Loved Rafa

No idea why AVB decided he didn’t want him
----------------------------------------------------------------------
He was getting on and had fitness issues.

He can hardly play 60mins towards the end of his spell with us.

Top player. What a deal too, 'Arry did wonders getting that over the line for £11m
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Harry had nothing to do with signing him iirc
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Must have had some involvement. VdV was supposed to go to Bayern the day before for like 20m.

Remember one of his interviews in the afternoon of DLD saying that it could happen and that he wants it to happen.

So it was on his radar at least...

Madrid denied that Bayern link.

Redknapp obviously said yes but it was levy who done the work.

Probably levy’s biggest coup and the reason now we leave most things late in the window

The one against Arsenal at The Lane, across the keeper into the corner. TBH for all the goals he scored, none were amazing.

I liked the one against Swansea. Come at him quickly on edge of the area but yea no worldies

best goal he scored for us was the breakaway goal at villa one year. think Bale paced them and then VDV caught up and hit one first time into bottom corner. beautiful goal

Harry didn’t have a clue we were signing VDV, it just happened.

Liverpool away.

Looped over the keeper from outside of the box into the far corner.

Set up a few great goals too. Got us back in the game when 2-0 down at Arsenal. The control and flick on to Bale to make it 2-1. Scored the pen to make it 2-2 (his freekick that got us the pen too). Pretty sure it was his freekick into the box that Kaboul flicked on to make it 2-3

He was brilliant in the CL too. Him and Crouch linking up time and time again to get us to the QF.

If only he was a few years younger.

Yes he did... There's an interview with him during the day of DLD. We announced the signing as the window closed
