     Buying people who've had a great World Cup may not workreenex

     

    History teaches us that a great tournament does not a great Premier League player make: the Karel Poborsky Rule, as it is known. By buying World Cup flop Diego Costa, Chelsea have cleverly insured against this. Let's hope he doesn't become the new Fernando Torres.

     

     Pundits are better when they tryreenex

     

    There's been a notable increase in the amount of elbow grease put in by TV pundits in this World Cup, with the likes of Alan Shearer clearly having done research (or had it done for him) about the players he is watching. Let's hope the Beeb pundits' newfound appetite for homework extends to the domestic season as well.

     

     Luis Suarez has got to go

     

    Leaving aside morality and all that nonsense, Suarez losing the plot and biting Chiellini robbed his country of their best chance of progressing. Even Liverpool's loyal supporters must now recognise that the guy is a liability: if he keeps doing these crazy things and keeps getting long bans, surely it doesn't matter how good he is?

     

     There's no thrill like the thrill of the new…

     

    You'd have to have a heart of stone not to enjoy the way people in America have embraced the World Cup, or to be inspired by Costa Rica toppling three previous winners and then battling on with 10 men to pinch it against Greece. Football is just more exciting when it's not the same old teams winning all the time. Is it time for the Premier League to introduce some sort of draft system or wealth redistribution to try to level the playing field a bit? Or have we all just accepted that the spending power of the big four or five guarantees their dominance in perpetuityreenex ?
