    Bale adds the goals.
    Modric adds the midfield tempo and control we've been lacking all season.
    Can you imagine Son, Alli, Bale and Kane being fed by Modric.
    Good luck defending that.

    As good as Modric is (and I fudging love him!) he has been showing his age this season.

    Do people really think he can do the business in the PL still?

    Agree he's not quite what he was this season but I'd still take him. I think he could do the Dembele role in that he wouldnt play ever week but participate in a good few games, possibly the big/more difficult ones and at the same time Winks would learn a shedload from him. I really think we wouldnt be in the dodgy position (in terms of top 4 qualification) we are now if Dembele was still here playing in the games that he could manage, I think we dropped the ball there.....

    I wonder if Winks would learn from him, or if Modric being here would impede Winks development.

    And in terms of that Dembele type role, honestly I think Id prefer an N'dombele type that is young and exciting compared to a fading master on a countdown.

    From Modrics point of view I would anticipate Serie A being much more appealling too.

    Bale is fudged now ZZ is back.

    I reckon he either digs in (Becks and McMananananaman style) and continues to pocket his £650k a week, or he waits for Man United to offload Sanchez and pay him a silly wage instead.

    They still have Martial as well.
    Bale will be OK at Real now.

    PS now just seen this (the daft buggers)

    He didn't confirm anything.. Liking the way a player goes about his business doesn't mean you're a supporter.

    Talking about Tottenham;
    "I loved the club, and I still do"
    Nothing else needs saying.

    Re; Henry and Bergkamp. How could you not love watching them?
    Shame about the shirt. But that's football.

    @Nigeyman - this story ended all those years ago, with a cruel, cold 'Sexo es Vida'.

    Could it begin again, six years on, with the very same words? :D

    Ha ha, more than likely my friend, guess those Marva readers are still inept in the sack, and gullible for lies.

    I think it was in response to the Madrid fans or media saying it first. He returned to fitness just in time to play for Wales which annoyed them, however he came out and said if there was a Madrid game last week he would also have been in contention again.

    Will be interesting to see now that he is fit if they start playing him again or if he remains on the fringes.

    Yeah, already heard them playing old clips of Mourinho saying how much he loves Bale.
    I wonder if Mourinho has any other ex-players he will be asking for in Jan?
