    Forfeits, Fog and F*** Ups!

    2022 is here and the Pro League made its return this past weekend. We discuss all the games that took place, those that didn't and those that started but never finished. Scott does a deep dive into three new managers across 1A and 1B, while we also have an AFCON round up from all the Pro League players in action!

    The Dury's Out

    Goals galore once again in the Pro League, with plenty of action to get stuck into. We talk the big game between Club Brugge and Anderlecht, the situation at Kortrijk and AFCON impact, as well as dramatic wins at both ends of the table for USG and Zulte Waragem. After decades of involvement in Zulte Waragem, Francky Dury finally left the side this week, so our Scott has done a deep dive on all he achieved in his time at the club.

    Shameful!

    Shameful!

    Another week with no 0-0 draws in the Belgian Pro League! Ben, Scott and Joris go through each game, including OHL's surprising win away to the league leaders, a big win for Anderlecht, a crazy game in Genk, as well as a first win in a while for Cercle. Despite the win, Cercle parted ways with Yves Vanderhaeghe. We have all the reaction, including a detailed response from Cercle football director Carlos Avina on why the change was made, as well as who the new man is. We also go around 1B, where a controversial Westerlo goal saw them beat Lommel, as well as a crazy game between RWDM and Deinze!

    Lommel SK Special

    Lommel SK Special

    We were absolutely delighted to be joined by Mike Green (Lommel SK CEO) and Peter van der Veen (Lommel SK Head Coach) for a chat about the Limburg club. We talked the City Groups vision for the club, balancing that with the local nature of the club, playing style and approach, as well as how both Mike and Peter got into football. Peter also gives a great story about meeting one of the greatest football minds, Johan Cruyff. We are sure you are all going to enjoy this one!
