I was comparing playing style, not necessarily career/achievement. I happen to like Blind the DM. I think some of his moments are when he is deployed in midfield. Blind is disciplined, hardworking, intelligent and good at ball distribution. Leading with example. Very decent defensively even though he is not built like a tank. And yes, slow-footed at times and can be exposed. Certainly not a "generational" talent (like Frenkie de Jong) by any stretch of imagination, but every team needs a blue-collar, team player like him. And I think that's a fair comparison to Koopmeiners at this stage. Obviously Koopmeiners has a long runway ahead of him, and who knows, with more time and experience, Koopmeiners can someday eclipse Blind. We shall see. BTW, for all his limitations, Blind's longevity at Oranje NT is quite amazing, he has 80+ caps, already in the top 20 of most caps player!
