Davy Van der Sar and The Brugge Project


A story about the season and the squad so far at Bruges . From the first moment we get Bruges in our hands, we try to grow step by step . Finding the young talents in Belgium, or the unknown stars who still had to be discovered. Our goal this season was trying to get a season without any problems, so a decent spot between place 8 and 12 . Not a problem normally with the quality in our squad. After 15 matches , we are in the top 6 , even a few weeks back on the top of the division, together with Standard and Anderlecht. Belgium Up !

The team then. Though the manager was not really convinced about the number 1 Volkan Babacan ( TUR,27 ), he gives him the confidence he needed , with 2 young talents after him with Sondre Rossbach (NOR,20) , and Davy Roef ( BEL,22 ) (who will be expected to be soon at the heels of Volkan 

In right defence we have a player that a lot of managers want in their team, Thomas Meunier              ( Thomas just told me he just wants to stay at the Venice of Belgium, till we have a decent replacement ) , and there is a lot to be expected from Dutch young star Timo Letschert , who will be excepted to send Guillaume Gillet to the exit . For the replacing of Thomas we try to negotiate with the Ajax Manager to sign Ricardo Van Rhijn, but at the moment it is still “a no go” from the Dutch Manager. In the Central of the defence we are quite good for the next years , although some opportunities we will never let go. For the moment we have Bjorn Engels ( BEL, 21 ), Stefano Denswil (NET,23 ), Jakub Brabec (CZE,23 ) who are fighting for the 2 spots. In the Youth team we expect a lot of Matthias Bossaerts ( BEL,20 ) and Karim Essikal ( MAR,20 ). On the left defence there is a untouchable Luca Antonelli ( ITA,29 ) with Lorenzo Melgarejo ( PAR,25 ) as a replacement. And for the future we hope on the further developing of Dario Van den Buijs ( BEL,20) 
Thomas Munier
Our midfield is our strongest and our weakest spot from the team . Our captain Sven Kums ( BEL,28 ) the most importing player, followed by box-t-box player Ruud Vormer ( NED,28 ) and rising star Hans Vanaken ( BEL,23 ) . The rest of the players are on this moment all very talented , but too weak to compete in 5th division. Rob Schoofs ( BEL,22 ), Lucas Schoofs ( BEL,19 ), Bryan Heynen ( BEL,19 ), Joher Khadim Rassoul ( SEN,20 ), Sander Coopman ( BEL,21 ), Ismail H’Maidat ( MAR,21 ), so we are good for the future, but need some quality injection for the rest of the season in case of injury or suspending .

 On the attacking wings in the A-squad are running experienced people like Arouna Kone ( ICO,32 ) , Lior Refaelov ( ISR,30 ), Matthieu Dossevi ( CON,28 ) as big talents like Jose Izquierdo ( COL,24 ) and Felipe Gedoz ( BRA,23 ) . In Youth only big talented guys like Ramadan Sobhi ( EGY,19 ) ,Dodi Lukebakio ( BEL,18 ) and Leandro Trossard ( BEL,21 ).

In attack will disappear some players to the transferlist,  because strikers ( only 13 ) enough in the squad. Most of the time it’s Jelle Vossen ( BEL,27 and ranking 3th in scoring list ) who is standing in point of the attack, or Abdoulaye Diaby ( MAL,25 ) , with as a replacement Nicola Castillo ( CHI,23 ) and Mbwana Samatta ( TAN,23 ) and Andraz Sporar ( SLO,22 ) who came both of Hellas Verona. Biggest names in youth are Moses Simon ( NIG,21 ) and Moraes Wesley ( BRA,19 ).
Jelle Vossen – Mrs Davy’s favourite
So still on the transfer market looking for 2 midfielders and the team is good for a couple of seasons  . Let’s hope the chairman will keep faith in the guy who adores the team he is managing!

HOWEVER: Some Division 5 managers are claiming that this Belgian dominance is nothing more than an example of corruption. 

Tom Parfitt said: “If those three sides work together they have the power to defeat everyone else and its just not fair. I’m not having it I tell you…” It is not 100% clear whether Parfitt’s lastest outburst is related to his jealously of Princess Marshmellow…

Ruts said: “I am not prepapred to miss out on promotion again due to a triumvirate of mangers manipulating the results. It is not on. I am contacting Frank to break up this racket!

Ryan Chisholm said: “Its is kinda ironic that the 3 teams within a 5 mile radius of each other are dominating a division. A Prince, A bloody Mascot and an alcolholic… Nah something is not right here. Celta should be top of the Division… we should be 10 points clear such is the quality of my management. 

Gav Harmer said: “If I get sacked for the 2nd season in the row they I know that I will need to blame those 3 Belgian clubs who have manipulated everyone to ensure they are all 1,2,3…
