You have [b]very good football South the border, dominating
club competitions in CONCACAF and CONMEBOL.
Edit. I enjoy a lot ...[text shortened]... otie and the ball more time on the ground than in
the air, waiting for someone just to push it.
You're right so some extent.
I just wanted to offer my opinion that La Liga is not as strong as it was 3 years ago and has several problems to solve such as:-
- Real Madrid changing the coach every year
- Real Madrid are a poor side compared to 3 years ago
- Barcelona have crazy internal political problems
- Spanish players in general don't seem to be as fit as they should be, look at Ronaldo in Italy for example
- England has a much better chance of attracting the top players now with all the foreign owners buying our clubs
- Messi is amazing but is not consistent yet, no doubt he will be one day and could be one of the greatest players ever
- Rooney does not get the recognition he desereves outside of England, his goals against AC Milan were top class and he has an all round game that is second to none
I too prefare technical football and hate the long ball game.
So personally I only really enjoy watching Manchester United and Arsenal in England, they both play fast technically excellent attacking play. The 7-1 beating we gave Roma was unreal top class football.
Most Spanish teams play football that is great to watch and the games are very entertaining, but I think United and Arsenal play equally attractive football.
I have just been a little wound up by people disrespecting Rooney as a world class player, he is in the same class as Messi, Kaka, Henry, Gerrard, Ronaldinho and Ronaldo (both of them).
Rooney has a complete all round game not just the fancy flicks, he has power, pace, goals, assists and defends for the team at all times and most importantly he can produce mach winning goals and assists against the best teams when needed.
