Default "This is my dream come true" Gareth Bale

Welcome to the best club in the world, HALA MADRID!!!

http://espnfc.com/news/story/_/id/15...lenew1&cc=5901

"I am not sure there is ever a good time to leave a club where I felt settled and was playing the best football of my career to date. I know many players talk of their desire to join the club of their boyhood dreams, but I can honestly say, this is my dream come true.

"I am well aware that I would not be at the level I am today were it not for firstly Southampton and then Spurs standing by me during some of the tougher times and affording me the environment and support they have.

"Tottenham will always be in my heart and I'm sure that this season will be a successful one for them. I am now looking forward to the next exciting chapter in my life, playing football for Real Madrid."

After establishing himself as the fulcrum of the Tottenham team in recent years, the Wales winger had become one of the most coveted players in the game.

Bale’s impressive displays for Spurs earned him PFA Footballer of the Year awards in 2011 and 2013, with his final season at White Hart Lane yielding 21 goals in 34 Premier League games.

He is the first British player to sign for Los Blancos since Jonathan Woodgate nine years ago and the first ever Welshman to play for the club.

What do you mean by best club in the world?

In terms of success or value?

Manchester United is the most valuable sports franchise in the world according to Forbes.

That would be incorrect. Man U was surpassed this past year.

United had the greater value in 6 of the last 7 seasons. Don't confuse Kaka with things like facts.

My mistake.
Hadn't seen the most recent ones.

Oh and now with the Bale signing, Ozil to Arsenal.

And here's the proof you need that Madrid are clueless. They get Bale but then give up the player that makes this team go and a huge leader - Ozil.

I said before that there is something wrong with Madrid and it's the reason they don't win much. This move to send Ozil to Arsenal has baffled players, fans, and some in management. Madrid is a joke and I will state it right now - they won't win a real trophy this year. They are truly clueless. Even Mourinho couldn't win there and the team fell apart at the end.

Anyone who thinks everything is right at Madrid can't see the forest for the trees.

As a Madrid fan I can tell you, Ozil is a great player but not as great at some people think. He dissapeared in a lot of important games.

We got Isco now who is younger and is dominating in that position.

Im not surprised that Ozil left, somebody had to and Ill rather keep DiMaria.

Hoping Benzema is next, yes great players that are simply not good enough for giants like Madrid.

Ozil is a much better player than Xavi Alonso. He was junk with Liverpool.

Alonso is a defensive mid, Ozil is a playmaker, he had to fill big shoes such as Zidanes and Figos...

At Madrid being great isnt enough, you have to get things done...


Robben and Schneider left the team, they were better players than Ozil.

Nothing much has gotten done at Madrid in about 15 years, you should be used to it...

too worried about making money...

No way Bale is worth the money they paid, its all about firing back at epl thats trying to buy the spanish audience as well, is a horse race between Spain and English football for revenue ratings.

Obviously the Barcelona of Guardiola was too good, so was Bayern last year, they are more worried about winning.

Madrid still has a shot, we just have to see how clever Carleto is going to be.

I like Madrid but Im not a blind fan who will take a punch for the team. It is what is, they are worried about making money more than winning.

With the money they spent on Bale we could have gone for a good center back or a better striker than Benzema, Aguero for example...

It will be interesting to see what happens, we still dont have a good finisher and our bench is weak.

I understand the hype for Isco. However, I am alluding to the stupidity at Madrid. Again, I think this points to something being wrong at Madrid. Yes, they can win La Liga but watch them play and often times you have to scratch your head at their inconsistency, especially with their talent. Something isn't right with them and this move is just another example of the dumb things they do that make this team cursed or just horribly managed.

Mistakes after mistakes, we started when we let Capello go, possibly the best coach of all times.

Letting Robben and Scheiner go was so dumb, no to mention Makelele.

Getting Bale is good, Ozil... well he wasnt that great...

What is really wrong with it is the type of money they spent on Bale, that is just crazy, but that is how marketing works, when we paid that type of money for Ronaldo, Ronaldo was the best in the world, Bale is prob top 10, not even top 5... again, is just marketing, hoping Bale will do good, I dont expect him to do great things, I know he is not that good but he does have a lot of potential.

Again, if you are a Chelsea or ManCity fan, you cant really criticize Madrid, they have spend a lot of money and won very little. Chelsea won the champions league with a miracle when they actually started spending money more wisely.

Only time will tell if Madrid spent that money wisely. Ronaldo is worth the 80mil, Kaka didnt deliver due to his injury, that was a big mistake, so was Benzema.
