Belgian Wrap: Anderlecht & Club Bruges Take Control
It all started wrong for Genk and Standard, it was almost too easy for Anderlecht and Bruges. The Belgian League first matchday of the season produced astonishing results but also confirmed the Brussels and Flanders giants are ready to challenge for the title again...
...as every year...
BTW belgian championship is officially called Jupiler League and not "eerste klasse" (first division in dutch).
OK. Different sites use both I wasn't sure which was "official."
Antwerp ? - ? Racing Genk
Anderlecht ? - ? Mechelen
Club Brugge ? - ? Beveren
Lierse ? - ? La Louviere

NAC and Lorken
Lokeren in Belgium is a "friendly" squad with NAC (Earnie Stewart's club in Holland). They support each other's squads (their hools even fight side-by-side). Just thought I'd add a tidbit.
You're right Lokeren is a pleasnt team with good supporters.They should finish the championship among the top 7.They have made a good start this year.
cool. i don't know much about Beligan series but i like their national team.
Thank you for supporting us !
The next big challenge is the qualifying matches for Euro 2004.We'll receive Bulgaria in 2 weeks time.

Re: NAC and Lorken
They sure do...
To be played this Sunday : Mouscron-Genk
I have two Nike Belgian National team t-shirts.
Always liked these Red Devils (hate Man Utd)
Do you have the "away "black shirt ?
Pretty nice isn't it ?
I have the black t-shirt. It's awesome.
I like black shirts most of the time.

89' De Vleeschauwer
I remember supporters putting up banners with '100 years of history, 20 years of misery' when they were celebrating their centenary year in Liege, that about sums it up, they haven't had a decent season, in 20 years, allthough they were second and third a few times after, but nothing more then that.
We may see that with the Revs in the future.
We've only had 7 sh***y seasons in a row though.
