When Wimmer deputised for Verts when he got injured he was fantastic. Over that period I certainly favoured Wimmer in the position irt to pure defending, he was doing a better job at the time imo. And I absolutely stick by that.
This is the difference. Verts has been in the best form ever for us imo in recent months and has cut out nearly all of the dicey stuff he and hugo made a habit of. His command of the position is now total and I hope it continues.
I still stand by Wimmer being a great defender and expect him to have a very good season at Stoke.
Verts going full boss is a win for us. No argument from me.
Hollywood should knock out a horror script based on this lot. Genuinely chilling...
He'll become Belgium's most capped player this week. A great achievement.
Already? He's got at least another four years left at international level if he wants.
Great achievment and he'll probably set a record that will be hard to beat.
The most accurate cliche of all is "form is temporary, class is permanent"
He's always had class... Playing left back in his first season he was great
Then there was the slump. The form went for whatever reason and he wasn't great BUT still a class player. (By the way I remember quite a few posters on here suggesting we should get rid of him at the time)
Add Poch, Toby et al and the class shines through, Its great to see..
By the way TA's form has dipped but the class remains.... If he hits top form and Verts stays on it we are going to a seriously tough unit to break
'appy days innit
According to google Jan Ceulemans is Belgium's most capped player with 96 caps, our Jan has 87.
It was probably the leaning on the tunnel wall away at Man City which did it.
However, watching that Spurs team was less exciting than gawping at a grown man lean on a wall, so I was all for it.
Maybe google's not as update as it should be? According to Goal and Martinez couple days ago, Jan currently has 95 caps.
95 according to Transfermarkt
The wiki you saw (I saw it too) hasn't been updated in a while. Jan's on 95.
Think his formed dipped during the AVB/ Sherwood period given the mess around the club and then post Poch he's just got better and better....seems directly correlated to his belief in the direction of the club and quality of team mates
Great talent but clearly was a point where he was frustrated with things a few years back that translated onto the pitch - don't blame him to be fair
Great he stuck with us and vice versa
Didn't he apparently hand in a transfer request when sherwood was manager. I'm sure that was the rumour at the time.
Scored another goal today. Anyone able to locate a vid?
He doesn’t look too bothered does he.
He really didn't need to play that game, Belgium qualified for the WC weeks ago.
Maybe it was personal.
He is now one of two players with the most caps for Belgium (96 caps). The other being Jan Ceulemans.
If he plays in their last qualifier, he will hold that record on his own.
He messed up before one of the Bosnia goals, probably just relieved to have made up.
Did he play as a left back or central defender in this match?
