Let's not jump the gun yet. Still a chance they might never play together.

Meh.... it's done. Even the Spurs' directors are starting to make explanatory remarks in the media as to why they would sell Bale and he's been removed from all their online media covers.

We can comfortable jump the gun on this one.

Going to make a Suarez and Giroud thread soon too Laughing

While ignoring the sheer obvious fact, while I see this as a tactical conundrum, I think what would be affected the most is Benzema. In fact, Bale and CR can work, it's not in the realms of the impossible but Benzema would be the one getting the shaft.

Not that I'm a fan of the French goat but I personally think he should be given (another) chance to show his true worth.

Suarez and Santi would most likely work quite well, no real hiccups. CR and Bale, however, sigh.

One of them is going to have a reduced role(most likely Bale) which in turn is going to reduce their effectiveness too.

Either we discuss it in the Arsenal section, or we can do it in the PL thread in here. Or there are many other threads such as appreciation threads etc.

I don't see the point of having a thread for every partnership. Ibra n Cavani, I'll let it go since we don't have a section for PSG anymore so it's fine.

Bale n CR7 because we have Messi and Neymar. It evens out.

If we do sign him, whenever there's a free kick, Bale will stand towards the right with his Ronaldo free kick body style, with Ronaldo on the left.

Bale should take free kicks. He's better.

That is, IF he moves to Madrid.

With this partnership they'll never get to the box before taking a shot Laughing

the tantrum Ronaldo will throw if he can't have his free kicks, despite being on the right or left side.

I think that, if we're looking at this

Modric-Illaramendi
Ozil-Isco-Bale
CR7

We're looking at another Galactico era Laughing Ozil won't stay wide.  Neither will Bale.  Modric likes to run in the middle...  and to boot, Marcelo likes to cut in too.

It's like Chelsea last year with Hazard-Mata-Oscar...  you can't play so many guys with similar profiles.  They wind up taking turns doing their thing as opposed to doing it together.

CR7 and Bale are basically going to take turns.  So are Isco, Ozil and Modric.  I actually like Khedira better than Illaramendi at this point... but whoever it is, he can't do all the ball recovery alone ffs.

Illarmendi hasn't been able to perform at all so I might even go as far and say Casemiro over Kheidra

Whats wrong with him?

On this subject, are they really going to move Cristiano to striker? He really really doesnt like that. He hated it with Portgual, you can see him on the pitch distraught that he isnt getting enough touches of the ball.

Bale as in individual is a good signing for Madrid (not at that cost but whatever, its nothing to them) but how he fits the jigsaw is another question. I think the guys in midfield and at the back will really have to perform because those forward players, Bale included, really arent the most defensive concious. The last 6 months of Bale, I see a player who thinks he made it and doesnt have to track back...which used to be a great asset of his.

Maybe it was AVB telling him not to, I understand coaches like to do this sometimes...but at Madrid, I think he will have to find that desire back because for all Di Maria's faults, he would never cheat you for effort.

Illaramendi has fatigue problems... whatever that means. But they shut him down mostly until he got his energy back.
