Dutch midfield destroyer Nigel de Jong Mark van Bommel is this week’s theme.
He left a trail of bad fouls, late tackling and all round nastiness whilst helping Holland reach the World Cup final. What was most impressive was that he basically got away with most of it, only getting booked in the semi-final (for kicking the ball away of all things) and the final (where everyone got booked).
That said, he’s a very effective player though one who is hard to like if he doesn’t play for you (and that’s understating it somewhat!) . Anyway, as promised we have the one being held back from last week as well as a second one I came up with.
