All go, eh? Gareth Bale has a couple of good games and you’d think they’d discovered some lad as good as Lionel Messi playing for Peterborough United. The whole situation is ridiculous, but then we live in an age where fast food isn’t quick enough and if you lose half a dozen games, well you’re toast or at least as popular as those naffing awful breakfast biscuit things they’ve brought out.
Bale’s not world class. But he is an extraordinary talent who, if he stays at Spurs will almost certainly realise his potential. Perhaps then he might want to weigh up his options. Right now if he moved he’d be charting the same course to Notquiteland that Berbatov and Modric made before him.
John Hartson has advised Bale to get himself off to Real Madrid. Unsurprising advice from a man who’s own career got as close to Spain as drinking San Miguel, sitting on a wall outside Luton job centre . Once terminally ill, now terminally dull. Ian Rush, who was an outstanding footballer has suggested Bale stay put. I hear that Keith Harris and Orville are being interviewed as we speak and their advice will be in next week’s Woman’s Own magazine.
Bale’s a contract until 2016 or something, so until he goes on strike we’ll be fine until then. Probably.
Defoe has got himself in a muddle with da laydees again. When we don’t know. The tale of two scrubbers having it away with a reported £200,000 worth of jewels and clothes from a party at his mansion is being spun all over the web but nobody’s bothered to share when it took place. It is alleged that death threats were made, not by Defoe by some 18 year old trying to retrieve the bling and tings. Nice.
On an upbeat note, that Holtby’s good stuff. Every interview so far has echoed the enthusiasm he’s shown on the pitch. He needs to be well looked after that lad. He’s a bright future ahead of him.
I played in the Europa League last season with Schalke. We went to the quarter-finals. But Tottenham are able to do big things, I’m not saying that if we don’t get the Cup we’ll be disappointed, but I think we have the team and squad to get that trophy and we’re confident.
