Commentary and Analysis
You saw the headlines when he signed Maybe you’ve also captured the footage of him shooting balls at home in training Now all that’s left is to see Gareth Bale return to the pitch in Premier League game for Tottenham Hotspur The wait is over
« He’s hard working, very committed, very professional, very happy, » Jose Mourinho said recently as Bale’s preparations continued. « I believe the two weeks of the international break can be important weeks for his last recovery phase and fitness problem «
The countdown to the game against West Ham on Sunday is on The buzz is here among fans and even players will feel energized by the presence of Britain’s most successful active footballer This Spurs squad has seen stars leave the club and others linked with moves Now they are joined by a quadruple Champions League winner
It’s an important symbol, a signature statement with intangible benefits But, despite all the noise, all the talk that everyone is blown away by what they see from Bale to Hotspur Way, this are details that will become meaningless when he really comes back
Bale is 31, beyond his prime by most standards, and there’s little evidence in his production to suggest he’s likely to be an outlier He returns after his lesser seasons productive for a decade, having scored just three goals in 20 appearances for Real Madrid
His only club football goal in the past 12 months came in a Copa del Rey game against the third-tier Unionistas in front of a small crowd in the university town of Salamanca It’s been over two years since he found the net in consecutive games for Madrid
Can he turn it back on? The fear is that Bale will be competing not only against opponents, but also against the memory fans have had of him since the first time. To be precise, this 21-goal Premier League season that would prove to be his last at White Hart Lane, when he fell in nine goals off the penalty bench, a display of punching power that no one has improved since.
Maybe it’s a battle he can’t win, but even though these heights can’t be scaled anymore, it’s a matter of Bale’s legacy rather than a concern for Mourinho

The practical problem for the Tottenham manager is not whether this Bale can surpass Bale who last donned a Spurs shirt seven years ago, but whether he represents a better option than those currently operating on the right side of his attack line
That’s a simpler question It’s also one that has what many would say is an equally simple answer Lucas has only scored five goals in 2,520 minutes of Premier League football since the start of last season It’s a bad comeback from the Brazilian and even though Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son shone, the other man in attack seemed a weak link in comparison
It is important to find an update It lifts the spurs It fixes a deficiency that left others a clear advantage Liverpool has Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah Manchester City has Raheem Sterling, Sergio Aguero, Riyad Mahrez and many others Even Mourinho’s former club Manchester United looked stronger in attack after Mason Greenwood emerged
Dele Alli was Tottenham’s third-highest scorer last season with eight Premier League goals – even less than the third-highest scorer for each of the teams that finished in the top four But with Alli falling out of favor, it has putting more burden on other Bales can help fill this void
He doesn’t have to score 21 goals to do so To make this team better, you just need to score more than the man he’s replacing Could he push this team in the right direction? Could he score the goals Mahrez and Greenwood have scored from that good channel?
While Bale’s recent return has been mediocre, while Spurs are convinced there were any mitigating factors that contributed to his poor performance in his final year at Madrid, there are plenty of reasons for optimism
Although there have been some fluctuations in his form, Bale has never sank below 040 goals every 90 minutes in each of his first six seasons in La Liga His best campaign has seen him score 19 goals in the competition at a pace of almost one for every 90 minutes he spent on the pitch
Overall, in the last 10 seasons of top football, a period in which Bale has played over 20,000 minutes for Tottenham and Real Madrid, his 118 goals have been 050 goals every 90 minutes Fortunately, that’s a goal for all other full games
If Mourinho can bring Bale onto the pitch and keep him there for most of their remaining 34 games this Premier League season, as a repeat of this season of 21 goals overtakes him, a return of something in the area of 12 goals could be more attainable This is a significant figure with historical clues as to what this could mean for Tottenham
Assuming that Kane and Son can also stay clear of injury, given that the pair have already scored three and six goals respectively this season, it could give Spurs three players capable of reaching the 12 mark. Premier League goals
Only 14 teams in Premier League history have counted a trio of players who have all scored so many goals in the same season Each of them finished in the top two
The only time Tottenham possessed this kind of firepower was during the 2016/17 season when Kane, Son and Alli all hit the target Coincidentally, this season has been the only time in in the last 57 years the club have finished among the top two in English football
It’s the transformative effect of having three regular scorers on the pitch at the same time It’s the transformative effect that a perfectly adjusted ball could have on this side of Spurs
