Dries "The Belgian Messi" Mertens


Joined in the summer from Utrecht together with Strootman for 13m. Already looking like both were a bargain.

Started the season in scintillating form but has died down during the coarse of it. Struggling a bit to add another dimension in his game but has improved on it for sure.

Our top scorer with 18 Eredivisie goals with 3 games remaining. 24 in all competitions.

His mazy dribbles have been a joy to watch this season but there is news that both Bayern Munich and Liverpool are interested in him. Nonetheless i think he will stay for at least another year but only time will tell.

Will we be able to keep him next season is the question though?

I remember Bayern beein pretty interested in him and right now they have this situation with Robben, who apperently wants to leave after the Ribery incident.

I think so.

I heard that Robben and Ribery made up and that Arjen is going to sign a new contract.

Plus BM have already signed my 2nd favourite Albanian player of all time.

Its only a false made up according to VI. Robben is still very angry.

Not talking about Robben's behaviour after the fight, just Robben in general

Hail Hail the Belgian Messi!

21 Eredivisie goals which makes him our top scorer for 2011/12.

Only 29 league goals behind the actual Messi

Shall we have a vote for player of the year? For me it is unneccesary but if you guys think not everyone will vote on Mertens than I could make a poll.

Toivonen, Strootman, Willems and Tyton could be options to.

He made some friends in England after pushing Cahill most likely out of the EC.
