I think recently he's cut that right out of his game, even then I don't think it was ever that bad. Some were comical, but I genuinly some of the times he goes down is simply the result of irresistable force meeting unmoveable object at the pace he moves at.

He's a diver! All that rubbish about how it's hard to stay on your feet when running fast and are then brushed by a defender is bollocks. Rugby players spend 80 mins trying to stay on their feet while running fast and being absolutely clattered!!!
It's not that difficult if you really want to stay on your feet. But modern players, not just Bale, look for the easy option and the free kick/penalty most of the time

Rugby isn't comparable, the art of tackling is a different ball game altogether in that sport. In football you tackle with your feet, and a clipping of heels or whatnot is inevitable at some point. Try running on a treadmill at full pelt and see what happens is someone stands behind you and clips your feet. You'll go down.

Anyway, I do admit he's gone down easy in the past but like I said, I think he's cut it out. The scrutinty he was coming under meant he had to, really.

True.

But on the other hand if someone stands behind you and doesn't clip your feet, you won't go down.

I'm a Spurs fan so I'm a bit biased towards my view of him, but what I will say is if we do not get into the Champions League this year he should leave, there's no point him playing in the Europa League, utter waste of his time.

He needs to be playing in the big games, the properly big games, and Spurs need to spend a bit of cash in the summer to strengthen the spine of that team, defence should be the priority. For what it's worth, Sigurdsson was man of the match for me last night, an immense player.

Sounds like a strange attitude for a Spurs fan. He is their best player where would they be without him.

Hopefully Scott Brown is back in time for Scotland vs Wales and puts in a rather hefty challenge early on to nullify the threat.

This.

It really isn't hard, like this comment says, rugby players get shoulders and hands all over them whilst running faster than your average footballer (since they aren't focusing on something on the ground)...they need literally wrestled to the ground before they go down or completely taken out from under them, not any of this utter ***** about a tiny shove knocking them off balance or a tiny clip resulting in a sniper shot to the back.

Players like Bale are a joke with this and ruining the game.

Great player but a total fud.

The talk was that Man Utd could potentially bring Ronaldo back for 55M.

In my opinion, if they are willing to pay this kind of money then they should forget Ronaldo and go for Bale. Yes Ronaldo is a better just now but they are both exceptional, and considering Ronaldo is 28 and Bale is 23, I think that Bale would be the better signing.

There is zero comparison between rugby and football when it comes to contact, come on...

Football allows an advantage from going down easily, rightly or not. What's the equivalent in rugby? There isn't one, it's the complete opposite. You wouldn't have a career in the game if you feigned infringements.

You don't even have to compare fitba against rugby to conclude that Bale's at it. You just have to look at old fitba footage - watching George Best, for example, you can clearly see that the fashion then was for attackers not to cheat, whereas the fashion now is for attackers to cheat. Modern pundits, too, with their fondness for euphemisms - "going to ground", "being clever", "drawing the foul" - are doing tremendous damage. Just call it diving, out loud, and dish out long retrospective bans, and it'd all stop within a few weeks.

:agree: or even some present day footage where you can see Messi getting tripped, fouled and generally set upon but always trying to stay on his feet and beat his opponent using skill rather than brute force

My Spurs pal assures me that Bale will stay if Totts make the top four.

It would be fascinating to see him playing for Real or Inter or whatever but I fear his galloping progress might be stifled.

I see a similar mindset between Ronaldo and Bale when it comes to staying on their feet. They will not always look to down nor will they always look to stay up and beat the opponent with skill. But that element is quite obviously there. Which is why when it comes to the question of who is the best player in the world, Messi gets my vote every time.

Ha Ha ! There are similarities indeed. Success in the occasional cup and then underachievement in the league.

It's strange. Spurs have one big dozy overpaid striker and one wee injured striker. They rely on players coming from behind to get the goals.

When they are on song they are sublime to watch and with some investment they could be challenging the Barcas and Reals.

It surprises me every transfer window that they never try and buy a world class striker.

As good as Bale is, Spurs are not a one man team, they have top quality throughout the team but have some very obvious weaknesses, which is why they will never challange for the top 2 places with the current setup or investment level.

Sadly WHL has a lot to do with that. One of the best grounds (in terms of atmosphere) I've been to, but it's holding Spurs back big time. The new stadium should see to that, but it will be sad to see the old one go.
