Can Gareth Bale's form for Wales follow him back to Real Madrid?

ESPN FC's Sid Lowe explains why Gareth Bale has been an 'easy target' for the Spanish media and why he hasn't been able to produce for Real Madrid like he does with Wales.

If Gareth Bale didn't already realise just how fickle the Spanish press can be, he certainly should do when he reports back from international duty to line up for Real Madrid in La Liga against Granada on Sunday lunchtime.

Bale left Spain to join-up with Chris Coleman's Wales squad just hours after being on the end of some heavy criticism from the Spanish press. "Another big night where Bale goes missing" hissed Marca. "Bale failed again," slammed AS, before adding that "he went unnoticed" in the...

Real Madrid's Champions League title last May was Carlo Ancelotti's third as a manager.
Real Madrid's Champions League title last May was Carlo Ancelotti's third as a manager.

It wasn't exactly a new scenario for Carlo Ancelotti, so he pointed to an old excuse. Real Madrid had just been beaten 2-1 by Barcelona in the latest Clasico, leaving the Italian again looking up at another leader in a title race, and he duly deflected by pointing to the quality of the display and competitions beyond the domestic front.

"We are disappointed, but it is better to have better feeling in the way we played," Ancelotti said. "We can have more confidence in the future games in the...

Real Madrid star Gareth Bale owns NBA half-court challenge: 3 out of 5

Real Madrid star Gareth Bale show's he's not just potent in front of goal, as he took the NBA's challenge.

Gareth Bale is good at football, but it appears that if he ever decides to leave the game behind he can step right into the NBA.

The Welshman, who cost Real Madrid a world-record €100 million ($132m) when he joined from Tottenham in 2013, took the NBA's official half-court challenge and managed to sink three out of his five efforts. Nothing but net either!

Miami have been looking for a replacement for LeBron James, so perhaps they should sign up LeBale before someone else does.

Danilo signing is further proof of Real Madrid's investment in youth talent

ESPN FC's Sid Lowe responds to Gareth Bale's importance to Real Madrid, and where exactly he fits in.
Danilo is another talented young player who could keep Real Madrid contending for trophies in the long term.

Real Madrid's capture of Danilo from Porto, which was confirmed in a brief statement on the club's official website on Wednesday, continues a recent trend by the Bernabeu of snapping up talented youngsters that is completely at odds with Florentino Perez's policy during his first tenure.

The Brazilian full-back was one of the most sought-after players in European football and Real have stolen a considerable march on their European rivals by acquiring his services for a reported price of 31.5...

Real Madrid's Gareth Bale and Luka Modric will benefit from 'FIFA virus'

The FC team discuss whether Gareth Bale should stick it out at Real Madrid or head back to the Premier League.

Major tournaments aside, any international break in Spain is likened to an illness. The "FIFA virus", they call it. Gone are the days when international call-ups were celebrated as an achievement. Now clubs, those who pay the players' wages, are wary that key men can pick up injuries putting their efforts into the success of their respective country.

All major clubs suffer from the "virus" and Real Madrid are no exception. With 17 first-team players called up to represent their countries this week,...
