    Will Bale succumb to the media hype?

    We've all been talking about St Gareth of Bale a lot recently, and I think I've started to come round. In an ideal world I think I would prefer him to have a strict manager who keeps him firmly on the wing with his main purpose being provider, but that's not what's happening at the moment and while he's got his goal boots on we might as well take advantage of it.

    That said, while he's going for individual gold at every opportunity he is not fulling the function of a winger, and so shouldn't be playing in one of the team's 'provider' positions. I'd preferably put him at AM rather than 2nd striker, but either of those would do - realistically it means taking the place of Dempsey or Dembele, gut says Demspey but formation says Dembele.

    so an attacking line up of (on current fitness):
    Sigurdsson-Parker (I prefer him to Sandro, but it's close)-Bale-Lennon

    Or - once Defoe's back this may work:


    Long term he should move back to wing for sure, but for now let's put him in the position he's playing instead of congesting the team.

    • Oooh, forgot Holtby... he's looking good so I'd like him to get a run, not sure where his best place is yet... he's got the kind of gung ho attitude that makes me think he could give pretty much an position a crack, perhaps taking Dempsey's place in the first line up & Gylfi's in the second?
