Would a fast striker have kept Bale at Spurs?


Well my article on passing verses pace certainly brought out an interesting discussion and the point made about the excitement of seeing Gareth Bale running at defences was certainly a good one. If we could find another Gareth Bale I don't think any of us would be complaining.

The 28-year-old (29 next July) Welshman reportedly turned down, as expected, a move to Manchester United this summer to stay in Spain at his dream club.

He was the best crosser of a ball on the run without breaking stride, crosses that were along the floor across the six-yard box too in Bale's case, that I can remember since QPR winger Dave Thomas I think it was.

We didn't have strikers on the end of enough of these crosses tough, had they got there or anticipated better then there were plenty of tap-ins to score. What if that had happened and Bale was creating all these goals for a striker, would he still have moved central?

He moved there because we lacked attacking option centrally. Had we had them bale may well have stayed on the wing and his prowess may not have been seen to it's full extent. If that were the case, would he still have got his dream move to Real Madrid?
