Danny 2,084 Posted March 14, 2019 Share Posted March 14, 2019 Tim "shoots from the hips" Sherwood has claimed on the latest The Debate show that the Premier League is now the best league in the world (whilst being paid on Sky Sports, to talk about their flagship product completely unchallenged, who woulda thought it?) I'd say: La Liga - Undoubtedly, years of Champions League domination from Real Madrid, Barcelona and in the latter stages Atletico Madrid. Beyond that, years of Europa League domination from Sevilla and Atletico Madrid with regular latter round appearances from other Spanish clubs as well. Spain's top 6/7 consistently outperforming their European counterparts in European competition. I think we can all forget the old "but English teams don't get beaten 5/6/7-0 like the Spanish sides do" after Guardiola has now had his way with England. Premier League - Where the investment is, two strong sides in Liverpool and City, overachievers in Spurs behind them and a resurgent Man Utd. Recent Europa League success and latter round appearances with United, Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal. Serie A - I don't think there's a lot between Serie A and Bundesliga at the moment, and tbh don't think there's a lot between the Bundesliga and the Premier League. But because of the competition from the likes of Juve, Napoli and Roma I'd edge it over Bundesliga. Bundesliga - Dortmund and Bayern have had a bit of a mare in recent European competitions, outside of them there's not much else. Overall I think all 4 divisions are largely very similar in quality from upper-midtable down and there have been times recently where Bundesliga has probably been second behind La Liga (Bundesliga overall very similar to the Prem, changes depending on what's happening at the top)...but I don't think anyone could say La Liga hasn't been the best for a while now.
