The Dillen Index: Race to Win PSV's Golden Boot

My first thread in the new PSV forum and named after the legend himself, Coen Dillen. His tally of 43 goals in the 1956/7 is still an Eredivisie record

Here are the stats thus far this season:

Eredivisie:

Mertens 16
Toivonen 15
Matavz 9
Wijnaldum 8

All Competitions:

Mertens 21
Toivonen 21
Matavz 17
Wijnaldum 13

9 rounds of the Eredivisie to come.

A RO16 return leg on Thursday vs Valencia in the EL which should be interesting and of course a KNVB Beker semi vs Heerenveen.

I have always like Toivonen as a player, hope he keeps up his excellent form.

Well goalwise/statisticly it is a good form but performance wise not so much. The guy doesnt have the brains nor vision to play in this position and I wouldnt mind us selling him.


WB great title name, Dillen the legend
Funny thing is Matavz has scored more goals in EL and Cup for us than in the league. I feel really bad for him because he could have had a lot more were it not for the rest of the team.

If one player was to leave from the mids and attackers that starts i would want it to be Ola. Stats are good but he dosent add anything that is not already there in the eam anymore.

Yeah, very funny thing when considering Matavz. Wonder why that is?

WB the Matavz stats are a bit misleading though he has scored 9 for PSV in Eredivise but his total tally in Eredivisie is 12, he scored 3 for Groningen.

And there you have an answer he scored 3 for Grun in a few matches while he has had around 20 to score 9 for PSV. At PSV he hasnt got a player like Tadic who will serve him up even though Mertens has had more assists this season than the beforementioned.

Here are the rest of the PSV goalscorers in the Eredivisie:

Zakaria Labyad 5
Jermain Lens 5
Kevin Strootman 2
Wilfred Bouma, Manolev and Marcelo 1

Perhaps Van Der Gijp was right about playing Lens in this system. Matavz doesnt function properly in this system with these players while Lens has allready scored 5 goals in his limited playing time.


I would also like to showcase the most notable assistgivers in the Eredivisie:

Mertens 11
Labyad 7
Wijnaldum 5

Even though I call Mertens a pretty selfish player his assiststats makes me rethink this thought. He is 4th in the whole league after Narsingh, John and Eriksen.

Yeah but for PSV (not including his 3 goals at Grun) he has scored more goals in the Cup and EL combined than in the Eredivsie.

Still a very strange fact considering both the amount of matches in each and the difficulty of the opponent.

Toivonen has now scored more goals in all competitions than Mertens after his goal vs Valencia.

Who do you reckon is going to finish top scorer overall? Its a really tough one to say but i hope Ola does so we can sell him in June.

He is important for us now, but he is getting old and we have to get money for or players. He deserves a nice club.

Yeah I hope and think Mertens will be club topscorer, Mertens hasnt been scoring much as off late and jugding by last year he wont get any better in latest part of the season.

I would love for us to sell Ola, he is 26 already and IMO a player that we could miss the only problem would be that we would be left without someone for that #10 spot. Even though Ola isnt perfect on that spot I know Wijnaldum hasnt got what it takes to step up while Im not sure if Labyad has got what it takes to fill in that spot, what is your oppinion guys?

Old and 26 p

Mertens will probably become topscorer with him taking the penalties.


Lex Immers - Pace & power. Holland's #1 box to box player

Feyenoord forum - the place to talk about this phenomenon

Ronald Koeman "Oranje kan Immers goed gebruiken"

Fred Rutten "Feyenoord heeft Immers nodig"

Van Marwijk over Lex Immers: 'Stille kracht van Feyenoord'

John de Wolf “Dat is nou precies de aanjager, het ’etterbakkie’ in het veld dat Feyenoord in dit soort wedstrijden nodig heeft"

A bit of an update with only 4 games to go in all competitions.

Eredivisie:

Mertens 18
Toivonen 16
Matavz 11

All Competitions:

Mertens 24
Toivonen 24
Matavz 20

Not that im not counting Matavz hat-trick he scored for Groningen in the Eredivisie. This is goals scored for PSV only.

Gini has actually scored plenty this season as well. 8 in the league and 14 overall. Lens would have definitely scored more if he had more playing time. Labyad is the real let down, he only has a good record in the Cup where he scored against the amateur teams.

Strange to have a 10 and a LW battle it out for clubtopscorer.. Still thinking Mertens will become clubtopscorer in the end.

One round to go and the top looks like this:

Eredivisie:

Mertens 20
Toivonen 18

Overall:

Mertens 26
Toivonen 26

Im so happy for Mertens that he managed to get 20 league goals this season I hope he is the overall leader as well. He has deserved it this season.

Its also worth noting that Lens, with 8 Eredivisie goals now, is tied in 4th spot with Gini as our topscorer in the league. I always knew that if he started more he would be one of our top scorers

Lens should have had even more if you take in account last weekend's game. He should have had at least 3 goals in that game.

He creates a lot of chances, but he also wastes a lot.
