Solid first season at PSV. Hardly to blame for the majority of the goals and has come up with some vital saves at times. I also am a fan of his ball distribution.
Tyton (N/A) Too harsh to give him a rating due to the lack of games he played this season. Too good be a no.2 so will surely get sold this summer.
RB - Arias (7)
One of our best players this season. Struggled to adapt in the early months of the season but has been very reliable especially after the winter break.
RB - Brenet (5.5) Had an okay first season. Physically he has some good qualities and with some added experience I think he can become a good squad player.
RCB - Bruma (6) A good addition to the squad. A real no-nonsense defender who I expect to be even better next season.
RCB - Zanka (1) Terrible. Complains when he dosen’t play, makes schoolboy errors when he does play and gets into arguments at training. Sell him please.
LCB - Rekik (5.5) I really don’t know what to think of him a lot of the time. Very hot and cold for me but that may be down to his lack of experience. Should focus on the basics more rather than trying to do the spectacular stuff. Indifferent as to whether we should extend his loan/try to buy him.
LCB - Hendrix (6) Very impressive first season/ surprise of the season. I didn’t think he would play so much but he has proved capable at playing CB, CDM and LB. Great distributor of the ball, works really hard and will only get better with experience (and size).
LB - Willems (5.5) The curious case of Jetro Willems. Sometimes he is great, sometimes he is NAC level. Holds onto the ball too long (or is too complacent) in attack and despite scoring 4 goals he should be getting more assists (only 3).
LB - Tamata (N/A) Not going to be an A squad member next season. Even Brenet was once second choice LB despite being a RB by trade.
CDM - Schaars (6) Started off the season really well but got worse as the season went on. His experience no doubt helps and he’s capable of a wonder ball every now and then. Solid first team player.
CDM - Hiljemark (5.5) His aggression/enthusiasm has been really great in most games but really needs to improve his attacking qualities in order to be a regular first team player consistently.
CAM - Maher (2) Flop of the season. I could write a book on him this season but I prefer not to.
CAM - Wijnaldum (N/A) Injured for most of the season. Could have contributed a lot with goals/assists if he wasn’t. Next season will be a defining one for him.
CAM - Park (7)
Our best midfield player this season. His professionalism, energy and experience really shone through yet again. He may retire this summer though.
RW - Ruiz (4) Wasn’t worth the loan deal. Scored 5 goals but that’s not really value for money. Is really static off the ball and hardly does any defending. Looks to have lost his hunger/touch since joining Fulham.
RW – Narsingh (3) Unfortunately a terrible season for him especially with it being a WC year. Missed quite a few games due to major knee surgery he had last season and when he is on the pitch he still physically dosen’t seem like the same player he once was. 0 goals and 1 assist – really does tell the story.
RW - Jozefzoon (5.5) The surprise signing of last summer. Everyone thought he would be crap but he actually was quite decent when he got a chance to play in the Eredivisie and EL. Would like to see him given more game time next season.
ST - Matavz (3) Maybe a bit harsh to give him a ranking due to limited player time but come on – only 2 goals for a PSV striker – you’re joking right? A good player in general but just dosen’t fit into the PSV system and should be sold this summer.
ST - Locadia (6.5)
A solid season for him. The first season that something was expected of him and although he didn’t start the campaign as first choice he quickly became just that and scored 13 goals to become this seasons top scorer. Needs another striker to put some pressure on his spot/ that he could learn a bit of – something Matavz didn’t do.
LW - Memphis (6.5)
Maybe I’ve got too much expectations of the boy. Tries very hard, there is no doubting that, and has bundles of talent but even though he scored 12 goals and got the most assists (7) he really needs to be more efficient. How many times has he been in around the box and you just thought if he had done blah blah blah we would have scored!
LW - Bakkali (N/A) Unfair to give him a rating. Obviously has talent and I don’t understand why he wasn’t given more game time this season. Maybe should focus on the RW position for next season instead of the LW.
