What's odd is that when has played the past couple of times, the yahoo stats show him as being the most effective midfielder (in way of passes, tackles etc) - explain that if you can! I didn't see last nights game buit was listening to it on MW in the car and didn't realise he was on the pitch until about 10 mins before half time.

maybe Jenas has gandalf's cloak of invisibility - or he has stealth technology - or he's a chameleon and morphs into Modric/Palacios - or he knows someone at yahoo and they fix the stats for him ;-)!
I bl**dy hate stats John.......never read anything into them!
Last week whilst watching the Shaktar game...on 33 minutes the comentator said soemthing akin to 'and Jenas plays a poor pass'...I hadnt even realised he was on the pitch!
I know he has some allies amongst spurs fans and he obviously isnt completely hopeless but.........he has NO potential to be anything else than what he is.......a lightweight with the odd nice touch. There are loads of them about....Id rather see a better player wearing his shirt. He will never deliver what we require week in week out so why persevere?

i've been saying the same all season jenas is vastly overrated anyone else like me that went will of seen another lacklustre performance from jj he played 85 mins as centre back if he is our attacking midfielder y the hell is he in the back four woodgate is a better passer so why is he taking it off him to give the ball away thought wilsons workrate and wanting of the ball was first class this boy looks the real deal get mod in centre and play lennon and bos on wings interchanging
...lies, damn lies and statistics....
I wasn't defending him - at the end of last season I did, as I honestly thought he'd turned the corner and had a succession of good games. But this season (IMHO) he seems to have dropped back again.
Personally, I'd rather see 'The Hudd' given a run of games. I think his vision and distribution is way beyond Jenas and with Palacios alongside, we may end up with another Perryman/Hoddle style partnership.
