Its all in our hands now. Got to make sure we don't somehow throw it all away
Wolf Yeah we still have the link which is how we have managed to hold onto Billy Gilmour for two seasons but want to say he will be in their first team next season.
TheLFCFan He has certainly stepped up with Buitink's head being turned all season. I'm not sure I would love a Europa League trophy as well. Here is Cohen's stats so far and he is certainly developing well.

I think you've placed the wrong image in place of the league table ;)

Fantastic results against Napoli. There's no stopping you. A treble is on the cards!

No idea what your on about with the league table haha
What a win over Napoli! That has to be the highlight of the season so far!
A back and fourth battle for the title and progress in Europe, really interested to see how both competitions end up for you
