Yesterday-eve I watched the first half of the supercup
Anderlecht-Zulte Waregem (postponed after 45 minutes
due to heavy rain) and I taped Club Brugge - PSG in
De Bruggse Metten
TBH I feared a bit that the games wouldn't intrest me
that much so close after the past WC. But I have to
ecmit both looked very good.
It looks like the first time in years that the belgian
topteams have finally bought perfectly-matched
reinforcements. No more (big) names or players
that suddenly came free and seemed like a good option
at the time being. (Portillo)
Salou is a typical Brugge-striker; big, strong, fast
and in contrary to a Lange or Sataerness he's not that
sluggish as he seems. Always present in the
combinations and he warmed up the Club-fans heart's a
couple of times with some great footwork. IMO Salou
could become one of the players of season. Also the left-side with
new signing Koen Daerden, left-back Klukowski and Blondel showed to perfectly fit into the picture.
Same goes up for Anderlecht.
The midfield looked very well, with especially V.D Borre (I'm expecting a lot from him and Blondel this season), Boussoufa and Hassan making some excellent actions. I heard Hassan has/had some problems integrating, hopefully he can quickly put those behind because he has everything in him to become one of the absolute stars in the belgian league. One lesser thing; the defence looked rather shabby. I wonder if Anderlecht wouldn't have been better of in buying a new defender instead of Tchité. Tioté, Deschacht and Juhasz didn't made the best impression on me. Vercauteren better find some solutions there or they'll might be facing a tougher championship afterall.
Anyway I'm expecting a good season from both teams.
The football they brought last night makes me hope for the best.
BTW: nevermind the lay-out my browser seems to be acting weird.
