    I don't think this has improved the league, if anything I'd want more homegrown talent. People don't watch the league for quality - La Liga and Serie A can do that - they watch it for the controversy, surprises and the British Bull Dog spirit

    Great answer, yet it surprises me that nobody seems bothered by the fact that only 5 teams have won it in 20 years, yes I agree that's it competitive compared to other leagues, but the top flight was far more competitive prior to 1992.

    Glad that somebody mentioned the English aspect. That, for me is one of the key reasons why it has soared in popularity, because the names of the clubs and players sound vaguely familiar to fans say in the US and Canada.

    I can understand why people say that. But personally I prefer the Championship, anyone can beat anyone, its totally unpredictable, the promotion and relegation races are exciting, then there's the playoffs. Awesome!

    What about the Football League? Good old fashioned football without the glamour of the Premier and without the same old teams dominating every year.

    Another great answer. I actually enjoy the Bundesliga more than the EPL. Better crowds, atmosphere, more home grown players, better financial health and greater competitiveness amongst the teams.
