      Top man. Nice vid of him doing the rounds comforting the ref from the Netherlands - Germany match as his mother recently passed.

      He's a classy guy and a superb footballer.

      I am one who believes VVD should be captain as he wants to be a winner.Also he scored a cracker of a goal in the international.
      Even if VVD weren't captain, Henderson shouldn't be. Henderson can't take good penalties and for me a captain should be able to do that. Henderson missed one in the world cup, nobody remembers because England still won. He also missed against Atletico Madrid. The ones he scored never convinced me he should take a penalty. I think if Van Dijk took a penalty he'd actually put a hole in the neck of the net

      Being able to take a good penalty means ability to perform under pressure. It's a good measuring stick. If you look at good captains, they are good penalty takers... just look at Gerrard and dare I say Kane and Shearer?

      A net is, intrinsically, full of holes Ribs.......

      Hence the saying “like catching water in a net” to denote something futile.

      Just saying 😘

      Didn't stevie miss a pen v portugal in the euros once ? By your logic iker casillas was a sh*t captain for spain, puyol for Barcelona etc because they didn't take pens. I am becoming more convinced you actually enjoy winding people up

      Gerrard was a good penalty taker most of the time, most good captains usually take good penalties with the exception of goalkeepers and defenders.

      flipping the bird at the goalie before taking the pen helps.

      VVD is as contagious as his hideous name suggests!!! I cannot express my admiration for this guy anymore than posting my first comment on this forum dedicated to the big man. I haven’t felt a signing have this much impact on our team or for myself personally in a long, long time! The debate on him being a worldie isn’t even fair on him...Crack any CB pairing in the world and he’d take either position...he’d walk straight in and improve it instantaneously...withou t ego and with full ethic....Top,top world class professional

      How many challenges did he win today against those two Orcs up front?

      The way he marshals the back 4 to win so many offside decisions.

      What a colossus, Johnny Cash could only dream of being as cool.

      Didn't think VVD had a MOTM game, but seems like a lot are talking up his performance! Will definitely re-watch and keep an eye out rather than concentrate on the midfield!

      If he could just add a little scoring to his toolbox he'd be the complete defender.
