He's never played on the right full time. Oh yeah, Bale was a LB/LWB b4. That's good for d. I love Benz it's just this season he's been brutal. There was a winger long ago from the BPL who came to Real. He was quite popular and played on an accomplished squad. However he achieved very little at Real (in terms of trophies) and his presence would help commence a disgraceful 6 year run in Europe. What I'm saying is big moves aren't always needed especially when the squad already has a s**tload of attacking talent and a lot in the youth ranks too.

After the Treble with Spurs?
bale is a very willing and able passer. hes not robben on the right where he only cuts in and scores. he has an insane crossing ability with the outside of his left foot which makes it all the more difficult to read. with ronaldo and benz and ozil running onto those lanes to get onto the ends of those you guys will score a ton of goals off of his crosses. and thats just if hes on the right. since both he and ronaldo would play in a free role, they would interchange wings, and bales crossing from the left is one of, if not the best, in the world.

title, F.A, and europa

It's always best to have players play on their natural side although given as how Angel was a LM b4 he was at Real it's possible. Still think it'd be better if Bale were to be CR7's replacement. However, if not, there's always Reus who'd be cheaper. I'd actually prefer if neither came but unless Perez leaves more big/expensive/crazy signings will happen. Jese needs to be developed and nurtured. Hopefully he'll get minutes next season if not at Real he'll go to Leverkusen which will be great for him (on a 1-year loan). Just don't want to see more Soldado/Negredo/Mata/Borja Valero/Felipe Luis type stuff going on for Morata, Jese, Denis, etc (ie. Castilla players excelling elsewhere) It really pains me. Glad Carvajal will come back to be the starting RB and if that happens there's a good chance he's the starting RB of Espana in 2012.

I know what you meant by treble but I really hope you're not serious/that's not what you're expecting.

Ancelotti is a good pick and he can handle the ridiculous Spanish media and circus in Madrid.

Nope I was referring to Beckham. Only won two trophies at Real and in his first season real went to the UCL semis and then the next 3 seasons in the UCL were horrible.

That's good but I just really hope he doesn't try to revive Kaka at the cost of other players.

Well it looks like Negredo will be heading to Atletico. He wants to play in the UCL next season.

I think its because they had an extra prime time game. live tv is facility fees that networks pay the clubs to broadcast from their stadium.

hopefully Hummels is fit to play. more important to the team. Gotze was injured for a good part of last season. they know how to play without him.


Joao Moutinho & James Rodriguez in Monaco for their medicals, say Nice Matin. Expected to sign from Porto for around €50 million.

I wonder if Ruben Pardo will leave Real Sociedad this summer. That kid has one hell of a future but it's a shame Real Sociedad's coach is leaving for f**king Rennes.
