Now that the dust has settled....

...a couple of things;

It’s being widely reported that Jose is running out of patience with Bale and didn’t particularly want him at Spurs in the first place, which begs the question, what the f*ck has gone on there?!

Another thing I picked up is Jose insisting the message has never been to “sit back and soak up the pressure" so, why are they playing that way?

It’s all a bit fishy if you ask me!

Talking of liking or not liking Jose, has any heard from Sandy since our dip in form? Is he safe and well?

Sandy is just fine.
He is obeying lock down.
And he has taken a rest from this stupid board which gives him indigestion every time he looks at it.
Instead he is swimming every morning in the pond at Hampstead Heath.

Good to hear he's safe!

The 'stupid board' line though did make me double take a little bit. For a minute there I thought Sandy might have multiple accounts.

But it’s hardly like bale has been given much of a chance is it? Winks has had many more chances and not done much, Sanchez, Doherty, gedson, the same

Interesting quote overheard in training. Not sure if it's Bale or Reguillon but I'd love to hear what was said just before it. The irony is, if it is Bale, HE'S NOT PLAYING JOSE!!!!!

(Really hope it doesn't refer to Reguillon itching to get back to Spain)

Sound on by the way, it's very quiet.

Exactly, we have not seen enough of Bale to gauge whether he is up to it or not.

Bale is in the same boat as Dele, a victim of Mourinho`s negative brand of defend first football.

Bale was always a huge gamble which is why I disagreed with it at the time.

Make no mistake the first time he was a super hero for us and was simply sensational but things like the way he forced his move to Madrid and his big banner of Wales Golf Madrid shows to me that he has a bit of attitude going on.

I thought it before we signed him and I think it now, he is a spent force and I would far rather remember his first time at Spurs and the sensational player he was then than harp on about him now.
