Jan Vertonghen

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.

seems like now we have sold our best players, including Bale, players like Jan and Paulinho who signed based on the premise they'd be playing alongside Bale now feel betrayed. but that's football.

Whats surprising about Jan is that he doesn't even try to hide his lack of effort. Ledley played on through pain, heck even Hossam Ghaley played on for us after having his front teath kicked out. Super Jan? More like Ginger tw*t, he has become haalf-a55ed to the club that pays him millions a year to perform for 90 minutes a week. He complains about where he plays and doesn't complain when Belgium play him there. His slips, mistakes and lazy play have cost us points and he doesn't even go to clap the travelling support. The man is a cancer within our club, get rid and good riddance!

Windle. I posted an article called "put up or shut up" a few weeks back saying pretty much what your article says. I completely agree. Bale might have wanted to leave but he still gave his all, something I don't see in Vertonghen.

If LVG is our next manager then we should keep Vertonghen. He will stay to play for LVG and LVG will make sure he works his knackers off or he'll be cleaning the toilets after training for a few weeks. What is clear is that Jan has a big, big ego. If he feels the manager he is playing for is a match for him in terms of ability and ambition then he will play for them. If he feels he is superior to them he will just take the pi$$. He will have met his match with LVG. If Sherwood stays or someone as unproven as him arrives as manager then we need to ship Vertonghen out because his malaise will be contagious and will cause nothing but problems. Over to you then Daniel Levy.

The problem here I believe is Sherwood, why would you want to play for a moronic half wit with absolutely no idea. Jan has been brought up in a country who's philosophy is that of total football not "Right you F*ckers run a F*ckin rand or I'll Punch Ya".... We've lost the time hopefully this will lead to losing Tim Nice but Dim soon. I still don't rule out losing Lloris, Jan and Paulinho as the end of the season.

fletch77 - If a player decides he can pick and choose who he plays for regardless of whose paying him then he isn't someone you want at your club. When a club is trying to punch above its weight, as we constantly are, then it can't afford players who play when they feel like it.

There is a very obvious attitude issue with Verts. You would expect every player to look enthusiastic and be bouncing around to psych themselves up in the tunnel before the game. But he just looks like it’s an ordeal he has to go through. Even when he was playing well he never looked like he was enjoying it. Every Spurs fan would take his place for a tenth of his salary if they got the chance. I’d play for board and keep! If his attitude persists I think he has to go ... he looks like he’ll probably make it happen in any case. Sad really.

Told you at the start of the season that Jan was massively over-rated as a defender (in that he's not actually that good in stopping the opposition scoring) and his flaws were covered up by scoring a few goals. I also said that I'd take both Kos and Merts above Jan and that Wenger had it right when he looked to buy him as a def-mid as opposed to a defender. And oh how you laughed.

He's just like Vermalen in style and ability. Look beyond the image he has and look at his stats - tackles, headers won/lost, clean sheet % etc and you'll find that he is not that good!

Think he will be off in the summer anyway and if Barca offer 15m bite their hand off and get Caulker back from Cardiff with some change!

So Jan goes from our best player to being alienated by the "fans" as our worst player. Being called out for "His" dip in form and his "costly" mistakes... WOW!!! Lets put things into perspective a little, the WHOLE team is playing sheit! Jan has been asked to play either side of CB and LB and a cameo CDM role at some stage, Jan has had to share his def duties with the 'ever increasingly positively good guy who runs around and jumps into tackles with the captains arm band on' who who who is a complete joke of a defender and should not be on the same planet as Verts never mind the same phucking pitch!!! Tell me how is Dawsons form windlespurs? Danny Rose anyone? Phuckit if you actually take your rose tinted glasses off and see the picture as a whole u will notice that despite Jan operating at 50% he is still leagues ahead of any of our def players. Do u want to know why Jan is annoyed? Cause he is sick and tired of being managed by a complete novice who has phuckall clue about tactics! Add the deluded fan base who jeer rather than support! Sure lets sell Jan cause he looks annoyed by losing! Who's the phucking LOSERS then???

Defo keep him, he's just as disillusioned as the fans. He probably wants a decent coach to develop his game. Something Dim isn't capable of. Surely the appointment of LVG would fire Jan up and show our ambition - at least for one more year.

This malaise has infected more than just vertonghen , if it was just him I would be the first to say get rid but their are plenty on the park showing a distinct lack of enthusiasm, players not closing down or chasing back or busting their asses to support an attack , there is something seriously wrong at our club and it is more than one issue . There wont be any easy or quick fix to this and personally think this could set us back for at least a couple of seasons . Some serious leadership is going to be needed , on and off the park .I hope i'm wrong .

I'd rather ship out Chiriches, Dawson and Kaboul and start fresh with defence. Buy back Caulker, Fryers can be 4th CB and add another good EPL defender to compliment Verts. If Dim is in charge - probably Shawcross (aka Chris Perry) lol

It is clear that Jan has limitations, attitude aside, in the areas of pace and aerial dominance but these are compensated by his reading of the game and the ability to bring the ball out of defence, or would be if any of the other players were looking to receive the ball rather than hiding. I think in a better team he would shine, but in a poor side his weaknesses are exposed This coupled with the sale of Bale and I guess the guy is just demotivated with Tim's tactics being the final straw. I agree with GG though, if Barca want him, grab the money but I wouldn't spend it on Caulker who is another defensive nightmare.

But Jan's reading of the game and anticipation of danger is far superior to Daws - so he doesn't need to be quicker. I don't think the high line helps any of our defenders. Maybe a change in tactics will see an overall change in defensive form. Maybe this is why Jan is fed up - he's not set up for success in our current approach

The problem goes back to the summer...we needed to buy a LB, Rose as a returning loanee should never have been put as 1st choice and fryers was miles of....yet we didn't...resulting in Jan having to cover the left side -playing LB when Rose was injured and having to play CB and LB when Rose was fit- we had the opprtunity to fix that in January and again declined...you see Verts isn't the problem it's having players like Rose as 1st choice that's brings the others down....Capoue and Pauli watching a guy who should be cleaning their boots take their place...Soldado watching Townsend lose possession by blazing another shot into row Z instead of passing to him...the chairman selling the best players and then appointing an idiot to manage...'the project' is derailed, there is no ambition from the board...why does anyone expect players to jump for joy? Like anyone else they'll try and be professional but they will leave as soon as they can...

Per PL Game

Tackles: Jan 1.4, Kos 2.1, Merts 1.3, Cahil 1 Terry 1 Komp 2.3 Agger 1.5

so not too shabby there!

Interceptions: Jan 1.7, Kos 2.7, Mert 1.7 Cahil 1.9, Terry 1.1, Komp 1.9, Agger 0.9

Not bad there either!

Blocked shots

Jan 0.3, Kos 0.7, Mert 0.6, Daws 0.1, Cahil 0.8, Terry 0.6, Komp 0.6 Agger 04

So underperforming there.

Overall clearances per game:

Jan 4.5, Kos 7.2 Mert 7, Daw 1.1,Cahil 7.4, Terry 6.7, Komp 5.5, Agger 5.5

So below average there.

Looking at those stats I'd say that over the defenders selected that Dawson is clearly the worst followed by Jan.

Also worth noting that since Jan joined your average goals per game (against) has gone from 1.08 in 2011/12, to 1.21 2012/13 to 1.38 this season.

I don't see Jan Vertonghen as a weekness, when he arrived he showed us all why we chased after him to sign for us, yes his had a dip in form, like the rest of them. He can't be that bad Barca would have him tomorrow if they could, can't say that about Dawson and Rose, when you have those two either side of you, it's hard to look a class player, which he is.

So we fans can get disillusioed withthe club, demand the manager be changed, deride the player sfor poor performances, dispare when certain players are selected despite the fact we all know they will struggle. But Jan must plaster on a $hit easting grin, and run around as if nothing is wrong and none of the above is allowed to phase him. Double standards?

I cannot understand why we pick on Jan now. Have Rose, Kaboul, Dawson, Walker been so excellent??? Jan is still our best defender and someone with whom you can build up play from the back. We should try to keep players like Jan and try to surround him with other players of his quality instead of the Roses or Naughtons that we keep year in year out!

Lol GG that's intriguing you've successfully compared Jan to the best def in the league and his stats look great as far as I can see. Basically a player which reads the game very well and played half the season at LB so not really in the position to block more shots and which none of those other few players u mentioned have played and he successfully passes the ball out of defense rather than hoofing it? Suffice to say that since Jan joined he is partnered with a donkey.

Compared to last season (in brackets):

Tackles 1.4 (3.1)

Interceptions: 1.8 (2.9)

Blocked Shots: 0.3 (0.2) Clearances: 4.7 (8.7)

While your defence has gotten worse this season to last (by about 14% Goals per game ratio) Jan own performance level has dropped by about 80% (statistic based only!).

Maybe he's having a pi$$ poor season or maybe he simply had a great season last year and this season is his level?

Mix, he hasn't played that much at left back and even if he did left/right backs make far more tackles and interceptions than CB. They block less shots.

Thank you Galway, you have shown why Spurs have struggled so much this season over last season. And the massive impact a tactical change has on a team. I don't attribute a 80% drop in form to a player having a wonder season and then finding his level, I suggest it is the result of a very good player being played in a very bad defensive formation and set-up.
Slurms McKenzie
02/04/2014 12:25:00

I am not saying that he's 80% worse than last season Slurms only that's what his stats show and while useful as a guide they never tell the full picture.

I think his form has been far worse than last year and that some of his limitations are being exposed this season far more than last. Maybe that's because he's known as a player now and opposition managers have targeted weak areas of his game.

As to the is he a great player having a bad season or a average player who was great last year well so far we only have 2 seasons worth of stats in the PL to go on so either theory has the same data for and against it!

My own feeling is that his lack of pace will always be an issue in England and he'd be better suited in Italy.

I'm not disputing the stats Galway, I agree that the "known" entity factor does come into play, but he has been very much hamstrung with the highline tactics Spurs insist on playing, despite not reallly having any CBs or full backs capable of playing this system, which in turn more then highlights his lack of pace. In this case I don't think the stats lie, he is very much having a season to forget but I think the blame for a lot of it lies at other peoples door.

A number of factors here. Jan was quite public about being used as LB. That's one of the reasons why he left Ajax. Ajax failed to play him in his preferred position and I bet he mentioned to AVB he must play CB. Injuries also dictated where he played ..yep LB again and to add to his woes Spurs failed to bring in a LB during the transfer window. Plus he gets injured playing LB. Also Verts gets thrown in to the lions den without much match practice hence his poor form. COYS!

Good comments & agree Mix - I would not have Dawson in my side. I would love to have a motivated, performing Jan in our team. As some have said (& I did) he has qualities, but we have all seen that he has been poor this season (backed up by GG stats if you are into that). MY BIG VIEW is that we need a change of Manager NOW. Things with the likes of Jan, Hugo, Eriksen, Sandro (all players we should keep) could get much worse before the summer window opens. Lets hope they get better, but feel these players need an announcement and even if Freund in charge, a better end to the season for such momentum.

Of course the likes of Vertonghen, Paulinho, Lloris, Capoue have lost heart, and are going through the motions, waiting on an end of season move out. Who can blame them, they were fed all the crap about CL qualification, and the club's ambition, and vision for the future etc, what happens, Lloris apart, they have not known from week to week whether they are playing, or in what position they are playing, and have ended up in a side managed by a sponge man, a total novice, a football idiot, with no man management skills, no playing system, no understandable tactics, baffling team selections and set ups, and an insatiable ego, and they know there are others out there interested, probably prepared to pay them higher wages, providing they don't get themselves crocked before the end of the season. But no worries because if he stays in charge, which is apparently the chairman's preferred option, Sherwood will ensure that we will have the march of all the Benteleb clones into the first team, and we will begin our 2014-5 assault on reaching the 40 points necessary to retain PL status. We might even narrow the pitch, and find a long throw merchant to complete our conversion to a Stoke City under Tony Pullis look alike. What an absolutely inspired prospect, just the way to fill the new stadium, if indeed we ever build it.

A goalkeeper's job is made easier with a steady, consistent and confident back 4. Same applies to CB's when they know they can trust the midfield to plug the gaps between midfield and defence. Nothing worse knowing the midfield are not up to the task and have to do more than one job. CB was my position and I know how difficult it is with a leaky midfield and that goes for any standard of football. COYS!

Mix - nobody has said Jan has gone from being our best player to our worst. His performances have gone from great to poor and his attitude to boot. Me, I would get a manager in who can make him great again (no coach can do that with Dawson) but can not hide how bitterly disappointed I am with his performances and attitude. Yes, TERRIBLE Decisions made have contributed massively I feel (Selling Bale, appointing Tim), but no excuse for his unprofessionalism. Do I want Jan to stay & regain high levels - Yes.

Remember at one point this season, we had the most clean sheets and best defence. Then it all went pear shaped. As for the goals against ratio, you cant hold Verts alone responsible, the entire defence takes the credit for that. He is accountable for the mistakes he has made and wether its down to form or lack of effort or attitude, he should be more professional and try and address his weaknesses. Or perhaps that is the managers job??? Anyway, if LVG was announced as next seasons manager tomorrow, I am sure you would see a change in attitude from the players. Then again if I had to play with Dawson and Rose every week I know how I would feel.

It's also about players not thinking they might as well pi$$ into the wind, as play for a manager for whom they have no respect, or belief, they realise that they are better than that, and will go elsewhere and prove it. We will see the overwhelming majority of our better players seeking moves in the summer, unless we get an unambiguous statement from Levy very soon, on the manager position situation for next season. If it is to be Sherwood, then we should expect the exodus to accelerate at the end of the season.

Frank, good point re:the silence from Levy on the manager's position.

Either way, the lack of a clear statement from Levy is just going to cause the current malaise to continue.

Every season our big major players have this issue,it`s a pattern that continues to repeat itself at Spurs.
Carrick,Modric,keane,Berbatov,Bale,now Vertonghen.....

Something wrong with the club not the player as this situation should not happen as often as it does.

The right manager bringing the right mentality is what we need.

IMO it looks like Spurs actually give these players false promises & false dawns.Lloris will be next....
project??? please explain how this Spurs we`re seeing now is any sort of project.
To promise player one thing & find ourselves in this situation then maybe Vertonghen has been misread.

Maybe Vertonghen is feeling the same as Spurs fans,we`ve all given up the same as he has & a big part of me doesn`t blame him.
he came here in good spirits but the club has let him down,the club has let the fans down & all the club does it let people down.

I just think we should see it from Vertonghens point of view.

Liverpool & Spurs this season are chalk & cheese in terms of motivation,happy fans & team spirit.

I find it odd that fans are criticising Vertonghen because he`s feeling exactly the same way you are.

I'll not single out Jan but, I don't care what the circumstances are with tactics, coaching, broken promises or, whatever. A player should give his all, regardless. I'd rather watch 10 Dawson's running around with a blood and guts attitude and lose, than watch half a team of Messis' who couldn't give a damn and lose anyway. That is the same for Sunday league as it is for the PL.

If I get a new boss at work that I think doesn't have a clue what their doing, then It's up to me to show them how. I can't make excuses for my own lack of a professional attitude, if I already know how the job should be done.
