RVP is a beast, no doubt, but he fell off towards the end of the year, as he had a pretty long scoring drought near the end of the year. He also had MUCH better teammates and didn't have to create as many chances as Bale did. A great year, but not better than Bale IMO.
As far as La Liga, the answer is a big fat no. And that's what is majorly wrong with the league. Teams like Atletico Madrid come along once in a while and challenge them, and Valencia was really good for several years, but nothing sustained. Financial Fair-Play is supposed to help curb these types of things from happening, and while it's helping, it's still not close to where it needs to be. That's why the league is nowhere near as popular in the States as the EPL, despite the quality of play being better and much more sttractive (this not just from me but from MANY English analysts as well)...there is very little drama in La Liga, while the EPL is full of it. The EPL has marketed itself brilliantly...
