Gareth Bale Could Be Banned From Playing For Spurs; Plus More EPL News and Links

Who would have expected that last night’s draw between LA Galaxy and Tottenham Hotspur would have created so much controversy? Gareth Bale, the man who was such a centerpiece of the Team GB football Olympic squad, ruled himself out of the team about a month ago with a back and hip injury. But he shoved his loyalty for his country in the faces of the Team GB Olympic organizing committee last night by playing in a friendly in Los Angeles and scoring.

Now Sepp Blatter has come out this morning and has said that if the FA wants to make a complaint to FIFA, then Gareth Bale will be banned from playing for Tottenham Hotspur while the Olympics are being played. Whether that’s the FA of Wales and of England, we’ll have to wait and see. But Gareth Bale could be made an example of.

What do you think? Should he be banned from playing for Tottenham while the Olympic football tournament goes on? Or should the FA just ignore the story.
