LOL at winning the league. But.
If our chairman hadn't started our season 3 weeks later than everyone else by doing our business in the last minutes of the transfer window perhaps we wouldn't have been at such a disadvantage from the off. Add to that the fact that Adebayor didn't come back anywhere near fit and it took him a good month at least after the window closed to get fit again, plus he was shit all season paired with a striker in Defoe who blows so hot and cold it's ridiculous. So basically we played for most of the season without a decent striker.
Hopefully if we can get business done early this summer (lol again) and bring in some better options up top, plus you can add back into the mix Kaboul and Sandro, we aren't looking too bad - AVB has shown this season that he isn't the flop that Chelsea thought he was, we've taken points off of all of the big boys.
Bale situation is nothing to worry about (news from the club to come soon on that). Quite a few current squad players including Ekotto, Huddlestone, Bentley and Livermore will be jogged on to generate some additional funds and free up some wages.
