    Hi Dan,
    Would love to have your opinions or even an article on the unspoken side of the Gareth Bale saga. The failure of his agent Jonathan Barnett. My take on this is that there has been loads of articles on how Bale is unhappy about Levy saying he does not want him to leave to secure his dream move to Real - something he always dreamed about (although this would seemingly contradict many articles written years ago about Bale growing up as an Arsenal fan). The way I see is that Spurs have a perfectly legitimate contract and his contracts have been upgraded over the years as he has improved. So why did Barnett not have the foresight to have some buyout clauses inserted into his contract? His contract was redrawn after he won his first PFA player of the year and he was in a position of strength then to have asked for some sort of clause. This would have made all this ugly business a lot easier. Release clause set down. Real agrees to the fee. Bale goes. This saga is not the fault of Spurs really, nor in Bale (although he is behaving like a child when he earns more in one week then most people do in a year) but his agent. Barnett is meant to be this super-smart super-agent but I think he is the one at the heart of these problems.
    All the best,

    Hey Dan. I just read an article. It said a Dan Fitch branded Tottenham a "Male Teenage Virgin." I'm just wondering if that was you or another Dan Fitch.
