Gareth Bale was injured in last night’s game against FC Basel and according to Tony Gale of Sky Sports, Spurs will not finish in the Champions League spots.
I don’t know about you, but as a supporter I am desperately tired of hearing that Spurs are a one man team. There are 24 other players in the squad and I am sure that they are still capable of qualifying for the Champions League and winning the Europa League. I never understand the people who are quick to criticize Spurs as a team and say that we are a one man team, well I’m sorry, without the rest of the team would Bale be able to get the ball or have the space to move into? I don’t think so.
I know this may seem like I am ranting a little bit, but to be honest Spurs are a team who on their day - as with any team in the league - are capable of beating anyone, but for Tony Gale to sit there with 7 games to go and say Spurs are out because of injuries to Bale and Lennon is a bit premature and totally unjust really, and to me shows complete disrespect to the rest of the Spurs team. If I was the players I would go out there and show how wrong one man’s opinion could be.
I am hoping that they do and go prove many people wrong and show there is more to the team than Bale. With players like Gylfi, Dembele, and Dawson I am sure without a shadow of a doubt that Spurs can go on and qualify for the Champions League and win the Europa.
So as a supporter I say COME ON YOU SPURS and prove these critics wrong.
