EPL is overrated. As clearly seen by their continued flopping in Europe. It's a competitive league a decent watch at times but there is better technical soccer in the Bundesliga.


You've been hanging out with adms too much.

I agree that from top to bottom, the quality of play is slightly better in the Bundesliga. However, I'll take an exciting and competitive league first. Not really exciting going into every season knowing it will likely be Bayern hoisting the trophy. This season, it will likely be Bayern winning it all again, with Wolfsburg possibly putting up a fight.

I'll take the EPL, where there are four teams in contention to win it all, over a one horse race over in Germany. Ultimately it comes down to what you value most in a league.

Bundesliga is much better than EPL. The Quality in Epl is not that good they are over rated!! I would watch La liga over Epl also that's why it shows in the champions league. The English teams get exposed and even with all that record spending they still can't show it on the field.

Hey look. This. This is exactly what I was just mentioning. I'll take a league that's competitive over what's happening in Germany, Spain, Italy, etc.

You watch La liga not because of the quality but because you're an el salvatrucha! Typically people will support the next closest thing similar to their culture.

MLS is always my top choice but since I'm anglo caucasian (my puerto rican side assimilated 3 generations ago), I only watch EPL and I'll tune into Bundesliga for dual national purposes.

That's a great article. EPL is by far the best league and it's not close. The reason why EPL clubs have been struggling in UCL is the quality in the EPL. Chelsea/City/United/Arsenal can't sleep walk through a match vs Swansea/Palace/West Ham then go play a UCL match. Bayern/PSG/ Juve have 0 threats from any other squad. And Unless Barca and Madrid are playing each other the weekend before then they don't have to break a sweat either. Chelsea and City are every bit as talented as those other big clubs. But they have to figure out a way to make it happen in Europe.

You've kind of gone off the deep end lately, man. Wondering if your account has been hacked by adms.

MLS is the best league by my opinion. Since we are all giving opinions.

I am not an EPL fanboy. Never have been.

Would rather watch MLS, Bundesliga, Serie A.

First of all in Europe Bundesliga is my favorite. But my #1 Favorite league to watch is MSL by a lot... 2nd idk what the hell your talking about calling me Salvi you are wrong!!Third of all you yourself have said you are half Mexican. 4th of all the Epl is not good in terms of quality and style of play there are several exciting leagues aroung the world doesn't mean i will watch, heck MLS is more exciting than EPL in terms of playoff race and who will be champion. Lastly i could care less what other people think what i watch or like i'm sure most here have different tastes and like different teams/leagues.

Well since I gave reasons as to why I think the EPL is the best, I'd love to hear yours for MLS. If you say quality of play, I will have a hernia.

I've always thought the general play and style of the bundesliga is the best. Very excited to see it will be on fox. My friends from Bremen used to have me watching those guys 10 years ago with ailton, klasnic and the rest. But it's all a personal thing. I can see why many like EPL the best, it's a fun time as well.

I am excited to be able to watch bundesliga games on a consistent basis. I used to be a big EPL fan but my favorite league is now MLS. I find playoffs more exciting than single table. I don't care much about relegation battles. I like the parity that MLS offers, 3 or 4 teams don't always dominate every year. I feel that because I can sometimes attend games in person and MLS has to fight for recognition, that I have a hand in building the league.

Excitement and even in teams. Anyone can beat each other in any game. There is never a clear favorite. in Epl you pretty much can predict who will win. you have your top 4-5 teams in EPL and in MLS there are always surprises top to bottom. Isn't that the card you play when you talk about Epl ??
