Quite frankly, Italian league is crap this year. No Juve and Milan is sucking big time.
They should be better next year.
Love Roma and Totti but they need to lose in the CL lol.

Anyway, I like how French play, they always have very athletic players and they play very attractive football. I also like to see some matches in Dutch and Portugal league, they have some good teams..
Wish I could see more of Ukrain and Russian league. They pay their players a lot and they play decent football.

Check this goal out from the Ukrain league...amazing

So yeah, there are some pretty good leagues all around Europe. South America is great but can't watch it..

I mostly watch Premiership but whenever there's a big derby somewhere else like Real-Barca or Iinter-Milan I just can't miss it.

BTW, I'm not a big fan of the Spanish league...dunno why, just not my cup of tea.
Barca was amazing last year and I've always liked them but never liked the league.
It was the best when Rivaldo was in Deportivo and Barca had that Dutch colony under Van Gaal IIRC.
And Madrid had Hierro, Redondo, Raul and others..oh boy, those were the days..I want those back

I mainly just pay attention to the Premier League and the Champions League. I'm an Arsenal fan so this year has been pretty frustrating with all the injuries.

I think next year Arsenal will be a beast. The defense has looked pretty good, but the offense is really lacking without Henry. Next year, Henry will be healthy. There is a lot of young talent like Fabregas, Van Persie, Walcott, Diaby, and Adebayor.

How about my boys from Pompey? From near relegation last season to a decent shot at Europe! What a turnaround Redknapp has engineered. If they can just get some help at midfield and a healthy, youthful striker, they might actually be able to take it to the next level. I fear a Wigan-type flameout if they don't plug the holes in the summer.

i am hoping chelsea win the league this year in england, we have a freindship with chelsea

up in scotland the team that i have followed my entire life and never miss a game ( home or away) are starting to gain a few points on celtic.

after our win at celtic park last week (thank you ugo ehigo ) and our 3-0 beating of aberdeen that leaves the famous glasgow rangers 13 points behind our most bitter rivels celtic!

21 points to play for

in all honesty there is NO CHANCE that rangers will win the league this season. it is all due to our manager that we had from the start of the sason till january, paul le guen came and ended our season before it had even started, celtic were 16 points ahead at halloween (about 12 weeks into a 38 week season)

so roll on next season when the famous glasgow rangers will be back playing at the biggest stage!

we are the people
(the club motto)

I can't believe that England couldn't even put up a single goal against Israel. It's a disgrace. McClaren needs to go immediately. How much worse of a run does England have to put up before they make a change?

As far as Ronaldo goes, he's playing some incredible football right now. There's no way United can let him go to Spain in the summer. He's definitely the top player in the world at the moment (with Ronaldinho, Drogba and Eto'o close behind). Portugal will be a threat in Euros and WC's as long as he's lacing the boots up for them.

Are you following the Copa Libertadores? What's with the tough time Boca Juniors is having? They should have qualified for the 2nd round already...

It's funny how every time a big tournament comes up England is amongst the favorites for it, even though they always look the weakest out of all of those teams.

That team lacks cohesiveness, creativity, and spirit. They basically look like a bunch of names that were thrown together at the last minute not even considering whether or not they form a squad.

But wow does McClaren suck as a coach. His club team Middlesbrough always threw money around at some talented players yet they always underachieved. He came out of there with one minor trophy and an asswhooping at the hands of Sevilla in the UEFA Cup final. That match alone should've told any England fan that they have the wrong man. Sevilla made Middlesbrough look like an amateur team in comparison.

But hey, at least he's English. What a joke of a team.
