16:02 While I was out I grabbed a quick bite to eat and my waiter told me he hopes United beat Ajax 5-0. He's a PSV fan, you see. I'm not sure we'll see that many goals this evening, although two or three could well be on the cards.

14:01 It may be a bit milder here today but you couldn't call it warm. Even the city's famous canals are still half-frozen, as you can see from my pic in the image gallery.

13:00 Confirmation for you that the roof on the Amsterdam ArenA will be open for tonight's match.
