EXQI League 2009/2010

With 3 relegated teams from the Jupiler Pro League and Lierse SK & Antwerp FC still stuck in the EXQI League, the new season announces itself yet again as very tense.

With Oostende, Brussels & Beveren quite some other former D1 clubs will compete with the teams mentioned above for a spot in the Jupiler Pro League. And off course we can't forget a club like RFC Liège, which has a rich tradition. Or will OH Leuven be able to succeed in their OHL 2010 plans ?

I hate to be anal (no pun intended) but...

* AFC Tubize is a merger as well, hence the name "Association de Football ClubS"
* RFC Tournai was founded a few years back only, not in the twenties Was a merger of US Tournai and RC Tournai.
* KAS Eupen is also a merger, and was older than 1945, thing is that Eupen (and the entire Germanophone part of Belgium) was german soil until 1945. So AS Eupen was more or less moved to the Belgian leagues after Eupen became a Belgian city. The actual club is older and was also result of a merger.
* KVO's second nickname is "tricolores" and of course "kustjongens/cotiers" like you stated

And then one question: isn't Liege gonna play in Montegnee after all?



PS: I take that this is the final D2 composition? Or is this subject to change, depending on the outcome of Mouscron's license case and depending on the outcome of the Lierse-Turnhout case?
I guess if Turnhout is denied promotion, Woluwe-Zaventem (who lost the playoffs final in 3rd division) would take their place in D2?

I expect Mouscron to get their licence to be honest. Surely if Demba Ba gets his transfer to Stuttgart, as Mouscron still gets a % on that sell. Also Dufermont announced to inject some extra money.

Lierse - Turnhout is indeed the big issue. There are 3 possibilities:
  • Lierse & Turnhout become a merger club
  • Turnhout relegates back to the D3
  • Samy Maged quits sponsoring Turnhout
So in the end option 1 & especially 3 seem to be only options to consider imo.

Turnhout fans would probably not accept a merger with a local rival, and many youth players would be clubless suddenly. So guess option 3 would be more realistic.

Personally, as unpretty as option 2 seems, I would rather not promote than to merge I think. If it were KVO and we had the choice between D2 as a seperate club or D1 in a merger with Cercle or so, I would rather not promote but keep my own club alive. I can't imagine the average Turnhout fan driving to Lier and fanatically support a club which in a way killed the team he always used to support.

I guess Mahed Samy can sell Turnhout to a befriended investor and still have his saying behind the scenes, but as long as he isn't the official owner anymore the FA cannot block Turnhout from promoting. Seems most realistic outcome.

Isn't that one bigger, about 5-6000 or so?

Heard about RFC Liège as well they should play in Montegnée, but their stadium-soap seems to go on forever, hehe.

Nice preview btw!

Unfortunately yes, and for that reason I would ban them to D3. I think it's OK to groundshare and move around for a few years while your club grows, a team on the rise cannot just expand a stadium in the snap of a finger so I think it's normal that there is some flexibility. But Liege have been without a proper home ground since 1994 and have been kicked out of every ground they have been renting. The FA MUST be patient a bit, but 15 years is just a bit too much.

I like Liege, but there must be an end to this ridiculous soap. Set them back to D3 and this may force them to focus on finishing their new stadium first, or to secure a groundshare on permanent basis (= not being kicked out by the owners after one or two seasons)

Samy isn't even the official owner of Turnhout. His holding is just their main sponsor.

Are there any moves of 22 year old Admir Aganovic moving to a big side in Belgium or Netherlands? I heard talks of him moving to Anderlecht or Twente. He scored a beautiful bicycle for Dender once, and he's scored 2 goals today and added an assist. Great player compared to other Belgian league players.

EXQI League 2009/2010 Calendar

After the first transfer movements Lierse seems to be the main favourites this year. Also Beveren will do quite well I suppose.

Hopefully we get to see an more exciting battle this season

This calendar is not 100% reliable yet as it is unsure if KV Turnhout will start the season. Wadi Degla have decided to terminate their involvement in KVT to avoid being blamed for conflict of interests with Lierse, which means Turnhout is near bankruptcy again. The fans already started a huge money collection initiative "Doe mee voor KVT" but the situation looks bleak: trainings and friendlies so far all postponed because there is lack of money to let the pre-season get started, and two board members already resigned as they say it is a way too big risk to let Turnhout start the season in this situation.

Looks like we may be back to 18 clubs in D2 very very soon... KVT doesn't exactly have the number of fans like KV Mechelen to collect enough money to make a difference. If Turnhout starts, they will probably be weakened so much that the first relegating team is 90% sure already, and that is IF they start the season at all.

How is it possible they are in such a mess such a short time after their first bankruptcy? This smells like very bad management, so I find it hard to be compassionate.

Slavia Praha signed Hocine Ragued from Mons, he's Tunisian international. Did he make any sort of impression in 1st division? They're comparing him to Tavares, another unknown player who was transferred to Hamburg last season. Usually they sign players not many teams want

He was one of the only Mons players who made a decent impression last season, togheter with Collet who moved to Belgian champions Standard.

He's not afraid to tackle though. I think he gathered something like 9-10 yellow cards last season.

Decent midfielder though. I wonder why no Belgian D1 club went for him.

Pretty hard midfielder, but he's actually able to pass the ball on a decent way.

Should be a decent player for Slavia

Apparently Eupen is seriously investing in its squad with the help of a financial injection from Italy. They even secured Radek Petr in goal, who during the latest European Championship for U20 (or was it U19?) got elected as best goalie overall and was also wanted by Anderlecht.


I said it before and I will say it again, but Eupen is one of those D2 teams that, if they take things step by step and build with a vision, may very well have a future in the highest division. KAS Eupen is the only Germanophone team in the Belgian professional football. That may sound like a void argument but lets not forget this is a relatively big catchment area. We talk about an area of well over 80000 people and a sports-crazy area. The Germanophone Belgians love sports, look in handball and volleyball where the local teams attract very decent crowds compared to other Belgian teams. Many of the people in the German-speaking minority love football but now go across the border every week to watch the likes of FC Koln, Monchengladbach or Schalke. If KAS Eupen manages to further develop and market itself as the big sports representative of the Germanophone Belgians, it could very well work and the locals may no longer need to support German teams. By changing the name from Association Sportive Eupen to Allgemeine Sportvereinigung Eupen and by branding itself more and more in German, the club is following a good route. The German speaking community could massively get attracted to the club if it brands itself as the representing club of all German speaking Belgians.

I am not saying Eupen may become something big, but they got more chance to be a stable D1 club than most other D2 clubs simply because they can reach out to a target audience that so far is without a club that feels like their own. The high number of Germanophone Belgians crossing the border weekly to watch Bundesliga football prove that there is a decent catchment area in the Oostkantons as long as AS Eupen offers them some quality football and really markets itself as Belgiums one and only Germanophone club.
