Bale: My best form ever

Tottenham Hotspur star Gareth Bale has told Sky Sports that he is playing the best football of his career.

Last Updated: 15/02/13 at 10:48 Post Comment

The Welsh wizard has made a remarkable start to the New Year and has not only scored in his last five games for club and country but he has also hit Spurs' last six goals over four matches after two more against Lyon.

He again stole the show on Thursday as he helped Spurs to a 2-1 win over the French giants at White Hart Lane in the Europa League, scoring two free-kicks.

Bale has now hit 17 goals for the campaign, easily the best total of his career and he admits he has never played better.

"I would probably say it is the best I have been playing in my career," he told Sky Sports.

"As I said I am enjoying my football and the team is playing well which makes things easier for me.

"I just have to keep my head down and keep working hard and keep my form.

"I still have a lot of improvement, I know what I have to do but season on season I am improving but I will just keep working hard and hopefully get better."

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
