    in 435 league games.

    That’s simply insane.

    Regardless of how easy La Liga is.

    Surely never to be beaten

    How on earth did he find time to score all those goals. I thought he was a full time dodgy taxlawyer...

    Just a shame he never played in another league... *avoids obvious Stoke joke*

    He’s played plenty of games against the best club sides in Europe though, and scored a shitload in the process. He’s have bosses it in any league, provided he had players around him on the same wave length. Glad Ginsoak never got him.

    I see repeated here so often that La Liga is shit league, what standards are you using to make that assessment? Spanish teams have dominate European competitions by winning the two cups more than any other league.

    Imagine that from a league were the pesetas are low and the Pulises, Pardews and Warnocks are few and far between?

    Spanish lowstandard teams that have been in the Semi's of the European cups over a relatively short period of time includes Villareal, Deportivo La Coruna, Valencia, Sevilla, At Madrid, Espanyol, At Bilbao and Real Betis if not mistaken. Probably more.

    Yeah, but I'd have liked to see him play for another club team and help them win things.

    Barcelona has basically been around him.

    There will be inevitable comparisons to Ronaldo, who love hate him or hate him, has tested himself in all three of Europe's top leagues. Albeit with the best teams in those leagues at the time.

    Imagine making a list of the years from say 1990 to 2018. Next to each year, write the number of teams that were competitive (doesn't have to mean being in European Cup finals, just good enough by your own judgement to have competed in one). For Spain, the clubs will extend out to two, occasionally three, hardly ever four in any given year. For England, the clubs will extend out to at least four in most years, and five or six more recently.

    I can't accept Your argumentation… You clearly imply that England is more competitive due to Arsenal and Spurs?

    Due to counting {Liverpool, United, Arsenal, Chelsea, Man City, Tottenham} versus {Barcelona, Real, Atletico}. I'm not sure what your definition of competition is, but the correct one is that six teams is more competitive than three teams. The other teams you listed are ones that come and go in fleeting seasons, they're the equivalents of Newcastle, Blackburn, Leeds, etc.

    I beg Your pardon. Sevilla have 5 good European trophies to their name and is by that alone a more competitive club than Arsenal, who again is just as competitive as Alaves With their one final appearance. Valencia has a much prider European history than Tottenham Hotspurs, who only recently started to ensure their players actually had passports. You are talking nonsense my good man.

    He's talking about the league. The Premier league is more competitive than La Liga.

    Well let's imagine a different list, the league title winners over the last few decades. Compare the Spanish list to the English list, and the competitiveness of both will reveal itself to you.
