The emphasis in both Italian and Spanish football is in keeping possession, admittedly Spanish tends to be more expansive, but the fact that teams from both these countries would rather make their opponents work for a goal, rather than hand them out on a plate, seems to make some people think it is boring.

This may come as news to some of you, but the idea is to score goals and prevent the opposition from doing so. The standard of defending in English football is woeful, despite the fact we think we have some our best defenders for a while. I think they all have ability, but the likes of Terry, Campbell and Ferdinand have all been found lacking so far, at the highest level.

You don't really think that the "quality" on display here is really better than Italy or Spain, do you? Or are you just confusing this with excitement?

No big difference in amount of goals. Serie A averages 2.48 pr. match, Premier League 2.59. 54,1% of matches in Italy are over 2.5, Premier 54,5%

And another myth is demolished! Though I would add that Italian defending has deteriorated in recent years.

No but your job isn't to entertain a stadium of people every saturday.

Neither is that of a footballer, his primary job is to win. And anyway, some people are more entertained by technical excellence than buffoonery!

Different breeds of football, Spanish and Italian football is slower but the teams can be just as lethal on the counter attack as Arsenal are. The Premiership is more about passion and less quality, but standard of pitches and weather would also have to come into this, the state of pitches due to weather in Spain and Italy is ( I would think) more conducive to passing football than English pitches are.

Should see some of the Spanish pitches sometimes. Obviously Spain is a hot country, and as such sometimes the pitches because really dry and bobbly.

That's lunacy. Ours are bowling greens compared to those in Southern Europe.

Hundreds, if not thousands.
