I was a big juve fan. But in the last 2 years la liga has captured my attention. Spanish football shows the world how all football should be played:with attacking flair, clever build ups and spectacular play's from players like ronaldinho, denilson, zidane, aimar,valeron, joaquin, to name just a few.

La liga has the pace of the english pemeir league and the skill an tactics of the Serie A. The attitude in Spain is much different to that of Italy. All teams first or last on the ladder play to win. In Italy teams play for draws and this is reflected in scorelines and scoring chances created. In Spain and England to a lesser degree more players are proven to score rather than just the striker as is the case in Italy.

Don't get me wrong Italy has produced some of the greatest players and will continue to do so. I just have this feeling that foreign talents such as the Ronaldo's and Zidane's would relish the opportunity to play in Spain.

The effect of the defensive style expressed in Italian tactics may be consitent results and grinded out victories but no body will want watch.

After all sport is for entertainment? Lets evolve/improve Juve

(I do love Juve, trust me)

You can't say one league is better than the other. It's all about taste.

Just like Arsene Wenger once memorabily said:

"It depends which you like more – vanilla or chocolate ice cream? Both can be very good but, personally, I prefer vanilla".

Vanilla being the Premiership and chocolate being La Liga.

Personally, I like the way football is being played in Italy. Here it is very thorough and the coaches study every detail of their opponents and tactics. Every build up is carefully engineered. In Spain and England you see the fancy moves and the goals alright, but I wonder if the coaches really bother with tactics and plans. Its like they are playing a different version of football, lol.

Well..I guess that depends on what you like the most...Some may say La Liga is better cos they like watching it and some may say Serie A is better cos they prefer watching it, so it's only the matter of different tastes and opinions

All the 3 leagues (EPL,La Liga,Serie A) are full of talents...and I would rather say that the 3 leagues are pretty much equal in strength

maybe but i find "the whole package" just in italy...the tifosis, artistic goalies, fantastic dribblings and the best players(and tactics)....all that emotions and curiosities i can find only in italy...not in spain...and not in england

but i think we must consider the tittles each one can win
its very obvious that italy and spain won and can win
more

i mean europian titles , like CL and uefa, etc

if im not wrong , milan alone has won more titles than all
the english teams together..

also madrid...

maybe they have fast and fancy way of football
but not the strength of itlaian and spanish..

i really wonder ehy they gave them the best league in the world
2nd spain , 3rd italy??

what the english teams has done ??
also i think italy should be number one, cuz juve only won
against the 3 biggest team on spain , 3 italian teams were in semi finals
and all italian finals in the CL.
also lazio were doing very good in UEFA cup..

i think this ranking is nothing

good post :)

yeah.. the quality between these top three leagues are too narrow that the "taste" factor kicks in.

Depends on taste really. I for one don't think so-and-so is the best league or what just because they have bigger teams there. I personally prefer Serie A above all else and trust me it has nothing to do with Juve. I just enjoy their football and up to this day. It is the most perfect art of football IMO, football at its toughest and survival of the fittest at its best. The defence is good, so is the attack. There's a balance and the fact that it's tough is even better because you get to see better players! :extatic:

English teams won less simply because they were banned from Europe after the Heysel tragedy.

But English teams (Liverpool and Nott Forest) were ruling Europe in the late '70s.

But look at the past few decades of CL finals. How many times has an English team played in them and how many times have they won?

I know, only Man Utd made it in '98.

But I assumed bahraini was referring to total wins so I said the English teams were affected by the European ban and would certainly win less due to that.
