Granted RB Salzburg didn't play a competitive tie since December but they did have those friendlies and the Atlantic Cup. Never paid attention to that (training camp) cup but seeing the Atlantic League idea has been bandied around a few times Belgian, Dutch, Portuguese, Scandi, ... teams could compete in such a cup competition first.

Luckily RB Salzburg have just one week to get up to speed. They do have the away goal but I wouldn't put it past Brugge to keep a clean sheet in the return. After all Brugge did perform admirably in the CL with clean sheets against Monaco (were a mess though), Dortmund and Atleti.

 

PS I guess Pozuelo can't get more than 87 at Genk but do you feel he merits a +1?

Pozuelo deserves that + 1 definitely, but it will depend on if he stays or not and of course SM :)

Thanks for the hospitality.

I think Castagne will play on the left until the end of the season, Hateboer is playing better than him (in terms of goals), he found a great coach for improve, because Gasperini uses always a lot lateral sections of the field. In Italy is written several club are interested in him

P.s. funny surname, from french it should means "punch up" (tell me if I'm wrong) and from italian  is "chesnuts" LOL

Yep, punch-up/fight/brawl in French, but I'd go with "bagarre" instead, and in Dutch it also means chestnut.

There were more giggles back when Foket and Kums played together for Ghent (have to pronounce it in English to get the effect).

They can't all have a rockstar name like Axel Witsel or better yet Eden Hazard :cool:

Big Five Belgians - Ligue 1

 

Player (club) - position - age - rating - minutes - WS score

 

  • Jason Denayer (Lyon) ... CB - 23 - 86 - 1856' - 6.89 ... Had my fingers crossed when he joined Lyon, hoping it would turn out to be a smart choice and it did. Well overdue a rating hike. In great form and if he keeps this up should get +2 in the next review.
  • Matz Sels (Strasbourg) ... GK - 26 - 87 - 2250' - 6.73 ... Deserves a +1 but capped.
  • Björn Engels (Reims) ... CB - 24 - 86 - 1890' - 6.93 ... Should get 87.
  • Thomas Foket (Reims) ... RB - 24 - 87 - 1800' - 6.82
  • Thomas Meunier (PSG) ... RB/RWB - 27 - 91 - 1208' - 7.15
  • Baptiste Guillaume (Nimes) ... CF - 23 - 84 - 957' - 6.80
  • Aaron Leya Iseka (Toulouse) ... CF - 21 - 83 - 1138' - 6.23
  • Anthony Limbombe (Nantes) ... LW - 24 - 86 - 786' - 6.50 ... Hasn't exactly gone swimmingly so far. Should stay on 86 and wait for improvement.
  • Nacer Chadli (Monaco) ... LW - 29 - 88 - 662' - 6.37 ... Crocked. Could end up in a downward spiral, ratingwise.
  • Joris Kayembe (Nantes) ... LM - 24 - 82 - perma-injured

Player (club) - position - age - rating - minutes - WS score

 

  • Axel Witsel (Dortmund) ... DM - 30 - 91 - 1883' - 7.18 ... Should get a rise, already had a strong case in winter.
  • Thorgan Hazard (BMG) ... LW - 25 - 90 - 1883' - 7.66 ... Top season but 91 doesn't seem to be on the cards, too soon.
  • Dodi Lukebakio (Duesseldorf) ... RW - 21 - 83 - 1216' - 6.83 ... Having a great season, another rise is a distinct possibility.
  • Koen Casteels (Wolfsburg) ... GK - 26 - 88 - 1890' - 6.88 ... Edging towards 89? Probably stays.
  • Benito Raman (Duesseldorf) ... LW - 24 - 84 - 754' - 6.51

Player (club) - position - age - rating - minutes - WS score

 

  • Timothy Castagne (Atalanta) ... RB - 23 - 86 - 1109' - 6.89 ... He's the best shot for a Belgian to rise in Serie A.
  • Dennis Praet (Sampdoria) ... CM - 24 - 89 - 1637' - 6.93 ... Reached Sampdoria's cap.
  • Dries Mertens (Napoli) ... CF - 31 - 92 - 1303' - 7.01
  • Radja Nainggolan (Inter) ... CM/AM - 30 - 93 - 1042' - 6.77 ... Never wanted to leave Roma, didn't exactly hit the ground running at Inter but finally seems to have turned the page.
  • Kevin Mirallas (Fiorentina) ... RW - 31 - 87 - 662' - 6.46 ... Will keep going downhill.
  • Silvio Proto (Lazio) - perma-benched
  • Jordan Lukaku (Lazio) ... LB - 24 - 86 - 170' - 6.22 ... Often injured, Lazio looking to get rid of him.

Big Five Belgians - Premier League

 

Player (club) - position - age - rating - minutes - WS score

 

  • Eden Hazard (Chelsea) ... LW - 28 - 95 - 2020' - 7.76 ... Would have to move to Real because he won't get 96 at Chelsea. I like him to stay though (+ Chelsea to strengthen this summer). Still the best Belgian around.
  • Kevin De Bruyne (Manchester City) ... CM/AM - 27 - 95 - 536' - 6.82 ... 96 hinges on the title defence plus KDB being decisive in their CL run.
  • Jan Vertonghen (Spurs) ... CB - 31 - 92 - 1200' - 6.86 ... It's Spurs.
  • Toby Alderweireld (Spurs) ... CB - 29 - 92 - 2080' - 6.90 ... It's Spurs.
  • Leander Dendoncker (Wolves) ... DM - 23 - 89 - 506' - 6.86 ... looking like he'll have a solid second half of the season but will probably stay at 89.
  • Youri Tielemans (Leicester) ... CM - 21 - 89 - decent debut
  • Romelu Lukaku (Manchester United) ... CF - 25 - 92 - 1424' - 6.81
  • Vincent Kompany (Manchester City) ... CB - 32 - 90 - 555' - 6.81
  • Christian Kabasele (Watford) ... CB - 27 - 87 - 1133' - 6.77
  • Divock Origi (Liverpool) - CF - 23 - 88 - 92' - 6.41
  • Simon Mignolet (Liverpool) - GK - 30 - 88 - perma-benched
  • Michy Batshuayi (Crystal Palace) ... CF - 25 - 89 - too early to tell
  • Christian Benteke (Crystal Palace) ... CF - 28 - 88 - 472' - 6.66
  • Isaac Mbenza (Huddersfield) ... RW - 22 - 85 - 591' - 6.11 ... Expected this to be a poor choice, shame. Most likely stays on 85.
  • Laurent Depoitre (Huddersfield) ... CF - 30 - 86 - 986' - 6.20 ... Enjoy Brentford away next season.
  • Denis Odoi (Fulham) ... CB - 30 - 84 - 2115' - 6.59 ... Worst defensive record in the league but can't exactly blame him for it. Should stay but -1 wouldn't be a surprise.
  • Steven Defour (Burnley) ... CM - 30 - 87 - 452' - 6.19 ... Another drop is only a matter of time.

1000db started his new idea already :). I'm going to make some individual rapports about the youngsters in Belgium. It will take his time, because I don't have much time this period of this year. I'm trying my best to give you all the information.

Individual rapport Silas Gnaka

B9714874471Z.1_20180225173145_000+G8QAPE

Age: 20

Position: D(L)

Nationality: Côte D’Ivoire

Team: KAS Eupen

SM Value: 340K

SM Rate: 76

Minutes: 2123 minutes (88 % in total till now)

 

This 20-year-old from Ivory Coast is a modern left back that, in my eyes, can take a step forward.

 

 

I personally feel that he is still missing a lot of duel power and sometimes too nonchalant. Gnaka is the only player from the Aspire Academy that breaks through this season in Belgium at KAS Eupen. He still has a contract until 2022.

 

 

KAS Eupen plays his best season this year in the first class of Belgium. Gnaka is a regular basic player and he has his value in the team.

 

 

He is quite unknown in Belgium for the Belgian football fan, but I suspect that this will change in short term. I don’t expect Gnaka to really kick it, but he has potential to succeed in the football world. It will depend on his next club choice, but I see that Gnaka has the potential to reach teams like SS Lazio or FC Sevilla.

How big do you think Verschaeren will be?

I will make an individual rapport about him this week, but these days Verschaeren is one of the best or even the best player of the last weeks for RSC Anderlecht. If he developp further like this (!) , he will go far.

Good player

Individual rapport Yari Verschaeren

 

763?appId=2dc96dd3f167e919913d808324cbfe

Age: 17

Position: AM(RLC)

Nationality: Belgium

Team: RSC Anderlecht

SM Value: 280K

SM Rates: 70

Minutes: 526 minutes (22 % in total till now)

 

This 17-year-old Belgian is making name at RSC Anderlecht as an attacking midfielder. It is still early to say that he can already take a step forward, but recently Verschaeren got his first place at RSC Anderlecht.

 

 

Verschaeren has a solid basic technique. He has already duel power, avoids tackles cleverly, always plays in a not complicated way. He is already mature at this young age. He will have to win some more duel power, but the beginning of his career is very promising. The question is now how he will react when he performs less.  

 

 

RSC Anderlecht have a lot of problems this season, but if I have to mention a few light points, Yari Verschaeren is certainly one of them.

 

 

He is starting to become a bit known in Belgium (partly because RSC Anderlecht is the most following team in Belgium) and that will only be better with the following weeks and months. He has the potential to have a successful career.

On saturday Castagne played 20 minutes as a wing 😂😂😂 for Atalanta's emergency, (maybe for the first time in his career?)  then he has been arretrated in his natural position, not a good performance, but is interesting that Gasperini see him a lot

Individual rapport Zinho Vanheusden

 

a8737f16-eade-11e7-b63a-cca4541fb77a_web

Age: 19

Position: D(C)

Nationality: Belgium

Team: Internazionale on loan to Standard De Liège

SM Value: 2M

SM Rate: 78

Minutes: 1261 minutes (52 % in total till now)

 

Zinho Vanheusden proves himself at one of the top teams in Belgium. He is known as a great talent and now he proves this in Belgium. I recommend him to stay for at least 1 season after this season, but if he continues like that, then he is the future of our Belgian national team.

Vanheusden has great feet and is positionally very good. He is still young, but he has already maturity like Verschaeren. He had a long injury when playing with Internazionale's youth, but he recoverd very well. He really has pure talent.

Standard De Liège has a reasonable season so far after a difficult start. He did not play in the beginning of the season, as Standard De Liège took a new trainer. He had to adapt a bit and improve Preud'Homme to play.

He has been known in Belgium - since he was 17 years old - but he finally breaks through at the age of 19 (his long injury is one of the reasons), but now he proves why he was known as a great talent. If he develops further, he can really go far.

Individual rapport Takehiro Tomiyasu

 

5,w=1280.bild.jpg

Age: 20

Position: D(C)

Nationality: Japan

Team: Sint-Truidense VV (STVV)

SM Value: 360K

SM Rate: 76

Minutes: 2160 minutes (89 % in total till now)

 

Takehiro Tomiyasu is one of the greatest talents at this moment in Belgium with foreign origin. He arrived in Belgium as a young talent. There are already quite a few teams interested in him. Eintracht Frankfurt, Borussia Dortmund and SS Lazio are already mentioned. We are already talking about amounts between 8 and 12 million euros. He also made it in the Japanese national team and also showed his qualities in the Asian Cup for Japan.

This is currently his 2nd season in Belgium. Because of injuries in his first season, he broke through in his 2nd season in Belgium. He is one of the best Japanese young talents at the moment. He is positionally very good, has a good pass and can lead the defense. He is not always faultless, but it can be perfectly worked on.

Sint-Truidense VV has a very good season this year. They are currently 5th and are fighting together with KAA Gent, RSC Anderlecht and Charleroi for Play-Off 1 and a lot has to be done for Sint-Truidense VV not to end up in Play-Off 1. By the way Marc Brys is the architect behind this STVV with lots of footballing qualities (according to Belgian standards of course!). It’s not easy to dominate STVV for the top teams.

As you see at the beginning of this report, you notice that Tomiyasu has made name in Belgium and abroad. He will no longer play at STVV next season, that seems clear to me. I hope he takes a smart step to make it in the football world. I secretly hope that Club Brugge or RSC Anderlecht will bring him in their selection next season. It would be a smart step for the 3 parties, but he will be expensive. Probably too expensive for Club Brugge. RSC Anderlecht has maybe a chance (according to their transfers last seasons like Bubacarr Sanneh for 8 million and Nicolae Stanciu for 9.5 million) to get him…

Individual rapport Joakim Maehle

Joakim-Maehle-1.jpg

Age: 21

Position: D(R), M(R)

Nationality: Denmark

Team: KRC Genk

SM Value: 1.8M

SM Rates: 82

Minutes: 2285 minutes (94 % in total till now)

 

The 21-year-old Danish is one of the better revelations in the Belgian league this season. Southampton already tried to get him this winter. Fortunately, this transfer did not go through, because he can do better than Southampton. If Maehle will stay next season or not, there is still a doubt at the moment, but he may leave. If I were KRC Genk, I would ask a minimum. You should certainly catch 15 million euros.

Maehle is a player with a huge engine. He never seems tired and goes full speed for 90 minutes. He has a great technique and is positionally defensively improved this season. He has become complete under the coach Philipp Clement. He is already compared here and there with Thomas Meunier. Not entirely unjustified.

KRC Genk has a top season and has been on the number 1 in the Belgian competition for a while now. KRC Genk is mainly known this year around a few players. It has good players with Sander Berge, Ruslan Malinovskiy, Alex Pozuelo, Léandro Trossard and Mbwana Samatta.

Maehle had already started this season on a good level, but then he was not in the picture yet. Especially the 5 mentioned players were the beating heart of KRC Genk.

The Dane still has a lot of potential to get it really far. After all this time, it is clear that the Dane is the most constant player of KRC Genk and gets the deserved attention. Quite unbelievable that Denmark still has not called Maehle for the national team of Denmark.

I brainstorm loudly, but if Roberto Martinez has already asked to Moraes Wesley to look at the possibilities to play for the Red Devils, then he should also try Maehle. Would solve a lot on our wingback-position in the future.

Great reports, helps to have a better idea about the players.

I red great stuff aswell about Zinho Vanheusden, II think he will stay in Standard Liege.

Inter will take Godin for replace Miranda as 3rd DC, they have also Bastoni that has already experience in Serie A and is really good.

With these two Inter can have the DC for several years.

3rd? Godin? Really? Do u think so?

Marotta (CEO of Inter) told that Godin soon will be official at Inter as free agent:

https://www.transfermarkt.co.uk/inter-rsquo-s-marotta-on-transfer-of-atleticos-godin-quot-official-announcement-soon-rdquo-/view/news/330427

He is an expert about free agents, he took Pirlo, Pogba, Coman, Khedira, etc at Juventus

Next year Inter will have Skriniar, De Vrij and Godin but with 3 competitions all will have space, Godin's experience in CL will be really important. I can't see none of them relegated as reserve, all will have space, I wasn't clear enough before..

Spalletti has to find the best solution, but I think won't be a problem, but an important resource, he has already used 3-5-2 but also Skriniar as DR where has to defend a lot, like Ancelotti did in CL with Maksimovic or Milenkovic in Fiorentina.

I know its pratically a done deal but i was expecting Godin to be number 1. Huge upgrade to Inter defense but not needed for me...Skriniar and De Vrij are good enough.
