    I sort of know what he means about the power. When Bale gets up to full speed he runs like a proper 100m sprinter, and you can really see him power past people, as opposed to tricking his way past. Ronaldo doesn't really do that.

    But so what? Ronaldo is literally better at everything.

    Can't imagine him ever reaching Ronaldo's level but hopefully he gets another chance to impress in the CL next year with Spurs.
    Don't forget the diving. But I can't really say I want to punch Bale in the face. Ok, he looks like a monkey, but it isn't an arrogant look. Only time he deserves a smack is when he makes that painful look after diving. He has yet to master it to Ronaldo's level of turning in mid air and fixing a glaze on the ref just before he hits the deck.

    Where's the video? It's a classic.

    He's going anyway so it's nice of Sky to help inflate his value.

    Na his twatish smile when he does his awful heart celebration deserves a punch in the nose.

    He'll go at some point. This summer or next. It's inevitable.

    Have we already done Spurs' attempt to clone Bale?

    New Prem financial regulations:

    Points deduction if teams make a loss over 105 million over the next 3 seasons.

    Anyone else watch The Footballer's Football Show on Sky Sports?

    Good to have a more mature football show on TV.

    That sounds rubbish. That's an awful lot to lose, even if it's over 3 years.

    He's a basically a Ronaldo lite; the hair, the stance for free kicks, puffing of the chest and even the way he now pulls his sleeves up 3/4 of the way.

    But he's a long, long way off imitating the the 45 plus goals a season that Ronaldo guarantees you.

    Hated, adored, never ignored.

    City , Liverpool and Chelsea all would've failed for the previous 3 years

    I'm guessing Man Utd don't like the look of that 52m salary 'cap'.

    Only just catching up with motd2, there's no way Aguero meant that!

    That's the one. Ta. A thing of beauty. He has a future in ballet after he is done here.

    So Fellaini says he has no release clause in his contract. I'm sure he'll still leave in the summer (unless we can scrape 4th), but at least we'll get his market value.

    Looking forward to watching Carrick 'man-marking' him again on Sunday :D

    I reckon there'll be some good odds at the bookies on Villa not conceding from corners against West Ham. Not that I'm suggesting anyone should take that bet!

    You are a factory of sadness.

    Carrick + Cleverley first choice imo. Maybe if we play a five.
