Done really well since leaving us, runs a multitude of jobs, and is a Jack of all trades
Took the trouble to tea at the Ritz, Ricky was on the front door and ushered us in
Took our coats in the cloakroom
And feck me who served our sandwiches and scones with a flourish
Served me pie and mash before Chelsea home
Was behind the bar in the Carpenters after same game
Was seen at the darts as part of a village people tribute band
Topped up my oyster in a little shop in E6
Attended for green flag when my car ****ed up on the A10
And on the train on the way home pops up in the buffet car doing tricks and sleight of hand keeping the punters amused
Brady's butler an all according to EX
A multi talented man and not to be underestimated is Ricky 8-)

He is indeed. He drove my other half to the railways station in a taxi the other day and the same evening, delivered pizza's to our door as well

Vaz sure is helpful if you are in a tight spot.

We got him for a bargain and I thought it was a shame when he left. Decent player.

Anyway, another fan here. Love(d) the guy, thought he was class. Not quite as good but the Trevor Sinclair of WHU at the time.

I remember that time he was on Soccer AM with Matt Taylor.

"So Matt, you were raised in Oxford to an architect father and teacher mother.....whilst Riccardo, you escaped war torn Guinea in a container ship with bombs falling all around you"


You are right, Vaz was a good player. Not in the Sinclair class, very few are. But I liked him, and in our promotion season he scored for fun. His experience as a kid must have put he pressures of playing football for £30k a week into perspective. Another big plus was that he got the tube into the game a couple of times, a mate of mine bumped into him on the district line, which kinda says a lot about Vaz's character.

The bloke was a 24 carat legend tbf

It has been said many times that he didn't make the most of his career, simply because he was too nice

I thought he was great.

Unfortunately I think he was too good for the Championship but not quite good enough for the Premier League.

Still, I'm very grateful for what he did for the club and the cherished memories he gave us.
