Vertonghen has been linked with a number of clubs since the end of the Premier League season, with reports claiming he would seek to leave if Tim Sherwood had been retained as manager.

With Sherwood gone, Vertonghen hinted he would wait for a new manager to be appointed before deciding on his future - he played under favourite for the job Frank de Boer at Ajax - but that no longer appears to be the case.

"I've got a couple more years at Tottenham and I'm happy, and I want to stay there, so it doesn't matter who the manager will be," Vertonghen said.

"He (de Boer) is a good manager but there are other good managers as well so, again, the chairman will make a good decision."

Vertonghen could put himself in the shop window with decent performances for Belgium at the World Cup, but he does not feel that will make any difference to his future.

"I don't think that is one for us because we all play for nice teams already and we just want to do something nice for Belgium, not for ourselves," he added.

his isn't directed at Van Gaal in particular, but, let's be honest, you don't have to be a tactical genius to beat Arsenal at the moment do you? I will say one thing...he put Van Persie on Monreal deliberately? Our Robin hardly had a touch did he? So did that really work? Hmmm....I'd stick to substituting Keepers (yes,yes, it was directed towards him in the end....)

hat a load of Bull***t. DiMaria hardly had a kick and they won because of a dodgy offside and a breakaway goal when Arsenal were chasing. Good luck to them they got their points but to try and claim this as some sort of tactical masterstroke is laughable, It was luck pure and simple.

Equating Rodgers To Hodgson. Oh Dear Me.

It's a Mailbox many will have been waiting. Brendan Rodgers gets a little bit of a stick, but there is at least praise for Manchester United,Van Gaal, Palace and Tottenham...

Oh Arsenal. Why Oh Why Oh Effing Why?

We have plenty of fallout from Arsenal's latest display of outrageous incompetence, plus the question of why every team seems to be getting worse. Plus, another Garcia ghost goal...
