    english vs european football....

    one conversion from 54 corners this past season in the champions league..... at least one corner converted every weekend in the english league.. a small stat, but hardly insignificant... but seen together with the possession stats when continental teams faced english sides in the competition this season, shows why the english game is several years behind... and falling even further behind each season..... big up english teams reaching the finals the last few years all you want, but no one remembers runners up... only two english teams have won the competition in over a decade... sorry, but your vigorously marketed competition is sub-standard and hardly entertaining (united, chelsea, chelsea, united, yawn) when compared to some of europe's top leagues... the world's best players play in the la liga and serie a, while the bundesliga and ligue 1 provide great entertainment at affordable prices to all..... face it, your game is a dinosaur heading to extinction...... goodbye...

    • Tartan Idiot! Firstly, how many Scottish teams have ever won ANY Eurpoean trophy?
      Secondly you criticise English Premier cos it's ManU, Chelsea, Arsenal etc but in jockland it is only ever Rangers & the left footers, Spain it is always only Barca or Real, Italy it is AC or Inter so your comparison of "some of europes top leagues" is a load of #$%$

      • typical reactions from neanderthals... insults and the like..... don't see anyone able to address any of the salient points...

        basically it means that outside the top 4, teams from other european leagues would wipe the floor with substandard english teams..... the likes of genoa, udinese, sporting, braga, getafe, osasuna, etc. will always THUMP the likes of bolton, stoke, fulham, etc... overall, as a product, the other leagues are miles ahead of the english league...... the quality of the national team too suffers due to all your players plying their trade locally in a substandard league.... see what happened with the u21?

    • And the Scottish premier league is better i suppose? that's if you are a Hearts supporter which i doubt,otherwise you would keep your trap shut,who would not, having to watch Scottish football easily the laughing stock of Europe.

    • How about a big bit of fish to go with that enormous chip on your shoulder ?
