    Or even 5k a week; that's a fortune for most people. And at the same time come and play for us; the guy would become a hero.

    Indeed , he doesn't need the money and he certainly doesn't need 650 k a week

    Hes 31 , imagine a cardiff lad returning to his home town club , one or the worlds most exciting players and turning so many young people and kids in south wales bluebirds mad


    It was embarrassing to see all those spurs idiots welcoming him " home " , singing " he was born to play for spurs "

    He was born in cardiff you idiots

    Hes ours and I hope hecshines for Wales at next years euros and he sticks it in your English net and joins city next season

    See around the 1 minute mark. And his uncle Chris rattled a load in for us in the late 80’s/early 90’s.

    So In my book that makes him a thoroughbred bluebird.

    I think fire is being directed at the wrong targets here.

    It is those who have accumulated wealth by luck or birth who deserve your ire.

    I'm not sure it's on UK Netflix yet but when it is can I suggest "Capital in the C21st".

    If you go past the 1 minute mark he talks about how he supported Arsenal as a kid. Whether he went along to Cardiff games as a kid is irrelevant to my point, claiming him as "ours" when he was developed by Southampton/Spurs is strange behaviour.

    If you watch the link below the first shirt they pull out is a cardiff city shirt . Bale says he had the shirt as a youngster as he is from cardiff , they are his local club his uncle was a big fan and used to take him and he is always interested in how we are doing and always follows our results

    Oh dear

    Do you want to get a ladder to help you climb out of a rather silly little hole you have dug yourself ?

    You have shit in your own pants you plum

    Hes cardiff born , his uncle took him to watch cardiff as a kid , in a cardiff shirt , like a lot of young kids he watched premiership football he never supported arsenal he just liked the way they played then he was hooked on Ryan giggs etc , young kids are like that

    Cardiff is where he was born , his uncle played for city , he used to go to watch cardiff in a cardiff shirt

    Hes a son of cardiff , hes welsh , his uncle used to play for city , he watched us as a youngster , if he ended his career with us it would be a sort of homecoming . Close to family and friends . Playing for the team his uncle played for .

    You can wriggle your way out of this cock up as much as you want with silly smiles but you are a grown man and you should just say fair enough

    Everyone makes a tit of themselves now and then , I have made an art of it .

    bale going to cardiff city in a city shirt with his uncle and his uncle being a bluebird and bale saying hes from cardiff and city are his hometown club and he always follows how we are doing are irrelevant to your point in your mind because you know they prove you have been done like a kipper

    Move , we all put our foot in it

    Have a good Sunday

    Re: Gareth Bale , Obscene Wages

    It would be the same as when Bellers came to play for us. If he played for us he would have that edge that comes from representing your friends, family and Welsh/Cardiff fans.

    Re: Gareth Bale , Obscene Wages

    Gareth Bale, a 31 year old who's still one of the best 30 players in the world should come and play for us in the Championship because he's from here? F**ks sakes get a grip

    sludge I get the impression sometimes that you are just jealous of anyone who is rich or earns a lot of money. you think it is "unfair".
    But if someone like Bale gave his money away he wouldn't make anyone particularly richer he'd just make himself poorer. It's nonsense.

    You think you're on the side of the 'common man' but most of the people you espouse to defend,, given the opportunity, would take every penny offered to them and not give a shit about anyone else
    It's time you took the rose coloured specs off.

    Unbefuuckinglievable thing to say!

    Gladys is dead. Dead from hyperthermia. Found frozen to her rocking chair encrusted in ice like a lone pea found in an undefrosted freezer shelf.

    Bale killed her.

    Nice genuine guy , supremely talented

    But this sort of money means that the premier league just doesn't really give a ****

    What a disgrace
    Didn't Spurs apply for a £ 175 million loan , cut staff pay, and put others on Furlough , glad the tax payers dosh was there to help these stricken clubs.

    I think that's arse

    I live in a wealthy area

    A bloke from the bridgend outreach team came to sort out our broadband the other day . He was about late twenties and came from a rough area of bridgend , wildmill. He used to play football football for the school team against the school team i played for which was a working class area of bridgend but our school was not full of hard knocks .

    Lot of poverty , drugs , ill health in wildmill , free school meals , breakfast clubs

    But a lot of good people who certainly would accept help , as he did as a youngster and certainly do give a shit about other people .

    He was a city fan , he couldnt make it week in week out as he and his girlfriend who he was in school with were saving up to buy a house . He was at our place for two hours sorting out the fault . Had a great chat , had about four cups of tea , said talk talk will probably try and say you need a new router but there is no need , its taken me two hours to find this fault but its sorted now .

    I said you have spent two hours here , you are a city fan , you have sorted out our Internet without another couple of days hanging around heres a little bit of cash , I gave him 50 quid , to go towards your new house or take your girlfriend out for a meal , stop her nagging you

    He said that's really kind of you but I am unable to accept that , its just the way it is .

    I reckon if people who needed a hand up , help with their bills , were struggling for money, paying heating bills , saving to buy a house couldn't give a shit for anyone else were offered 50 quid as a thank you he would have grabbed the money and run ?

    But he didn't, we had another cup of tea and he said it was nice to work for people who were polite , able to make conversation , offered cups of tea etc

    He said he enjoyed his job but where I lived was one of the worst areas to work , people here would complain if you were half an hour late , not chat , keep saying how long is this going to take , I have got to get back online now ! , I am paying talktalk, bt, sky, blah blah blah a lot of money .......he works for open reach not talktalk, bt, sky etc ......etc etc , the wealthy areas , the people with money are the worst mate , I go to Cefn glas , Litchard , bryntirion , sarn , nantymoel , Ogmore......Big cardiff city areas , buses run from the oak for away trips.....i enjoy it ......but laleston, st brides , merthyr Mawr Road, corntown, Ewenny, nightmare

    So clearly this young working class lad had plenty of help from social services and had a poor upbringing and far from grabbing cash off me he was a decent person who in his spare time helped others as a volunteer lifeguard . There are still some people , thank god , who give a shit about others .

    He does , Gareth bale does , but the general point is capitalism is going to have to be stopped as it will leave nothing for anyone one day .

    Nothing at all .

    And all the money in the world is useless if there is nothing .

    I thought you were a socialist but you clearly don't understand

    Capitalist society which pays a already immensely rich man 25 million pounds a year in wages whilst people living in the valleys upon whose work and toil cardiff was built sees people dying in the winter because they freeze because of a lack of money is the problem

    I thought you would understand that

    It could be Billy Hughes from Doncaster getting paid 25 million a year playing for arsenal when someone in a mining village near where he was brought up has to go to a food bank that is the problem

    Thats it from me on this thread

    Take a chill pill Sludge.

    You’ve made a couple of assumptions about me there plus I’ve already agreed with you about society’s and the football industry’s ills.

    I think you’re clutching at straws in this thread mind.

    That's a load of baloney wrapped up to sound like something great. It doesn't alter the fact that the vast majority would take anything offered and not give a shit about anyone lese.
    It's just that you Sludge, have this knack of meeting the most amazing humble people. Do they all live in your head?
    Spreading out the money won't make everyone richer it will just make a lot of people poorer and when no one is paying taxes and the like where will the money come from to support these poor downtrodden masses?
    Anyone with money or the intelligence/ nous to make money will just leave the country, just like they did in the 70's! I think it was called the brain drain wasn't it?

    If you live in a wealthy area and treat people like crap , if you live in a wealthy area and vote for lower taxes so poorer people and vulnerable people have poor services and you do nothing for the less forunate in the town by say helping out in a food bank or donating to help the aged and sit at home and go on expensive holidays and drive the fastest cars , yet still don't want some of your wealth redistributed then you do not understand what society should be .

    There you go again.
    If I earn a high wage and live in a wealthy area I should not spend my money on as good car or have a nice holiday even though I have worked hard to be able to do so. Instead I have to give my money to people who don't have any. So why don't I just not bother working my arse of to get richer and wait for someone else to support me.
    If Gareth Bale gave all his annual salary away to the poorest 50% of the population they'd get less than £1 a year each!
