Gareth Bale

Are we witnessing a paradigm shift, speed over talent and skills?

The Vision- Spotting your teammate’s run put that perfect ball in for him…Spot a gap between two defenders enough for you to pass, go for it. Goalkeeper is out of position or not covering a corner, go for that cracker… The vision makes the player…Speed and skills he’s born with, like everyone! Companies like Stats […]

Are Liverpool a one Mané team?

It’s a familiar refrain heard in football conversations around the world – ‘you’re just a one-man team!’ Ironically football is a team sport played between two teams of eleven players with a spherical ball made out of leather, enjoyed by millions, made in England, but transcends gender, race, religion and locality. Football is arguably the […]

Euro Roundup

As the English Premier League stepped aside to allow the magic of the FA Cup its rightful attention, the top European leagues didn’t hang around. Juventus took a seven point lead over nearest challengers Roma with a 4-1 victory as Higuain scored his 19th league goal, while Dybala banged in an unstoppable free kick before […]

Should Manchester United, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur sell their stars?

He’s leaving, he’s not leaving; he wants to go, he doesn’t want to go; will they, won’t they? – as is the case every year, this year’s transfer window has its share of uncertainty and late surge in excitement with the season kicking off in less than a week. Here’s a look at the three […]

It’s Time Levy Backed AVB

Let’s face it. Daniel Levy’s stubbornness in the transfer market in the last 11 months have cost Spurs dearly. Champions League football is yet another year away from White Hart Lane aswell as the daunting possibility of Gareth Bale’s inevitable departure being a year earlier. Daniel Levy haggling during transfer negotiations are world-renowned and has garnered […]

The cars Manchester United, Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur and Barcelona stars drive

It’s no secret that the lads in the top flight of football are earning an absolute fortune, but once they have finished buying women, houses with swimming pools, pedicures for their wives’ Chihuahuas and more women, believe it or not, but they often still have enough left over for some pretty fancy cars. British used […]

Tottenham Hotspur fans should allow Bale to leave with their blessing

For all of this season, when people have talked about the fortunes of Tottenham Hotspur, most of the discussion about whether Tottenham are that wonderfully illogical beast, a ‘one man team’. How a group of eleven players can be bracketed as being solely dependent on one player is a thought capable of twisting your mind […]

PFA Player of the Year – who would have your vote?

PFA Player of the Year As a Spurs fan, obviously I am biased when it comes to who I think deserves Player of the Year. I’m as biased as a parent on sports day, or a member of the FIFA committee deciding which country to give a World Cup to who’s just been handed a […]

Tottenham Hotspur’s sinning saint

Colin Randall writes: Salut! Sunderland has always felt perfectly entitled to stick its nose into other people’s business. We’re Sunderland supporters but also have views on football generally, whether it’s Pete Sixsmith at one of his non-league excursions or Ken Gambles demanding compulsory wearing of pink mittens by shirtpullers and goggles by divers of all teams. […]

Gareth Bale – The ego has crash landed

It seems almost every time Gareth Bale plays I have to attempt to rationalise all the controversy over his alleged diving. He’s been booked five times this season, only of which three of those occasions were for simulation – although it remains ambiguous whether his aim was to cheat or perhaps simply negate a foul […]

VIDEO – They’ve got history… Adam vs Bale

Having pulled out of the Great Britain Olympic team with a back injury, Gareth Bale upset a few people when he showed up in a Tottenham Hotspur pre-season game before any Olympic football had even been played. He scored in Spurs’ 1-1 draw with LA Galaxy and played 75 minutes. Bale then started Spurs’ game […]

Gareth Bale’s Team GB Mistake

Same ol’, same ol’. Gareth Bale scores a goal for Tottenham Hotspur in a pre-season run out against LA Galaxy and celebrates with his beyond camp heart shaped fingers. No big deal, right? Wrong. As Bale outjumped Omar González to head home a Gylfi Sigurdsson’s cross, thoughts drifted to the back and hip injury that […]
