Robbie to the Vancouver Whitecaps (yes, they're a real football club) is probably our favourite football rumour ever, and we would be over the moon were it to ever happen, if only for the pure hilarity of it. The link apparently is hat Whitecaps CEO Paul Barber used to work with Spurs, and co-owner Steve Nash is also a proud Spurs fans. There are still people who are wishing for the move, and here's a small sample of the love Robbie would receive were he ever to go to BC. This

Further amazing quotes:
Robbie Keane is a fighter. He takes no prisoners on a football field. He's not interested in making friends - his sole focus is on getting the job done and winning the battle. His aggressive attitude is infectious and makes him a hit with the fans.
Keane is a fearless competitor who believes his should be the first name on the team sheet. As a result, his abortive 'dream move' to Liverpool was doomed to failure. He never bought into the policy of squad rotation and frustration got the better of him.
