    bales stats

    I think we have some brilliant coaches at the Lane, including Bond, Allen and Joe, and I don't think the players would be given a roving role if the coaches didn't make sure they were competent enough to cover in the various positions, I really don't think Harry has a lot to do with that side of things tactically, I think it's all down to the coaching team until the match gets going. In most cases it works...I like Bale having a burst through the middle, like dare I say, Messi? (There, I've said it!) Ade should be allowed to go looking if the ball isn't coming his way, as long as he uses his brain! Which brings me to Rafa...does he actually know what his main role is? He seems to get involved where he's not needed at times and needs that coaching out of him. Lennon is good when he cuts in from the left, predictable, but too fast for anyone to stop him - he really should get more goals. I like the way our CDs get out to cover for Kyle and Benoit when they go on their sorties, too. I think Modders should stay down the centre, playing box-to-box, and I too think Scotty sometimes gets a bit high, his job is to win the ball and lay it off, but still a superb part of team whatever! That's pretty much my view of how we are set up, and not forgetting Sandro who quietly goes about his business...he's not far off Dave Mackay's style! Also having Brad rather than Gomes and his antics has been invaluable...not bad for 40 years old, eh?
