Premiership Round Up
With the league season over, what events at other clubs will affect Liverpool?
One I can think of is Tottenham's failure to qualify for the Champions' League. Spurs have been hyperactive in the transfer market of late, signing up all the decent British players that don't make it to Chelsea. They're definitely trying to muscle their way into the top echelon of the Premiership, and CL qualification would have really helped them. As it is, they have a harder challenge to sign new talent and keep their best players than had they made it. This can only be for the benefit of Liverpool in the close season - there remain four 'big clubs' for top players to consider, not five.
