Robin van Persie (c): Does he make your 2012-13 dream team?

Despite Manchester United reclaiming the Premier League crown with four games to go, it has been another thrilling season in England's top tier.

Tottenham forward Gareth Bale has been a shining light for Andre Villas-Boas' high-flying Spurs, and picked up both the Player of the Year and Young Player of the Year gongs at Sunday night's glittering ceremony.

He was also named in the PFA's Team of the Year, getting the nod on the left flank, and has been selected in the majority of teams picked by a string of on-line journalists and TV/radio presenters.

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
