They can infuse that in their academy big-time, buy a couple bigger names during this transfer, and anything else they need to do. They're still a top-8 team, even without Bale (likely top 6, maybe even top 4 depending on how Arsenal play).
Bale's a big name, to be sure, but he's not a Messi or Ronaldo (IMO)... he's a great player, but there are a lot of great players.

I find it almost impossible to dislike Dortmund.

I wish it were easier to watch the Bundesliga, though with the EPL being on NBC's sports, I can't complain (was able to lower my cable bill because of that, haha). Guess that's what online streaming is for...
Meanwhile, I've been surprised at Southampton v. Sunderland. It's been enjoyable to watch, with decent chances and good flow. Sunderland looks like a quality mid-tier team, and Altidore looks like he belongs in the EPL (though it seems like he's still trying to figure out what he can & can't get away with). Southampton, meanwhile, still look like that team that could spring an upset at any time, but will likely be closer to the bottom.
