To me Gale's a typical example of an American youth player that people make excuse after excuse for. [Freddy Adu being the best example of this.] Gale's problems now are 99% a result of Gale not putting in the work, Gale not having the work ethic, and Gale frankly not being good enough. It was GALE'S CHOICE to go with Traffic!!! We all know the deal with 3rd party ownership. It severely limits your opportunities because most clubs in Europe don't want to deal with that mess. (in fact, I think that after that Tevez-Mascherano mess, it's not allowed in England at all) Then people will make the excuse of "Gale's a kid and didn't know that." Nonsense. Gale had an offer on the table from MLS this past year..................and still chose to play for the Carolina Railhawks, a midtable NASL team. Somebody explain that to me. Who decides to play for Coventry when an offer is on the table with Fulham? We all know what's going to happen. He's going to end up in MLS next year anyway. (or a league worse than MLS) So it was yet another year of self-imposed purgatory.
