Bale’s injury record isnt good. Although he is a top player on his day…for me too many injuries.16th September 2020 at 4:19 pm #166213
Bale only just turned 31 Moos. That’s nothing these days. In footballing terms it does mate.Plus the injury record.16th September 2020 at 4:50 pm #16621516th September 2020 at 4:55 pm #166216
Agree Ed. I’d take the risk if I was spurs
Absolutely world class player when fully fit and I’d love to see him back in the pl16th September 2020 at 4:56 pm #16621716th September 2020 at 5:11 pm #166220
Chris Wilder, Sheffield United’s manager, has confirmed that the club have made an approach for a Premier League striker – but not Rhian Brewster.???16th September 2020 at 5:30 pm #166221
Ed-For the PL and considering his injury record,Id say yes,too old.For Serie A not,of course not.You can sign players of any age,but how they handle the rigourous demands of the PL,its the question.16th September 2020 at 8:41 pm #166235AnonymousInactive111 pts
In fairness Mav has been saying bale is too old and past it for the last 9 years!16th September 2020 at 9:18 pm #166236
Looks like bale is done.1 year loan deal. They will pay 15m euro towards wages.
Banjo has finally got his wish. Great to see him back in the pl. what a player16th September 2020 at 10:17 pm #166238MikusParticipant255 pts
Very much fits the bill for Levy – Spurs get to bring back a star player for the season and at a relatively cheap price compared to funding an outright transfer. How well it will work in practice remains to be seen, but a no brainer really.16th September 2020 at 10:26 pm #166240MightyMoosParticipant43 pts
Really Mukus why let him go in the first place only to have him returned for his twilight years though I admit still an excellent force for 1 more year before injuries start taking their toll. Don’t forget he falls under the injury prone list.17th September 2020 at 12:11 am #166242
Reguilon is a classy player,if I’m not mistaken was chosen the best left-back in Spain last season???17th September 2020 at 12:13 am #166243
As for Bale,its his injuries that are the worrying thing,otherwise a world class footballer.17th September 2020 at 6:56 am #166245
Bale is worth the gamble by Spurs imo despite his injuries for £250k pw and no transfer fee.
He will load the bullets for Kane and score goals himself providing he can stay fit and there’s no fee involved which reduces the risk for Spurs. Surprised United aren’t in for him given their problems in trying to sign Sancho.
Also it’s sad to see such a talent being an unused substitute or sitting in the stands at Real Madrid he rightly wants to play football somewhere in the next few years.
Potentially a very exciting addition to the PL.17th September 2020 at 7:09 am #166246
I agree Nine. We really should have given up on Sancho by now. It looks like Bale was considered as an alternative in the event Utd couldn’t get their main target. I think Utd are very wary of Bale-type signings now, though, after the whole Sanchez fiasco.
The fact Utd still haven’t made any serious move for a Sancho alternative suggests they still think they can get their man. Very concerning that we’re still chasing him so late in the window and with no real plan B.
It’s going to be one of those windows for Utd. There will be a realisation in the final few days that we’ve messed it up and we’ll sign someone cheaper for that position and announce a new contract for Pogba to try to cover up transfer window failings.17th September 2020 at 7:13 am #16624717th September 2020 at 7:37 am #166248
Still time to go in the window Ed. Really don’t think utd are done at all and I’m still fully confident about my Sancho prediction 😆
Still 3 weeks to go mate and I really think they would have been in for bake if Sancho wasn’t coming
As mikius says no brainier for me
Moos, spurs sold bale for 80k and he wanted to go to Madrid, a European giant so that’s why they let him go
He left on great terms aswell. I really hope spurs fans can get into see him in that stadium before his loan deal expires next season
Great to see him back.17th September 2020 at 7:41 am #166249
Ed, the report today in the Express backs up your thoughts on why United went shy on a deal for Bale.
“Madrid are desperate to get rid of the 31-year-old Welsh winger, and are willing to subsidise his wages.
They will reportedly pay half of his wages, £250,000-per-week, with Spurs picking up the tab for the remainder of his salary.
With no one-off payments due from Tottenham to Madrid, the loan will apparently set them back £20m for the year.
Manchester United had been linked with a move as an alternative to Jadon Sancho, but apparently refused to pay that much for a 31-year-old, citing the catastrophic finances involved in their signing of Alexis Sanchez as evidence against it. ”17th September 2020 at 8:44 am #166251steveosnakeeyeParticipant335 pts
Things looking up at the spuds? If they at get bale force and regulion won’t be to bad at all! They need creativity for me tho, could they do worse than Erickson back? Maybe more interested with the changes?
Also just seen they opened their “to do or die” sky bridge …. must admit does look good and a part of the stadium tour and they even want people to absail down next year
Amazing views of London and the stadium itself!
Nancy were the feck are you?
Urm earth to meekus, come in meekus 😁17th September 2020 at 9:00 am #166255
