Arteta and Merte for sure, but Ramsey? He got stripped from captaining Wales, no? Wilshire seems to have a lot more authority than Ramsey in the team. Mertesacker is a gentle Giant, IMO for captaincy, but he is German afterall.

Allegedly. The fee has not been disclosed, there is just speculation on it being 100 Million Euros.

a one footed player that had one brilliant season.

Bale also doesn't start to perform until after Christmas. He's not consistent like Ronaldo and Messi.

Hilarious! He was player of the year twice. He is a superb player anyone who says different has no clue about this game. Overpriced? Maybe. Overrated? Definitely not.

Wonder how long it will take Bale to learn Spanish. Luckily Carlo speaks fluent English.
