Ok we all no my thoughts on Vlaar so I am not going to bore you with my normal negative comments on him.
But let’s face it the ‘boy’ done good in the World Cup and his stock has risen big time. Forgetting the penalty miss last night (as Ferdinand says ‘that’s not what he’s there for’) he had a faultless display against a team that has the best player in the world even though he’s not quite the player he was in recent years. Having said that I don’t care what he does for Holland it’s what he does for us that matters.
My problem with Vlaar is that he is error prone which I know applies to all footballers, but he is more error prone than most and can makes lots of unforced errors during a game. Even though iv been his biggest critic I did say that up to the Chelsea home game he hardly put a foot wrong for us. For so e reason after that he went back to his comedy defending of his first season. We all know LVG plays him in a back 3 which means he can commit to winning the ball knowing he has cover behind him. Unfortunately we have a clueless manager that does not play to his strengths and doesn’t know how too. Also he is surrounded by poor quality defenders and poor midfielders which does not help.
My other gripe is he us injury prone and can miss up to 3 months of a season at a crucial time for us.
So on this basis should we take the reported £15m on offer from UTD or should we cash in now while the going is good for a player who has 12 months of his contract left.
