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.

o Daniel, we're f***ed next season

Sturridge: We're moving on

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
