  1. Yea, crazy to see Chadli was on corners while KdB kicks such good corners. But I think Martinez played on safe here, keeping KdB out of the box for the second ball recuperation.
  2. Before the WC started I voted for France and thats prolly still the safest bet. But after seeing Belgium win against Brazil I can only think of 1 thing: THE WC IS COMING TO BELGIUM!

    Quarterfinals: Brazil vs Belgium

    As said numerous times, Belgium doesn't have the defense to play with the 'big boys'. Their attacking talent can outscore any mediocre side but we will get battered by a team like Brazil I feel. But I have to feel hopefull, in football anything is possible and on a very good day we could beat anyone. Hopefully it's one of those days. About Jordan Lukaku, he wasn't fit enough to be included or he would have I think. But he isn't that much better then what we have now. Although I'm not a fan at all of Carassco, he's not good enough on all fronts.

    Round of 16: Colombia v England (19:00 BST ITV1)

    U could argue that a penalty that went in is a good penalty. But if we are talking about the art of taking a good penalty, the one Dier took was bad. The fact that the keeper still had a touch to it says enough about the penalty. A good penalty is impossible to save. Ask Alan Shearer.

    Knockout stage

    As a Belgian myself we all know our defense is our weak spot. It all depends on the fitness of vermaelen en kompany in this tournament. But those 2 haven't been fit for longer then 2 months in years (bit exaggerated but you know). And thats hoping we don't get any more injuries there or yellow/red bans. Cause we don't have replacements. Like said before, it will all have to come from our world class midfield/striker team. Just score a goal more then the opponent and that will be our tactic.

    Who do you think will win the world cup?

    I would put my money on France, got a great team there. My instinct would say Germany but they have a few people out of form and some important players aren't getting any younger. No way in hell Belgium are going to win it btw, as a belgian myself alot of local media have their hopes up high. But the team lacks experience on big tournaments and we have no width in defence.
  8. It is quite annoying that there is a 'cooldown' between team shouts. U dont see a manager irl taking a 10 min break after shouting once at his team. Especially if u want to do a few individual shouts, by the time u did them all the match is over.
  9. Wow, this is huge, very nice transfer! Indeed a legend at the club, loved very much.
  10. Going good so far btw! U should become champions again withouth any problems I think! A good way to wash away the bad cup and CL campaign. No worries though, u will only get better with this team, ur youth will develop even more and start shredding!
  11. This is not exactly a manager of the year award. It's an award specially made in honor of Raymond Goethals (a legendary belgian manager who has died in 2004). U can win this award if u play and coach in a somewhat similar style as he did when he had many succeses. U can only win this award once in ur carreer if I'm not mistaken. The award itself is quite an honor in Belgium because Raymond was loved very much in the football community (has coached Anderlecht several times also). But outside of Belgium it is not worth much.
  12. Hmm, I meant to ask. What is 'Skipena'?
  13. Wow, u really sold alot of first team players! But I very much like that u are keeping true to your vision! Oh, and great start so far! First seasons are Always the hardest.
  14. Ah the play-offs in Belgium... Where u only have to worry about making it into the top 6 and only then u have to start performing. Such a ridiculous and stupid system. Still a good comback man! Anything can happen still, fingers crossed!
  15. Great thread, great read! I have been a huge Anderlecht fan for many many years and I Always play them in every FM for (often) a long carreer. I like that u are playing the youth card, they do have an incredible youth and it will be satisfying to play them!
