ok, so the dutch league is probably like a third tier league these days... but there's no denying that the german league is a step behind right now.

whether you like serie a or not is besides the point.  i don't like the hooliganism that is rampant right now either, but on the pitch, its vastly superior to the bundesliga.  i think only the la liga surpasses it for quality... with the epl a distant 3rd.

i don't enjoy watching the epl as much as serie a.

granted, i'm a HUGE milan fan, but i still think top to bottom its one of the best leagues

for Milan I tend to favor the brazilian players more,

whether you like serie a or not is besides the point.

your right, maybe I should catch a game sometime.

It seems to me that most of the better german players like to stick to the Bundesliga for some reason.

I really enjoy the energy the fans bring to those games.

I've been racking my brains, running through my record collection in my mind to tell you what records are my secret shame and I've decided i have none. I love everything I own and am proud of it. Music should bring joy, not guilt.

you're right there... most of the good germans stay there.

same can be said for most italians too (minus inter which has only 1 italian in its regular starting xi).

its the english that realize that they are behind, and need to pluck players from other leagues

I've always been a red devil.  they'll have a hard time following last years success but all I want is a win against chelsea this year.

This opportune physical form
Is worth more than a wish-granting gem.
You only gain its like the once.
So hard to get, so easily destroyed,
It's like a lightning bolt in the sky.

Contemplate this, and you will realize
All worldly actions are but winnowed chaff,
And night and day you must
Extract some essence from your life.
I, the yogi, practiced this way;
You, wanting liberation, do the same!
