The Gareth Bale to Spurs rumour comes into view again, and not in an authentic way, like Clint Eastwood as The Man With No Name moodily drawing on a cigarillo.

What we have here is Del Boy back from the pub clutching a bottle of fizzy vinegar, bellowing ta-daah!, prior to announcing his engagement to the estate’s Black Widow.

He’s Old

Even at 29 years of age, Bale is a good bet for any club in the world.

He’s Crocked

In actual fact, his injury record this season is better than out star man’s.

Gareth Bale appearances 2018/2019: 29
Harry Kane appearances 2018/2019: 28

Real Madrid Reject

The politics at Los Blancos are complex to put it mildly. There are numerous examples of Real fans’ cannibalistic nature and Gareth is simply the latest to be thrown into the cooking pot.

Based upon the points above, it’s a no brainer. However, you’ll note there’s no mention of Pochettino or money, yet.

Poch Pick?

Impossible to believe that Maurico picked Moussa Sissoko. It’s a good job we did get him, because there would have been nobody else. So it’s a near identical deal with Bale, one would imagine.

Is this how Poch would build a dynasty, or yet more firefighting from Levy?

Suspend Your Disbelief

I’ve left this one to last because it’s always left until last by the loons suggesting this deal.

‘All’ Gareth would have to do, ‘all’ would be take a 50% wage cut in order join on loan.

The loan fee at this stage is thought to be £23million or something. It’s frankly academic.


It strikes me that the sea lions championing this fairy tale are the same know it alls who bore us on a regular basis about Poch’s Project.

Bale to Spurs is quite frankly, anti-project.

If Poch walks, it would be a great stunt – that’s my verdict.

    Ain’t gonna happen. Bale to take a wage cut of that magnitude? Don’t see it. Not even sure I would want it. There are some terrific young players out there (like half the Ajax team for starters) I would rather have than Bale.

    This ain’t gonna happen- Bale take a wage cut of that order? Not a chance. I’m not sure I want it anyway. There are some terrific young players out there (like the Ajax team for starters) I would rather have than Bale.

    Every window, every year, someone somewhere creates a story as to how Bale is going to come back to Spurs.. Like a lot of fellow fans, i will believe a new signing when i see them photographed wearing the shirt, at the training ground. Until then !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
