Bale is insane. Reminds me so much of Ronaldo in 06/07, you can clearly see he bases his game on him too.
AVB is a BOSS, always defended him with Chelsea, where he was is a horrible situation. He's really getting the best out of these players, they look so much more solid than they did under arry. They're really a couple of signings away from being title contenders, assuming they keep their best players.
Guess wenger was right not to cough up that extra half million or so.
