Amid all the euphoria (save for poor old Daws ‘s injury) surrounding Englands victory over the Bulgars I took some time out to catch up on some of our other players on international duty for their respective countries. In doing so I came across this exciting prospect flying down the right flank, bamboozling defences and puting in quality crosses time and time again.
So effective was this player the opposition in their frustration resorted to the most cynical of tactics blocking and fouling at every opportunity yet most of which went largely unpunished by the match official. The picture gives it away and no Spurs fan will be surprised to learn the kind of superlatives that accompany a Gareth Bale performance these days be it for club or country.
What might surprise them is most of the good work done by Gareth happened down the right (yes I said the right) hand side of the field. Is anyone else aware of this phenomena? Since Gareth’s amazing rise in form the majority of debate has centred on whether his best position is at left back or left midfield but after watching him perform just as effectively on the right side I think its an area that Harry would do well to look at in future.
Now I’m not saying for one minute Gareth should switch to the other flank, far from it but Lennon is often used to less effect away from his preferred side and Harry could do a lot worse than to try this option in future games if for no other reason than to freshen things up or provide a poser for the opposition?Follow @TrfficTottenham
