    Lovely goal. Not a picture perfect overhead kick in the champions league final though is it! ;-)

    I do laugh at our fans someday ...

    - If it was possible to get Bale, the answer is always yes .. he's is one the 2nd tier players in the world (behind two that most people could guess)
    - He doesn't need to be fit for 60 games a season, we smash brick clubs, he would be prioritized for top 6, CL and cup SF & Finals
    - Where he would play? depends on who, you could put him, Kane & Son up front (4-3-3) or just him & Kane. I'd say you could play back 4, +2 DMs, Dele & Eriksen creating, Kane & Bale up ...

    His wages are beyond us however, so just a moot point ..

    I honestly believe Modric would take the whole team up a level in the area where we lack any top top players. He would give us the call retention of dembele but the ability to release a pass like Eriksen-sen-sen and he’s not shy in the tackle either. He played in a 2 with Thudd so you could partner him with anyone and I’d honestly expect him to be fit for more games than Bale over the same period. I think he could play at least 3 more years at the top level. With regard to Winks, if he is to become first choice his development will be aided by competing, playing and training with a superior player as opposed to just get matches by default as everyone else is injured.
    Realistically I hope we bring someone in like Modric who can play or keep the ball rather than a blunt instrument who’s game is based on power.

    I'd rather have Modric. An injury free Bale on the other hand...but I doubt that exists.

    It would be rude to choose. Let's have both.
