I think paying 100m for someone who scored the winner against Barca in the Spanish cup to win it and also scored the crucial goal in the first of his CL wins and then went on to score the greatest CL goal of all time and then scored another to seal the win against Liverpool for another CL win is pretty good going. That’s worth 100m imo. 

But then again your club are the most spoiled awful club going behind the oil clubs. Never seen such an awful set of fans in my life. Why the fuck anyone would want to join Madrid is beyond me. 

Money talks unfortunately. The problem with Bale is he was bought in to eventually replace Ronaldo, it's unrealistic expectations.

Ronaldo is a freak, he's made himself one of the greatest of all time through hardwork and commitment. He hasn't got the natural ability of Messi but it's a credit to him that he even competed with him for the Balon d'Or so often. 

Any player that is bought in to be the "New" star is always put under too much scrutiny and unfairly compared to them. 

Bale is a great player, if you can't see that then you are living in cloud cuckoo.

Now they'll replace Bale with Hazard!  

i like Bale, he's racked up alot of games (and goals) despite those injuries. We have a gaping hole at RW that we desperately need filled with a world class player. I think its dumb to compare him to Sanchez - people act like every player we've bought around 30yo and maybe injury prone has been a failure - just look at RVP, Larson, Ibra, Sheringham etc. For around the 50m price i would take him. However, i do think the days of United signing 30 year old's are over - but Bale might be an exception if we can get rid of Sanchez in the summer.

100%. We just need someone for the time being. Sancho would be great but he would stop Greenwood potentially coming through. I’d rather we went for a 28/29 year old RW and bring Greenwood through

Classic, the plastic Greek Real Madrid fan turns up when there is a bit of good news, standard.

Lol i haven't been posting in general. I come in this thread from time to time though don't be a dick for no reason. I don't remember coming here posting neither one of the three times the last three years when we actually won the ucl. You think I wasn't happy back then? Don't be jealous of a club being healthy and having success unlike any other club ever in a span of 5 years.

I understand you may haven't watched the news as close but over the last years Bale has created problems in the club with his behavior and that's unacceptable. Plus Real Madrid is the biggest club in the world(or 2nd biggest to some of you whatever I don't wanna argue this again) no player-coach-person is above the team. I can't understand why you guys don't get it but it's okay. You may think like all madrid fans are stupid kids that became fans because of the success of the last 5 years which is true to some extend but please I was watching the games when we were getting beaten up from Lyon in the final 16 like this year from ajax :lol:

Yeah agree mate, Sancho would be amazing - but he would cost a fortune and he's only just signed for Dortmund. Bale is still world class and Greenwood would be a good understudy.

i have to say - it is pretty weird that you only show up when something good happens a Real Madrid. Literally the next day or something! I don't really care - (who am i to tell you when to post) but it is strangely coincidental.

Anyone fancy Juve to turn it around tonight? I’ve got a sneaky feeling Lyon will knock Barca out tomorrow too

It's probably when you guys actually discuss something about real madrid usually. Do I have more than like 10-15 posts on this thread? I don't think so. I love football and have been watching for years like you guys and I understand as most of you if not all of you are from Britain wanna discuss about premier league. Which is fine by me it's the best football league in the world so I don't wanna come here and be like "yeah guys last match against Leganes, casemiro didn't show up he really must do something for his effort on the pitch" when you clearly don't watch or care about that :lol:

I don't really mind to be honest - there's still the Champions League to talk about. Most of us are pretty clued up on the big leagues. 

Do you not watch the English league then? I watch a bit of La Liga, used to watch alot of it.

I watch the important games tbh and like the headlines of whats going on with the other "smaller" teams. Always been a fan of Liverpool after that historic comeback against Milan but I was so happy for Drogba getting that champions league he deserved with Chelsea. Also there was that discussion here as to what was the biggest accomplishment, Greece winning euro 04 or Leicester the premier league. I kinda believe Leicester's accomplishment is harder to actually do since it's a whole damn season of teams coached and ready to compete for the championship but the euro thing is more historic since it's supposed to be a "greater" cup.

Haha come on even Ligue 1 or seria a? La Liga isn't that interesting though since the two and now three good teams are so much better than anybody else and also Madrid haven't been able to be competitive for the biggest part of the decade so... Plus the refereeing is too soft and the three big teams always get the calls agains every smaller team it's ridiculous.

I try to watch a bit of everything really - the Italian league is much better now, much more physical and quicker and VAR adds a bit of excitement. La Liga is decent - i like watching teams like Bilboa and Sevilla outside of the big teams. As i've got older, its alot harder to watch games now with work/relationship commitments etc - my knowledge on players has dropped significantly over the last few years. I always watch United games games though - i used to go to or watch alot of United U23 games - but i don't anymore, its just harder to follow the other leagues. It doesn't really bother me that some of the leagues are only won by one or two teams each year. I like watching Napoli or Sevilla or Hoffenhein for example.

I can’t be bothered with the head work of streaming. I’d rather just pay and have a guaranteed great picture

i hate how hard it is to watch football from foreign countries. I could get Sky Germany and Sky italy here in Switzerland which would cost me a fortune a month.

I wouldn't even be able to watch Premiere League here, even if i was willing to pay them. So i got a IPTV deal online which i can load directly on my TV. 12000 Channels, al of Sky Sports, DAZN and much more. Also the porn is great.

i pay like 60£ a year and so far it hasn't let me down once, i can really recommend this
