history [edit ]

foundation garment and first decades ( 1913–1962 ) [edit ]

PSV ‘s first league winning team in 1929 To serve the indigence for activities with Philips employees, the company founded its own football team in 1910 : the Philips Elftal. Its ground was the Philips Sportpark, located on the same location as the present day stadium. Financial tumult and worker strikes led to a immediate demise of the team and in 1913, its successor emerged, Philips Sport Vereniging, founded on 31 August. [ 3 ] It was the sidereal day that Philips organized celebrations and sports competitions in light of the centennial defeat of the french in the Napoleonic Wars. It was not until 1916, however, that the football department switched its name from Philips Elftal to PSV. [ 4 ] Because of World War I, the first base possibility to enter a league was in the 1915–16 season. The clubhouse ‘s foremost always equal was a 3–2 frustration against Willem II Reserves on 19 September 1915. The team did achieve promotion that season to a newly created Third Division of the Brabantian FA. Under the guidance of coach Wout Buitenweg, PSV were promoted in 1918 and 1921 angstrom well, finally reaching the Eerste Klasse. The team was relegated in 1925, but its least sandpiper in the Second Division entirely lasted one class when PSV were promoted again. Since 1926, PSV has always played in the highest possible domestic league. [ 5 ] [ 6 ] [ 7 ] That year, defender Sjef avant-garde Run was brought in and a year late Jan van den Broek joined PSV, two players that would shape the police squad in the coming years. [ 8 ] Behind the scenes, Frans Otten became president of the stallion PSV sports union. He was responsible for bringing the cabaret to a newly flat with new accommodations and stadium expansions. After winning the district league in 1929, PSV entered the championship play-offs. In that rival, it won six out of eight matches. A 5–1 succeed against Velocitas from the city of Groningen meant that PSV was crowned league champions for the first time. [ 9 ] In the follow three years, PSV won the zone league every year, but it could not win the play-offs until 1935. In that class, the team secured the second backing always in a 2–1 victory against DWS. [ 8 ] Due to World War II, attendances decreased importantly and in 1940, PSV musician Johan Brusselers died in combat. [ 10 ] After the war, PSV signed two modern strikers : Piet Fransen in 1948 and Coen Dillen in 1949. [ 11 ] In 1950, PSV got its first post-war achiever when the team defeated HFC Haarlem in the KNVB Cup final ; the equal ended in 4–3 after extra-time. [ 12 ] A year belated, PSV won the zone title after EVV failed to win their final match. flush though coach Sam Wadsworth resigned during the championship play-offs, the title was won after a 2–1 succeed over Willem II. The 1950–51 season was Dillen ‘s breakthrough, scoring 21 times and earning the nickname “ The Canon ”. [ 13 ] Besides Dillen and Fransen, a memorable player of the early 1950s success was goalkeeper Lieuwe Steiger, who ended up playing 383 matches for PSV. [ 14 ] In 1955, PSV became the first Dutch club to enter the european Champion Clubs ‘ Cup. The two matches against Rapid Wien ended in 1–6 and 1–0. [ 11 ] other achiever in the 1950s remained lacking but in the 1956–57 season, Dillen scored 43 times, a dutch record that placid stands today. [ 15 ] The approaching 1960s marked a transformation in player ‘s inheritance : the team went from by and large Brabantian men to players nationally. spokesperson for this policy were defender Roel Wiersma, who arrived in 1954 and captained the team for a decade, and Piet van five hundred Kuil, who came from Ajax for the equivalent of € 59,000 ( PSV ‘s then-highest transfer fee ). [ 16 ] [ 17 ] Dillen left the golf club in 1961 after being club acme scorer every class from 1953 to 1961. In 1962, Otten besides decided to quit as president of the sports union. By then, board extremity Ben vanguard Gelder had gradually started to mold the club in his means. Throughout the next two decades, he became creditworthy for turning PSV into a full-fledged professional constitution. [ 18 ]

Van five hundred Kuijlen era and UEFA Cup victory ( 1963–1978 ) [edit ]

The PSV squad ( 1963 ) In the 1962–63 season, marking PSV ‘s 50-year anniversary, the baseball club appointed Bram Appel as the new coach. The first results were black, however, with a mere six points earned from the beginning six fixtures. A sudden revival led to a first position at the winter break and a 5–2 victory over Ajax in June meant that PSV could celebrate its fourthly league title, with Pierre Kerkhofs leading the goal scorekeeper charts with 22 goals. [ 16 ] [ 19 ] The pursue year, PSV ended second in the league but more importantly, reached the Europa Cup I quarter-finals for the beginning time, where it was eliminated by FC Zürich. Appel remained coach for five years ; the position was later on followed up with short stints by Milan Nikolić and Wim Blokland. [ 15 ] Willy van five hundred Kuijlen was signed in 1964, who produced 23 league goals in 1966 and became the league ‘s top scorekeeper at senesce 20. [ 19 ] [ 20 ] between 1968 and 1972, Kurt Linder coached PSV. His team reached two Dutch cup finals and the semi-finals of the european Cup Winners ‘ Cup. Van five hundred Kuijlen had trouble oneself fulfilling his promise after an encouraging career start in the 1960s, however, partially because of a miss of chemistry between him and Linder ‘s coarse coach style. The early 1970s in football were dominated by Ajax and Feyenoord and it was not until the appointment of Kees Rijvers as coach in 1972 that would mark the startle of increasing achiever for PSV. With Van five hundred Kuijlen and goalkeeper Jan van Beveren as the stars of the team, Rijvers created a new team by signing Ralf Edström, Gerrie Deijkers and the twins Willy and René van five hundred Kerkhof. Things improved for Van five hundred Kuijlen when Rijvers built the team around him, giving him a unblock role in the process. Van five hundred Kuijlen, a technical musician, formed a successful striker partnership with Edström, who was famed for his bearing ability. It led to a dutch cup victory in 1974, and after a blistering season start ( no frustration in the beginning temper one-half ) and 28 goals by Van five hundred Kuijlen. PSV besides won the league for the fifth meter in 1975 .
A year late, PSV managed to win its foremost doubly. With defender Huub Stevens joining the team, the league title was secured after a 4–1 result against Feyenoord. Earlier, a 1–0 victory over Roda JC meant that PSV won the home cup american samoa well. In the european Cup, the final examination was lone narrowly missed after a 1–0 sum loss against Saint-Étienne in the semi-finals. [ 15 ] [ 21 ] After the two back-to-back titles, PSV ended second in 1977. The adopt year, Edström left the team but PSV however enjoyed a hard league campaign. In April 1978, the team secured the title without a unmarried loss. The domestic cup ended early after a shocking 1–6 first round loss against FC Wageningen ( PSV ‘s biggest home personnel casualty ever to go steady ). The UEFA Cup campaign proved to be more successful ; after wins against Glenavon, Widzew Łódź, Eintracht Braunschweig and 1. FC Magdeburg, the team faced Barcelona. A 3–0 acquire in the first leg was nullified by the Spaniards in the return leg, but a individual goal by Nick Deacy at Camp Nou meant that PSV could progress with a 4–3 aggregate succeed. The two-legged final against Bastia first produced a scoreless draw in the beginning couple. The return leg in Eindhoven ended in a 3–0 winnings, with goals by Willy van de Kerkhof, Deijkers and Van five hundred Kuijlen providing PSV its first european trophy. [ 22 ]

Hiddink and the european Cup victory ( 1979–1989 ) [edit ]

Guus Hiddink as coach of PSV in 1988 After the UEFA Cup victory, the team chemistry started to suffer, which was reflected in the results. not long after a 6–0 UEFA Cup passing against Saint-Étienne, Rijvers was sacked and the police squad disintegrated. [ 22 ] Van Beveren, infelicitous with the declining success and Rijvers ‘ departure, left for the United States after 291 league games and years of captainship. [ 21 ] Van Gelder besides quit in 1980 and was replaced by Kees Ploegsma. even though PSV invested in players like Hallvar Thoresen and Jurrie Koolhof, success remained absent. Thijs Libregts ‘ ( coach from 1980 until 1983 ) highest league position was the moment position in the 1981–82 season, and in 1983, Jan Reker took over. A clash between Van five hundred Kuijlen and Libregts led to the erstwhile ‘s passing in 1982 after closely 18 seasons at the golf club. [ 20 ] [ 23 ] In 1985, president Jacques Ruts and Ploegsma decided on a change of direction : Hans Kraay became the new director of football ( supervising Reker in 1985–86, and taking over wholly in 1986–87 ) and PSV started to sign players with dash, like Ruud Gullit, Søren Lerby, Gerald Vanenburg and Eric Gerets. Gullit, who quickly was appointed as captain, contributed to the team that headed the league table for the majority of the 1985–86 Eredivisie and claimed the claim after an 8–2 win against Go Ahead Eagles. Being unhappy with his personal development, Gullit heavily criticized PSV and Kraay in a March 1987 interview. The management ‘s subsequent admonitory was deemed besides lenient by Kraay, who resigned. Gullit ‘s sift relationship with the club meant that he left for Milan in the summer for a world read fee of €7.7 million. [ 24 ] Earlier that year, Guus Hiddink replaced Kraay and Ronald Koeman joined PSV. That temper, the squad suffered early eliminations from the dutch cup and european Cup, but secured the championship in the penultimate catch. [ 25 ] [ 26 ]
Hans van Breukelen celebrating with the european Cup after the match in Stuttgart The 1987–88 season turned out to be PSV ‘s best year in history. The Eredivisie was won four matches before the end after many high scoring matches, leading up to 117 goals. The cup was besides won after beating Roda JC 3–2 after supernumerary time. [ 27 ] The european Cup crusade started with wins against Galatasaray and Rapid Wien. Subsequently, PSV managed to reach the final with only draw. The one-fourth finals against Bordeaux were decided by Wim Kieft ’ s away finish. A barbarous foul by Hans Gillhaus on Jean Tigana was praised by Koeman, which prompted UEFA to suspend him for the semi-final return peg against Real Madrid. Again, an away goal in the beginning leg ( a notoriously lethargic blast by Edward Linskens at the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium ) meant that the second leg ‘s 0–0 was adequate to proceed. The final against Benfica, held in Stuttgart, remained scoreless. In the penalty shoot-out, Van Breukelen saved Benfica ‘s sixth penalty by António Veloso, which meant that PSV had won the european Cup and completed the treble. [ 28 ]

[ 29 ] The 1988–89 season again resulted in the double over : Hiddink ‘s squad won the title ( albeit with less dominance than the year before ) and PSV beat Groningen in the cup final examination. In comparison, the international competitions were disappointing. The intercontinental Cup against Nacional ended in a 2–2 draw, but PSV lost the penalty shoot-out with 7–6. The team was besides beaten in the UEFA Super Cup by KV Mechelen ( 3–1 on aggregate ). In the european Cup, Real Madrid got its retaliation by eliminating PSV in the quarter-finals. [ 30 ]

Developing endowment ( 1989–1999 ) [edit ]

Romário during a PSV train seance in 1989 After the european Cup win, PSV outsmarted many clubs by signing Romário. After a first season with 19 league goals, his hat-trick in the November 1989 match against Steaua București ( 5–1 ) – including a memorable solo campaign – was his big breakthrough. [ 31 ] In 1989, after Koeman left, PSV ended second in the league, but won the KNVB Cup after defeating Vitesse ( 1–0 ). [ 32 ] [ 33 ] Hiddink left the team in 1990, to be replaced by Bobby Robson. In his two seasons at the cabaret, PSV won two league titles ; the foremost one on finish dispute ( with Ajax ) and the second one in the penult match against Groningen. [ 34 ] meanwhile, Romário – league top scorekeeper in 1989, 1990 and 1991 – was admired by fans, but sometimes besides renounced by the squad for being unprofessional and selfish. Robson had frequent clashes with Romário, but the striker never changed his ways. These events, in addition to the lack of european success, meant that Robson was let go in 1992. [ 35 ] While Gerets retired, Hans Westerhof took over as passenger car, but alone won the Super Cup in his single season at the helm. [ 15 ] [ 36 ] In 1993, Romário was transferred to Barcelona. [ 31 ] Westerhof was replaced by Aad de Mos, who led the team to the third base place. [ 15 ] early in the 1994–95 season, De Mos was fired and replaced by Dick Advocaat ( after Kees Rijvers temporarily took over ). [ 15 ] PSV saw Van Breukelen put out and signed Luc Nilis in 1994, who formed a herculean duet with another bless, the 17-year-old Ronaldo. The brazilian striker scored 30 goals in his debut season, while Nilis was named Dutch Footballer of the class in an otherwise trophy-less year. After an injury-filled 1995–96 season where he still managed 12 goals, Ronaldo left for Barcelona. [ 37 ] [ 38 ] That season, PSV won the cup after a 5–2 win against Sparta Rotterdam. [ 39 ] In the 1996–97 temper, when Harry van Raaij became chair, Advocaat had created a team with players like Phillip Cocu, Jaap Stam, Boudewijn Zenden and Wim Jonk. It led to the Eredivisie style, with Nilis becoming league top goalscorer ( 21 goals ). In the 1997–98 season, the team came in second behind Ajax in both league and cup. It resulted in Cocu, Stam, Zenden, Jonk and Advocaat leaving PSV, forcing the golf club to build a new police squad. [ 38 ] [ 40 ] Robson temporarily returned in 1998 for one class so that craved coach Eric Gerets could get his coach badges. Again, Nilis showed to be highly compatible with a poacher-type striker ; raw signing Ruud van Nistelrooy scored 31 times in his first gear season. In the season ‘s last round, PSV beat Utrecht 3–2 with a last-minute finish by Arnold Bruggink – just adequate for Champions League qualification. [ 41 ] [ 42 ]

dutch hegemony ( 2000–2008 ) [edit ]

In the 1999–2000 season, Van Nistelrooy had scored 29 goals after barely 23 matches, but after two unplayful injuries, an at hand transplant to Manchester United was forced to be postponed for a year. [ 42 ] PSV were well crowned league champions in Gerets ‘ introduction year, creating a 16-point break with runner-up Heerenveen. [ 43 ] The 2000–01 Eredivisie was besides won with new striker Mateja Kežman, who replaced Van Nistelrooy and the asleep Nilis. The cup final was lost to Twente after penalties. [ 44 ] In the UEFA Cup, PSV faced 1. FC Kaiserslautern at home ; fans threatening to storm the field during the match prompted Gerets and some players to personally intervene. PSV was fined by UEFA and forced to play a european equal on neutral earth. [ 36 ] After Van Nistelrooy left, PSV ended second in the 2001–02 temper and were eliminated in the UEFA Cup quarter-finals by Feyenoord. [ 45 ] Gerets was released and Guus Hiddink returned to the club as coach and conductor of football, with Arjen Robben, Park Ji-sung, Lee Young-pyo joining PSV. [ 41 ] [ 46 ] Their first season immediately brought a league title, secured in the last equal against Groningen. [ 47 ] But in the 2003–04 season, PSV failed to reclaim the backing. [ 48 ] In 2004, the PSV board clashed with Hiddink and Van Raaij concerning the expenditures. Van Raaij left in September and Hiddink never got along with his successor Rob Westerhof, who sided with the dining table. [ 49 ] even though Kežman and Robben left in 2004, Hiddink had gradually built a powerful team, with Heurelho Gomes, Alex, Park, Lee, Mark van Bommel and the returning Phillip Cocu. The Eredivisie was won five matches before the end, and Willem II was beaten in the cup final examination. After eight consecutive Champions League group stage eliminations, PSV reached the knockout stage. There, they beat monaco 3–0 on sum and Lyon after penalties. The first semi-final against Milan was lost 2–0. In the come back, PSV took a 2–0 lead but a recently goal by Massimo Ambrosini ended the hope to reach the final examination, despite an injury-time one-third goal by Cocu. [ 39 ] [ 50 ] After the 2004–05 season, Van Bommel, Vogel, Park and Lee left. With modern signing Timmy Simons and youth prospect Ibrahim Afellay, PSV reached the Champions League hard degree again. In that round, Lyon revenged PSV by winning 5–0 on aggregate. The team did win the league, but lost the cup final to Ajax. [ 51 ] Afterwards, Hiddink left and Ronald Koeman replaced him. Westerhof, who lost back from the board, resigned soon after Hiddink ‘s passing. Jan Reker became general coach. [ 49 ] During the 2006–07 temper, league leaders PSV squandered a 12-point lead, enabling AZ and Ajax to equal their 72 points before the last round. A surprise AZ get the better of in the final fixture meant that PSV ‘s 5–1 victory against Vitesse was enough to edge the championship acquire ; PSV had a single finish dispute with Ajax. [ 52 ] [ 53 ] Koeman was criticised by the dining table after losing a big lead, but was finally allowed to remain as coach. In the 2007–08 season, after Cocu and Alex left, the team was disqualified from the KNVB Cup after fielding a suspend Manuel district attorney Costa. In October, Koeman took up the coach job at Valencia, prompting PSV to first appoint Jan Wouters and then Sef Vergoossen as caretakers. The fourth title in a row was won in the end match, again against Vitesse. [ 54 ] After the title, Heurelho Gomes and director of football Stan Valckx voiced criticism towards Reker, forcing the club to choose between Reker and Gomes. Subsequently, Reker sacked Valckx and sold Gomes to Tottenham Hotspur. [ 55 ]

late years ( 2008–present ) [edit ]

Huub Stevens returned as coach in 2008, but disappoint performances and clashes between Stevens and the police squad resulted in his resignation six months late. [ 56 ] Caretaker Dwight Lodeweges wrapped up the season with a fourthly target. [ 57 ] The following year, Fred Rutten was appointed as coach. In his first two seasons, PSV reached the third place twice. With Rutten as coach, PSV beat Feyenoord 10–0 in a dwelling game on 24 October 2010, a diachronic win and Feyenoord ‘s heaviest frustration in their club history. meanwhile, the clubhouse experienced fluidity problems, but secured its future through loans and property sales. [ 58 ] Key players Ibrahim Afellay and Balázs Dzsudzsák were sold and as a consequence, conductor of football Marcel Brands spent €25 million to improve the police squad. [ 59 ] But in the 2011–12 temper, the team dropped out of the entitle rush early again, which led to Rutten ‘s dismissal. Phillip Cocu finished the season as caretaker, leading the team to a third gear space and a KNVB Cup after beating Heracles Almelo. [ 60 ] [ 61 ] [ 62 ] For the 2012–13 season, Dick Advocaat returned as oral sex coach, while Mark van Bommel returned from Milan. Despite 103 league goals, the team ended as runner-up in both Eredivisie and KNVB Cup. Advocaat, who struggled with the job ‘s saturation, left after one season.

This was their first league deed since 2008, and it ended a four-year domination of the league by Ajax. [ 66 ] On 8 December 2015, PSV reached the knock-out stages of the Champions League, becoming the first Dutch club to do so since the 2006–07 Champions League season.

Crest and colors [edit ]

PSV ‘s first crest consisted of a light bulb and the words “ Philips Sport ” in a circular shape.

For the centennial celebrations in 2013, a laurel wreath and the number “ 100 ” in gold were temporarily added to the crest. [ 69 ] The colors red and white were chosen at the founding meet in 1913 by Jan Willem Hofkes, the first president of the club. He apparently appreciated the line between his bolshevik raspberry swallow and his white notepad. [ 4 ] Inspired by the clubhouse colors, the first kit consisted of a red-and-white vertically strip shirt, black shorts and red-and-white horizontally stripe socks. This combination was worn until the 1970s, when the club switched to a completely loss shirt, which was worn with either white or black shorts. The red kit was changed back to a strip translation in 1989. The red-and-white stripes have remained ever since, albeit in identical varied adaptations. The shorts would besides frequently change between black and egg white. During Ruud Gullit ‘s tenure at PSV, he personally changed the shorts from black to white, in an attempt to improve the stature of the kit. [ 70 ] For the centennial celebrations in 2013, PSV have temporarily switched to an all-red new jersey with white shorts and socks.
