Meh. Our academies here are just fine at development, the problem is many can not afford to do them because the best still have to pay. In Europe some have to pay for the academies, but the best(such as this kid) have all expenses paid. That is what we need with our academies. Because right now, they are pretty much for those who can afford it, with very few exceptions.

While Bale is a great player, I don't think he is the best player in the EPL, let alone Europe. Real Madrid overpaid big time.
Curious to know who you think he is better in the EPL. Bale took an otherwise slightly average Tottenham team and took them to the brink of the Champions League. He Baled them out time and time again with often breathtaking, spectacular goals, many times out of absolutely nothing. There was a stretch, before he got injured, where he was not only the best player in England, but the best player in the world not named Messi or Ronaldo. He was just willing Tottenham to victories.

There is a reason he was named the top player (MVP) of the EPL. He was nails all season long.

As far as Real overpaying, you're right, but that is true all over the world. There is a saying in soccer that rings true: It is OK to overspend for elite talent, but it is financial suicide to overspend for mediocre talent. In other words, it's OK for Barca to spend 30 million a year for Messi, but not OK for a club like Malaga to spend 14 million a year on a player like David Villa, if that makes sense. With Messi, you are spending too much but you are also getting supreme play and championships and jersey royalties and brand recognition throughout the world and everything else. With a player like Villa, you are getting slightly above average play but killing the rest of your finances at the same time.

Last year in the EPL, as much as I hate to admit it, I have to say the best player was RVP. 56 goals in the past two years in the Premiership? That's asinine, haha. I could easily make the argument as well for Juan Mata, Eden Hazard(probably hasn't done enough yet) and my homer pick of Sergio Aguero.

Bale is a stud. There is no denying that obviously. I just don't think Real should give up 4 players or pay a record transfer fee for one player. I have seen a deal where it was Coentrao, Di Maria, and Modric plus some money for Bale. Is that really an addition for Madrid, giving up so much?

I do get what you are saying, though. Clubs everywhere are overpaying. Look at Monaco and PSG in a league that really top to bottom is not that great. Are people going to go out and buy Falcao Monaco jerseys in countries outside of France and Colombia? Highly doubtful.

Question for you LA because you follow La Liga much closer than I do. Is there any club outside of Real Madrid and Barcelona that has the financial means to compete for a league title? Valencia? Atletico?

Also with the probable Bale signing(especially if Real gives up Coentrao how it has been rumored), they are completely ignoring their backline issues. That would leave them with 4 viable options but literally zero proven depth.

I need to find a good soccer forum.... LOL
