Nice loans from Genk
Hello once again Torhout fans,
Thank you for the massive amount of e-mails you sent to me during the off-season with transfer target options, possible destinations for friendlies or just congratulating me on extending my contract with the club. And unfortunately, I won't be signing Messi's son to the club, which has been the most popular suggestion. The positive response we received for inviting 6 Pro League sides to the Velodroome has appreciated, and a friendly win against Standard Liege was just the perfect way to start the season.
There was no time left to enjoy that victory because the Third Round of the Belgian Cup drew us against non-league side, Beringen. The boys did well and we got through the match with a 3-1 victory, looking forward to our next game against fellow Third Division A side, Deinze. Deinze strengthened their side a lot during the break and are one of the favourites to be in the playoffs, so we needed to do well to win the tie. We ran out comfortable 4-1 winners, much to the delight of the fans in the stands. This victory meant we entered the Fifth Round, the round in which we got thrown out of the competition by Dessel, and as expected, we would be meeting Mouscron-Peruwélz. The fans didn't go into the tie expecting too much, but a 2' goal shocked the opponents and gave the boys the confidence they needed. Now, we await our Sixth Round opponents.
Our league form has carried on from last season, winning 2 out of the 3 games we have played so far, the only draw coming against last year's early leaders, Oudenaarde. Goals have been coming from strikers, midfielders and defenders, so the entire team is playing with momentum.
Our top-striker isn't fancied by lots of people in the media, especially since he was on a 31-hour goalless before joining our club. I took a gamble, and it paid off as Ternier scored within an hour on his debut, and scoring three more in the consequent 5 games. With Yde, Ternier and fellow new signing, Emaankaf, our strike force is looking strong.
