Looks like it. Buffon signing a 2-year deal at the age of 40... 

 

BILD is reporting that Lewandowski wants to leave. lrFhIqd.png 

No wonder. Whats the challenge in winning a dead league. Lewa should come to PL or to la liga.

City just whopped everyone in the premier league and hit 100 points. 

Barcelona won their league with 1 defeat. Would have been an invincible season if Messi had played that match.

 

Meanwhile, 3 of them finished with the same amount of points in Bundesliga and only 2 managed to get the CL spot. 

 

You clearly have never seen a match outside PL - Arsenal.

I do not watch other leagues to be honest. Very rarely have i watched La liga, Serie A, Bundesliga, the french one, etc.....

 

What is the average points difference between the top 4-5 teams in all the leagues, let's say for the last 10 years or so?

People seem to forget that Bayern is a top club and will win the league anywhere with ease except in La Liga where they will have some challenge with Barcelona and Madrid. It takes years of practice to reach where they are now. In couple years, Bayern won't be the same Bayern unless they go on spending spree as they will be losing Robbery and other aging players. Just hoping it won't be drastic as United. 

 

Did everyone forget Fergie's domination for years? Or just started watching football? Leicester winning the league was once in a lifetime moment. That will never be repeated and everyone had a poor season that year. Since the introduction of Premier League in 92, it's always been Manchester United winning with Chelsea winning a few here and there. 

 

69-67, 70-65, 75-68, 81-73, 91-66 - won the treble, 90-71, 79-69, 88-78, 82-67, 84-63

 

Is same as 

 

87-85, 90-86, 86-85, 80-71, 89-89 - Agüerooooooo moment, 89-79, 86-84, 87-79, 81-71 - Leicester happened, 93-86, 100-81

 

Bayern won 16 times and United has won 13 times. If United had made proper transfer deals, they would have been wiping the floor just like Bayern and other top clubs. They failed to refresh their squad and that's hurting. PL has the same amount of competition as other leagues. It's just that it is popular and widely known due to Manchester United. Even the runner-ups are same 3-4 clubs. 


Ligue 1 - PSG only started to dominate now. Back then Lyon went on and won 7 league titles in a row. They still play well and give PSG a run for their money. 

Serie A - Juventus has always been a juggernaut like other top clubs. If Milan clubs had not messed up, they could have been challenging them. Instead, both Inter and AC fell out of the contest. Roma and Napoli give a good fight every year now.

La Liga - don't think it needs any stat even when Barcelona won 7/10 titles as Spanish clubs have been dominating Europe for a while now.

 

League is more than just lifting the title. This goes to all. Every league has up and downs. Just because PL is more famous doesn't mean other leagues are easy and don't matter.

Lol. Bundesliga bayern wins every year. Spin the way you want but its a dead dead league. PL was one sided this year only.  Different winner each year in PL.La liga also atleast has 3 teams battling it out for trophy but bundesliga well whos there? Tell me? 

 

 

Bayern did work hard to reach there but with no competition. Barca and real battled it out and now athletico is there.

 

Pl every year you have a new champion. 

 

When one team wins a league every year then its boring boring and a dead league. Bayern struggled a little this year if i am correct and still won it :lol: And you say league isn't dead :lol:

 

Get the glasses off mate please. Accept atleast once. No harm  :)

Wow. Falk reporting Vidal, Thiago, Bernat, and Boateng are available for sale. mPyEmpQ.png 

Sounds like a Bale purchase incoming.

Van Dijk and Boateng would be the best CB pair in the PL, but he's injury prone like always. So, not worth it

Wtf Zidane :ko:

 

Thats a middle finger to the Board from Zidane? 

 

Looks like that.

 

I think it must have been the other way around.. Perez must have pressured zidane to resign due to lack of success in la liga..

Even I have the same feeling.

 

To save face, in front of the fans, they must've asked him to mention that he is 'stepping down.' But, we will never know the truth.

 

If there was news that Real 'sacked' him or they were the ones who removed him, the fans would've been enraged, since he just won the UCL, three times, no less.

 

Zidane, being grateful to Real Madrid, obviously took the 'fall.'

 

Again, this is just my speculation. The truth, obviously, we will never know.

 

Also, Wenger to RM. My goodness! Don't even know what to say to that rumour.
