  6. Bale will strain is calf muscles for half the season. It happens every year. That or his hips, growing, hamstring, or quad. You cannot depend on him.

  9. Shit!!! Look at those numbers. God dumn this dude is a scoring machine. I love madrid just like the next guy but Bale ain't scoring those number even when he first got in Madrid with a burst of excitement. What I do admit is that Bale can surprise us with some great goal sometime that can be replayed over and over again. If Bale can get that chemistry with Benzema and Marcelo like Cristiano had then he could score a good 25+ goals.

    Also, the pressure might get to Bale too. Cause if he doesn't pull those numbers up …. the Media is gonna destroy him and keep comparing him to Ronaldo stats and what Cristiano brought to the club.

  10. Thats because Ronaldo took it upon himself to take shots where easier routes where available. Real Madrid is gonna rely on each other now so everyone is gonna be scoring.

  11. Nobody cares about Real Madrid. Finished club. RM are irrelevant since Penaldo left. Barca will dominate La Liga and Champions League for the next 5+ years straight. Can't wait to see RM become the Spanish Arsenal or AC Milan !!

  15. He will probably score 70 goals in Italy because they have a weaker defence I think

  16. Bias Real ESPN Madrid … this is not being critical at all !! Stop glorifying fuckin real madrid

  17. I still dont understand why Real wont buy another striker. Benzema isnt enough!

    Reply
  18. I don't see it…so when Bale wasn't relied upon as much when Ronaldo was leading the line, he'd get injured constantly, now that he is needed for the entire season as a focal point of the team, he won't get injured?

    The guy has been injury prone since he arrived at Real Madrid.

    If he makes it past December without an injury, I'll be surprised.

  19. Real Madrid is going down from now on.

  20. Asensio wills stay fit longer than Bale; I think he will be the leading goalscorer in 18-19. Not near CR7 numbers with his assist mentality but he will bang them in. RM will have to learn to share the workload for goal production rather than relying on CR7 to produce solo efforts. I think this aspect will expose their weaknesses and force the manager to actually create teamsheets with a purpose rather than name power. Maybe involve some youngsters. Will be an interesting season.

  21. My problem with Bale is consistency. This characteristic is what makes Ronaldo and Messi so great, over ten years on the top with no one coming close. There have been great players like Ronaldinho or Ronaldo Nazario but they played on top level for three seasons at best.
    For me only Pelé had the consistency of Ronaldo and Messi.

  22. Why is messi on the list of top 3 forwards?ESPNFC plss explain if you are not messi biased media

  23. No I want Real Madrid to sign a striker

    Reply
  24. I’m not going to Support them anymore unless they sign a striker

  25. Real don't have a goal scoring number 9, and that is a problem. They could play Asensio/Bale down the middle, Isco one side so he can start assuming Modric/Casemiro/Kroos midfield remains unchanged. I get that Benzema is good at build up play and passing, but they need goals not assists now without Ronaldo.

  26. Courtois was such a waste of money also, navas is perfectly capable and was a loyal servant to the club. Hope he doesn't get ousted like Casillas, I am still ashamed of how he was pushed out.
