PLF, i quoted just a lil part of your post (otherwise my post could become too long), but everything u wrote was absolutely correct :applause: :applause: :applause:What they fail to realize is that you're not actually comparing the two leagues because the league is made up of a lot more teams who don't possess truly world-class players yet make up for a huge percentage of the league's fixtures and a huge percentage to the 'entertainment' value as well because they ARE very good players. (After all, that's why they're playing in the TOP divisions). So what if they're not world-class? They don't have to be!
How can you for example really compare the quality of two leagues when instead of comparing 20 teams vs. 20 and 500 players against 500 and 20 managers and set of fans vs. 20 other managers and set of fans and stadium atmospheres when all you're really doing is doing it for 3 teams vs. 3 teams and 60 players against 60 players? :-s[/B]
