I used to think the same way you did comparing La Liga and the EPL. Trust the EPL is not as good as you think it is, the games are so boring to watch at times and they end up being 1-0 and teams ending up scoring through penalties and terrible defense. The players have no technical ability and even have time passing at times, trust me I have seen a lot of these games. Apart from a couple of teams that try to playing beautiful football like MC or Arsenal, the rest of the team are not really good offensively. I also don't consider Liverpool or Tottenham to be good, they are average in my opinion.

Sevilla, Valencia, and Athletic Bilbao from La Liga are better than you give them credit for, I see them beating their EPL counterparts. Those guys have won the Europa league consecutively now. I agree with your assessment of Serie A and Ligue 1, the Bundesliga is similar as well. Trust me, watch some more La Liga games if you can, their players are far more technical and possess skill rather than the brute force and pace you are accustomed to seeing in the EPL.



Really? I haven't been following the EPL as closely as I used to. I haven't had time. That's how I remember the EPL teams 1-2 seasons back in time. This past season I've been following Madrid and the games of the Champions League.
I hope that the EPL doesn't end up like the Serie A.


Yea, I don't see the EPL becoming as bad as Serie A, it just won't happen. The clubs have way too much money and love for the game. But the quality of play from their individual teams has dropped, especially the teams in the second half of the table. It is an eyesore to watch at times lol. But I'm seeing improvements tho which is good. I just think that La Liga is a better league in terms of technical ability and what not but its not as renown or famous as the EPL.

Agree about La liga. Teams like Valencia, Atletico and Sevilla can beat Barca and Real on their day. EPL feels more competitive because the quality of top teams have dropped drastically that they get beaten by sides like burnley, bradford city, MK Dons etc.
