The Sizzle Query: Gareth Bale, Tottenham Hotspur

Although it might seem that we are heavy on the pretty when it comes to our favourite ballers, we don’t appreciate boundaries here at Kickette. Indeed, we admire hotness in all of its forms and if called upon, would fight to the death for your right to fantasise about whoever you like. Even Carlos Tevez.
And with that pledge in mind, we move onto the tricky question of Gareth Bale. Tonight, all eyes will be on young Gareth, whose hat trick in the first leg of Spurs Champions League fixture with Inter Milan kept his side in the tie. The left back/midfielder proved to be the game changer then, can he finish the job off?
While commentators across the globe debate this question, our eyes are on far more serious matters. Is that puppy hot? In previous references to the Welsh wonder, we’ve noticed a somewhat mixed response to his unusual brand of hotness, references to his resemblance to a selection of zoo creatures seemingly being the main criticism.
He certainly has the physique to attract the attention, but is that sufficient? Which side of the great debate on the Marmite boy of the EPL do you stand? And where exactly would you be smearing said vegetable based condiment if given the opportunity?
