    They are saying he can't pay a sum in a legal case (he and bro built property in a natural reserve) because there's only 6$ in his bank account.
    My amateur guess is he has a secret bank account for tax evasion and got enough money, otherwise would be hard to explain how he can keep up with his lifestlyle. Unless he went total retard.

    Terrible, teribble, terrible finish by Juve. Pjanic missed two wide open goals, unacceptable. Not to mention Cuadrados miss that i think my little sister could’ve finished.

    I'm surprised that Viktor Kassai is still appointed to call Champions League matches.

    His latest masterpiece - calling a penalty here...

    Apparently it's been almost a month since the beginning of the Belgian football scandal.

    A new report came out today and at least 4 suspects are still in jail for almost a month.

    One of the suspects still in jail is Bart Vertenten a known Belgian referee, not a good in terms of integrity.

    Is it the first scandal in that regard?

    Belgium must be helluva revolutionary football country - Jean Marc Bosman and the Bosman ruling, had to make sure he was Belgian.

    There was a very big scandal in 1984 but since than nothing in the same level as those 2.

    Well all you have to do is to look on the rules of our league to understand that there is something unique in Belguim.

    I'm not sure if you or the other guys here are aware of it but Jean Marc Bosman story is really crazy, he really messed up and pretty much fuc*ed up everything after finishing his playing career.

    Still down after Bayern's loss to Dortmund yesterday. Fantastic match, excellent promotion for Bundesliga football. Our guys had their best match in months, so nevertheless losing to the biggest rival hurts. At least this specific group has shown, that they're no hopeless case. Just wish we had Thiago and Coman in that game, would've made a huge difference.

    Some say Bundesliga is over now, but I'm not sold on Dortmund's defense. This young team will show some inconsitency sooner or later. Also hope Mönchengladbach stays on track. If we're not in the title race this year, so be it. Won it six times in a row, three was the record before that. Maybe Bayern can reduce the deficit with the kinda easy schedule coming now. Kovac should play the younger guys Süle, Goretzka, Sanches, Gnabry, Coman and Davies a whole lot anyway.

    Agreed with mostly everything, but even though Dortmund's defense can indeed be shaky sometimes, it's better than ours and they also win on the offensive end. Think we'll have more trouble winning consistently.

    Btw, interesting comments from Hoeneß in an interview with Wontorra today, said the face of the team will change a lot in the next summer transfer window.
    Sounds like a lot of transfers and byes incoming.

    More information/rumors from Belgium.

    Apparently Dejan Veljkovic a Serbian player agent with connections to fc Lokeren is suspected in match fixing.

    In 2015 he was dinning with some Belgian referees and even with the head of the referee union.

    Information is still lacking but some rumors imply that he uesd some intimidation tactics and his own connections in the football world to pressure the referees to help Lokeren win.
