Today just a year ago I was making the dream of my life come true and I was able to meet you   (Yes... I was the first to enter the stadium)

I don’t blame him but the whole thing is a complete joke, even down to Madrid kicking off because he initially wouldn’t walk away from the massive contract they agreed with him.

You don’t blame him? He could walk into most Champion’s League squads but instead is going to waste the last few years of his prime in China. He’s already an incredibly wealthy man, it’s not like he needs the money.

Easy to say you'd happily take a 300k a week hit over a 400k increase when the choice isn't at hand. 

 

Short of dragging Wales to the latter stages of a cup he's achieved a fair whack, he could walk into those squads and some offer big money... But looks like not for him, would you want to sit beside someone on more than you that you're supposedly at the same level as, I wouldnt.

Bale doesn't really give a shit about football, it's just his job as far as he's concerned. 

 

If someone came and offered me double my salary to do my job, but easier, somewhere else I'd certainly take it. 

 

Not one of us wouldn't, especially when the other option is to be paid less to work just as hard or harder.

Yeah but say you were one of the world’s best guitarists and knew you could only play for a few more years. You’ve the choice of spending those few years selling out arenas around the world or playing small corporate gigs for a Chinese billionaire for more money, which do you choose?

Aye but that’s because I care about that, if I actually cared about playing golf then idgaf, Chinese billionaire seems fine and hey, he only wants me to play Oasis covers anyway so I don’t even have to work as hard at being a great guitarist anymore. Fantastic. 

 

You’re applying passion/emotion where there is none, Bale doesn’t care about football, he hasn’t for years.

Let's be honest, Andrew wwouldn't bother with either. Instead he'd end up pairing up with Eno to form the ultimate prog-ambient band, which would eventually lead to nothing other than the pair sitting around drinking their own piss in the search for that perfect sound.
