Bale is a 2-3 trick pony at best .. it's just that he has 2-3 very good tricks i.e. great driving at defenders, able to dribble past and unleashes a deadly shot.

And aren't they the three key attributes of an exceptional player?  What extra capabilities do you think he needs to add to his game?

Re: The General Footy Thread

Biting and racist.

Re: The General Footy Thread

I think ol' Dermy got over-excited and made a mess in his pants with his earlier post.

Bless.

Flaresy was citing Bale as the next Henry ... who had extra capabilities and then some.

Remember when mongs were calling Ronaldo a one trick pony? I bet you do. He went on to be shit.

Thing is not many British players have gone abroad and made a success of it.

Perhaps Lineker (not really) and sort of Mcmanaman, who else?

John Charles. Legend.

Re: The General Footy Thread

£85 million for Bale?

Why they haven't accepted that yet is beyond me.

Not sure if Real Madrid will come back with a bigger offer than that.

The point remains the same though, Spurs are a two bob selling club.

They will.

Who isn't other than those bank rolled by sugar daddy's? we just happen to have splendid players that everyone else wants.  Not many clubs could cope with losing Modric, VDV and Bale in one year and still be challenging top four.

Still the case mate, but who would turn down £100m for a player? no one.  The stance this summer has always been that he is not for sale.

Going to be interesting to see if the chairman holds firm or just can't say no.

Just ignore me then mate, no problem at all.  You don't have to read and listen to what i post if you don't want to.

I won't lose any sleep over it!

Re: The General Footy Thread

You're kind of posting it on a public forum in the general football thread. You know? For people to read and take note.

I do and you're wrong. Always.

Re: The General Footy Thread

LOL. Who the fuck would they scream 'Chink' at?

Only geordies would be thick enough to be shouting Chink at Park Ji Sung or Shhinji Kagawa.

BedRob voted out. He isn't a racist. But he IS a thicket.
