    Default La Liga, Serie A & other world football.

    I thought this would be a good thread for those who watch European football or other leagues across the world.

    Personally I don't watch La Liga much, but to anyone that does I wanted to ask if it's really as bad as it seems on paper? I say this in the wake of Cristiano Ronaldo scoring his third hat trick in 15 days, are the rest of the league really that appalling? Barcelona winning 5 and 6 nil every week too just means me think what a rubbish league it must be if Barca and Madrid are so WAY out in front of everyone not only financially but technically.
    Currently Madrid are 4th and you had Athletico reaching the Champions League final, but other than that there doesn't seem to be much excitement. If you pit one of our top teams against Everton or Southampton you could watch it knowing it'll be a competitive game, where as you watch Barca and they're 3-0 up in 20 minutes there's no point in watching anymore.

    I used to watch quite a bit of Serie A but not so much over the past few years.

    The resurgence of Valencia so far this season has been excellent to watch.

    Always had a soft-spot for "Los Che".

    Alex and Barbus already told you there is no such thing as other world football.

    England has a couple more big money clubs than Spain. But I don't see a lot of difference between league tables here and there.

    In some ways its worse here. You know at the start of the season which teams will fill the top five or six. I already know who be in the top five or six in England next season too. And the one after that. Spain, in fairness, isn't as predictable in 4th, 5th, 6th. Both leagues seem pointless to me.

    Our lower leagues are much better. Unpredictable, competitive and full of clubs with proud histories. Spain's lower leagues are clogged up with B teams. Give Dyke time though. Our Cup competitions used to be brilliant.

    The FA Cup final was once the most watched club match around the world, but we've allowed that competition to become an irrelevance just like the knockout tournaments around Europe.

    I don't think it will last sadly. I love Valencia, but with the style of game they are playing they wear out before the ends of games and I am not sure how long they will sustain it.

    Hoping they can though.

    Serie A is a bit interesting at the minute with both Roma and Juventus winning all of their matches, and then playing each other at the weekend with Juve coming out with a 3-2 win.

    It was a bit of a shambles though, with the ref awarding 3 penalties, two of which Juventus won but may have been outside the box.

    Totti's comments after the game were pretty funny to listen to.

    Hell of a game though..



    ..and there's talk of the Roma team having the piss taken out of them by the airport staff on the ay back and the pilot even saying "forza Juve" on one of his announcements.

    Watching Milan 2-0 down at home to Palermo after 25 mins on BT Sport.

    Also liked Milan because of Arrigo Sachi's side in the late eighties. That was my favourite European team.

    As I type my wife has just switched it over to X Factor.

    Cheryl Cole is now lip syncing live. How is there a Cheryl Cole Appreciation thread on this site? Is it ironic?

    I whinged about it so she's gone to bed.

    Now I just feel bad for dissing Cheryl Cole on the internet. Cos my mama taught me better than that. Sorry to Cheryl Cole and her fans.

    Milan have brought on that one that looks like Rory McIlroy but with a mohawk to try to get back in it.

    Stefan el-Sharaawy (or however the hell you spell it).

    Get yourself an iPad, it's how I keep my sanity with the bloody shit-factor and other reality crap invades my house.

    We have a tablet and a laptop we could watch from. You'd think that should prevent these sort of problems, but it doesn't.

    There's time yet. Juergen Klopp will get it sorted and - crucially - the fans are still 100% behind him.

    Forest, take note!

    Have the the 1000 English fans that fly out there for match days started calling for Klopp's head yet?

    Nearly went to this but chose to watch it from the comfort of my Milan flat. Was reminiscent of last years Allegri performances but with Torres doing sod all instead of Balotelli doing sod all.

    I see Milan have gone for Cambridge United 93-94 stripes this season. Is there a name for that?
