Agree on Bale he seems to congest the middle of the park around their penalty area. Made it difficult to get through them, lack of width from the team me thinks. Lennon wasn't attacking the fullback on his side much either, everything seemed to be trying to get through the middle of their defence which was very efficient.
3 belting strikes though for the goals. I don't think UMTITI will hit a sweeter ball than his goal and Bale has obviously been working hard on his free kick method. Can't say I've seen another player strike the ball and cause the movement that he gets from this new approach. It seems to dip as well as swerve!!
