Nice to see him getting a run now that he's healthy. The player we're witnessing now would most likely be at a bigger club (no disrespect to Spurs) by now if it wasn't for his injury record & subsequent lack of opportunity. Needless to say, he's taken his chance. Made Maicon look like a Sunday league fullback!

Yeah, he's been moulded into more of a left winger now, but his ability to slot in at left back gives Spurs a great balance both offensively & defensively down that left side. Whenever Assou-Ekotto goes on the overlap, Bale can slot in to cover him. This Spurs team is playing with such confidence right now & it's great to watch. The signing of Van der Vaart & the emergence of Bale have really pushed them onto another level.

On a sidenote; one of my friends played against Gareth Bale at school level. He maintains that he taught Bale all he knows, but I'm not convinced..

Ideally I'd have a right footer on the right side, but I'd certainly kill for Bale in the England set up. Typical that we've had a big hole on the left side of midfield for decades & two Welsh players who'd have been absolutely perfect (first Giggs & now Bale) come along.
