José Mourinho got 24-minutes out of Gareth Bale last night, who replaced Erik Lamela in our Europa League game against Wolfsberger. A pretty dramatic cameo ensued and the calls for Bale to start every game here-on were inevitable. Frankly, I’m happy that Bale managed to turn it on last night, but am more concerned about making actions that count in ‘real’ games like our ailing Premier League campaign and the 90-minutes of potential humiliation against Manchester City.
