Polbelg, Vanderhaeghen is a decent player, but he isn't as good as the Belgian media want us to believe. I'm soo fed up with all those interviews how he nearly died.
. Please give me a break.
It's all because of this idea in Belgium that a footballplayer should be able to run a marathon and that knowing how to control a ball is optional. Thereby someone who runs a whole game long has played a good game. After Real-Anderlecht Antheunis made the comment "I'm pleased: all my players ran their hearth out" the fact that their passing was plain awfull didn't bother him
. this mentallity brought suckers as Delbroek and Chris Janssens in the national team.
Coming back at Vanderhaeghen. He is a decent player good condition, decent technique, but not good enough for the highest level. Why because is (don't know how to say this in english)) "handelingssnelheid" is way too low. This doesn't show in the Belgian league, but in the CL or international games it does. The times he needs to control a ball and pass it through is soo long.
So if you're going to give the golden boot to somebody, give him to someone who really has that international class. This is probably the last year Koller plays in Belgium. Wouldn't it be a complete disgrace if the only player of European class (and I'm not even saying worldclass although I should) who played in Belgium for the last 10 years would get this price? It would be a disgrace, but I also think it would be typical :fero:
