Gareth Bale

I think that's the key divergence between myself and all the other posters. I don't expect him to be healthy for any meaningful period of time. I base this on his track record at Real, and now Spurs, but most of the people on the opposite side base it on hope and nostalgia.

Rather than expect, I'd say hope.
"All the other posters" you read minds too? I've said for some months he is on the way to China, can not stay fit and hope at most for a few match winning cameos and quite a few people agree. Prehaps you only read your own posts.

Have you? I didn't realise. I've seen a few people changing their tune over the recent months, but my experience has been to get 1 agee and 10 disagrees when I criticised Bale.

People accusing me of not being a real fan for not getting suckered in by the nostalgia. It got pretty fucking abusive tbh. So I may not have seen a lot of the posts that weren't hurling abuse at me.

Looking back, it was just me and Mick Cooper Mick Cooper getting tons of abuse.

Nah a few in here man. Mrs P Scott. Lots of folk have seen through it. It was good for morale and that's been about it. Say what you want about Levy unlike them mugs over in Woolwich we will not be long picking up thd bill, or lumbered for years.

I guess a few other posters spoke up a bit but it didn't devolve into the abusive pile up cos they're either respected poster like Ms P or whatever other reason. Only me and mick seemed to get called trolls, delusional and mentally ill.
 
Lol.

If any player carried us last year; it was Sissoko.

Bale wasn't signed to play week in, week out. Club probably expected 20-25 games from him and for him to make a big impact from the subs bench when we are chasing a goal.

lo Celso should be the heartbeat of our midfield and a bang on starter. He has missed a massive 104 days through injury (that number is expected to rise to 120 with his current injury). Bale has been out injured less than Lo Celso.
Sissoko was poor last year, you’re think 2 seasons ago.

The rest I can’t argue with.
 
Stage 2: ANGER

MARCA and Spanish journo’s are a bunch of xenophobic liars, I can’t believe that there are fans Who don’t respect his Tottenham legacy and never wanted him back. They are happy to see him fail!
 
I'm not half empty or half full. It's not clear, based on his last 2yrs, if he's gonna be good for us or not. The deal however is a good deal as it's a win/win for us to find out where he's at.
When people were whining at you about why you aren super duper excited in cumming mode over Bale, I guess you were right. Half a season almost and hes done fuck all.

He was injured until October.

He scored a winner against Brighton, a chance that Bergwyjin and Moura would have both missed.

Wonder if he'll be in José's plans for Marine? It was probably exactly what he was envisaging when he was welcomed home to Hotspur Way in the summer by throngs of lockdown breaking fans chanting his name.
 
Bale can still come good but the light on the wick is not flickering as brightly as when he arrived.

Mourinho will only keep quiet on him for so long if he continues to disappoint, injuries or not.

And even more so if we lose games.
 
Definitely not made the impact I'd hoped thus far. However, it's just a loan.

I still think he might have a big say in some big games. Want him around for the league cup final, even if it's just to take a free-kick late on as Kane sure as shit isn't scoring!

Yes, I'm looking forward to someone starting the humble pie thread, so all of the people posting the smarmy, piss taking and derogatory remarks can chip in with their heartfelt apologies.
Ah no, they will always be able to fall back on the free header he was given against Brighton to justify it all.

The saddest part is the fact that I wanted them all to be right, just as much as they did, I'm equally gutted that he isnt showing anything of the old Gareth.
Pointing out that he looks like a Gareth Bale lookalike but plays football like a Susan Boyle lookalike doesn't seem to sit too well with some people.

Maybe they didnt know she was so good in the air.....

Said so myself, but after the first bit of criticism a lot of people just lost all sense of proportion and the ability to read. The fairytale return of the prodigal son would have been amazing, so would winning a million pound lottery, but any sensible person knows that neither is very likely.

There won't be any apology or self-reflection from most of the abusive users either. Let's just hope he can at least contribute something against the likes Marine and Wolfsberger so it's not a total waste.

He's gonna score the winners in our three finals this season and earn us crucial points in the league.

Come at me!

Are you under the impression that I hope you are wrong?
I wouldn't/couldn't be more pleased - and I'll be going nuts with everyone else if he does it in even one of them.

None of my comments are the basis of a campaign against the guy, all I have done is passed my opinions of what I have seen of him in this incarnation of him in a Spurs shirt. All I have said is that to date, he has done nothing in match play to justify putting him back on the pitch.
If Alli cant buy a game, then based on his performances then neither should Bale, JM has to be consistent in his allocation of game time, particularly given his public statements about players having to play their way into the starting line up.
We cannot pick Bale on the basis of his performances back in 2012/13.
