Iker Casillas is of the opinion that the Clasico is losing some of its lustre because Real Madrid and Barcelona are now clashing so regularly.
Used to be a must watch, now a meh watch. And to think people say La Liga is better than the premiership, joke.
Maybe not La Liga but it's two top teams top any in the premier league. not a joke.
It's easy to say that but we don't know how they would cope in the Premier League. Small teams parking the bus. The small cramped but loud stadia. Playing the full 90 mins against teams at full throttle. The injuries. One thing is, it would be interesting!
LOL because Real keep losing Casillas "its not fun anymore, i wanna go home"
There's just more competition in the Premier League, that's it. Which is "easy to say" when LA Liga has the two best teams in the world. IMO, it's always a pleasure to watch Valencia play, and Levante's recent rise makes their games interesting to watch.
That tends to happen when you lose most of the recent ones
lmao that from a raiders fan.
Did i hurt your feelings? lol
Yeah you hurt my feelings, lmao.
Please step it up Real Madrid, it's not even a clasico anymore, it's just a match that is dominated by Barcelona. I'm not a fan of either teams, but it would be nice to see Real Madrid give it all they got against Barca. At least give them a challange.
Maybe people have lost interest seeing as Sky Sports are constantly ramming Borecelona and Madrid games down our throught every damn week. I live in England. I wanna see English games. I'd personally much prefer to watch a Premier League, Championship, Division 1/2, Blue Square Conference or Evo-Stik game anyday over boring El Clasico.
Not just El Clasico. European games between top English teams and their european counterparts used to be a big event, because that kind of clash only occured about 10 times a season. Now they seem like they're every other week. Too many teams in tournament - and therefore too many matches that take the shine off of those clashes. Too commonplace.
However, give me an El Clasico over Premiership football any day. How anyone can say that La Liga teams wouldn't cope with the Premiership, I don't know. They do well enough in the European tournaments. That wouldn't change on a week by week basis. It's the football played that does the talking. Unquestionably, their football is pure class in this era. Results speak for themselves. And I support a Premiership team!
because Spanish teams have little babies playing in their teams. They dive alot and the English league is for real men, at least it used to be
Diving is seen in all leagues, unless you are biased towards your own favorite league.
I didnt say that they dont dive in the EPL just that they dive alot in Europe, Italians are worse offenders.
I'm sorry but in terms of entertainment, Epl is way better especially this season with some big fixtures ending with shocking scorelines. Chelsea 3-5 Arsenal Man Utd 1-6 Man City Man Utd 8-2 Arsenal You won't even be able to compare the last el clasico to the above matches.
I don't understand why these leagues cannot do something like a salary cap and one star transfer spending. Meaning any team can spend any amount on one player in any transfer window but after that can only spend a certain amount, like 15 million or something. This still allows big money earning teams to grab a star, but most importantly keeps teams more competitive and lowers these bloated wages being handed out.
That's because.. A: Barcelona keep winning it or B: It's marred by pathetic behaviour from both sets of teams.. one team has players going for the oscars the other is attempting to make UFC highlight reels with it's kicks.
Yeah, it`s all about who`s the most theatrical. It`s bloody sickening watching barcelona brats lie down screaming, then stands up like nothing happened. Especially that fag pyoul. I`d smash his face if I`d met him in real life.
I'd like to see you try and smash Puyol's face only to get your arse put on the ground. The old diving excuse is just that, an excuse from madrid fans. The players i've seen dive are busquets and villa. Maybe if rm defenders were more disciplined and skilled, then they could steal the ball cleanly.
I don`t like spanish football monkey. Whiners will always be smashed by justice.
Why do you bother answering?
LOL they'll be smashed by justice? Is that why they were rated as the best team of 2011? All teams have divers, it's just convenient to call out the best team in the world on diving when you see 1 or 2 guys on their team do it. I've seen them win all their games fairly, and diving made no difference in their games.
