Does anyone have xbox one lol? My gamertag is LeoMessiOwnz19 haha obviously made a while ago. I cant find any opponents on seasons.
Ps preferably aussies not being racist lol just for connection purposes
Gary linkner tweeted this during the match .

" We might have to stop pretending that the Premier League's the strongest in the world. Most entertaining it may be, but La Liga is stronger."

" And it's not just Real Madrid and Barca. Other Spanish teams have won have won the Europa League 6 out of the last 10 years."

First thing EPL fan boys replyed with was that only barcelona and both madrid teams are better and rest of teams are pub level teams & off course they didn't forgot to bring the unfair distribution of tv rights . I just love the ignorance of EPL fan boys , they don't know s**t about Laliga yet love to express their opinion at every possible chance , funny stuff is that this pub level teams are doing much better with their less revenue then most of EPL teams with fair revenue from Tv deals .
+3
Let them be. They'd be crushed if they gave in to the idea of their league not being superior to all the rest. A little over a year ago, I would have also said the Bundesliga was better. The PL spends like ten times more money than any other league and they're still not the best. Talk about inefficiency.

That said, the ones in charge there do realize it and have been picking the best players and some of the best coaches from Spanish teams away for a good while now. The fans may choose to remain ignorant to the Spanish dominance, most of the presidents and coaches there are not. Some of their clubs have also come to realize the core of the problem is their poor academies and ancient vision on football. I think that the big clubs who are investing in new methods of teaching their talents and a general better focus on their youth teams will reap the benefits in the long term.
+3
Lol,they will write off this result as a one off and still pretend that Real and Barca will struggle to cope up with their "fast paced" style of football. Let them say what they want. Results are there for all to see.
People confuse quality and entertainment La Liga is a stronger league by far but the EPL is more entertaining.
+1
^ What we find entertatining is a matter of context. The best game ever in the Japanese football league will not be too entertaining for me because of lack of context.

Try following Valencia, Athletic, Sociedad, Sevilla and Villarreal; and the fighting minnows Levante, Celta, Deportivo and Rayo Vallecano for a year and then tell me you don't find La Liga entertaining.
+2
Certainly in broadcasting ways,epl is much enjoyable.but if you want real football,try following la liga regularly or if you want extreme attacking football,follow bundes liga as well..
EPL hasn't been regarded as stronger than La Liga in a while, since Ronaldo came into the league. People confuse the term "better" as it could be in reference to entertainment and other sorts. People have their own tastes and preference, but EPL is widely more entertaining due to the competition and publicity. Still, La Liga is obviously stronger in terms of football, only Chelsea could have a say.
I guess I should rephrase both leagues are entertaining for different reasons I personally prefer the BPL but that's just my opinion, in terms of which league is stronger La Liga wins no contest!
+1
I still disagree with La liga undoubtedly being stronger then EPL, with teams other then RM, Barca and AM. Dont think Europa league is a fair example since most EPL teams competing in the Europa dont take it as seriously as the Spanish sides, , they usually rest key players and focus primarily on the epl especially due to the Thursday match days.
Lol what I find funny avout the epl is the way they all throw money around for average players and how they seem to do little or no research on players or think about how they will fit into the team. You see whenever liverpool show interest in a player both tottenham and chelsea are lining up to sign them as well. I know rodgers rushed into buying balotelli because of the name and the talent but he really doesnt suit liverpools style. Its kind of a joke on him because remy or even etoo probably would have been a lot better. But in all honesty as a liverpool fan I cant say that chelsea or man city would have been out played in the same manner as liverpool were today, we are a shadow of last years team
+1
yeah it's becoming a bit of a joke, english teams getting their asses kicked, or otherwise being massive disappointments, all over europe, except for chelsea.

the gap isn't due to technical qualities, that's for sure. the players at arsenal, city chelsea man utd etc are as good as you would find anywhere that's not barca bayern real madrid and maybe psg. but the playing style isn't reaping rewards and possibly the balance in the team isn't there except for with chelsea. maybe it's the coaching and style of football, because it doesn't really make sense to me otherwise.
+1
I honestly think Sevilla, Valencia, Atletico Madrid could all compete for top 3 spots if placed in BPL. Last year's Atletico would easily top the league. The thing about the BPL is besides teams like Chelsea, City, and Arsenal the rest of the league is all full of average or below average foreign players who rely on pace and strength. In terms of individual player technical ability the BPL doesn't come close to La liga. La liga actually has a lot of Spanish players in the league that developed through youth systems.

I feel like every year top BPL teams who have money just buy out the best Spanish players in La liga from our smaller teams and claim them, when in reality they were raised and developed in Spain and Catalonia
Isco: what a player.He supposed to play cam yet he took defensive duties today and managed it quite brilliantly.I hope Carlo keep not pick him in favor of James,which eventually make him lost his patience and leave capital.I see him end up here and I hope it could be a true words..
+1
I honestly wished we would have gotten him, and we probably would have had Thiago Alcantara not left us like he did.
La Liga for the WORLD!

Gary Lineker is one of the few who often speaks the unclouded truth. I'm not sure if his period as a Barça player has anything to do with that, but he's not one of those narrow-minded fans who only ever watch English football and then say the other leagues suck.

The joke is that a majority of PL fans are still adamant their league is the highest level and that players who aren't built like a tank can't do well there, even though ALL players who come from La Liga do amazingly well there.
I second that Jeroen , he is one of the few English analyst which can be taken seriously and ya you're damn right that's because of time he spend at Barcelona ;)
never gets old this one

But still, barca and real will struggle against the likes of stoke :P
Ronaldo injured?
lol you fell for dagaza's joke... Ancelotti was resting him
+3
No , that ice bag this is for kindoff relaxing
Im saying because he had an ice bag in his knee after the game but I guess it was nothing!
Oh i see, my bad.
Freaking Glenn Johnson! lol
+4
Lol..rm teaching some lessons to Liverpool..
+2
Man mignolet is been quite s**t this season , he can be blamed for all 3 goals

Atleast BVB are leading , goal and assist from Reus and 2 for Auba :')
Liverpool plastered to the wall already and it's half-time. reminds me of when Spurs got a similar beating from RM a few years back.

As for BVB - it's so clear that they've just given up on the league.
Whatever guys,many epl fans think rm n barca winning comfortably in la liga because this league is s**t.though am a follower of Liverpool and despite certainly dis appointing with score line,am quite enjoying this because it would shut them up..
I feel really sad for LFC.. This liverpool side is no match for Madrid.. Everyone saw this coming..
+1
Im not trying to add insult to injury but is Liverpool playing with 10 men? Cause it sure looks like it.
To be honest Liverpool haven't been impressive in the league this season at all, so this game should surprise no one.

I'm only noticing this now, but Neymar's goal to game ratio is almost one to one this season right?
Looks like he's adapting to the team quickly. I feel like he's going to dominate world football once the two demigods we have atm decide to retire.

Maybe he's been reading Mt1234's comments aimed at him and uses them as motivation to get better! :p
+3
There are a lot of things different about this season. The team is showing a lot more energy and hunger. Messi seems a lot more motivated than last year. We are not struggling with defense. All of this has helped neymar. Plus he has acclimatized to European football. IMO he did quite well last year. He just happened to join barca at a time when the club was going through transition and turmoil. Lot of people doubted him. Now he's proving them wrong.
One word: Lucho!
+1
One word : messi,neymar is nothing without messi, lol..he will going to carry us forward when little wizard slow down.

To be fair with mt1234,he was little show man and cared himself more than his team,but barca changed him to be a low profile guy which actually makes him a better player..
+2
Biggest difference is that he has gained about 7kg. So he isn't getting thrown off the ball easily. I know the 7kg gain in weight isn't that visible to the naked eye. But if you watch him dribble this season, you can see he is able to stay up a little bit better this season .
Hari,

Could you link me to where you found he gained 7kg? Or is this an observation you made? I think he has gained a little weight but 7kg is actually alot of weight for a footballer or anyone for that matter.

Id kill to gain 7kg of muscle
+1
It's easy Danny.take a plate full of French fries with enough mayonnaise in it in four times a day, continues for two weeks.then you will see the magic;)
I read that on barcastuff from twitter. Not sure what the source is. It is most likely MD or Sport. Yeah, I know it doesn't look like he gained a lot of weight, but he does look a little better. He was far too skinny last year around.
Very good ill look into it when i get off work,

4ever, no thanks haha mcdonalds is poison lol
