How Long Can Spurs Keep Gareth Bale?

It’s some years since I’ve seen a more outstanding British footballer, as Gareth Bale. Last night, he helped to bring Spurs a victory at West Ham, and even stored the winning goal. The match and Bale’s influence on it is reported here on the BBC.

But then how long can the real money-bags clubs of the world, let this situation continue, before they make the player and Spurs an offer they can’t refuse?

I doubt, he’ll be playing for the club next year! But it will be the biggest transfer fee of recent times.

So just how good is Bale?

Although, I have a history of being a Spurs supporter until the 1970s and saw the great double side, I’m much more of an Ipswich supporter these days, as I have lived in the county for forty years.

But now, as I have Sky through my BT broadband, I generally make sure, that I see Spurs if I can.  Partly because of my history, but also to see what sort of fireworks Bale will produce.

He has certainly delivered in recent weeks.

No other footballer has had such an effect on me.  Let’s hope that kids these days, want to be the next Gareth Bale, as his style of play is very exciting.

He seems to combine the skill and thinking of a Blanchflower or a Beckham, with the speed of Cliff Jones and the power and ball skills of a Gascoigne or Puskas.

Let’s hope he behaves off the field like Bobby Moore, Bobby Charlton, Trevor Brooking or Gary Lineker.
