'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Jan Vertonghen

Now I will begin this article by saying that I was massively impressed by Jan, SuperJan, last season and saw him as a player to build our spine around - along with Loris and Sandro.

Clearly then he has talent. Now onto this season - I cannot remember a game in which Jan has impressed me and most certainly in the last few months it has seemed clear that he also has a poor attitude. There are so many images of Jan in the tunnel before the match on Sunday and quite rightly, as a supporter you have to be worried by that body language.

I have noticed it before. So, the big debate is - do we feel Jan is someone we should try to keep or sell? Those in the club will know the truth and his attitude and dip in form may just be second season syndrome and frustration at his form. However, I think it is more likely that he wants out and the AVB sacking and employment of Tim (don't get me started on that one) was a good excuse to force a move, protect himself for World Cup year and it would seem, appear too good for the club we love.

Speculation, loss of form or bad attitude. Either way, my opinion of Jan is no longer Super and his performances, for me, no longer warrant him being a natural starter and I would be looking for a centre back as well as a left back as a priority. I am expecting divided opinion on this, we are a loyal bunch and do not know the real facts, sympathy with his frustrations at Tim, but poor performances in a Spurs shirt none the less.
