Gareth Bale has been linked with a move back to the Premier League.

Nothing is going to stop Arsenal basking in the glow of their north London derby success this week. Let’s pretend last night’s defeat in Cologne didn’t happen – Mathieu Debuchy started the match so it’s not like anyone was ever taking it seriously – and just imagine that the 2-0 v Spurs is still their most recent outing.

Then take that glorious momentum, add a dollop of transfer market spunk, and what are you left with? Gareth Bale at the Emirates!

The Mirror – via Spanish sociopaths Don Balon – claims the Gunners have made a “shock move” to sign the Welshman from Real Madrid.

And it would be a shock on many levels. Firstly, because Gareth’s old friends at Tottenham would be rather upset about it. Secondly, because Bale – if he goes anywhere – is expected to join Manchester United. And thirdly, because Arsenal are still not very good at football really.

But this is not a normal week. The Gunners are north London’s top dogs (albeit not in league position) and it’s a time to dream that anything is possible (until Sunday’s inevitable narrow defeat by Burnley at Turf Moor)
