  1. To be honest, we never understood why King Power didn't bring in Shakespeare as an assistent manager. It's clear that Pearson has had his greatest success when he was accompanied by Shakespeare and Steve Walsh.
  2. Really happy for Nigel that things are working out in Watford!!!
  3. They made the classic mistake most teams make when they drop down to the 2nd division: Keeping most of their squad together from the previous year and bringing in a lot of older players on long-term contracts. Teams that drop down to 1B really believe that they can win the league with their squad that just relegated. This just isn't the case. If you're not good enough for the 1st division, you won't win the 2nd division either. On top of that, they bring in older players who have a lot of experience, but really aren't good enough anymore to carry a team. These players mostly demand long-term contracts for a lot of money. We made the same mistake by signing older players like Julien Gorius and Koen Persoons believing they would guide us to a championship. Luckily we got rid of them this summer because their contracts ran out. On top of that, they're in financial turmoil. They even have a transfer ban at the moment because of this. Their previous owner, who sold the club this summer, was known for spending lots and lots of money. He managed to hire and fire 27 managers during his 25 years as president of the club and signing players for way to much money. For example, when OHL won the 2nd division in 2011 we had a great striker by the name of Hamdi Harbaoui. During the summer of 2011 there were a lot of clubs interested in signing him, including Lokeren. After meeting with Lokeren the owner asked Harbaoui to walk him to his car. When they came to his car, the owner opened the trunk and in it was a suitcase with 1 million euros in cash. This "signing bonus" convinced Harbaoui to sign with Lokeren.

  5. This was a do or die match. A loss would have been the end of any dreams to win the 2nd period. Now we're back in the mix to win it!

  8. Absolutely disgusted with our performance today! I don't mind playing a bad game or even losing a game, but today a lot of our players didn't even try to win. Some of the lads really think they're world class players who don't have to work hard after winning the 1st period. They need to take a hard look at themselves! This was our last game of 2019. Our next game is January 12th. Highlights: 6-minute version: https://www.proximus-sports.be/nl/voetbal/proximus-league/video/27284/samenvatting-oh-leuven-re-virton

  11. Spot on! Poor preformance from our lads. Even though we went up 0-1 and 1-2, we should be happy with this draw as Roeselare were the better team. That was indeed our top striker. It looked like a concussion to me.

  13. Our 1st division is also quite ridiculous to be fair . The good news is that a lot of Belgian clubs are sick and tired of these messed up systems and it looks like we might get a "normal league system" of 18 or 20 teams in the near future.
  14. To be honest, I was pissing myself laughing when I was typing the explanation . This simply is the most ridiculous system in sports history.
  15. I really hope things work out for him. Good luck, Nigel!
