Last season was more or less in line with expectations. At the time of the forced stop of the league they were in 14th position and therefore would have avoided relegation. An excellent result for a newly promoted team. The Enschede side surprised everyone with an excellent season start, then inevitably lost form, however, they were never sucked into the relegation zone. Coach Gonzalo García struggled to find the right formation the players at his disposal. He started decisively with a very offensive system of play such as the 4-3-3, then often switched to a 3-man (or 5) defence. During the summer the club decided to replace him with the much more experienced Ron Jans who will probably begin with the 4-2-1-3. Jans will have a very difficult task considering that the two best players have been sold. Striker Aitor Cantalapiedra went to Panathinaikos and trequartista Haris Vuckic to Real Zaragoza. The two players were the past season's top scorers with 7 and 11 goals respectively. They also lost regular players in other areas of the pitch - defenders Peet Bijen and Calvin Verdonk and midfielders Javier Espinosa and Oriol Busquets. The arrivals are all loan deals, some of which are very interesting such as strikers Vaclav Cerny and Danilo, respectively from Utrecht and Ajax U21. New defenders Nathan Markelo and Kik Pierie are from Everton U23 and Ajax - all players with good prospects but still very young and therefore inexperienced.

Target


The team has totally changed composition compared to last season. They lost their pillars and changed coach, therefore Twente are among the main candidates for relegation.

Season Review
2020/2021

№10: FC Twente

If past season's 14th place (at the time of suspension due to pandemic) could be considered a positive result as a newly promoted team, this year's 10th leaves a bad taste in the mouth. Not that the expectations before the start were better, after all the team had undergone a radical change during the summer, including a new coach, but in the first months they had shown considerable potential. The Tukkers have practically played two different seasons, in 2020 they seemed a young and bubbly team capable of causing troubles to stronger teams (they defeated Ajax 2-1 in Amsterdam, one of the only two defeats of the champions), in 2021 they became a fearful and predictable team that had an unexpected meltdown. In the first 15 games they had collected 27 points, in the following 13 just 14. Coach Ron Jans has probably made a mistake in always keeping the same system of play without ever trying other solutions. In KNVB Beker they lasted only one round, immediately eliminated by second tiers De Graafschap. This performance went hand in hand with that of Ajax's loaner Danilo who in the first 15 rounds had scored 11 goals and provided 5 assists, while in the last 13 he provided no assists and scored 6 goals. The many injuries suffered by important players such as Kik Pierie, Julio Pleguezuelo and especially Vaclav Cerny also had an impact. In this strange season, some interesting youngsters have had the opportunity to show off, such as goalkeeper Drommel, already sold to PSV, left-back Oosterwolde, midfielders Ilic and Zerrouki. While the arrival in January of winger Narsingh from Feyenoord was a total disappointment.
