You are right, the Scottish Premier League is miles better.

 

I apologise 

 

Last time Rangers or Celtic failed to win the league was 1984-5 when Aberdeen won it.  Under Alex Ferguson I believe.

Got to admit I'd sooner watch a full blooded Hibs v Hearts Edinburgh derby than a tippy tappy Arsenal v Chelsea match.  But maybe I've just got used to watching us.

Anyway back to Owls v Man C.........

Well I’m pleased you were able to respond to the question in such a rational, mature fashion, as well as totally understanding the point being made. Cheers mate.

 

The Premier League is the most watched league in the world 

The Premier League had both teams in the final of the Champions League

The Premier League had both teams in the final of the Europa League 

The Premier League has some of the most iconic teams and players in the world 

The Premier League has the most exciting games in any league, fast paced, technical ability, aggression wise 

 

Any more??

A lot of this is window dressing fluff that nobody cares about - or should care about - unless you have a specific interest in selling the product or support the teams involved in those finals.

 

”Two English teams in the final” is such a dull thing to be excited about. I thought the CL final was garbage if I’m honest. 
 

Still.. people get REALLY passionate and protective about this country’s league being THE BEST for whatever bizarre reason so don’t let me spoil it for you.

The Premier League is a closed shop that only a select few teams can win?

This year’s title race has been the dullest in living memory?

The Premier League has devalued the FA Cup?

The Premier League has made a complete mess of implementing VAR?

Fair enough but you are in the minority 

 

Care to name a better league?

Just passing by and noticed this......I think you'll find this closed shop is about to be won by a team that has never won the PL in the past 30 years

Bundesliga?

 

Bayern and Leipzig have just stuffed Chelsea and Spurs on their own grounds.

 

It’s not just about quality either. The fan culture they have there and the 50+1 rule that prevents a dictator like DC having sole ownership of a club.

 

If you think the games in the premier league have been the most exciting in the world this season, I’d say you’ve been believing too much sky hype

Liverpool have always been one of the teams in the select few who can win it now

Closed shop  - with new winner coming up. I believe Leicester won it not far back too

Chelsea

Man u

Man City

Arsenal 

Blackburn 

 

So that'll just be the 7 teams since 93

 

5 of those getting to a champions league final

Are telling me you're not entertained by a top club in the prem having 80% possession against a midtable club and winning easily?

 

It's edge of the seat stuff I'll have you know lol

Each round has a minimum price per round agreement with the FA, don't know the exact amount, but this round is around £18-£20.

That cant be right

Maximum ticket price Reading v Vermin is £10

Not really? It's a weird thing to care about. I file it under the same bracket as people who care about FIFA Ultimate Team cards, like watching Sky's transfer deadline totaliser going up, or the sort of joyless freaks who simply can't enjoy Messi and Ronaldo because there simply MUST only be one who is better. 

 

If I must, the Bundesliga currently has 5 teams with a genuine shot at the title and has more about it that I like as a league, so I'll say that. Serie A finally has a much overdue title race too. I'll be tuning into Hibs vs Hearts tonight which I'm probably more interested by than any of this weekends Premier League fixtures. I'm sure all this makes me some sort of football hipster vs THE RICHES OF THE PREMIER LEAGUE but there we are.
