When the PFA Team of the Year was announced, there seemed to be outrage that Tottenham’s Toby Alderweireld was not included.

Ahead of the game at White Hart Lane this weekend, we’ve had to listen to Thierry Henry say that only Alexis Sanchez would get into the Tottenham team, and Koscielny has been excluded from the joint XI’s that some ‘journalists’ are compiling.


I thought I’d look at some stats to see just how much better than Koscielny Alderweireld has been.

Guess what I found?

That’s right – he HASN’T been better than Kos, in fact, Kos has whipped his ass in just about every defensive metric going – and that’s despite being part of a defence consisting of three-legged puppies on acid.

That’s right. Better.

Surprised? You shouldn’t be.

All Tottenham have to do is not be s**t and they’re hailed as world beaters.
