Gareth recalls dream debut

Gareth Bale fondly remembers his debut in the ‘Theatre of Dreams' and insists we're confident as we head to Manchester again on Saturday.

The Welsh flyer stepped out for the first time in a Spurs kit at Old Trafford over three years ago for a Premier League encounter in August, 2007.

Gareth started in left midfield as we lost another tight match by the only goal, Nani's strike securing the points after we'd controversially been denied a penalty when Wes Brown looked to have handled on the line.

"You want to play against the best teams and it doesn't come bigger than playing at Old Trafford," reflected Gareth. "To make my debut there was special.

"It was a great occasion for me and my family. I couldn't have asked for more.

"Every footballer wants to play in stadiums like that against the likes of United and it was a good day all-round apart from the result, which didn't really reflect the game..."

In and out during in his first two and a half years at the club, Gareth has enjoyed a quite spectacular year since returning to the team in January.

Hot on the heels of his stunning hat-trick in the San Siro, he is confident the team can produce a positive result against United.

"We're only two points behind United and we'll go into the game full of confidence and trying to cause an upset," added Gareth.

"We're a good team and we want to take something out of every game.

"It will be a massive test. We know how good they are and what good players they have, but they will have to worry about us as well.

"It will be an exciting game and hopefully we'll come out on the winning side this time."
