UNREALISTIC to expect Gareth Bale to be his old self for Tottenham - Alejandro Moreno | ESPN FC

Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho suggested Gareth Bale will “probably” make his second debut for Spurs against West Ham, but will he be able to rediscover his form? ESPN FC’s Shaka Hislop, Alejandro Moreno and Don Hutchison dive into Bale’s relationship with Mourinho and Harry Kane, his return to Tottenham after growing discontent at Real Madrid and what impact he will have in the Premier League.

It's unrealistic for espn fc to get thier predictions right.

That's exactly what people said about James Rodriguez. It's really intellectually dishonest to judge someone playing in a team where he isn't wanted.

Surprise surprise, I don’t see the point of asking clueless Ale Moreno any questions related to spurs, we know his answer. Also this Presenter doesn’t seem to like spurs very much does he 😂 perhaps he should make that more obvious! listen idiots of ESPN, no one expects Bale to be the same player as 5 years ago, if he’s 60% of that player it’s enough and we are going to do some damage!

This is like LEBRON COMING BACK TO CLEVELAND and winning the championship. Not saying Tottenham gonna even come close but He’s a Good Addition.
Jack Clements

it's not about Bale being his old self. If he can score and assist around 10 then he makes us 10x better because Lucas numbers are terrible

Simply stunning to see that no matter what Spurs do that ESPN will still be haters. This Tottenham team is very deep at every position now. The next 5 games will say it all. Daniel Levy has given Jose what he wanted now its the time to prove the doubters wrong.

His players whom knew what Mourinho was all about would die for him. That’s not an empty statement. Go ask Drogba who couldn’t be consoled for 3 days after finding out Mourinho was leaving Chelsea. Or Sneijder who only decided to stay with Inter and not go to United because of Mourinho. Just because he hasn’t been winning Champions League’s left and right does not take away from the greatness of one Jose Mourinho. Respect Man Respect
David Montgomery
David Montgomery:
I'm glad the media is finally starting to give Mourinho his due once again. He clearly has always wanted the best for each of his players. The problem was too many mentally soft players that can't handle actual coaching leaking nonsense to the media that should be kept inside the locker room.

Alejandro has no idea what a motivated and happy Gareth Bale is gonna do for Spurs. Hater through and through
If Michael Jordan went from Basketball to baseball to basketball then I think Bale can go from Football to golf to Footall. Once class always class. Also I think playing another sport gives you a perspective on the sport you are currently playing. I hadn't played football in a year but played tennis and suddenly I was able to ping the ball. (Was not able to before).

I’m not comparing in anyway but honestly ale did you say that about Christiano did you say gang about hazard like shut up already
Son Kane and Bale will become the most feared trio in the world this season
Alejandro is just pissed that half a Bale is still double the footballer that he ever was.
70% of the former Bale with the experience he has now and how he sees the game could be just as lethal if you think about it. It's still better than 90% of the other attackers in the league.
Yousef Ahmed
Yousef Ahmed:
Bale is still a good footballer if he has the right attitude he could do really well I mean the guy is still one of real Madrids greatest ever players
Not saying Ale Moreno is WRONG but he's been a Bale hater for as long as I can remember.

Ahhh, ESPN man, I don’t know anymore 😂😂 Josè Mourinho could literally save the world alone and they’ll still hate on him
Sunil Aggarwal
Sunil Aggarwal:
More anti Spurs rethoric. If Man Utd signs Bale, the theme would be "exactly what Utd need, a world class player". But because it's Spurs, "oh he is no longer world class." No one expects him to be the same player he was when he left Spurs, least of all Bale. He even said it himself in interviews.

Erik lamela isn’t going to start he is overrated and the opposite of gareth bale.

So, according to last guy Spurs form is because bale and regulion joined them. He is talking away credit from jose, tgey just hate him its simple.
And I talked to spurs fan 9 out of 10 were so happy when jose joined and the way he improved their position with son, kane injured.
Abu Ceesay
Abu Ceesay:
If Gareth Bale can discover the form that he once was, he will form a very deadly frontline with Son and kane. I would say it will be the best front 3 in the EPL
Ali Babar
Ali Babar:
Haha Alle Moreno is funny with his analysis.
Everton are 👇... points clear of the league
I don't think any Spurs fan are expecting BALE to single handedly destroy the opponents.
Spurs are a good team now; so Bale can start changing is playing style so that it suits his body and he stays fits throughout the season.
No need for a 70 yards sprint, just 30 yards sprint is enough to cause a problem in opposition defense.

Watch Gareth take the Premier League by storm. IMO he’s an amazing player, sadly Madrid didn’t appreciate what he’d done for them.

For Bale the language was always a struggle. I can bet that he now speaking his own language, he will feel better and will be beneficial for the club.
Tymko C
Tymko C:
This might be the Spurs season. The last great triumph of Mourinho. The team looks strong except the centre back position. If not Kane might want to seek greener pastures next summer, big stars want to win big trophies before their careers end.
It is unrealistic to expect ESPN to be unbiased towards spurs
Glenn Fletcher

He hasn’t played yet!!!?? Or do you know something that everyone else doesn’t???
I’m a Chelsea support but he doesn’t know what he’s on about bale is a beast 👌
Its fascinating to watch pundits get things wrong 🙂

Thank you. I now know u saw my comment..speak more of spurs they have supporters too..
I think this guys are forgetting the amount of titles Bale has single-handedly given Real Madrid by his performances on finals. Talk about real pressure.
Ankit Negi

We are living in the era where a guy who played football in MLS questioning Gareth bale footballing abilities who had won leagues, champions league etc. A injured Bale is way better than espn football pundits.
Geez Ale is annoying...
Michael Gray
Michael Gray:
No one at Spurs inc Bale himself has suggested that he'll be the same player as 5 years ago. This Alejandro guy just seems to continually troll Bale no matter what he does.

I wish that Pochettino was given Reguilon, Højberg, Doherty to his side.

Nonetheless, on paper, Tottenham could go places although they still need a centre-half.

To the bald pundit-The same bale scored two in champions league final in 2018. It's not bale's fault if zidane puts him on bench and not even give him minutes from the bench. Rodríguez was also in the same position and see what he has done with everton. Bale is gonna do the same with spurs. Real made a mistake by allowing bale and Rodríguez leave. Stop blaming bale it's all zidane and real's fault he may have been injured a lot times but they didn't play him when he was fit. When he played(also as a substitute) in champions league final 2018 he singlehandedly won real the match. James was not injured why didn't real play him last season or season's before he was on loan at bayern. Real just stockpiles and have not respected bale and james. HE IS THE LAST REAL MADRID GALATICO.

Nate Stum
Nate Stum:
Absolutely none of us Spurs fans think we are getting the 2013 version of Bale. He might have lost a touch of pace but he makes up for it with his passing and long range shooting. He will still bang in goals alongside Kane and Son. ESPNFC is completely clueless and biased when it comes to Spurs and Mourinho. No respect whatsoever
K. Deekay
K. Deekay:
ESPN UK will never have any thing good for Jose. anything Jose is toxic for espn these guys are born Jose haters, they have till January to start jumping on the train or still come up with other conspiracies. Pundits have the easiest job in the world they win every game in the studio ask Henry and Gary and even Roy they will tell you its easier to win in the studio than on the pitch.
Not a bale fan but I have a feeling Ale will eat his words
dont worry these so called pundits said same about james , players like james are extinct,they are donosaurs,they are luxury players,remember!bla bla bla
It's almost like people want Bale to play great just so that they can shove it in Real Madrid and Zidane's face "HAHA LOOK WHAT YOU'RE MISSING OUT ON."

It's unrealistic for an injury prone player to suddenly start balling just because he moved clubs. I'd rather wait until the end of the season and see how he performs, but I'm not predicting him to either start balling or flop.
Your right he will be better
I don't expect him to be making 80 yard runs past the world's best defenders but I do expect him to embarrass the likes of Maguire.
Neiko McCalla
Neiko McCalla:
No worries... If Bale plays he will be injured

They just don't like bale they of all people should know if you not practicing or playing because your coach doesn't like you what do you do with your free time they human to and gareth bale loves playing golf there's nothing wrong with that what do they expect him to do eat like hazard all day secondly bale is better then anyone in that real madrid team and it hasnt been 5 years it's been 2 years in the last 2 years he hasn't played because of Zidane and the last game 2 years ago he was better then anyone in the real madrid team shows you that they know absolutely nothing .
