He was rewarded as best player on the Belgian fields past year and it was really deserved i think !

The top 5 had 4 players of Anderlecht in it :
1.J.Koller (Anderlecht) : 315 ptn (102+213)
2.Y.Vanderhaeghe(Anderlecht) : 177 (82+95)
3.W.Baseggio(Anderlecht) : 161(6+155)
4.B.Goor(Anderlecht) : 124(100+24)
5.G.Verheyen (CLub BRugge) : 97 (19+78)

BTW: Nilis was given a trophee for his life time achievement. It was really touching and sad to see he had to end his career already and like this

Congrats to Jantje Koller . He really deserves it.

I thought then Nilis-act was a shame. Not only did they copied it from Holland, VTM was just looking for cheep emotions. They made every effort to make him cry and did you see how they followed his wife? Only because in Holland she was very emotional in the Dutch version.

And that on a podium which has always disrespected Nilis. The voters for The Golden Boot never acknoledged his exeptional talents. Only when he had to stop (and they saw the honors he got in he Netherlands) they gave hims some non-existing trophee. This was nothing but 'lijkenpikkerij' :fero: :fero: :fero: :fero: :fero:

Yes I was quite please with Vanderhaeghen's second place. I was afraid he might win. With those ignorant Belgian reporters you never know.

I also wonder why they have to add other votings like the golden stud, ... Please, VTM stop messing with our football!
I'm glad Luc Nilis was honoured for his carreer, but it seems like they just did it to get the tears (emo-TV)...

I must admit that i'm still a bit pissed off about the award Staelens got last year.

He played better at Brugge, but when he joined Anderlecht, only then did he get the award.

I think the Walloon reporters will only support players who play in Walloon teams , like Anderlecht (partially) is.
