STVV-Anderlecht: 4-2. Antwerp-STVV: 1-3. STVV-Standard: 1-1. Lokeren STVV: 2-0. After the sprightly football and the associated successes against the paper-reform of our national league, followed Daknam an uppercut. Actually, that's only a small surprise, because the Canaries were more stitches falling against the so called lesser gods. STVV achieved to date against the current top four – Racing Genk, Club Brugge, Antwerp and Anderlecht – a handsome 12 to 18, while the four lowest geklasseerden more than once the teeth bite. Against Zulte Waregem, Waasland-Beveren, Mouscron and Lokeren took the less than 8 to 15. Either: 67 percent of the points against the big ones, versus 53 percent against the degradatiekandidaten. Curious.
Decompression? Otherwise play football? A mentaliteitskwestie? Coach Marc Brys did the past few days everything to that last not any cause to to seek. “After these handsome series against the top hammered I constantly on to Lokeren not to be underestimated. And that seemed to work, because I saw for the kick-off to a very motivated group of players that meet at the driving. But in retrospect proved to be wrong, there is apparently something. The proof that we still need to convert, we want the ambition to be able to reach.”
So a bit of an issue ‘in the koppeke’, already know Brys the defeat mainly to the shape of the day and a strong Lokeren. "We played sloppy and rushed. The story lacked. Especially for rest, we couldn't have four passes after each other, what our strength is. Lokeren was hungrier and sharper, and earned simply this victory."
but back with the feet on the ground? “This will wake everybody up shaking, but I do want to emphasize that STVV has a right to a bad day. This defeat is a pity, but we see our course match by match and focus on the very important bekerduel against AA Gent.” In line with the remarkable statistics put the Canaries to the top teams earlier this season about the knee.
