    No-one else remotely close either, IMHO.
    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
    - Barney Ronay on Mario Balotelli

    Messi, Ronaldo, Xavi, Iniesta, Zlatan, Falcao, RVP, Cavani, Suarez, Pirlo, Fabregas and Yaya all comfortably ahead and then there's a whole host of people who I don't see any reason why he should be ahead of - Neymar, Aguero, Ribery, Mata, Schweinsteiger, Goetze, Reus, Kroos - hell Santi, Ozil.
    I've not even mentioned defenders or keepers - Silva, Ramos, Chiellini, hell even Kompany even though he's not been quite so great this year.
    Vidal has been insane for Juve this season, likewise Hamsik for Napoli. Lewandowski's been banging in goals for fun.

    There are so many players that Bale is closer to in terms of ability than Ronaldo it's not even funny.

    He's just so vastly overrated.
    He's a very good player, as we've established but it's the talk of him being worth 65m or being better than Ronaldo that just really grates me.

    He's barely been better than Walcott ffs and I think you'd be doing well to convince 80% of the public he was worth 20m before this season.

    A few figures from 09/10-Christmas last year.

    Wilshere limps off, well that's the end of that then.
    Do I contradict myself?

    I don't understand why Barcelona didn't bid 90m for Walcott either.

    Yep, because exactly what I was saying in the above posts was that (a) Bale's valuation was correct and seeing as (b) Walcott is a better player (c)he should've been worth more than the touted figure for Bale.

    Or did I actually say none of those three things?

    Stats eh?

    Anyway This is why I desperately want QPR to go down, note the QPR goal is down to the 'arry effect, presumably the other 3 goals in the game was nowt to do with him guv'nor.

    If that's all goals and assists are, then fair enough.

    Been waiting for that red since he got the yellow early on.

    Yep they are. Assists are only worth mentioning when laughing at Downing.

    Chelsea are ****ing mad for not wanting to keep Lampard around. Still so valuable, even at 34.

    Knock is Terry and him are on the outers with Roman because of the AVB oust, dressing room power thing.

    Football wise it makes no sense because he's never had pace to lose.
