Gareth Bale has spoken of his praise for Harry and the Tottenham team for last seasons efforts. Bale said he couldn’t wait for the new season to start when Tottenham face Manchester City who will be hungry for revenge.

Bale can afford an even bigger smile now as Pav maybe staying

Bale, 20, said: “That defeat against ­Portsmouth hurt so much and we were obviously down after it.

“But we used it to give ourselves a kick up the backside. The manager made us realise we couldn’t let it affect us in a ­negative way.

“Rather than mope and feel sorry for ourselves, we used it in a positive way and managed to get to fourth in the table – which was unbelievable for the club and the fans.”

“Champions League ­football is what you have to aim for at a club like this.

“But that doesn’t mean we can sit back and ­reflect on the ­achievement.

“Now we must take our football to the next level and that is the task ahead for us in the new ­season.

“I can’t wait – and obviously ­Manchester City at home in our first game is a great fixture given the tussle we had with them last season for fourth.”

Boom Boom Boom let me hear you say Bale……

You’ve got to admire Gaeth Bale for his amazing end to last season, it’s a scary thought but if you think about it logically, it wasn’t down to Harry seeing the boy had potential it was just fate that BAE got injured so Bale got his chance, if that hadn’t happend then Bale would probably have been sold this summer, scary thought hey?

From one player to the next, Roman Pavlyuchenko’s agent has claimed the 28 year old striker will be staying at Spurs, at least for now. His agent Oleg Artemov said  “Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is not going to let Roman leave, he is necessary for Harry Redknapp.With Tottenham about to make their debut in the Champions League it would seem Redknapp wants as many options up front as possible and Pavlyuchenko does not want to miss the opportunity.

“Roman himself does not want to leave England but, if that does happen, he will return to a Russian club.

“We have noted information appeared regarding the possible departure of the striker. Among contenders were Sporting Lisbon and Spartak Moscow.

“But I did not see any movement from Spartak – there were no specifics.

“Interest from both Zenit and Lokomotiv, as was reported in Britain, was nothing.”

Again this in my view is good news, I think Pav has done enough to prove he is worth holding onto for another season, he scored a good brace agaisnt Bournemouth in a friendly and with Robbie Keane destined to leave is it really wise to sell Pav too?

Nice bit of positive news this fine Sunday morning, Bale is happy, Pav might be staying, so guess what? I am happy just like Bale.

HARRY REDKNAPP is set to offer Craig Bellamy a shot at the Champions League with a £6million swoop.

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp will battle against Everton in a fight to land Manchester City striker Craig Bellamy.

He claimed that City hijacked his bid to sign Bellamy, 30, from West Ham in 2009 but now he wants to do business with City boss Roberto Mancini. At 30 years old, Redknapp will not want to pay over the odds as there will be no way to sell Bellamy on for future profit.

Redknapp is set to be backed with cash by his chairman Daniel Levy after securing fourth place ahead of City. And he wants Bellamy to spearhead the Champions League assault by becoming the ninth club manager of his career.

Spurs will offload Robbie Keane, while Roman Pavlyuchenko could also leave in a clear-out of strikers.
