Gareth Bale’s return to Spurs was a long time coming, in fact, he’d hardly been gone any time at all before the rumours of the Welshman coming back first began. Now the 31-year-old is here, what does the future hold? I was told by someone after the West Ham game that Bale had fluffed his go on goal, which given it’s 46% xG probability is ambitious.
Watching Bale with Crouchy in the video above, it’s great as a Spurs fan to see him smiling again, and it confirms that he clearly didn’t just run away from Real Madrid, he came home, by his own volition. If that doesn’t warm your cockles, I feel sorry for you.
