    Most of the legends are graded like that. The Likes of Pele and Maradonna turned it on at World Cups. Add R9 to the list also. Even though he was injured 80% of the time. I like to think of it being the way, Women's football is now. You only ever seen mass coverage of the Women's World Cup. Nobody seems to care about club-level football.

    I cant believe you guys are actually thinking Bale is comparable to Zidane in anyway. You are all maniacs
    Zidane overall is obviously way above most people, but Bale has achieved just as much as a Real Madrid player.

    They both have defining moments for Madrid, but arguably both were performing at a higher level prior to landing in Spain.

    Yeah but so has someone like Benzema, for instance, and you still wouldn't say his name in the same breath as Zidanes.

    I think the problem with the Bale thing isn't necessarily that RM/Zidane are wrong for wanting rid, more that Zidane is seemingly being so disrespectful about it despite what Bale has contributed to the club, whether or not he was a focal point of that or not.

    That being said, much like Zidane time will be much better to Bale I think. I'd honestly like to see him go to the Bundesliga or something but it seems China will be his only saving grace w/r/t his wages.

    Bale is in a strong position though for his own pockets. Real need to pay him to fuck off.

    I can't see any reason why Bale would go to China. He already earns insane money and has an incredible life in Spain, even for double what he's on I can't imagine he wants to go breathe smog in China.

    I read they are going to double his wages. Rich people just want to carry on getting richer, he will have an incredible quality of life wherever he lives at this point in his career.

    Hold on, Ronaldo was the most unbelievable forward even at the end when he was ballooned and broken. He was absolutely unplayable.

    I was devastated when he missed out on the 2010 World Cup. As for 7 vs 9, they still have different roles to me. Cristiano still feels like a wandering winger that bangs the goals in. I don't recall seeing them whilst Ronaldo was around.

    Don't Real do a weird thing (or maybe not weird) where they take control of all image rights etc in exchange for the fat wage (thus making their wages seem somewhat disproportionately higher)? Which makes it extra lol.

    Dani Ceballos loan to Arsenal seems done. It seems like a good loan move and all, but I don't really exactly see how he is that necessary for Arsenal. I suppose he'll compete with Ozil for the no 10 role?

    Arsenal really should just focus all their efforts on getting defenders.

    Thats not the Arsenal way. Buy more attackers like Zaha and them. FEC 2.0 has returned from injury and he is arsenal best defender and like a new signing.

    Denis Suarez from Barca. For all intents and purposes, he looks like the exact same player as this Ceballos.

    Mind you, I read somewhere that that Suarez basically had a massive injury going on the whole loan spell and wasn't really able to run, so I guess he never even had a chance.

    Yeah, basically being a bit daft. Who is FEC? And is 2.0 supposed to be Holding? Cause he'll be OK but it'll take at least half a season for him and Bellerin to get back into some sort of decent form I reckon, after those injuries you just don't step back on it as if nothing happened. Besides, it's not as if they are exactly world class defenders, they are just better than Kolasinac and Mustafi

    phonics seems to think Holding will good enough to lead Arsenal to glory.

    Im giving Holding the tag of FEC 2.0. Who else is a better fit?

    Ah I see.

    Yeah Holdings is alright but not amazing or anything, I think. We'll see I guess. Phil Jones feels like a very different kind of defender, but I guess they are a bit comparable in a way. Though to me Holding feels more like a poor mans John Stones.

    Surely FEC 2.0 would just be FFEC. A bit like all the new Maradonas.

    Bale scored in most of the trophy winning finals, no? Winning goals too. I believe that matters if you're looking at ZZ's 'legacy'.

    Some outrageous claims in this thread about (the real) Ronaldo and Zidane. If you’re regarding these two as anything less than in the bracket of some the greatest players of our time then take your face for a shit.
