Jeff Stelling is the well liked face of Gillette Soccer Special and a person applauded for facillitating a large number of boring pundits. He should probably stay within that realm. Stelling had his serious sports columnist hat on today and wrote an article saying Gareth Bale is a better player than Cristiano Ronaldo. Hold on, it gets better.
I think it's got to the stage where you can say that Bale is better than Ronaldo because he's simply unplayable.
That's not to denigrate Ronaldo, who has got all the tricks and dynamite in his boots - but so has Bale.
What Bale's got that Ronaldo hasn't is incredible strength and power; Ronaldo is quick but when Bale gets up a head of steam, there's no stopping him.
Ronaldo hasn't got power and strength? Maybe Stelling accidentally swapped their names throughout the article. That's really the only explanation, isn't it?
