Now I know a lot of people will be raving about Rafel Van der Vaart after the week he has had but is he already a God with us Spurs fans? Yesterday against Villa he won us the match, he was inspirational against FC Twente on Wednesday also. Van der Vaart has now scored in each of his three home matches for Spurs.

I followed this guy since he was at Ajax and I was hoping we would get him when he was in his early twenty’s but he rather surprisingly went to Hamburg. There is no doubt in my mind that Van der Vaart will be the signing of the season, when he was at Hamburg in Germany he was top scorer for his club three seasons in a row which goes to show the goal scoring ability he has, he also captained the German club which shows he is also a leader.

First time I saw this Rafael in action was when he was a youngster, I went on a stag weekend to Amsterdam and we went to an Ajax game and he was head and shoulders above the rest of the players on the pitch. I was shocked when no big European club took him off of Ajax, he would have been a great signing for Liverpool, United, Arsenal and Chelsea back then but nobody would gamble on him. Their cautiousness is now our gain, we have one of the best attacking midfielders in world football.

Van der Vaart is so good when it comes to reading the game, he gets himself in the right positions to create chances. His vision is second to none and along with that he nine times out of ten picks the right option for a pass, whether it be a simple pass or a final defence splitting pass. He has qualities that come instinctively, qualities that you can’t coach players. The last time Tottenham had a player who had a top top football brain was Teddy Sheringham and Van der Vaart isn’t too far off.

Tottenham have got a real bargain, £8 million wouldn’t even buy his right leg if I was his manager and why Real Madrid wanted to get rid of him especially at that price I will never know. Now he is at Tottenham I am sure he will become a hero and be adored by all the fans, there were a few skeptics who didn’t know much about him but I have never seen a player change the opinion of so many in such a short space of time. He will add the goals that we have been missing for years, he will be our Gerrard, Lampard and Scholes.

Let’s just hope we keep him fit, Van der Vaart loves playing football and we love watching him play. I hope he is loyal and doesn’t do a Berbatov on us, that is why I believe it is more important than ever that we finish in the top four again so we can hold on to players like Van der Vaart, Modric and Bale because I fear if we don’t , Man Utd and Chelsea will come knocking.

I would love to hear your thoughts on the the man himself Rafel Van der Vaart.

  1. my friend,i agree that spurs made a very good bargan on buying van der vart,its trough he have great skills,he knows the time and place to score or to creat for the others,but van der sar cannot play alone,its the whole team work doing success.no one can forget the dribbling aff bale,the affort of pav the improvmment of other players like huddleston jenas is also doing well ,the keeper like gomes.doing all those great saves.dont forget that when van der vart was sent off they still manage to score more goals even with 10 players.dont forget that spurs are in the champions leaque and and finishd 4th without him.

  2. real class always shines……..also brings out the worst in people so maybe vaart was a victim of
    professional jealousy at other clubs……….

    but hey ……what a player!……….gives the side added style and confidence……….

    shame regarding berbatov…………still think he should have stayed at spurs as he performed better with us than with Man u …..jumped ship a tad too early…….

  3. I too followed van der Vaart from when he started at Ajax,he has always had an eye for goal,when we was linked with him I was so sure we was going to get him,but he went to Hamburg,then scored a shed load of goals and was off to Madrid,never in all my time at the lane have I seen a player look so hungery for the ball.. He covers every blade of grass trying to win the ball,he’s got a rocket of a shot on him…and the way he took his 2nd goal was just pure world class what more can I say
    Rafael van der Vaart (LEGEND)!

  4. Totally agree the man is a dude and then some. You are right it is imperative we qualify for the CL again next season we must keep improving every year that is why are league form is so important, Harry and the lads need to stay extra focused. VDV legend in the making.

  5. I THINK THAT VAN DER VAART HAS TRANSFORM INTO A SPURS CULT HERO SINCE ARRIVING FROM REAL MADRID AS WELL AS BEING ABLE TO SCORE GOALS CAPABLE TO GEL WITH NEW TEAM-MATES & SET-UP COMBINATION WITH EITHER CROUCH OR PAVLYUCHENKO NOW I HOPE THAT HE CAN PERSUADE OTHER DUTCH PLAYERS LIKE RICKY VAN WOLFSWINKEL(UTRECHT),ELJERO ELIA(HAMBURG) & GREGORY VAN DER WIEL(AJAX) TO MOVE TO SPURS IN THE FUTURE.I LEARN THAT HE’S THE THIRD DUTCHMAN TO PLAY FOR SPURS AFTER JOHNNY METGOD & EDGAR DAVIDS.

  6. Feel tremendously happy after yesterdays game, just so much quality in the squad and so many options now to break teams down. We really do look the part, teams must be looking at us with fear. Compare our squad with Man U, Chelsea, Arsenal, City and Liverpool. I would take ours every time, we must cut out loosing to the silly teams, we must have a real chance at the title this year even though we havnt had the best of starts.

  7. what was the song sung about him late in the game yesterday in the park lane end?

  8. I agree with you mark. Even without VDV at inter milan im confident we can come with at least a draw and then when he plays when there at the lane well they should be scared no matter if they won the champions league last yea promotion

  9. ah i meant last year or promotion. epic fail
