History has taught us two things.
1. Do not invade Russia in winter.
2. Trying to get a song for a player actually onto the terraces is more fun than the above but as about as easy.

Me and me mum and me dad and me gran we all love van dar vaart,
Me and mum and me dad and me gran have taken ‘im to our heart.
Van der vaart van der vaart van der vaart – Van der vaart la lal
Van der vaart van der vaart van der vaart – Van der vaart la la
Van der vaart van der vaart and we all love – Van der vaart
Were going to score one more than you – – Tottenham!
A chap by the name of Jon Fisher cooked up this little ditty that appeared on 606; to the tune of the old Addams Family theme…

He’s better than Chris Waddle,
His Mrs is a model,
He’s Rafael Van Der Vaart!
Right, over to you…
