Shame for Bale but realistically at 17 we shouldnt expect too much of the lad...dont wanna burn him out. We know he's quality and hopefully he will have many good years at Spurs. At least its only an injury and not a case of not being up to it (a la Walcott)
Absolutley agree about Hutton and with Woodgate playing well I suddenly dont have that sense of foreboding ive been taking into games so far this season!.
I think we have left it too late to push for an automatic Europe spot to be honest. We'd have to win a lot of our remaining games. Its not impossible but lets hope we can win the CC cup to be certain.
