    Some information in english about the Belgian scandal
    https://www.google.co.il/amp/www.go...e-raid-top-clubs-in/fex0l78nmhtc1csepm6xyhw9p

    It's getting very bizzare, the investigation is all over the place from money laundering to a person buying a car for a referee wife(not proven yet but the rumors are big).

    Vincent Kompany and some others big names in the Belgian football already said that its a huge blow to our reputation and image and i can't agree more.

    Next week Brugge would play vs Monaco while Burgge coach(Leko) was just released from arrest today.

    Some news from the corrpution front. In Belgium, 19 persons have been indicted, nine are in prison right now, including three agents, a team's lawyer and a referee.

    Also, Champions League group stage match PSG v Red Star Belgrade (6-1) may have been fixed.

    Bolt is much better than I thought he was going to be -- he has some real skill.

    You forgot he got kicked in the ballz and played well after that.

    He got a nice shot and can get the opportunity goal in counter attack.

    This German team is so unbelievably washed up, holy hell.

    Love how Löw hasn't learned anything from the world cup and is playing the same scrubs who have not shown **** for years now.

    @arno_ed and @Ace, y'all have a promising generation, the next years should be exciting for Dutch football.

    Löw needs to go. We won the world cup despite him, not because of him.

    A tad drastic in the moment of a bad game, but I agree top brass should not have agreed to carry on with him as the team needed a new beginning badly after the tournament.

    Today just got even worse and more depressing.
    The biggest news for me was the fact that some teams alredy started to question controversial games in the past and asking the police to investigate specific games.

    Also interesting to hear that the Belgian federation is seeking psychological help for the referees, it's hard enough mentally to be a referee i can't imagine what the fans reaction would be after the fixing allegations.

    I'm guessing that will hear less news about that in the coming days due to the Belgian local elections that would happen on tomorrow.

    That's some next level bullshit. Can't even spell the name correctly.

    Every game it gets harder and harder to defend Löw. Not sure what he's trying to accomplish with Ginter as a wing defender. I mean, all in all it wasn't a bad game and under normal circumstances that's a 2-1 win or at least a draw, it's not like the Dutch controlled the game or something, they just got lucky. We totally lost our drive and self-awareness.

    The crucial thing is, this isn't even a generational problem you could solve by just rejecting Kroos, Boateng and Müller and build up a new team. If I ever have to see Draxler or Sané in a German jersey again, I'll probably turn off right away. Total disgrace, both of them should be ashamed of how they played recently for the national team. Don't give a **** how they do for their clubs, they should be out for the EURO 2020 at least.

    If the France game on Tuesday turns into a disaster as well, there's no way out for Löw. One name that came to my mind to replace him is Arsene Wenger, since he coached Mertesacker's farewell match today. Speaks German fluently, knows most of the players, well-respected and maybe now disposed for a job as national coach in which he doesn't have to deal with transfers and day-to-day-business.
