With a ticket to the Premier League now worth £120million a season, thinking with a clear head is always going to be difficult for those pulling the strings at our clubs - but that's why Leicester deserve a pat on the back for their handling of Pearson.
Liverpool badly need to get their house in order if they want to have a hope of clawing their way back into the top four again any time soon. The building blocks are all there: a devoted fanbase, a young team rife with potential, a manager with a decent track record and the rest of it.
Something needs to change for our beloved Welshman. If it's not going to be a move away, Real Madrid need to do more to accommodate him. He'll always have that price tag hanging over him otherwise.
He's only 22, but Ings has a huge decision to make this summer. He will have the chance to go to Liverpool if he wants it, maybe a bigger club too, but he has to make sure his head and not his heart is in control.
Aguero, to put it frankly, has been remarkable ever since he signed for Manchester City from Atletico Madrid for £38million in 2011. From his debut, where he scored twice, stealing the show in a 4-0 hammering of Newcastle, 'Kun' has been chief supplier of goals at the Etihad Stadium.
Some things just aren't meant to be. Sometimes, it's just best to face up to reality, get it out in the open and decide to move on. It's difficult, but necessary. It's in nobody's best interests to waste their time and effort.
More and more teams who looked safe are being dragged into the relegation dogfight and now five teams are separated by just two points as they fight to avoid the final relegation spot. So, who's going down? Who's staying up? Let's have a look...
Falcao simply wasn't ready for a full season in a league programme as action packed as England's. He is crying out for a proper summer's rest and with that under his belt there is every chance the Falcao of old will rise from the dead.
Sunderland have been bumping along the bottom of the league for years now, just about staying afloat. This season might be a step too far. In a couple of season's time, at this rate, we may even see a Tyne-Wear derby in the Championship.
If the makers had done a bit more research they would have discovered that as a company Sports Direct actually look after their long-serving workers, rewarding loyalty with shares and bonus schemes which can then be converted to hard cash.
So it was, on a sunny Saturday in Brighton, that Watford clinched promotion back to the 'Promised Land'. With late Rotherham and Fulham goals meaning ...
Unfortunately for Liverpool fans, history has repeated itself... again. A season of hope created last year has been followed by a term failure. And even while Brendan Rodgers will get another opportunity to set things right, it could be his last chance if he doesn't succeed.
Wenger's Arsenal side are coming to their peak as a team. They put in a late joust at the title this season, they're overwhelming favourites to retain their FA Cup title, and they've got the potential to improve even further next season. Why would you take that stability and throw it out of the window?
With the quality players they have Chelsea had a good chance of beating United in a straight fight, but the players went out on the pitch prepped not to lose, rather than to try and win - the fact that they did get the three points was more a happy coincidence than anything else.
Anyone who thinks Pochettino has merely been lucky to turn up at a time when these players have started to excel should glance at what he did at Southampton. In the time he was there he turned a bunch of largely uncelebrated professionals into big stars.
Manchester City have been far too naive in the transfer market since building their first Premier League title winning squad. It's a team which still remains, has reached its peak and gone far past it. So much so that it's become a problem. Serious work needs to be done.
