‘He’s A Bit Of A Coward On The Pitch’ – Gareth Bale Knobbled By Charlie Adam (Again) In Pre-Season Friendly

Gareth Bale has branded Charlie Adam a ‘coward’ after another dismal challenge from the orthodontically-challenged Liverpool midfielder saw his Tottenham counterpart leaving the stadium in Baltimore on crutches.

Of course, this isn’t the first time Adam has butchered Bale with a malicious tackle, with a frankly disgusting challenge back in 2011 – while Adam was still at Blackpool – bringing Bale’s season to a premature conclusion and putting him out of action for the best part of three months…

Here’s what Bale has had to say on the matter:

“I was surprised to see a challenge like that in a friendly. We are over here to build up our fitness and get a good workout. But what he did was over the top. Some people are like that and it’s just wrong.

“It’s flattering if players try to take you out in a game but when it threatens your career it becomes more serious.”

“There are pictures on the internet of what he did before when he snapped all my ankle ligaments. I was out for three months that time and one player told me he went out to do the same thing to me again. He’s come for me twice now – and he’s got me twice.

“From what I’ve seen of him on pitch, I think he’s a bit of a coward. I haven’t had an apology from him or anything like that. But I don’t really want one from him, to be honest.

“That’s what kind of person he is like. He’s done it before. I’m not going to accept his apology.”

For the record, Bale actually continued playing and made it to half-time before being substituted so the injuries sustained couldn’t have been overly serious – not that that excuses Adam for his deliberate attempt to once again do the Welshman an extreme physical discourtesy in an utterly meaningless friendly.

Did Bale piss on his kids on Christmas Day or something?

    ‘Orthodontically challenged’ – love it!

    I hate that prick Adam, he can hit a sweet free kick but that’s about all

  4. LFCBABY says:

    @TD great comment lol

    Bale is a diver!! complains all the time.

    The guy got injured from driving a car! So he had a great game against inter milan get over it.

    adam’s scum, ugly fucker too.

  6. Professor Erno Breastpinchd says:

    Anyone who celebrates scoring by making a love heart with his hands deserves to be on crutches.

    Maybe if he was at the Olympics this wouldn’t have happened…

    @LFCBABY, don’t play up to the stereotype of Liverpool fans being completely delusional. It was a shocking tackle and so was the one last season, Adam’s cheating scum. If Bale played for Liverpool you’d be defending him to the end against diving comments [see Suarez] but he doesn’t, because he’s top four quality, not mid-table tier.

    Embarassed to be a pool fan right now, cringing looking at some of the comments.
    @ LFCBABY: you obviously don’t watch football…I would f*cking love it if he came to us, the lad is quality, you wouldn’t? (Guess you would rather watch Downing!)
    @ Professor Erno Breastpinchd: you don’t deserve to have the internet as you don’t have the intelligence to use it you idiot!

    Regardless of your feelings towards Bale (which I assuredly second), the tackle – which by the way is the central theme of this post, way to go thick ones – is horrendous. There is absolutely no attempt to play the ball, and similar to the prior cynical tackle by the Scot hints at intentional and deliberate injury-inflicting motives. This kind of shit should be punished as opposed to the FA mucking about with worthless fines and legal suits.

    i AM SO SICK OF THESE CRY BABY, DIVING, OVER PAID KIDS.

    IF YOU LOOK VERY CLOSELY HE GOT THE TOP OF THE FRONT OF THE BOOT.

    HOW DOES THAT CONSTITUTE THE ROLLING AROUND, HANDS OVER HIS EYES PERFORMANCE. ( PSS OFF TO SPAIN OR ITALY ).

  14. Jack says:

    @AL: go & have a lie down mate (& maybe learn how to spell?), if you look closely…you will realise that you are a complete tool (& the caps lock only makes you look slightly more retarded). Just because you are writing an anonymous comment behind a username doesn’t mean you can write complete b*llocks. You know the way family members (obviously not friends…let’s be honest you don’t have any you bitter little idiot) are constantly berating you for talking nonsense when you are around them…well this is why!
