  1. He has all the talent, but no ambition. People can point to all he has achieved with Real Madrid, but in all those years he was there, and the ability he has, I personally think he has underachieved, but I can respect him as a person. He's not out there trying to raise his profile and do what's expected of him. He just does whatever he wants.

  2. Craig Burley sounds like a jealous Scotsman, never heard him say anything positive about Bale or the Welsh. I imagine he'd have a different opinion on Bale if he were Scottish.
    A move to Cardiff makes sense in many ways from being close to family, working with the Wales physios on the daily and helping his home town team achieve promotion offers a different challenge as he's won everything he could at Madrid.
    As for the championship being too physical. I can tell people don't watch it much as its moved on from 10/15 years ago, most teams play a more progressive style with these foreign coaches coming in. Nobody at Cardiff would expect him to play 46 games anyway.

  3. These guys don't get it. Other than for Wales he isn't interested in playing any more.
    He'll play for Cardiff on and off until the World Cup in order to maintain a minimum fitness level. I fully expect that after the World Cup he will retire.

  4. Gareth should have joined in 2011 helping win a championship league in 2012 2014 2016 2017 2018 then leave for Bayern Munich winning a treble in 2020 then he could rest and play as much golf as he wants
