Well this is an interesting opportunity. I might be tempted to jump ship for this offer should it come to fruition.
Time flies when you are having fun. It is pleasing to reach this milestone, although it may be looking likely that I may not reach 200.

Second placed Genk are not to be trifled with. We have a number of slightly tired players however we need to filed a good side today.

Relegation threatened Sporting Lokeren are the next stop on our journey. Injury has hampered my team selection in midfield.
With the second leg against Wolfsburg up midweek, I chose to select a slightly weaker side for this match. “Jarhead” makes his first team debut.
We put in a bad first half and had to bring on the big guns in the second half. In the end two goals from “Benny Jets” did the damage and we escaped with a draw.

We played well and though we struggled to put away the chances at times we still came out 3-1 winners.
An undefeated monthe but maybe by the skin of our teeth. We won the game that mattered.
We are nowhere near as comfortably placed as we were last season at this time.
