I was told by a Dutch bloke years ago that football matches between NL and Germany are mostly amiable apart from some piss-taking. I think there might have been a song about the Dutch asking the Germans about getting their bicycles back? Something to do with the retreating Germans taking the bikes and other easily portable metal objects with them for scrap.
I may be mis-remembering this as I had drunk some beers.

Hardly surprising given the number of cloggies that joined the SS.

You have remembered correctly. There are always comments about getting granddads bike back.

Yes that’s right, they stole all the bikes in order to stop them being used by the Dutch resistance. It was around about the same time that the Nazi cents forced the Netherlands in to near starvation in retaliation to their support to the allies. If you look in their cemeteries, you’ll see a shyt load of children’s graves, because they were starved to death

More a case of them stealing the bikes as they retreated out of NK.
 
Fact about stealing bikes versus the starvation of a nation and deaths of children? You win ( I do stand corrected though)
