Bale legless

 It's a stomach bug in your ankle Gareth.
Rest it for a week is my advice!

 Bale Legless.
.

 Our Gareth Frank Bale is not known for exploits alcoholic that lead to that universal state of leglesness. Yes Wales emerged triumphant over a Scotland side that played as though they were largely legless. No confirmed reports that Bale took to Glasgow's bars in celebration. After all he's been in bed all week with a virus or was it an
ankle problem.

.

The pre game coverage was most notable for the urgings of John Brown, Dundee United manager, to cancel out Bale. The Brown solution ...

.

                    " He can't run without legs."

.

Translated from the Scottish brogue ... hack him down at every opportunity. True enough it was tried but largely without success. Grant Hanley however did effect a cynical clatter on the Welsh wonder just before half time. Bale did not reappear for the second half.

.

Led our pub to ponder on what Sir Alex Ferguson ( a Scot) or Monsieur Wenger ( a Frog) might have done. Surely Bale would not have got near Hampden Park nor had a chance to discuss Real Madrid life with little Luka when Wales play Croatia next. Obviously there are other factors, call them balls in the air, that Andre Boas has to juggle.

.

Bale has a fierce determination to play for country. Upsetting that apple cart might rebound when summer discussions about his future inevitably crop up. Uncle Andre will certainly have credit in the bank not having stood in Bale's way regards Wales.

.

Still given his value to Spurs, given goals are needed on the run in, perhaps rest might have been preferrred. Bale himself has tweeted the ankle is fine. It's but a stomach virus. Well he would say that.

.

On the upside seems at least two Spurs strikers have been among the goals internationally. Jermain Defoe and Clint Dempsey plus midfielder Gylfi have hit the net.

.

Perhaps our pub can refrain from taking the legless route . Certainly was a preferred option after that dreadful Fulham game. Fingers crossed we have our internationals back injury free.

Clint Dempsey had more snow against Costa Rica than us here. Great to see Clint fit and scoring.

Still we are confined to base here raising a glass or two to some great birthdays. Sirs Redgrave and Hoy are birthday boys. The man who invented the phrase ...

Cheers ... Black Caviar on the menu here ... 24 in a row on Friday .... Greg Meyer        coys.

Just for Greg. If he could he'd sign him for Spurs. Faster even than Gareth Bale. Black Caviar wins his 24th consecutive race. But where would we play him? In the Centaur obviously. Sorry.
