Here at the Football Transfer Tavern it is becoming more and more of a given that we will be applauding a truly magical display by Gareth Bale after a Spurs fixture. Tottenham Hotspur currently sit third in the Premier League and look well on their way to securing a place in the Champions League. Add to this the brilliant last-gasp knockout of Lyon in the Europa League and the Lilywhites are certainly in a hot vein of form right now.
Bale seems to have the midas touch currently and we have even been considering naming the video jukebox ‘the Gareth Bale appreciation thread’ after he has featured again and again with his spectacular goals. Given how well his strikes are executed and how important they tend to be, it comes as no shock that the Welshman features once more this time round.
Bale’s finishes were scintilating last night and even a brilliant performance from the Hammers keeper Jussi Jaaskelainen could not prevent Spurs from overcoming their London rivals. We all thought Joe Cole’s passionate celebrations would prove the big splash on the back pages, yet the video below shows exactly why Andre Villas-Boas’ star man has taken all the plaudits yet again.
Given the current form of the Welsh wing wizard, it is only natural that he is highly coveted by Real Madrid and our punters have been speculating just how much the midfielder is currently worth, with every performance adding a few more millions to his potential transfer value.
Take a look at Bale’s latest screamer for yourself in the video below.
