Belgian Golden Shoe 2013

Each year in january, we choose a new golden shoe: the best player on the Belgian fields during the previous year

Who will win?

I think we have 4 main candidates:

Maxime Lestienne
Jelle Vossen
Thorgan Hazard
Michy Batshuayi

Players who left during the summer break or who came during the summer break have of course fewer chance to win the golden shoe, because they didn't play a whole year in Belgium.

This is the list of the last 10 years:

2003 Aruna Dindane RSC Anderlecht
2004 Vincent Kompany - RSC Anderlecht
2005 Sergio Conceição - Standard
2006 Mbark Boussoufa - RSC Anderlecht
2007 Steven Defour - Standard
2008 Axel Witsel - Standard
2009 Milan Jovanović - Standard
2010 Mbark Boussoufa - RSC Anderlecht
2011 Matías Suárez - RSC Anderlecht
2012 Dieumerci Mbokani - RSC Anderlecht

In my opinion, Thorgan Hazard will win the golden shoe. He played a leading role in the 2nd place of Zulte Waregem previous season and now he confirms it was not luck.

He was the best player that Zulte had by far when they played PSV.

I wonder where he will end up though. Surely not at Chelsea where they have already too many players in his position.

I remember there was a huge difference between Zulte Waregem and PSV. I think the players of Zulte Waregem were very nervous because for most of them it was their first european match ever. There were also a lot of troubles with the chairman who moved on during that period and also troubles about the captain (long story). While PSV had an incredible form that period. And of course a big difference in budget (Zulte Waregem only 9 vs PSV more than 60 million euros). That's why Zulte Waregem looked like a team of children against PSV

Too bad you didn't see the 'real' Thorgan Hazard during that game.

I don't think he will ever reach the level of chelsea (less than 5%) but he's without doubt one of the greatest talents of our league now.

Before he makes the step to a big competition like England, Germany, France or something else, first he has to go to a bigger club in Belgium or Holland.

Personally, I think he will go to Vitesse after this season because Belgian clubs doesn't want to hire him, only buy him. While Vitesse doesn't care about hiring players from Chelsea. So I think Vitesse is a logical next step in his career for the next 2 or maybe 3 years.

Hazard jr looks good.

Do you think that Lestienne is NT material?
He looks better than any of the Feyenoord winger material (Boetius or Schaken) I watch in week in week out and they're getting looked at for Oranje.

Lex Immers - Pace & power. Holland's #1 box to box player

Feyenoord forum - the place to talk about this phenomenon

Ronald Koeman "Oranje kan Immers goed gebruiken"

Fred Rutten "Feyenoord heeft Immers nodig"

Van Marwijk over Lex Immers: 'Stille kracht van Feyenoord'

John de Wolf “Dat is nou precies de aanjager, het ’etterbakkie’ in het veld dat Feyenoord in dit soort wedstrijden nodig heeft"

Will be difficult for Lestienne

Concurrention is very hard with Eden Hazard, De Bruyne, Chadli and Mertens on the winger positions for the national team.

Ferreira Carrasco and Bakkali are also considered as big talents, so the chance he goes to Brasil is tiny.
