So 2 English teams in Europa league and 2 Spanish teams, so how is La Liga stronger based on Europa. English teams have been better in the Champs league so therefore EPL better than La Liga.
No you say. Of course you would. I think EPL is better and more exciting, also less predictable especially this season. I think the difference is they type of football.
Almost every Spanish team tries to pass the ball, not so English teams. Thats just style but for me, an avergae premier league game is more entertaining than a La liga game.
Well regarding the Europa League / UEFA Cup I was certainly talking about more than just right now this season, and I presume whoever else mentioned it was too. If we went by that kind of logic then the English and French leagues are the best because they both have 2 teams left in the CL at the moment.
It was more a comment regarding the relative poor performances of English teams in general over the past few years really - we're generally seen as best of the rest in England yet the best we've managed is the last 16. Villa who are fairly similar to us in terms of position in the PL have struggled even more than we have in Europe. For all Sky's bluster about English domination of the CL, you'd assume that the relative strength in depth of the league would see English clubs similarly dominate the UEFA cup, but that certainly hasn't been the case.
I suppose "which league do you prefer?" and "which league is best?" are two entirely different questions. I find it hard to answer the question of which do I prefer to watch because I have a bias towards Spain as a reaction to the bollocks that we are force fed about how great English football is by our media. So I'd probably in general rather watch a random Spanish game than an English one, but that wouldn't necessarily be anything to do with preferring the football - more about preferring to see those teams and players.
I think the Spanish league is better in terms of the technical abilities of the players, however there are undoubtedly many very good players in the English game too. I'd like to see some of the top English players play in Spain and Italy to see how they'd cope with the different style of football, and it would also benefit England at international level too I think.
