Tottenham Hotspur forward Bale is up for both the PFA Player of the Year and Young Player of the Year awards after another dazzling season.

But Wales boss Coleman is adamant his country are not a one-man team and he believes March's 2-1 win in Scotland, when an unfit Bale went off at half-time, is perfect evidence.

"He is talked about for Tottenham more than he is for Wales," Coleman told Sky Sports at the opening of Wales' new national football centre. "But we have got other players as well.

"I get asked the same questions about the same player - Gareth Bale. But as you saw against Scotland, we are not a one-man team. We have had to win without Gareth, which is not easy.

"Gareth out of any team is going to be a loss. But we have got other players as well."

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
