In the past few years there have been a number of youngsters who were predicted a great future but never really were able to take their chances. I figured if we did this together we might find out where some of these guys are playing:

Ferhat Dogruel: Wanted by all big Belgian clubs at the age of 17, but went to Schalke 04 instead. After that he went to a Turkish club and failed, so he returned to Belgian second division. I have no idea where he 's at now, but I guess it's second or third division.

Afana: came from Waregem and went to Feyenoord together with Swerts, Buffel and Snelders at the age of 15-16. I never heard about the guy anymore.

Feel free to add some more names...

Cool idea :thumbsup:

Yasin Karaca: whatever happened to this guy?? I know he played in Turkey for a while, for Sebatikspor or sth like that, but after that??? I really liked this guy :depress:

Jan Verlinden: he went to play for NAC or sth, dunno where he is now, but it could be KV Mechelen?

Djamba-Shango: where is he now?

Gert Peelman: not that he was potential Red Devil material or something, but he's not even in Tweede Klasse anymore, if I'm not mistaken

Veldman Don't remember his first name... used to be a talent in RSCA, as far as I remember

:howler:

I got into a fight with him (after he'd kicked our ball away of course :cool: ) and we never spoke again in the next 5 years :D.

I remember he used to pick on the ugliest girl in his class, saying she was dumb, fat and ugly constantly untill she started crying. He was 18 at that time :rolleyes: .

Kurt Van de Paar: Promising Anderlecht-product had an successful season at FC Twente. Got injured and afterwards he never recaptured his old form. Played for Trabzonspor, Patro Maasmechelen and is currently playing for Mol-Wezel in 4de klasse.

Chris De Witte: Also Anderlecht-product and ex-teammate from Van de Paar at FC Twente. Struggled with injuries. Had an unsuccesfull spell at FC Groningen before have trials at Antwerp. Didn't agree with the contract and signed at 1ste provinciale club KFC Schoten. Earlier this year his contract got terminated after he didn't get enough playing time.

By the way, Ezekiel, do you remember our school won the Belgian cup in 1996?

There were some promising Club youth players in that team, do you remember who? Thomas Troch was one of them if I'm right. There was also that blond guy who made his debut for Cercle when he was 17, but never broke through.. can't think of his name anymore.

No, I remember Euvrard did quite well at Cercle and should've stayed there a bit longer instead of moving to Genk.

Jan Masureel (Cercle) and Joachim Van Holm (Deinze) were in it as well.

I forgot about Stijn Willems... He was awesome :thumbsup:

No, the guy was a left winger, made his debut in a cup match for Cercle and was good friends with a guy from school who killed himself (I think he was in your year).
