‘Then began one car closer to the other to drive until their fighting cocks eventually alighted’

This story from Sportwereld converges two of my favourite subjects into one: ex-Stoke City manager Johan Boskamp / internet translations from one language up by a state of being as a different.

    Sounds like the Boss learned a bit of aggro from the locals while coaching the British Stoke City.

    He is not likely to be the most balletic or graceful of movers, but I wouldn’t fancy being on the end of a slap from his huge bucket hands, especially given the weight behind it.

    They should transfer that journalist to the Jacksonville Joke to liven it up a bit.

    I tell you what though, I’d pay good money to watch Bossie “dazzle his rival in a sharp slap in the face”. ;-)

    Uh-oh, he’s now managing KSK Beveren. Do I sense an opportunity for the former Benders of Dender to regroup once more on Belgian soil for jolly japes and Sancerre swilling?! Or is OS working on a “Smashing Night Out with Tony Pulis” instead? ;-)

    09/10/2009 – KSK Beveren was heavily defeated on Friday night. Coach Johan Boskamp warned before the start of the season the young squad will be trounced someday, which happened on match day 9.

    Of the team that was highly praised last week not much remained after a quarter into play: D’Haemers forgot Radzinski’s pace is still present and the Canadian easily floored Lemmens. Cousin was sent off with an immediate red card after a dumb foul in midfield and the game was decided. The sending off was juste as it was a tackle from behind. Nowadays many referees would only punish a foul like this with a caution.

    Lierse was on cloud nine and referee Winter made it even worse by putting the ball on the spot in the 36′ after a alleged foul on De Witte. Cavens accepted the present, and through a magnificent goal of Wahed and a tap in of Matthys deepened the score to 4-0 before half time. For Beveren only Jacobs and Asante posed some threat, the latter remained in the dressing room at halftime after a heavy contact.

    In the second half D’Haemers, constantly 2 meters behind Radzinski was spared as he was subbed by Van Damme who positioned as a centre back and Lardenoit took over rightback position. Beveren couldn’t do much more than limit damages and succeeded for quite a while. Thanks to Cavens who failed to net two giant chances. With ten men and without injured Baghdad the Waasland boys ran after an invisible ball in midfield. Lierse impressed and the fans were delighted while yellow and blue awaited the final whistle.

    The match bled to death as the game was decided before the break. In the end Lierse was able to raise the score. Thiebaut placed his header behind Lemmens and after a light contact in the sixteen Winter pointed to the penalty spot again. Cavens left it for goalie Kujovic who also accepted the gift. Beveren awaits some mental curing in the coming days. Lierse is in seventh heaven and has its revenge after 6 years for the 7-1 defeat at the Freethiel on 12 April 2003. The Pallieters deserved their win fully. The aid they got from referee Winter was obvious but not necessary for this Lierse as they would have completed the task by themselves. The foul of De Witte on Snelders was heavier than the Cousin’s on Tshiala but was only sanctioned with a yellow card. Both penalty kicks were awarded after light contacts and when De Wilde was stopped illegally the logics card was spared. It was ref Winter’s fifth match in Belgium and googling the man shows he also is spoken off in his own country. Most discussed are the decision of awarding a spot kick or not. Also in the Jupiler Pro League the Dutch referees have not made a big impression and although the beautiful game is universal it appears our neighbours use different standards.

    Tom Van den Berghe offers you this summary:”

    Oh dear, looks like Bossie could do with a rousing visit from the Dender Benders!

    H :)
