  • Botaka started and was subbed off. Tex yellow carded.
  • Sounds like STTV need the network far more than us.
  • 3-2 up now, Ceballos scores again
  • 3-2 up now, Ceballos scores again

    Seems as though he had a good Pre-Season...

  • Of STVV's starting XI only three were Belgian, and only three of the subs. Gent had only one Belgian starter, and four subs.

    Belgians prefer the Premier League :)

    Years ago a friend of Arsène Wenger started managing an underachieving club (SK Beveren). He had a football school in Ivory Coast and send these young players to Belgium. At a given moment all but one player were from Ivory Coast . After a while they started getting better and better ... Do names as Yaya Touré & Eboué , Gervinho (AS Roma), Romaric and Boka ring a bell ? :)

    Guess thats why Beveren created a link with Arsenal then? - i.e. the friendship between Arsene and the friend you mention

    Lost at Zulte-Waregem 0-2 on Saturday evening. Ceballos subbed off after 50 mins and Tex booked in 90th. They conceded 2 second half goals after having a man sent off.

    Igor was out with a knock he picked up in the previous win; expected back this week.

    It seems Ceballos got a groin/adductor injury. He has a scan due Monday and may miss at least the next game, which happens to be at home to Standard Liege next Sunday evening.

    So... Igor lasted one game and Ceballos one and a half games. That's the trouble with players from these EFL clubs: they can't stand the rigours of a 30-game Belgian season, not to mention possible play-offs. You can't rely on them to turn up and show character on a mild summer evening in Zulte (or is it Waregem?), blah blah blah.

  • Vetokele & Ceballos both out for 6 weeks. Jonas De Roeck has just finished his career as a player and is the newly appointed coach of STVV.

  • Currently a manager in the belgian fourth division. Fraeye must be fuming
  • Contrary to Fraye, Jonas De Roeck had a bit of a career as a player. He was a solid defender in the German 2nd Division and with Royal Antwerp until about a year and a half ago. No clue how he will turn out as a coach ...
  • Bit of a Roeck at the back was he ;)

  • Clearly, STVV were in one of those "caught between a Roeck and a Fraeye" places.

    Beat Standard Liege 1-0 this evening. Tex and Botaka played; Tex got booked again. Two Standard players sent off late on. STVV now have 6 pts from 3 games, but are only 6th on GD.

    Congo Chris overlooked again.

    He must be gutted.

    The injustice of it all.
