    Le Prat™® - 'Rafael had Bale in his pocket'

    how many chances did bale create, and how many did he score?
    rafael did a good job and in fact looked more dangerous going forward than bale did, till that ridiculous red, but hey we wont call it cheating, conspiracy, or favouritism, were far better than that, we just accept it and move on, and mike dean wont even be wearing a spurs shirt or have a post saying he will be rested for next week.

    class team, class fans

    • Spot on Lynden, I think only ONE Bale cross actually was met by a Spurs player!

      Rafael was one of our most threatening offensive players 2nd half, he's just as much an exciting talent as Hernandez, and with a more experience should become one of the best in the world in his position over the next couple years.

      Bale is athletic, but terribly predictable.

      A bit like a Deepak or spursslag post!

    • And not to mention that it was a very tense affair. I would've preferred if we beat them, but given all the pre-match hype that Spurs would snap our unbeaten streak, i must say i'm satisfied with a point.

    • If Bale was having such a great game against Rafael why did he move in to midfield in the second half? He was against a fullback on a yellow and he passed up the chance to take him on. Actions as they say speak louder than words.

    • the system with just crouch upfront works well against lesser teams.

      but your utds,chelseas, & arsenals are too clever for that.

      he should have started with defoe upfront as he would turn the CBs, make runs & create space & be sniffing around in the area for any chances.

      crouch is too immobile to be a lone striker against top teams.

      which meant when bale & modric had chances to put balls in the box they had to be inch perfert for a usually marked crouch who most likely would be beaten to the ball by vidic anyway.

      harry got his tactics wrong.

      bale got far too much time and space to cross from silvas point
      of view.

      according to your logic topofthetree, defenders can make as many mistakes as they like as long as they dont lead to goals.

      i dont think fergie will be hiring u as defensive coach anytime soon.

        where did i say that?

        and you said harry got his tactics wrong, its not me looking to do someones job but im sure you might get an award from harry for stating the obvious.
        had you won, it would have been the right decision, had he played your way and lost, you would have said the same, hindsight is wonderful, but it wont get you the job harry is doing so well in.

      • If Bale had bene as dominant as you think he was them why did all the SKY pundits say his battle with Rafael was a good contest? Not one of them said that either player was winning that battle.Yes Bale got some crosses in but there were times when Rafael stopped him and also Bale didn`t do enough to stop Rafael`s forward runs.
