If we really are selling Dempsey and maybe Sig as well, surely that means we will be bringing in another left inside attacking mid in such as Ljajic, Bernard or maybe even Alexis regardless of Bale staying or going....?

Also, I don't know where Bale thinks he will fit in to the team at RM? I think they will want to play him at LB. That's how crazy they are over there. Just shoe-horn them in any-old how.

Where else realistically would you see him fitting in to the team? I'm not so sure he would even be a first eleven player there. Maybe on the bench a lot like RatBoy.

He must be thinking about this musn't he?
The arguements over free kicks will be priceless with ronaldo.
Also when you add ronaldo wants to play through the middle this year if they want to put bale on the left great that's 80 million wasted

He'd go RF/RW or LF/LW and he'd start. Nailed on starter. Just imagine him in Spain. Fucking hell. He'd hardly be shot for wandering out position either.

JJ - have RM officially bid for Bale yet?
Is it close to what THFC wants?
Thanks...

Not sure Bale knows whats going on and trust me Madrid are yet to make an offer we would even begin to talk about .... figures banded about are grossly inflated, most of the players mentioned have not been offered either.​

If levy sold him for that money I think he would have no choice but to invest if either wise the fans would go wild! He would need a massive name just to save face!.

We also forget his injury record is not great
Just to clarify, I am not confident that we will sign any more players (if Gareth goes). The aforementioned players were just my ideas in terms of trying to repair the squad.
I am however concerned that if Levy does try to save face by placating AVB (and ultimately the fans as well), that AVB may elect to go with Hulk @ RWF (as opposed to someone like Griezmann/Lamela/Muniain).
Because I don't believe Hulk comes even remotely close to justifying his £50 million price tag or whatever it is ATM.

I honestly don't know if he is going

Think its possible either way ATM

1 thing I do know if he does go it better be a fucking head exploding deal

I think Mr Levy got away lightly with the poxy deal he got for Modric

Just give everyone a free role, no formation whatsoever. Like when 5 year olds play and they all bunch up together en masse.

Tired now, so am going to go to sleep. I want to get up early to see the job application Mystery has sent me! I want to fill it out straight away and return it quickly!

Nu-nites.

Especially if Townsend and/or TC go out on loan.

according to the Daily Star, CR is joining ManU for £80m - sponsored by GM, etc & this has been planned for the last 2 weeks

:cautious:

Well, I'm not saying it would be easy by any stretch of the imagination but Roma have failed to qualify for Europe completely again, he isn't on mahoosive wages and, however tenuous it might be, there is the Baldini connection. Couple that with an progressive young coach and ya never know.

I think Lamela could be far more gettable than Di Maria and I'd prefer him as well.

The only thing is Monaco are after him they'd blow us out of water financially & City are tracking him as well, to many rich clubs for us to compete for his signature along with 3rd party ownership & he doesn't qualify for work permit so special talent visa would have to be applied

Agreed, looks very quick too.

Shame if it has collapsed, but we are dealing with an inmate!

:giggle: Yeah, it sounds like that whole fam (the Becali brothers & cousins) are a thuggish bunch. LOL

So Bale leaving or not we will see. Think he is off. But heyho you never know.

Even more interesting what happens to the rest of the squad.

Hudd, Parker, Livermore, BAE, Townsend, Dempsey, Carroll, Sigurdsson, Gomes, (Naughton), Adebayor (Defoe?)

Holy!

Carroll on loan and DON'T sell Sig& Townsend, rest can go in my eyes. Defoe is a Tottenham yiddo as well. Keep him as party and atmosphere guy and bring him on after 60 minutes if we need a goal or two.

If he goes, aside from the extra quality players we will of course bring in, Im personally looking forward to watching our team play as a unit again ... Certainly for the last half of the season a lot of our players seem to lack confidence in their own ability to win matches without GB in the team, and when he was in the team, it seems a lot of them felt he was the only one who could get them out of trouble... quick give the ball to Bale, he'll make it alright ...This heavy reliance on him is not healthy for the development of the team in my opinion and IMO leads to if anything a lack of confidence in their own ability ..

Both will probably play behind the main striker & both can play as forwards...many options with both.

Didn't know about that. Monaco would be worrying. Which players aren't citeh after? They needed at least another century in League 1 to make up for their dickishness the last few yrs.

Anyways. Another day of will he won't he awaits tomoz...TTFN.

Are we to read anything into the fact that Coentrao will not play in Madrid's U.S. friendly tonight? Apparently he has some kind of vague muscle injury.

Either way its a win-win for Spurs. Levy won't settle on the cheap if we sell and if he stays, well our squad is the juice-------happy days!
