They've done it. Tottenham have successfully cloned prized possession Gareth Bale and are well on their way to creating a their dream team comprised solely of Bales and Luka Modrics. And if that isn't true, then it seems they have resorted to signing lookalikes in the hope that they will also be playalikes.
That's actually first year academy player Kenneth McEvoy pictured above, or "Baby Bale" as I imagine Harry Redknapp calls him. This has to be the most successful of Spurs' cloning efforts, though. The abominations that were the Peter Crouch clones all had to be put down.
