UEFA Champions League : Is Gareth Bale The Next Big Thing?

[dropcap]I[/dropcap]n what has been a breakout season in the Premiership, Tottenham’s Gareth Bale may finally be mentioned among the world’s best.

The Welsh national has single-handily carried the Spurs to a potential Champions League birth in scoring 24 goals in 40 games.

For the sake of argument—as well as removing my own personal Arsenal bias—Bale has done a magnificent imitation of a proverbial one-man wrecking crew at White Hart Lane.

In becoming the fourth two-time winner of the prestigious PFA Player Of The Year Award joining Thierry Henry, Alan Shearer and Cristiano Ronaldo, and winning the Football Writer’s Player Of The Year Award, Bale has barely scratched the inner surface of his true talent.

Overshadowed by big names such as Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie, Luis Suarez, Carlos Tevez, Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, it is borderline tragic that few talk of Bale being among the best in the world.

And still at the young age of 23, Bale has all the makings and natural scoring talent of becoming the next great thing in football.

The only question that remains needs to be answered is if Bale is already there, or is he just beginning?
