The Premier League is one of the best football leagues in the world. Many would argue that it is, in fact, the best league around.
As with any league, some seasons are better than others; some years a team will run away from the chasing pack, and some years there will be teams who stand no chance of surviving (I'm looking at you, Derby County).
The point of this article is not to argue that the Premier League is better than La Liga; there are already thousands of articles on the Internet that have made strong cases for both leagues and there is still no clear winner. So, please don't read this article as an attempt to show that the Premier League is better than La Liga.
Indeed, it could be argued that the Premier League is in a bit of a slump; the two Manchester Clubs have been knocked out of the Champions League—indicating a lack of competitiveness with other European clubs—and some would point out that Chelsea and Arsenal both struggled to qualify for the knockout stages.
Furthermore, big name players like Carlos Tevez and Wayne Rooney are having off-field problems; there have been racism scandals and fights over the rules on tackling.
Happily, however, there is still much to make the Premier League a great league to watch and, to paraphrase Mark Twain, any reports of its demise are exaggerated.
