I bumped into Andre Villas-Boas the other day. He was kind enough to give me an insight into the detailed arrangements made for the Spurs squad if they have to stay away from home in a hotel before a game. They always send Gareth Bale down to breakfast first.
“Why Gareth?” I asked.
“Because he’s the one who always saves our bacon.”
Boom Boom. I thangyew.
I’m here every night ladies and gentlemen.
By the time he reaches the end of his career, the Gareth Bale Greatest Goals video is going to be one of the best.He did it again last night at Norwich. Thanks Gareth for another fantastic goal.
One point from a match from which we could have expected three but after another shaky first half, Andre Villas-Boas orchestrated an impressive recovery in the second with some active management from the touchline, including distributing instructions on Post-Its. We are still in with a shout of 3rd, let alone 4th, thanks to most other results going our way, including Chelsea’s latest collapse and Arsenal’s draw, despite another fifteen minutes of scintillating football from them in the second half following another pathetic defensive display in the first fifteen.
Incidentally it looks like some of Chelsea’s transfer targets are starting to cotton on that there are better career decisions to take than sign for the money and ending up joining the not so small army of predecessors on loan to middle ranking clubs around Europe. Witness Jack Buckland’s decision to turn down a transfer to Stamford Bridge.
