It's weird - what happened recently that made him resign?

But of course it's not over. The organisation as a whole did vote him in again, and it doesn't mean his eventual successor (it'll be months before he officially isn't in charge!) will be any better. Still, potential is there. Here's hoping.

Speculation is that he's resigning because his top aide was implicated by one of those indicted by the USA last week to be involved in a wire transfer of around $10 million that was related to the 2010 World Cup.

I hope more stuff comes out. Would love to see how rigged Korea/Japan actually was. My guess is that it was pretty much WWE.

So, Barcelona won the Champions League to the surprise of no one. They're unbelievable.

Also pleased that Sunderland managed to stay up in the end. I was in a bar with friends watching the draw with Arsenal and the place went crazy at full time. They really need to learn from past mistakes and start laying some solid foundations to build the club up and take it forward; everything's in place if they can only start making the right signings. Hopefully the appointment of Advocaat can set those wheels in motion and they can completely avoid the relegation battle for the 2015-16 season.

It would be great to see Arsenal finish first and Leicester so high, but I'm not a fan of anything that doesn't have Southampton in the top ten.

Even with the table in alphabetical order, Sunderland can't finish higher than 15th.

Greece is awful. I have no clue how they ever qualify or win anything.

I hope united can bring it back this season but mainly that lvg doesn't get more players who do little other than compete for their spot

I think I've finally recovered enough to talk about football on a regular basis again.

If you can, tell WN that I reciprocate the sentiment, it has been fun to chat in this thread for so long. I assume it's now a perm ban which is a big shame.

I think United can go into this season with reasonable comfort as they shouldn't be finishing out of the top four anytime soon. I feel like City and Chelsea will still be too strong for them regardless of United's signings though.

There was a reasonably interesting BBC article about some players who came from out of Europe and used Faroe Islands as an in road to European football before settling there. Decent read if you can find it, but I'm not sure how long ago it was.

I think they also will have a strong roster. Toure, Silva & Aguero are undoubtedly three of the best players in the league. I think Kompany will have a better season and Mangala will probably adapt to the league. Perhaps in some positions they need to trim some fat and bring in a few new players, but with their money I have no doubt they will do that.

That said I think they can find better value than Raheem Sterling to fill in their relatively weak right wing spot.
