English players, on the other hand, are not so good. In my view it starts in the schools where the approach to sports has changed and its importance diminished.
People who think PL is boring is fooling themselves i think. If they think long ball,brit players only first division of the 70s was better,more fun.....
PL/First Division has never had as much exciting players as now, great european,south american,africans so on. PL i watch most because even Aston Villa vs Wigan can be fun. Spanish League is my second fav entertainment wise and only when the best teams play.
The only weakness in PL is the english players are so weak and so overrated. The media thinks they are world best when they have maybe 2,3 world class players. Even Rooney is slipping into some permanent loss of quality.
