#15 Jetro 'Carlton' Willems

A player that surely deserves his own thread after what has happened this season.


Bought in the summer from Andor's boys at the ripe age of 17. Started off playing for Jong PSV but after injuries to both Pieters and Tamata he became our starting LB for about 4-5 months where he grew as each game went on, confirming hes the most talented LB of his generation in the NL.

The highlight of the season is when he was preferred to a fit Pieters for a couple of games Also won the European Championship with Oranje U-17's in 2011.

He has just extended his contract with PSV until 2016. It will come into effect when he turns 18 in August

Whether he will be the starting LB at WC 2014, move to one of Europe's elite in the future or becomes a cult hero in Eindhoven im sure that the "new Gio" will be a player that we'll be talking about for quite a long time to come.

Erik Pieters got made to look silly by Romeo Castelen in de Kuip

The same happened to Willems by Rubenho.

Spot in Oranje is virtually guaranteed then

It's just an amateur club from Slinge, Rotterdam, who are excellent in developing youth. Jetro, Castaignos, BMI , only one I know who failed is Shayron Curiël, but that was all his own fault alm:
Others are Ali Benomar (NAC), Markiet (Utrecht), Mossaoui (playing in Bulgaria now) and old Sparta legend Venneker

Apart from Burnet he has been the best Dutch LB in the league this season. Form wise better than Erik but thats because hes played more this season.

I was just wondering what the harm would be if he was the 23rd man in the Euro 2012 squad. It never comes down to using that player in any case. Plus im not sure how long Erik will be out for.

I dont think he deserves to be the 23rd man, there are players who showed a lot more and have more experience that deserve to go witht the squad.

Willems is one for the future. EC 2012 is a bit to soon for him.

Officially now the youngest player at EC2012

8 months younger than the Ox from England, the only other 18 year old chosen in the final squads.

Isaksson btw the tallest player at 199 cm

Best purchase of Brans so far. We bought him for 600k, what is he worth now, 6 mil or something? Let's just hope Schaars sucks tonight, Willems deserves to play.

'the new Gio'

Then Schaken must be the new Jay Jay Okocha.

We'll see what happens next season, old friend

Judging a 17 year old LB on one of his first games played in Rotterdam. If he was at Feyenoord you would have been saying he was already world class and you know it.

Listen bro, we're not talking De Vrij, BMI or Van Haaren here. So don't throw in terms like world class in a thread like this ok?

But seriously, can't wait to see him flop.

He may flop at the EC, im not denying this but come WC 2014 he will be the best LB of his generation (Under 21), mark my words.

Seeing both BMI and Jetro knocking on the door of the NT for the LB spot makes me regret leaving Spartaan 20 I used to play in that spot for them.

Spartaan were always great in those days. Not following it now, so don't know how it is today, but shame you quit.

He would definitly have the potential to be worldclass

Good news, but he won't make that much difference. It was going quite well with Bouma on the left. I wonder or Advocaat chooses Derijck or Bouma as our LCV, since we held the nul a couple of times with Derijck.
