Gareth Bale
« on: July 23, 2019, 04:49:42 AM »
The first time I saw him play was as a full back and was as poor as Hutton.  So what an immense career he!s had.   My own take on him at Rrrrrreal Madrid is that he was in his time a bigger club ledg than Zidane and thatís the reason Zidane wants him out. Pogba may be a terrific player but what a nuisance he can turn out to be

Mad to think of what he has won and yet he's still not really popular over there. Then again, those are the fans that booed Ronaldo. They're a bunch of Francoite bellends.

Having said that, he has shit hair, a terrible celebration and is a diving twat so I won't cry my eyes out for him. And the £600k a week probably provides some consolation for his treatment.

I hope he rinses them for every penny he can get. He has won far more there than Zidane did as a player and won the Champs League for them the last time. The way they are engineering him out as a way of thank you is pretty disgraceful.

Wouldn't surpise me if he's still there when the transfer window closes. He doesn't want to go to China and nobody else can/will pay his wages.

If he ends up somewhere it will likely be with Real paying more than half his wages, so I'm not sure what they've really achieved by treating him as a pariah.

It's because he wont integrate with the team and sticks to himself, doesn't speak the language.

Put another way, it's like trying to drive the quiet guy out of your office, as gets in at 9 and leaves at 5, but just gets on with his work and bills like a trooper for you without ever causing you a problem.

Seems set for Jiangsu Suning. Three year contract, a million quid a week.

Be interesting to see if he sticks it out. I think a fair few players used to the comforts of European football have moaned about how hard they're expected to work over there.

The decision to move to China confirms heís only interested in money rather than proving he is still a great player. I suspect he knows his best days are behind him as do the top European teams which is why no one has been beating down the door to try and sign him.

What the actual fuck?! And there was me thinking that his reported £600k per week at Real was obscene.

It didnít appear that he had too many choices, once it was clear Zidane wanted him out there wasnít any serious European interest was there?

Yeah. I'm no Bale fan, but he's damned either way here. Stay at Real and sit on the bench and everyone will call him a lazy mercenary. Go to the only place that has shown an interest and get called a greedy mercenary.

He could take a pay cut - to say a measly £200k a week - and play for a club in a decent league. I get that most of us wouldnít take a pay cut but most of us havenít already earned enough during our career that our children would never have to work let alone ourselves. He could still earn a lot of money by even top footballer standard and play in a competitive level if he wanted to. If cash is his only concern then he deserves to be called a mercenary.

I get that point of view but unless I missed a story that didnít appear to have been a choice for him did it?
