    Anyone simply delighted about how close Madrid is getting to Barca,
    after defeating Osasuna?

    Damn, and Atlético will go to Europe next year, but what a polemic
    goal, isn't it?

    Would rather see someone like Osasuna win the league!

    Barca try and buy success (end up with a team of so called stars who haven't the bottle for a fight) and Real are simply a governement funded madhouse.....

    Come on Valencia 🙂

    Oh for crying out loud! Where do you lead the Atlético de Madrid?

    They still can... er... wait... no, they won't win La Liga, but hell they
    can still get themselves in Europe for next year! 😵

    La Liga is getting worse and worse.

    Madrid are terrible.
    Barcelona players are fat.
    Who are Osasuna?
    Your best players are leaving: Ronaldo, Torres, Eto, probably Ronaldinho.
    Messi if he ever gets consistent will be bought by Chelski.
    And look at the fantastic development Spain has given to Robino, maybe having 10 different coaches hasn't helped.

    Beckham is in LA, I just saw him in Beverley Hills getting his hair done.
    He should be back next week.

    Anglo-centric.

    Stay in your little nationalistic, small world, mate

    In the meanwhile, I will enjoy all the good football around the world,
    from Argentina to Mexico and Germany to Spain, without forgetting
    the wonderful show in the African Cup of Nations, for example, and
    the Copa America and the Euro Cup as well.

    And I'll watch English teams play and dominate the best most prestigious football competition in the world, the Champoins League for years to come.

    Yes, kid, enjoy yourself.

    World is way bigger than your little island. One day, when you grow, you'll grasp it 😉

    I live in LA and will watch Beckham play for the LA Galaxy soon.
    I know a little bit about the world outside GREAT BRITON.

    I'm not sure why your attacking England, you should have learned from your own history lessons and the famous Spanish Armada.

    I'm just pointing out facts about La Liga.

    Madrid -Very poor compared to 3 years ago.
    Barcelona - They fight more with themselves that the opposition on the pitch.
    Osasuna - Who are they?
    Messi - Great Talent but has not done anything against the best teams yet.
    Best Players - England can afford them now, it use to be Italy and Spain that bought them all.
    Robihno - What a sad waste of a talent he is at Madrid, Sir Alex Ferguson, Rafa Benitez or Asrene Wenger could turn him into the best attacking winger in the world.

    I'm not an Alglo-phobe, I just think England have the best players and the best teams in Europe now.

    Spanish football is very entertaining but overall poor in all round quality, the pace is too slow, your players don't seem fit and defense does not seem to matter.

    Do you not enjoy watching Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsie or Liverpool?

    Matey... it is not healthy to get passionate about football.

    People who concentrate their love for a sport in who is best and
    take it to passionate levels are as dangerous as nationalist serbs.

    🙂

    L.A., uh?

    You have very good football South the border, dominating
    club competitions in CONCACAF and CONMEBOL.

    Edit. I enjoy a lot the Premier and I am an Arsenal fan myself.
    But I like the play style of La Liga and it is a matter of taste; I like
    more technical footie 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.

    Nice topic.

    IMHO, Messi is not in the level of Kaka or Henry nor Ronaldinho.
    Rooney is a little bit more mature as a football player than Messi,
    but I still think he needs two more seasons like the one he is playing
    right now in order to climb up to the level of Dinho.

    Ronaldo... well... Ronaldo, IMO, is not anymore in the level of the
    great ones.

    But, then again, it is just an opinion. Same with Cannavaro, who
    gets for I don't know which reasons the award as best player, and
    immediately after that he gives a horrible season with Madrid 🙁

    I agree Kaka, Henry, Roaldinho and I think Gerrard are the best players in the world because they have been producing quality football consistently for a number of years.

    The young pretenters that are starting to break into this group (I believe) are Rooney, Messi, Tavez, C Ronaldo, Fabregas, Robben and Robinho (if he had the correct coaching).

    Messi is better to watch and has a little more skill but Rooney has a complete game and is starting to win the really big games for United when it really matters.

    Its going to be a fantastic football game when United play AC Milan on Wednesday, anything could happen and its an oppotunity for Rooney to show he can consistently be the difference and put United into the final.

    The again, maybe Kaka will dominate and show his class.
    I can't wait for the game.

    Yup, I think 3 or 4 years in a row showing superb football are
    a nice measure to say "this is a big name". Let's see what happens,
    because the world of football is really expecting a new Maradona, and
    who knows, maybe the new one is amongst the young chaps
    surprising us nowadays! 🙂
