    Yep. Whatever happened to that Shearer character. One hat trick on his debut and never heard off again.

    Conversely, I'd say Bale has utterly wasted his potential. Should have been the next contender for GOAT... But in reality he settled as a borderline peripheral figure at Real, constantly on the edge of manager/fan favouritism. Such a waste from a player who was more unplayable that Prime VVD.

    On top of that, what do you think players like VVD, Mane, Lallana, Shearer, Bridge etc etc have done with their careers...?

    VVD and Mane were not products of our academy.

    Im sure Bale will look back on his 7 years at the worlds biggest club, 4 champions league medals, 3 world club cup medals, la liga medal and what is likely to be over 100 international caps and think he's wasted his potential

    Conversely they could have put out a video saying we are really ****, so don’t join our academy, but then that would have defeated the purpose.
