I don’t know if anybody else has noticed but Gareth Bale has had his ears pinned back.
They were very noticeable before, huge in fact, and poor Gareth must have been sick of those massive ear sticking out all the time. Probably effected his balance. Or something.
Now, it’s no secret that Bale looks a little bit like a monkey and during last weekend’s north London derby between Spurs and Arsenal a Gooner hurled a banana at the Welshman as he was preparing to take a corner.
Hilariously, the referee had to walk over to the banana which was directly in Bale’s line of sight and remove it from the pitch. He must have seen it and, let’s face it, it’s pretty bloody funny.
The authorities didn’t seem to think so, however, and they have apparently charged the fan or something to that effect.
They appear to be missing the point that this is football and opposing fans are going to give players some stick and perhaps a little verbal abuse.
Granted, this is quite an odd one but at least it is not a coin or something that could harm Bale. If he was hit on the hit head with the banana, heaven forbid, it wouldn’t have hurt him one bit. In fact, Bale would have stuck it in his pocket to eat at half-time. Probably
