I've added Rik De Saedeleer because he commentate the goal of George Grün in and against Holland in 1985. I don't like De Saedeleer now though, but as a child I did.

I choosed Frank Raes. He is the best to listen to while watching the games and knows also a lot of background information. Sometimes he works on my nerves though

Jan Rummens is the guy from VT 4, right ? He did a funny job on Porto-Anderlecht this year He was just great from times to times in his way .. But not to hear every game

Although Rummers was brilliant that night.

" 7 minutes extatime !!" while it was Bassegio being substituted


"OOOOOOOOOOhhhhhh that was close" ( while the ball went 15 meters from the goal)

Raes is indeed the best I know, passionate, but still objective and calm.

I choose Frank Raes he is the most interesting commentator to listen to, even when it's a boring match.
For matches of Belgium NT I like De Saedeleer

"Dat is hem, dat is hem ,..JAAAAAAAAA Ik wist het ,ik wist het"

I to chose Frank Raes, but it's quite remarcable how a commentator can turn himself into a little legend just by commentating 1 game. That Jan Rummens-dude was so funny, although I almost got a hearthattack when he shouted out 7 minutes of extra-time

I didn't chose anybody. As I'm living on the other side of the country, we have very very dumb comentators. They don't know anything about soccer (I'm speaking for the Champion's League games showed by Club RTL). For the Flemish comentators, I don't know them, but I can tell you it's better to watch Champion's league games on Canvas than on Club RTL.
see ya,

Viva, viva, viva Radzinski to GoD
