Nice to see 2 more players from the Jupiler League:
Verschaeren - 90p - definitely a prospect that should be on the index based on some of the other lesser Belgian talents I see... but twice the price of Vanaken/Samatta/Bongonda?! He'll be good but lacks pace to play as an out and out wide man.
Vanheusden - 50p - this boy is good (but injury prone) should slot back in alongside Laifis (who I thought would be on the index)... a lot closer relative value to other similar quality players but I guess as we know in FI that doesn't mean anything!
Hi - anyone got an opinion on their squad. I've been tracking Tomiyasu from his time in the Jupiler League and surprised he isn't available to buy on the index. I know a bit about Denswil too who played well for Club Brugges last year.
With no European competition, they're probably not that attractive, but would welcome opinions...
Also - back to Tomiyasu - how often are new names added to the index and how are they selected?
RE: Under 60p players
Mbwana Samatta - If Bongonda can double when injured then this guy who scored 30+ goals for club and country last season will get more attention in the CL group stage.
Genk consistently sell off their top talent for big money and they kept Berge and Samatta this season - I expect both to leave next summer and Samatta is about 75% the price of Berge who is a classic Defensive Mid and not a headline grabber.
RE: Theo Bongonda
@ScoutScout - I watched Hagi's debut - scoring immediately after coming on but since then he's been used sparingly to say the least.
Berge staying for them is big and Heynen for me is the guy that makes them tick in midfield.... decent from set pieces too. I'm surprised Maehle isn't getting in the team after a decent Euro U21 showing....
One thing for sure is that the Belgian League is never dull.... I know it was in the Europa League Qualifying last night but did you see Lamkel Ze get a second yellow (after Mbokani already sent off) for celebrating a goal... what a numpty!
I'm keen to see if the Wanyama transfer goes through today - that would be a statement purchase from Brugge (who IMO have to be favourites this season) for the title.
This index needs, Tau, Diatta, Okereke, Deli, Heynen, Ito, Lucumi and a few more at least!
RE: Theo Bongonda
@ScoutScout - Sure but things are never as clear cut as people write on the boards... but hey I get that. I can't recall if Bongonda was signed before or after the new manager joined.. either way, the team has options... Bongonda being a good one!
I just wish more players from the Jupiler League were available to purchase... the current options seem very dated.
RE: Theo Bongonda
Genk are blessed with a lot of attacking options... so far this season it has mainly been Paintsil and Ito either side of Samatta... they also have Nygren, Benson (back off loan from Mouscron) and Hagi (son of legendary Gheorghe).... then Odey and recent purchase Onuachu!!
So, will be interesting to see if he can establish himself alongside Samatta (only dead cert to start) and Ito.
Interesting to see a few recent threads relating to players in or with history in the Jupiler League (Bongonda/Djenepo)
I'm going to throw Samatta into the mix now that Genk has just drawn Liverpool in the CL... I think he's got a great platform now to stand out in a reasonable group.
Vanaken is the only other proven player in the league with Club Brugge, but they got a tough draw - not sure if he'll be able to shine in that group - let's see!
