Really english and italian football at 1 and 2 please. the only 2 league that have legitimate claims for the number #1 spot is la liga and the bundesliga. no other league has any grounds to say they are the best.

Davy 40: When was the last time a Dutch club did anything in Europe, 1990's Ajax? Dutch league isn't top 10, no way. Very talented players, but the league is weak.

What about Ukraine, Shakhtar Donetsk won the Uefa Cup two years ago, Dynamo Kyiv? Ukrainian league is top 10.

Why not?
The English Premier League has more depth than any pro football league.
Bottom 6 really suck in most countries but in England it's not that bad, bottom 6 teams in Spain just give up when they have to play Barcelona/Madrid and don't waste energy/risk any injuries, you will never see this in England.
