I meant it, but I didn’t think it would come off that well.”, Endless repetition in Match of the Day title sequences burned this goal into the memory of every English football fan of a certain age but Hoddle himself ranks this as his second-best, behind a volley scored against Manchester United in 1979. please read our, Bale to add plenty of creativity for Tottenham, says Hoddle, Glenn Hoddle tips Gareth Bale for unexpected role after Tottenham return, Former Tottenham manager backs new signing to be pivotal to Spurs this season, Glenn Hoddle explains how Gareth Bale will get the best out of Harry Kane, ‘Creator’ Bale will be a major asset to Tottenham, Mourinho and Kane, says Hoddle, Glenn Hoddle believes Gareth Bale can be the 'creator' Tottenham are lacking, Bale Can Thrive At Spurs In Creative Role – Hoddle, Hoddle says Bale can thrive at Spurs in creative role, Glenn Hoddle gives verdict on Chelsea star Callum Hudson-Odoi during Under-21s international, 'I worry that he is the new Matt Le Tissier' - Elis James issues claim on AVFC man, ‘Wonderful’ – Glenn Hoddle blown away by one West Brom player in first-half v Southampton, Liverpool backed to win Premier League and Champions League by Glenn Hoddle, Former Premier League manager makes bold Liverpool trophy prediction after transfer claim, Podcast Review - The Glenn Hoddle Footy Show, Hoddle thinks linked-away 27-year-old gives Liverpool ‘a different dimension’, Glenn Hoddle rates Mikel Arteta and makes prediction for Liverpool vs Arsenal, Jadon Sancho tipped to sign seven-year Man Utd contract as part of Woodward transfer plan, Spurs legend Hoddle says Kane needs trophies in ‘make or break season’, Glenn Hoddle names ‘big challenge’ that Tottenham have with their forward, ‘Kane leaves Spurs in 2021 if no silverware secured’ – Hoddle hoping Bale can make a difference, Exclusive: Messi missed golden chance to test himself with Barcelona U-turn, Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho 'needs to win silverware if Harry Kane is to stay', warns Glenn, Glenn Hoddle Excited to See a 'Better Gareth Bale' at Tottenham, BT Sport pundits name the three biggest qualities Gareth Bale will add to the Tottenham team, Exclusive: Glenn Hoddle claims Tottenham do not need to buy another striker, Exclusive: Hoddle claims Ndombele can be Spurs’ next Eriksen over ‘half-decent’ Lo Celso, If Tottenham can get Gareth Bale motor running he’ll Spur them on – Glenn Hoddle, Glenn Hoddle expecting Gareth Bale to give Tottenham immediate boost, Glenn Hoddle has 'some concerns' over Gareth Bale's return to Tottenham, Tottenham legend fires warning to former club over Gareth Bale return, ‘Bale deal is exciting, but good luck to the physios!’ – Hoddle hoping to see Welshman shine, Exclusive: Glenn Hoddle reveals why he has ‘reservations’ about Gareth Bale’s Spurs return, Glenn Hoddle interview: “Bale is like a car with plenty in the tank - this is a shrewd deal for Tottenham", Tottenham legend claims Bale deal will ‘make or break’ their season, Levy masterclass: Spurs clinching major upgrade in £27m speed demon who Hoddle loves - opinion. Based on all the football you have ever seen, you will expect Hoddle to control the ball and then either a) lay it back so someone else can shoot from the edge of the area; b) spin and shoot with his left foot; or c) engage on some sort of mazy dribbling before falling over a defender’s leg. It is, perhaps, the amount of time the ball spends in the air on its way in, at its best giving fans a few seconds to savour the normally fleeting feeling of impending celebration, and allowing the goalkeeper, already beaten, to further humiliate himself by optimistically sprinting backwards or even more optimistically attempting actually to fly. We will not share your email address with any third parties. We can just watch, jaws gently agape, and recall the words of Mike in Swingers: “That was so fucking money. After enjoying that goal against United, watch a couple of other celebrated right-foot volleys (Van Basten for Holland against the USSR, say, or Shearer for Newcastle against Everton) and it is hard not to think: “Yeah, nice goal, but the follow-through’s a bit prosaic, isn’t it?”.
