Are we supposed to be voting on who we think will win, or who we'd like to win?

I've used Bijlmer station and it didn't strike me as anything especially impressive at the time. It comes across as curiously empty, although I guess it has to be built to handle the match crowds and if there's no match on, the station is going to be operating at 3% of capacity. And whatever of the photographed looks, it has that concrete wind-tunnel feel of a lot of Dutch architecture when you're actually in it.
