Disappointed? Yeah I guess so. We were better than the result suggested and missed so many chances to win the match. In the end it is only one competition, and we are still alive in two others.

The dreaded chat happened sooner than I would have liked. Based on the options in the negotiation, once you try to convince them to stay you can’t fall back to let them go at end of season. I decided to just try that tack and it worked, so “Petit” will be leaving in July. I hope that I can raise 20 million for him.

The battle now is to find his replacement. There are a couple of youth players in the club who will be given chances to impress.

Sint-Truiden are the next visitors and it up to us to make their visit unpleasant.

“Mookee” is still in transit back from international duty, “Lambi” is given his 10th start for the season. Both first choice full backs are given the day off.

S01-185

Neither “Doctor” nor “” are fit enough to start this match so sit the game out.

S01-186

“Lembi” put in a top performance, bagging himself four goals. For the first time we blanked a team from getting any shots off.

“Mookee” is still on international duty so “Lembi” retains his position up front.

S01-197

We are behind after 22 seconds!  We battered them but our defense was awful, and attack impotent. The players insisted on taking pot shots instead of passing.

I am disappointed by the performance today. We just were not on to it and missed too many chances.
