Tottenham's gamble of selling Gareth Bale to Real Madrid and using the proceeds of the world-record fee to bolster its squad with a slew of new players has backfired.Instead, Tottenham played three centerbacks in a four-man defense, had a rightback playing midfield and a winger roving across the front line.Some say Bale wouldn't have accepted that and may have gone on strike.Over at Old Trafford, Manchester United refused to even contemplate Wayne Rooney's departure amid interest from Chelsea.If Levy had denied Bale his move, after initial disgruntlement the winger would likely have knuckled down and helped Spurs challenge for the top four. Given the transition going on at United following Alex Ferguson's departure and the managerial changes at City and Chelsea, this was always going to be the season where the established "Big Four" of City, United, Arsenal and Chelsea could be broken up.Since then, Spurs have been in a state of flux.
