Soldado will comfortably replace Bale goals. 2

Posted on August 26, 2013 by Tony

After just three games for his new club Roberto Soldado already has four goals to his name in a Tottenham shirt all in competitive fixtures, he has only trained with his new teammates for a matter of a couple of weeks and is already four goals ahead of Bale at the same stage of last season. Some will point to the fact that half have come from penalties but Gareth Bale has a record of one taken and one missed and he also had the benefit of taking every free kick even remotely within range last year.

Bale:the myth of the one man team. 0

Posted on August 24, 2013 by Tony

From Christmas onward last season Tottenham were commonly referred to as a one man team and as we all know that one man was Gareth Bale. He was of course a very important member of the team and finished the season as the clubs top goalscorer with twenty one premiership goals. Quite how and why this accusation was leveled at Tottenham is a bit of a mystery, probably one of the pundits on TV made a glib comment and it was taken onboard from there. Of course Gareth Bale did score a a few late goals to turn draws into wins, West Ham, Southampton and Sunderland were the games in question, that earned an extra six points but hardly constitutes a surprise or turns him into a one man team, Norwich, WBA and Everton all scored late goals against Tottenham early in the season costing seven points, Gareth Bale failed to score or assist in any of those fixtures but of course that does not make him a failure.

The Gareth Bale saga continues to rumble on as Tottenham supporters continue to be bemused by the entire affair. At the outset there was anger and a sense that the attempt to buy Bale was wishful thinking on the part of Madrid, that then turned to amusement as comical stories began to appear in Marca and were taken up by every British tabloid and media outlet, the amount needed to secure his services grew from £50m and rapidly passed the current record fee and seems set at somewhere in the region of £105m as we speak. United and PSG interest has come and gone at various intervals but it has always been all about Real Madrid as everybody associated with them have publicly courted the player.Apart from the occasional reference from AVB stressing that Bale belongs to Tottenham and they are counting on him for next season there has been precious little from the player or Daniel Levy, in actual fact there has been nothing.

Some Madrid players don’t want Bale! 2

For the past month or more player after player at Madrid has gone on record wanting, encouraging and talking up Gareth Bale in an attempt to turn his head and force a transfer to their club, they have followed the Perez and Zidane line, eventually it seemed that Bale also wanted it to happen and that it would just as soon as the money demanded was on the table. About a week or so ago the clubs supporters voted in huge numbers against spending more than 70m euros on Bale but instead continue to concentrate on their hero Ronaldo, even Ronaldo himself refused to sanction the need to sign Bale and since then both the new coach and more players have expressed their dissent on the issue.

The fantasy continues as more friends and international teammates spill the beans to the newspapers as to Gareth Bales thoughts on his hoped for transfer, the upcoming internationals provided newspapers, so called journalists and pundits the golden opportunity to modify old stories and stir up the current situation still further. Bale is apparently confused and upset that Tottenham have not yet agreed to sell him to Real Madrid , so much so that he has confided in his Welsh teammates that he will never wear the Tottenham shirt again.Next we shall hear that he has not submitted a transfer request out of respect for the club, which we all know is complete rubbish.

Madrid attitude changing over Bale pursuit. 2

It certainly seems that some pressure has been lifted in the past week in relation to the pursuit of Gareth Bale, shortly after Madrid’s supporters polled 93% against the club spending more than 60/70m euros on Bale, rating him way behind their current hero Ronaldo, soonafter that Perez himself began to publicly doubt that he was worth that sort of fee, strange bearing in mind both he and Zidane had previously suggested money was no object in order to secure his services.

Are Madrid cooling Bale pursuit? 5

During an interview with ESPN Deporte Perez the Real Madrid President and one of the major instigators of the Gareth Bale pursuit had this to say:-

“Talking with ESPN Deportes TV, Perez appeared to send a message to Spurs that €100 million was too much for Bale, while simultaneously claiming never to speak about potential transfers out of respect to the other parties involved.


“We talk with lots of people and we will see what happens in all our negotiations, with this player [Bale] and with others,” Perez said. “We do not usually talk about other players out of respect to the player, the club and the president, with whom I made a good friendship last season during the signing of Luka Modric.

Rooney,Suarez and Bale transfer tactics. 1

With less than four weeks remaining of the summer transfer window three of the Premierships highest profile players futures are still to be decided. Many differing reports appear but most seem to suggest that all three players are angling for a transfer away from their existing clubs.

Each case seems to be following an almost identical pattern, rumour of interest from another club, primarily Chelsea, Arsenal and Real Madrid respectively, then the media frenzy begins and is continuously stoked up with the occasional remark or players and coaches of the interested clubs talking up the merits of the player involved. In each case their current clubs have been quite categoric and informed the press that none of the players are available for transfer, still the stories continue most of them without any substantial proof.

Always look on the bright side as Bale looks set to leave. 0

Say what you like but Gareth Bale’s transfer to Real Madrid is not about winning trophies, recent history tells us that they really don’t do much of that, it’s all about money and that is the real reason that he will not hand in a transfer request. I think most Tottenham supporters expected much more of Bale but he has shown himself to be no better than Modric or Berbatov. There is no doubt that he gave us some great moments but ultimately no trophies and no Champions League.
The size of the fee that Daniel Levy will screw from Madrid will be far far in excess of his true worth and much of that must be used to strengthen the squad and prepare for a winning season.
We shall miss his goals but “one swallow doesn’t make a summer “as they say and he might not have been as prolific again, he certainly brings nothing to the table when he is injured and there have been plenty of periods when that has been the case.
It would be a lie to say that most Tottenham supporters are gutted and angry in equal measure at the turn of events if this transfer does go ahead, whatever happens we must believe that Levy is making the best decision for Tottenham, he certainly lived up to his part of the bargain in buying the players needed to press on to better things, he told Bale and AVB that he would do so and has so far lived up to it.
Tottenham and their supporters and been here many times before, Klinsmann, Sherringham, Hoddle, Waddle, Gazza, Carrick, Berbatov, Modric and maybe now Bale, but we keep finding great players and will soon do so again, on this occasion the quality in the squad is far better than at any time previously and with a couple more new additions that £100m will comfortably fund, Tottenham will of course cope with his loss. AVB and the supporters will still believe that anything is possible this season, rather than having to cope and adapt to the ability of one man it will be a team in the real sense of the word.
In all honesty if Gareth Bale does leave, as seems highly likely at this moment, he will go with thanks for the enjoyment he provided but nothing more, as a Tottenham supporter I will feel betrayed and will forever believe that he has done wrong by us, he is in my mind leaving for the wrong reasons, had he remained I firmly believe that Tottenham would have won as much as Madrid, perhaps more. His argument that he has too much respect for Tottenham and their supporters to hand in a transfer request is embarrassing and a downright lie, it is to ensure he gets his cut of the fee.
Call it bitter and twisted or whatever you like but if he abandons this Tottenham project then thank you Gareth Bale for your well paid service too date, but as far as any merchandising carrying the “11 of hearts “ logo then no thanks.
