Stoke Goal Enhances Gareth Bale's Burgeoning Reputation

Gareth Bale capped a superb personal performance by scoring a sublime second goal which won the match for Spurs against Stoke City. If the first goal was a little fortuitous, there was no denying that the second goal was testament of what a wonderful left foot the Welsh star possesses. Easily man of the match, I was awestruck by the technique, power and accuracy of his volleyed goal. No keeper in the world could have saved that shot.

On the 29th minute, Aaron Lennon decided to take on two Stoke City players and ran towards the edge of the penalty area. Gareth Bale ghosted in on the left of the Stoke defence, virtually unmarked as the Stoke leftback was napping. With all attention focused on Peter Crouch, Lennon (for once!) lifted the ball over the entire Stoke defence in the direction of Bale. Everyone in the Britannia Stadium watched as the Welshman judged the flight of the ball to perfection and connected sweetly to send the ball past Thomas Sorensen into the top right corner of the Stoke goal. Amazing stuff from the lethal left foot of Gareth Bale!

This Gareth Bale volley gets my vote for Goal of The Week. I'd think we would never see an even better goal all season, so this Bale goal is also my Goal of The 2010/2011 Season!
