hey you know how I always say that while we shouldn't sign Neymar because of the cash concerns as well as Villa & Tello but we kinda should sign Neymar because of the potential omgwtfruserious football we could produce? that goes double for Bale.
I know he's a monkey-lookin' Welshman, but he has all the tools to be a phenomenal LB for us.
y'all actin' like Abidal and Adriano are Garrincha or some shit. have you seen how they attack for us? it's mostly running very fast in a straight-line while someone feeds them the ball whereupon they hit a low flat cross into the area. if you can't see how Bale fits PERFECTLY into that set-up, then I dunno what I can do for you.
yes, he'll have to get back to basics with his defending (he started as a LB, it's not like he can't defend ffs) and yes he'll have to learn to play a more restrained game, timing his runs better especially if he's in a back three, but he has ALL the raw materials - including the size & strength that pretty much no other candidate does.
