    Perhaps.... but that’s the team we are and hence why Bergwijn is currently our best option as one of the wide players.

    I was hoping he could do what he did in AVBs free flowing team, basically get the ball to him
    on the right and he will cut inside on his left and stick it top bins.

    Well it still may pay off but at the moment maybe we are seeing why he could not play in the Madrid side.

    Should play tonight. Like anyone he needs a run of games, and to find his form and confidence. Will he be the player he was in his early 20s? Of course not. But technically he's still got it - can still smash the ball home. And he still has some pace. So I think we should be patient.

    It's not about this player or that player is about the best utilising as much as possible our finite resource of money.
    Gareth was a fantastic player.

    He’s looking like the player I was worried we would be getting.

    For most the minutes he’s played looks completely on the fringes, offering very little against sub par teams

    True, still looking rusty, but that header tonight was pure class. Exactly what you need on a wet winter's night in Stoke!

    Needs to starting taking players on and going looking for the ball. At the moment he just receives it and gives it

    Scored an important goal today. Would be nice to see him in a more open game where we can stretch his legs again.

    I noticed that Cavani was scampering around the pitch today, pressing and sprinting and harrying and chasing and snapping at ankles at the start of the Everton v United game and also towards the end of the game, great energy and great attitude for an old fart...

    I don’t think he’s fast anymore, maybe still tricky though and with a lot of quality on the ball. Still looks pretty decisive too.

    Just looks done to me, despite the goal and one ball he was poor, looks like all pace has gone. Funny that Fletcher came on for Stoke and run around and gave us a hard time, not sure of his age but he must be 34? Like someone else says Cavani is tracking and getting involved but Bale is just not moving.

    Like someone said on here, a swing and a miss, we tried but its not worked

    We might actually want to wait to the end of the season till we say that.

    Sheffield United's Oliver Burke today equalled Bale's record of going 24 PL games without a win since his debut. Good thing we don't play them for another three weeks. He might actually break it.

    We are only paying 200k a week aren’t we? So can’t see that having much of a dent in the combined wages of those 2! Unless the 2nd year, if we took the option it would mean an increase in our contribution as it would have meant proving his worth?
    This season probably is last chance saloon for Bale in a top European league though, MLS or China would be the likely destination if things don’t work out here.
