There's no way Bale is at Spurs next season, surely, so there's a spot opening chance (not guaranteed of course). I don't see Chelsea being much worse next season but maybe Arsenal, unpredictable and fragile. In any case, if they keep Suarez and buy 1 or 2 good players in midfield/defence they could give it a run. Without him, they're **** on a stick.
Yeah agree. Spurs will get **** loads for Bale though surley? Depends how much of it Levy is willing to spend and if they make the champions league or not, but you would imagine they would be able to bring in 3 or 4 good players.
Don't really see Arsenal falling away that badly unless Wenger leaves in the summer, which does not seem at all likely.
At the moment, I think there's a pretty significant gulf in quality between Liverpool and the top 5. I'm aware you're not necessarily saying otherwise btw, I'm just emphasising how in my opinion Liverpool have been totally carried by Suarez, and to a lesser extent Gerrard, for the last two years. Despite most players in the squad improving, there's no denying that there's still a load of dross in the side, and plenty of those who are past their peak and on their way out, or just on the decline generally.
I'm not sure Bale is leaving anyway. There's lots of time left on his contract so the club don't need to let go this summer and he hasn't given any indication that he wants away. You tend to hear something about it if there's a move being planned for players like Bale. Maybe he's waiting to see if they make the CL, if they do I can't see him leaving until the summer after at the earliest.
I'd be more surprised to see Suarez in the Premiership next season than I would Bale tbh.
No doubt all the wild speculation will be underway soon enough, Falcao to United is an interesting one.

Well that is a great goal.
Not sure I can watch the rest of this though.
Putting an exclamation point on it...
Cantona was reacting to being abused; indefensible, yes, but the Palace fan who was having a go was, by all accounts, a grade A scumbag and who didn't seem to want to know when the big Frenchman got physical. There's obviously no way he should done what he did, but he at least squared up like a man.
Biting someone is just snide and cowardly. As Brain Moore said on his Twatter feed, in rugby union a second biting offence has a 24 week tariff.
Seems fair to me.
