Been looking into this one and I will be having a flutter on Rafael Van der Vaart to win the Premiership player of the season. I know it’s early days but that’s why I think I will get in early before his odds drop even more than they already have. I saw one bookies  had him at 33/1 before the Villa game and a couple at 25/1 but now I have seen some as short as 17/2.

This guy was top scorer three seasons running for Hamburg and now the Premiership is going to find out what he is all about, just ask Aston Villa. On betfair he has gone down to 9/1 to win the PFA player of the season which puts him as one of  the favourites.



Injury permitting there is no doubt in my mind that he will make the shortlist, I am not jumping on the bandwagon because he is a Spurs player and scored a few goals, I have watched this guy since he came on to the scene at Ajax and have always thought he was impressive. I always hoped to see him in a Spurs shirt but never in my wildest dreams thought it would happen, I was expecting to see him go to one of the other top four if he ever came to England. It always bewildered me why a top European club never took a chance on him sooner, he had all the raw ingredients to be a top player from such a young age.

So our newest recruit and our iconic Dutchman is my tip to win the PFA player of the year award so if any of you like a small gamble like I do then he is my tip. Drogba will push him all the way, with Rooney yet to hit top form and Gerrard in a relegation battle there might be a few surprises in the nominations this season. The voting is made in January I believe so if he can carry his form for a few more months then he has it in the bag.

  1. couldnt agree more,and what about bale for young player

  2. Bale is nailed on favourite. 5/4 or 97/100. take your pick!

  3. the man is a gem of a player, surely in the current market worth closer to 20mill. on another note can anybody answer what has happened to krancjar?????? the man is surely worth more of a run than he has been getting!!! and is corluka injured or just beign dropped as well, honestly think he is a better defender than hutton and would suit us better with van der vaart or lennon, give them more license to attack?????

  4. I have to admit that when we signed him for £8 Mill, I thought there must be something wrong with him. Two hours before the deadline? They don’t want him to have a medical do they?

    Now I think that there is probably a warrant out for Levy’s arrest for grand larceny next time he sets foot in Spain

  5. Van der Vaart has made the difference and is also lifting the players around him to believe in themselves.
    The squad is performing well with so many injuries, the way City played on Sunday I think we can still maintain top 4. Be good to see some young hopefuls given a chance to prove themselves.
