The 21-year-old is many peoples' choice for PFA Player of the Year, and it would be hard to argue, as the Welshman has had his best season of his fledgling career.
Unfortunately for Bale, a recent back injury has kept him out for longer than expected. With the injury, he missed the first leg of Tottenham's knockout tie against AC Milian at the scene of his heroics from earlier in the season.
Bale's moment of the season undoubtedly came on the 20th of October 2010 during a Champions League group match against Inter Milan at the San Siro.
'Spurs were struggling and looked mightily out of their class, trailing 4-0 to the defending champions, Inter Milan.
Up to the plate stepped Gareth Bale.
In a scintillating second-half display, Bale netted a hat trick with three fine low strikes, which left Julio Caesar helpless. Although 'Spurs hadn't won this game, it was all about Gareth Bale. The performance helped propel him into the mainstream media, and he was the talk of the football world.
In the subsequent fixture at White Hart Lane, Bale again lit the blue torch paper against the "Nerazzurri". He terrorized Maicon and made him look the shadow of the man that dominated the right side of the pitch at the World Cup.
Other memorable moments for Bale include a superb volley against Stoke City, which, in my opinion, is goal of the season.
