Just watched the game between qpr and Sunderland, half empty stadium and two dire teams thrashing out a no scoreing draw.... Does anyone else think the have not teams are getting worse?

not even close to the best league in the world

ouside Man United, Chelsea, Man City, Tottenham, Arsenal, Everton and Liverpool, the rest of the teams are very average to poor

The EPL has always been built around hype. I've always preferred the more technical football you see on the continent, particularly in Italy and Spain.

Awful to watch.

Serie A has far more attacking sides, a league the English look down on.

It has been for the last few year look at there performances in europe. Chelsea winning the CL covered over a lot of cracks in the semi against Barcelona they were played off the park in both legs the same against Bayern Munich in the final.

Man city champions of England have,nt won a game, Chelsea champions of Europe need a favour to get out there group.

To be fair you named 7 teams there that you consider to be good, that isn't bad.

Only Man City are a better side than they were in the recent past.

Chelsea despite being champions of Europe aren't a better side than they were under Mourinho, Arsenal are a million miles away from their invincibles. Uniteds team is a poorer side than the one that won the CL in 2008 and Liverpool are no where near where they were even 3 years ago.

Whilst Real Madrid and Barcelona have became the best 2 sides in the world.

Add west brom and we have 8 decent teams.
