    Agree with pretty much all of this. Losing Defoe was the beginning of the end, losing Berbatov was the actual end. And I had HIGH hopes foe Dos Santos..was a big fan of his at Barca, but he’s been a yawn.

    And I pick Hull to be the surprise of the season.

    Hull City…the new Reading.

    As for ‘Spurs, Ramos has almost completely started over with a new squad. Is it particularly surprising that they don’t know how to play together? He is trying to do in one season what most managers do in 5-10 years which makes him a genius and/or a madman. At worst it’s a beautiful trainwreck.

    In fairness to Robbie Keane (and Raffa Benitez, speaking of brilliant madmen) I don’t think he was bought for his goal scoring ability. he was bought because he managed to successfully (and somewhat unselfishly) partner a mercurial ego maniac of a striker at Tottenham. I can see the temptation to partner him with Torres. And considering Torres has worked as a lone striker it seems to make sense to bring in an unselfish and experienced player to develop Torres’ ability to form a partnership.
