Can athletico win la liga??


it would be brilliant if they could... Madrid and barca have so much more depth in their squads but athletico are giving it a good go at the moment..

@releasethekraken Great clubs? There's 4 or so GREAT clubs max in England. I suppose it depends how you judge a club to be 'great' I guess.

Does the second rate mid-table clubs in the EPL being handed big lump sums of cash make them become 'great' club? Not for me, that's artificial. It takes much more than that.

@CelticFC1888 okay, fine. but what is your point?? you're not really proving anything here. can you not just admit that there is a lot of money in english football because it's a great league with great clubs in it and great competition?

@jimbo1984 the point is that the English league isn't the be all and end all which of course it isn't but then he names 1 team league germany as a better league.

@CelticFC1888 didnt arsenal beat bayern in Germany last season?
What is your actual argument?
How many English teams are in the quarter finals of the champions league?
We can't be doing that bad

@releasethekraken £35-45m of QPR's amazing £60m turnover last season as a Premier League was Sky TV money, kind of says it all. Fabricated clubs to the brim.

@Doozers20 Munich weren't out of first gear, it was so comfortable for them over both legs.

@CelticFC1888 1. how would you know that? and 2. what difference does it make? people still want to watch loads of it, hence there is loads of money in the league. shows that the league is a good one. don't see what you're attempting to prove here.

@CelticFC1888 some good players, yet their teams are nowhere near the top 4-6 in the Premier League.

@CelticFC1888 yet Bayern Munich didn't batter Arsenal, and Arsenal are chasing the title...

@Jonevarro That's similar to comparing Bayern Munich (a title chasing side) to Arsenal (top 4 chasing side) at this moment.

@releasethekraken The majority of money the EPL receive from television rights is from Sky TV, 100%.

@CelticFC1888 Bundesliga is good but overrated. Schalke for example are 3rd in the league yet Madrid and Chelsea have absolutely dicked on them twice each this season

@CelticFC1888 okay then. how come, in the US for example, you can view every single 3pm kick-off on television? yet in england, you cannot view them legally. yet 'the majority' according to you is from sky television? when they show far fewer games in england than in other countries?

@CelticFC1888 muinch are where they are and won't be stopped because they are so powerful in Germany and continuously take the best players of the club that is closest to them, gotze and lewandowski are prime examples, where will Dortmund be in 2 years time if bayern keep doing that? They certainly won't have that topt talent you speak of. Also go beyond them you have nothing.

@Doozers20 Munich are in a league of their own so to speak because their so damn good, it doesn't devalue the league, they should be honoured to have such a good team representing them. They school'd Arsenal and were no where near in top gear. Dortmund are a very good side to with top talent to.

@releasethekraken You do realise the majority TV money the EPL receive's is purely Sky television? Only the likes of your Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea, Man United, Man City's will make money from other countries on TV deals.

@CelticFC1888 we have a lot of top players in the premiership. Real and barca are more attractive these days I agree but it doesn't mean the premiership isn't still a top league.

@CelticFC1888 haha one team league Germany? When a team challenges Bayern, they just go and buy their best players!

@CelticFC1888 well clearly we do attract them if they're here. regardless of whether it's money or not. and do you ever wonder why there is so much money in english football? why do TV broadcasters all across the world put so much time and money into showing a league if it was no good? go ahead and explain that one to me.
