    The Argentina pair
    World Cup winners the year they signed to a team coming back up from divisions 2
    That would be the equivalent of wolves signing Pogba and Lemar in 2018 at their peak the year they came up to the prem
    And for £700k IIRC

    If we're talking about local, national and worldwide impact, then surely nothing comes close to the media explosion caused by manager Burkinshaw's extraordinary Argentine coup. From the moment the news broke it seemed the whole country went crazy.

    I was at WHL for their Spurs debut, the opening game of the season against the previous season's champions, Nottingham Forest, and the tickertape welcome the Argentines received was quite unprecedented. I freely admit that, like probably every other fan that day, I allowed myself to get caught up in all the pre-match hype. My totally unrealistic assumption was, we'd play them off the park. :rolleyes:

    However the game itself, a 2-2 draw, soon bought us all right back down to earth with a bang. We might have known the Argentinians were going to take a while to adjust and the sad truth is that, despite the presence of Hoddle, Taylor and Perryman, the rest of the team were painfully ordinary journeymen.

    So I think we need to let that serve as a warning. It may well take some time for we see Bale and Reguilon make the sort of impact we're all hoping for.

    This is huge (Bale) immense and wonderful, but Ossie & Ricky were game-changers in the UK transfer world. A World Cup winner at ours? Huge beyond huge. Klinsmann was next IMO, and then Bale (albeit in context this feels as exciting as those)...

    So good, like Klinsmann and Sheringham, after going elsewhere to win trophies, we bought him come back. Shame we can't get Modric back, if he played to his full potential we'd be rocking!

    But I feel we can score goals, that isn't the real issue, it's the defense and winning meteorology we badly need.

    Praying trophies will come ...

    Agree and i do believe that is one of the main reasons we bought Jose in, now if he can not install that feeling into the players who have failed to show it so far then we are in trouble going forward.

    It's hard to say without seeing Bale play a game. If he's successful, scores bags of goals and gets us silverware, I think it'll be the greatest ever.
