Did anyone see the Racing Santander v Real Madrid game. I thought it was hilarious. Santander winner through 2 late penalties. The defending from Madrid was aweful and there was a rugby tackle by Cannavaro which was easily a penalty in either rugby or football cause he didnt have the ball. 2 sent off for madrid onegiven to a player who had come on for about 2 minutes before getting it.

For once the footballers were as big a clowns as the ESPN commentary team. That's Smyth with a Y in the ole onion bag.

La Liga is sh*t.

Three for me, and two for them.

Actually its usually pretty good.  Good teams to watch are Real Zaragoza, Sevilla and Osasuna.

Barca usually win but are getting to be a bit of a Chelsea (eg play poorly then a superstar scores an unlikely spec goal to win).

Its also great watching Athletico failing to reach potential season after season with Torres especially never quite justfying his superstar tag.

What is poor is that the bottom teams give up against the top sides too easily - more fight in Sheffield Utd and Watford than in those guys.

Yeah - I think it is pretty good and I watch it a fair bit.

Sevilla are my pick of the teams to watch - they have some great players. I would love to see Danny Alves ply his trade in the Premiership.

Zaragoza is pretty much made up of lots of guys who never quite made it at the bigger clubs (Aimar et al) but have gelled into a very good side - similar to the Villarreal of 2006.

Certainly much better than the Serie A!

COmpletely disagree.  If ESPN could sort out the picture and the commentary then it would be fantastic.  The depth in the league is far better, the technical ability of the players in general is very high and although Madrid and Barcelona have been strong recently there is plenty of competition for the title.  Plus some ridiculiusly good goals...

The picture quality does spoil it for me I'm afraid.

Tommy is unrivalled as the world's worst commentator and I'm not sure why the pictures are so awful - we can get perfectly good pictures of the Premier League but route them through America and you don't get to see much. But I enjoy watching it as a chnage from the Premiership, and Champions League is briiliant aaprt from same issues of commentary and picture quality.
 
Would be good if the Chelsea v Liverpool matches could take an English feed.

Sorry, meant to say better than the Premier League (which I assume most are comparing La Liga to)
 
Recently ESPN seem to have a better feed from the Champions League games, but they can definitely get a proper picture sometimes.   Recently in an FA Cup game which was being broadcast on both Sky Sport 1 and ESPN (can't remember which, musn't have been a good one) the Sky Sports 1 version clicked over to the English commentary, but not the ESPN.  Odd.  Also, for about 20 minutes in the first half of the Arsenal Liverpool FA Cup game the picture clicked over the a crisp version of premier league quality.  Then after half time it was back to the grainy version.
 
Anyone able to shed any light at all on this?

Have to disagree. La Liga is a top class competition but it is not the best in the world. There are quality players in La Liga. However, some things that are frustrating about La Liga is the poor picture quality and how many (not all, but many) of the players dive and fake injuries to get free kicks.loyalgunner2007-06-19 16:24:15

Nah La Liga is f**king bollocks the football is boring as f**k nothing like the EPL which is fast and exciting and the atmosphere is sh*t the fans have no f**king idea i mean you may aswell place the two teams on the moon and you'd get more atmposhere!!! If i had a choice between Arsenal v Man Yoo or even Fulham v Sheffield instead of Real v Barca or two rubbish La Liga sides i know who i'd choose every time.

Also Serie A is sh*t.

Three for me, and two for them.

We saw perfectly well that Sevilla are a good team when they played Spurs.  I think all the top leagues have merit and Buffon is being to dismissive.  Osasuna versus Fulham would be an Osasuna win.

The league that has fallen away in recent times is the Bundesligia.  Serie A lacks some depth, but EPL and the Spanish Primera are good right through(even if the bottom teams sometimes give up too easily against the top sides).

did anyone see the barca vs getafe game, i don't really like la liga but this messi goal was awesome, it was just like Maradona's one against england , carbon copy almost. Buffon is being a bit over the top with his criticism of la liga, i know epl is 10 times better but would you rather watch nothing or la liga?

I'd rather watch La Liga than nothing of course adam!!! But i'd actually rather watch the A-League than La Liga and that says something!!!

Also Messi's goal was world class but let's not build this guy up yet he may end up a flop.

Tommy Smyth with a Y is cool though
 
I don't believe anyone would think this unless they were totally insane or on a wind up.
 
Here is some of the feedback he has had.

The UEFA Cup final   Sevilla versus Espanyol shows the League is strong as I said before.

I expect Sevilla to win.
