Based upon a lengthy conversation I had with a fellow Yidologist, Mr Martin Crawford PLC …forget garlic bread. Here’s the future. Or at the very least a hopefully rather compelling argument for a good one.

One of the bugbears of the last campaign for lots and lots of people was the whole Gareth Bale free role fiasco. And so here’s a pretty interesting solution. 

The start point is that you can’t legislate for lunatics. You know Bale has consistently done well on the left, I know Bale has consistently done well on the left.But Our absentee manager and the young man himself with his pursuit of his ‘vision’ seemingly cannot be told. When I say cannot be told, I don’t mean they fail to heed the advice of two bob bloggers, I mean there were two major instances of Spurs supporters watching live games singing this sentiment. 

So, instead of moaning about it, let’s embrace and exploit the madness to THFC’s advantage!?

Bale’s primary negatives from the last season include his unwillingness to defend and his fixation with adopting a more central role. Agreed? Triffic. We’re on our way…

So let’s put him where he believes he needs to be. The boy has insane pace, great stamina, he’s better than good in the air and his runs at – whoever the other lot might be – cause mayhem. His accuracy on goal is ordinarily excellent and if he were settled in the central role suggested, it would surely only improve further. 

The kernel of the ‘Bale problem’ as such has been that him drifting in has left us with Benny as a winger (a position for which he wasn’t hired for; nor is he qualified to do) and congested. 

The answer is Adam Johnson. The guy is class act and one that would be a great fit for us. A talented player who would be well worth the paltrey £10m – £15m that would probably secure his services.

With this man on the wing, the Bale ‘vision’ would not just be indulged in an Ad hoc manner but be properly supported and could be translated into 20+ goals a season.

Bale could well fulfill his ambitions with us. But that won’t happen without us a thinking, embracing and manipulating matters to our advantage. I think this is a plan. BIOYC!

    I think Modric is overrated. I predict a swap with KAKA plus 30mil.

    Your heard it here fist.

    yes fist.

    Question: would Hoilett or Pienaar get anywhere near the first teams of Shitty, Yanited, Ar5ena1 or Cheatski?

    Thought not. So why are they deemed to be good enough for us? We should be aiming a lot higher than players of their ilk if we are to progress as a major force in European football.

      And why wouldn’t they?

      Pienaar has had a great 2012 so far, derailing United’s title challenge in the process – Hoilett was with the second worst team of the season, and he shone in almost every game – he can play ball.

      United already have a wealth of attacking midfielders e.g. young, valencia; chelski have just signed marin and City have countless options….

      Pienaar and Hoilett are realistic players for Spurs to sign (obviously pienaar is a spur) with no CL to attrack a ‘higher’ calibre of player…

      No CL = no likey for chicken badge

    Did you not notice Levy all last summer refusing to even consider approaches for Modric?

    Most took it as a change of attitude at THFC away from selling star players.

    With good reason. We have money in the bank, a good team on the pitch all tied to long contracts, and ambition to do better.

    Instead of selling our better players we should shift some of the deadwood like Bentley, Jenas, and Gio for starters. That is the way to improve the team.
