It is funny the way he says it. But, you can tell he's just taking the piss and looking for some exposure.

It's a wink to the entire country of Spain being up in arms after he said they were cack.

Van der Vaart is only 2 years older than Cristiano Ronaldo.

That is the only thing I can think of after watching this video.

It's literally like he says, ever since we bought Maguire there's hardly been a week of him analysing English football and not being genuinely perplexed at the fact that we paid a world record 80 million pounds for the guy :lol:

Has anyone ever personified Spurs quite like VDV?

A trendy pretty little player who could do some good things but more often than not disappoints.

It’s hard to disagree with him here.

He's not shit though is he?

It's just shit punditry for clicks.
He isn't. He's had a shambolic start to the season but he's a good player and was one of England's best players at the Euros, generally he's been a solid, reliable player for us since he joined. He just got made captain when he doesn't seem like captain material and his price tag was massively inflated, admittedly due to poor planning on our part, which has put a huge target on his back.

Those Dutch are succinct and often correct aren’t they?

Meh, it’s not Maguire’s fault at the end of the day, rather our ability for being taken for a ride.
Of course and I will never put it on a player, at least not seriously.

I like the fact that vdv can say his real opinion - even if it’s factually incorrect. Maguire is only just shit - not ‘really’ shit.

He is. I've questioned his ability 6 months after we signed him and saw replies like. He does Lindeloff's job which makes him exposed, He needs a better partner... And all that bs
The same defensive shit like Lukaku got when he was barely doing shit on the pitch when he wasn't scoring.

Maguires not crap though, it's just the usual sensationalist nonsense begging for likes, clicks and reactions masquerading as punditry.

The reason he cost more than VVD is because he played for a top four rival, whilst being English and in his prime, De Ligt played in Holland and VVD played for a bottom half club.

Not Maguires fault that United can't scout a similar level player (or buy Maguire just 2 years earlier) for less.

I Don’t think hes as bad as people make out but the bold part simply isn’t true.

he’s made a horrendous amount of errors that could’ve easily been avoided a fair few have lead to goals so solid and reliable he definitely hasn’t been.

Funny that some will use this to add weight to the opinion that Maguire is a rubbish defender, when in reality what does this clown know about defending.

He clearly has some weird obsession with Maguire, strange guy.

This isn't the first time he shat on him. When England played Netherlands he absolutelly destroyed him. I know some in here want to support Maguire cause he's a Utd player but lets be real he's just not good enough.
