We paid 20 million in wages and fees for Bale. I think he understands that he's almost in an ambassador role and that he is here to make the club a little money along the way. He seems to be having fun and reports say that he asked to be included in the squad at Marine, then played, which was pretty nice of him of him, imo. If he can contribute a few goals in the cups then I think he is doing ok.
At least when its not going right for berg etc. theyll still do a job and work whether defensivesly or going something. Bale isnt doing enough at moment going forward that he can get away with not putting the work inThe trouble with that point of view is based on current performances we'd only ever have 7 players on the field. We do at some point have to give the players a chance to turn things around. It doesn't matter whether it's the league or the cup, all games are important when we're fighting on four fronts.
