I'm trying to get into watching soccer regularly..I have some questions..

Can you guys generalize the differences between leagues and national teams in terms of style of play?

Such as..

What are the differences between La Liga, EPL, Bundesliga, MLS, Serie A, S. American leagues, Asian leagues, etc. in terms of how they play? Are certain leagues more aggressive? Allow/disallow certain things? Possession ball? More defensive? Or are these traits more attributable to individual teams?

In terms of national teams, what are the differences between Brazil, Italy, Spain, Germany, USA, England, Portugal? Are certain teams more finesse? Aggressive? Floppers? Always attacking? Possession ball? Defensive?

What makes Bayern Munich so good? Chelsea? Manchester United? Barca? Real Madrid? Juventus? AC Milan?

Thanks in advance.

if you are getting into soccer i dont suggest you to watch seria a ( no disrespect to anyone but its the truth ).... EPL is a must watch, and el clasico games in la liga, bayern-dortmund in bundes league, and psg-monaco in the french league might be interesting too... also Champions League is a must watch.
Or are these traits more attributable to individual teams - that would be true..


lets see - spain- possession ball,finesse, italy-defensive, germany-attacking, aggressive, usa, england -mediocre, brazil-attacking, finesse, a little bit of flopping


what makes those teams good is... well the same thing that makes lakers, celtics, bulls... and some others.. being always near the top... big markets, money and history... of course there are some teams like barca that have great youth academies.

Looks like Dortmund ends up beating out the Spurs and Liverpool. Reportedly. Again. Hopefully I don;t need to jump on another wagon.
