  1. Vanheusden to receive a call-up? Cobbaut and Boyata got injured (were called up) and Vermaelen might not be allowed to travel home.
  2. Haven't been keeping a close eye but if SW can still be trusted Brazil should be next (like Argentina, at a snail's pace by the looks of it). Maybe Germany will be clustered with Italy, Spain and England. Possibly they're waiting for CL/EL to restart in August. We'll see.
  3. Kossounou was terrible. The game wasn't much to look at either. Gent did well, deserved to get something from that game. Haven't watched much this season. Simply didn't find the time.
  4. Every window since his move to China there has been plenty of smoke. Some of it must have been fire even though he wasn't allowed to leave until now. Things did get heated between Carrasco and his club from time to time. Plus you have the Dalian Wanda links with Atleti and agents looking to grab even more cash.
  5. Didn't sound like he was allowed to join any other club but Atleti. Lots of money was made by pushing him towards China. Now he has returned I'm hoping he can make a case for himself and earn a permanent move. Should be hungry enough. Let's see where he ends up in the summer window.
  6. Seems to happen with long posts. Mods can help you out (haven't had to ask them in quite a while so idk if that's still the case).
  7. Unlucky, as usual. Let's see which Man Utd shows up in February. And who knows maybe Roma will underestimate Gent. Rough draw for both Belgian clubs. Shouldn't lack motivation. Upsets, always lovely when they happen. Fingers crossed.
  8. Standard failed to grab the 10 points needed to advance to the KOs last matchday and also this matchday (despite having a 2 goal lead to defend). It was a hard group and yet they came close again. The draw(s) haven't been kind to Belgian clubs. In future a bit more luck, like all those soft draws that Holland has been getting, wouldn't go amiss. Antwerp losing their head in the qualis has proven to be quite damaging at the end of the group stage. AZ took 8 points home (11.5 including the games before their win over Antwerp) and has given Holland's coefficient a 1.6 lead over Belgium's this season. Had Antwerp kept their cool instead, Belgium could have very well regained the ground lost in the two previous seasons (0.3 in 2018 and 0.8 in 2019 = 1.1). Holland could overtake Belgium in the rankings sooner rather than later. Better start getting results. Let's see how Gent and Brugge fare next.
  9. I feel 5 centre backs (+ Dendoncker if needed) is plenty but Martinez could opt for 6 instead and might want to give Kompany, if fit and in form, a chance to end his career as an international on a high. Kompany wants to be there but Martinez said he'd only include him if Kompany has match rhythm. Martinez only took Lukaku and Batshuayi with him in 2018. Mertens or Hazard can also provide cover. Might again opt for two strikers this summer.
  10. I don't like making yet another long-winded post. Lengthy posts get hidden anyway and then I have to bother Kev again. Besides I don't expect a huge churn compared to Russia 2018. The team is settled. Any question marks can be resolved in March plus can't tell now who'll be fit and in form come summer.
