Well, the Sale or Bale saga goes on and on and on.
I maybe in the minority here, and i am sure some will not agree with me, but before you all write and castigate what i am saying, just think and count to 10 before having a go.
I am suggesting we let Bale go to Real Madrid.
Yes, there is no doubt he is one of the top 3 or 4 players in the world at the moment, Yes he has so much to offer, and Yes we would miss him (as supporters).
But the point i am making here, is ‘do we really need him’. Firstly, if he stays and he is not happy, will he be the player he was last season. Secondly, if he stays, we are going to have to go through all this again, probably in January in the next window, and then again next April.
All that would happen is that it will affect the club in a big way, and we could once again find ourselves finding more problems off the pitch which will affect on the pitch – which has done with the Redknapp tax affair, Modric, Spagettigate, Fabrice Muamba, etc etc.
Also, look at it another way. We relied on Bale so much last season, and we should’nt have to rely so much on one player. We need a ‘TEAM’ not just one world class player. Bale is a world class player, yet even with him we still could’nt get into the Champions League.
Arsenal do not have any world class players, yet season after season they qualify for the Champions League because as a Team they just play as one.
If we get say £80M for Bale, we could then strengthen the team with 2 or 3 world class signings (if they will come of course), but with a ‘Team’ we may have more chance of getting into the top 4, rather than having one world class player yet we still struggle to get into that top 4 slot.
So, yes i would be very sorry to see Bale go, but at the end of the day, the money we get for him could be a blessing in disguise.
But the one thing i think is most important, lets sort it out one way or other in the next week or so, lets not go into the season still wondering whats happening, otherwise with all that going on behind the scenes, we may blow our chances of top 4 in the first couple of weeks of the season. Lets not have this hanging around our necks at the start of the season.
