    Did he leave before the new training complex opened?

    It's what you get these days when you shop in the bargain basement loan market

    :D:D

    This is probably my favourite Bale goal for Spurs. You can see that two defenders - especially the one closest - are doing all they can to force him down the line on his right. They've clearly worked on it in training, whoever their manager was probably thought he was pretty clever. Everything about their shape is set to push Bale down the line.

    So he just puts it in the top corner anyway!

    I think he had a year at the new site. Finished in 2012, Gareth left in 2013

    Sure he mentioned in an interview that what you've said is the case.

    Still got it.

    Fascinating to think about how Mourinho will deploy him.

    I almost don't want him to be used too quickly, so he can destroy teams as we get into the latter stages of the cups. But we need CL football, so expect him to play a decent amount of league games.

    Seems logical that Bale and Kane will be quite fluid and interchangeable. Both can provide and score. And they will be hard to track. Add Son's energy into the mix and we should have one of the most potent attacks in world football. Yet it is all TBC. That's the excitement. Bale has to prove himself again. And we need to win something silver.

    I want Bale/Son/Kane to be used the correct amount i.e. if they are truly needed, fine to play them, but not flog them until they get injuries.
    There is a reason Lewis Hamilton doesn't drive to the track in his race car.
    We need those 3 available at peak performance for certain peak games.

    Not to forget we have Lamela, Bergwijn, Moura, Alli and Vinicius waiting in the wings. All potentially good enough to be starting 11, on form. Our attacking depth is now insane.

    Vinicius looks handy in this one too, nice interplay.

    Always amazes me the lack of actual defending in these videos though

    Yeah fair play, I was focusing more on the technique.

    My 7 year old used to have him in a ‘fantasy’ Spurs fifa team, so was delighted that he’s now ours in the latest version of the game (albeit he’s questioning his rating drop!)
