Bale. Could we? Would we? Should we?

    Strange that he started that game on the left... Switched to the right later on and the difference was there to see. Didn't look too bad on the left as a straight up winger tho.

    It is the key to the whole deal IMO. Bale wants to enjoy his career again, and has told Barnett to sort it.

    I love Bale, he is the only reason I was interested in La Liga. Having him back feels like he has come home, a bit like Teddy when he came back from Utd. I haven’t been as excited for a transfer for a very long time.

    I was stood behind the goal at Uptown Park when Bale scored that last Minute screamer - the guy is a Spurs Legend in my eyes, best player we have had since Ghod.

    I think what Finney said is bang on. Barnett gets what his client wants. Bale wanted to come back to us. Man U were in contact and Bale stated he wanted to come back to us. That is the end for Utd. No competition. So Barnett clearly -clearly- wanted to make absolutely sure that neither us or RM fudged this up.

    Allow me.

    I am 53.
    My finger is hovering over the vaporknit yellow third shirt, which will be ordered with Bale's name on the back the second it is confirmed.
    I will wear it with pride and most people won't give a fudge.
    But I will.
    He has come back.
    He said he loved us and he is coming back.
    I believe it. I don't want all the details, just the ones which help me navigate this outrageously fudged up time in our lives. And for so many reasons, Gareth Bale coming back will make me happier.
    It matters mate because Tottenham are our lifeblood. Yes, of course family and what-not, but how many decades has this club been in our hearts and minds? Don't go too deep into that, because let's face it, doesn't matter.

    It is irrational, nonsensical even, but it is beautiful and I am beyond happy that I get to feel this way!

    You would be amazed just what a fillip this could be for the club. The 'buzz' as they say could be immense. My hope is that it creates a bit more belief, because that has been the missing piece in the jig saw since the 80's in my view.

    If he signs a one year loan, does that mean we have to go through all this again next year? Hopefully there'll be an option to extend all going well.... I can't take the suspense

    Has it happened? Not being flippant, just being a Tottenham fan for 40+ years I can’t get optimistic!

    I think all the final, tiny details will be ironed out today. I expect Reguilon to be announced today and Bale announced tomorrow. Friday feels. Milk the good vibes.

    Truthfully, it is the one move we had left which could make me actually move forward as opposed to grudgingly trudge forward without looking back and wondering what might've been...

    Think about the options!

    Lloris

    Doherty
    Toby
    Dier
    Reguilon

    Sissoko Hojberg LoCelso

    Bale Kane Son

    subs: Hart, NDombele, Davies, Bergwijn, Lucas, Lamela, Tanganga

    I mean, you can pick many options (I'd love to see NDombele make it) and I have Sissoko in there just so as we can sing "wake me up before you go go we've got Bale and we've got Sissoko" but in all seriousness, take your pick. Winks doesn't even get on the bench here, and you know he will. Ditto Davo.

    I think the biggest loser here will be Dele sadly...but alas, he has to step up.

    My one sad feeling about this whole thing is we couldn't get Bale in while we still had Poch as manager. Guess that's the lure of Mourinho.

    Yes, but it is what it is and I am just over-joyed he is coming home. I think Levy knew he had to do this or he was done!!!!

    Unfortunately he's currently recovering from a small knee injury... But he's totally worth the 20m a season! I don't care what anyone says.

    Levy loves a Friday announcement.

    Sounds like the deal is we pay 300k a week for the season, 12m total. No loan fees.
