As a soccer fan, it's great to see the huge number of matches televised, and that's without having to shell out the $15/month for Setanta.
Bundesliga is so underrated; the level of play in every area is very impressive

On the other end, EPL is very overrated IMO

So...
Radio-Canada - Impact
CBC - TFC (**** them)
RDS/TSN - EPL
Sportsnet/Score - Serie A
TV5 - Ligue 1

Is Champions League back on RDS/TSN? Also, it would be nice if Sportsnet restarted showing some Europa League games(They used to show some nice UEFA Cup games). But still, we're starting to get a lot of choice. This will make good week-ends : soccer, football, Habs.

This is BS, I know I am biased but I'd rather watch Serie A over the Premiership any day of the week. Some of the best players in the world and still good quality after the the top 4 or 5 teams. I'd rather watch Cagliari agianst Udinese, then Tottenham against Wiggan and so on and so forth. Same thing in Spain and Germany imo, the top teams are loaded but the quality drops off quicker than it does in Italy imo.

You are biased.

Most Serie A games are almost unwatchable. EPL is a alot quicker and much more exciting.

By the way, Tottenham would finish top 2 in Serie A and could challenge to win it.


Serie A is ancient history.

I agree that the EPL is more exciting,it is more offensive minded compared to the Seria A.

Oh and by the way,Tottenham wouldn't be in the top 5 in Italy

I would rather watch the beautiful game played with pinpoint passing, exceptional defence, and great skill than longball sloppy play with artificially created scoring chances, much similar to MLS(obviously with much more skill though). And I doubt Tottenham would be top 2 in Italy, Inter, Milan, Roma, and maybe Sampdoria would be better imo.

This assessment is way off. Inter won all of Europe, remember? EPL is terribly overrated because of the style of play.

Sweet, this is somewhat related to the habs, or the city of Montréal how ?

I highly doubt anyone in Italy wants to watch BCHL games.

Maybe you missed the OT at the beginning of the thread title? You can ignore threads if you wish you know...

People are funny when they try to compare leagues.

All leagues have pros and cons, I watch tons of soccer and IMHO if you want to compare leagues and football in general it's almost impossible.

Personnally I prefer watching the EPL but if I want closer games and very good football I watch the bundesliga. La liga is great but outside the top 6 it becomes very painfull to watch. La ligue 1 is also very entertaining because every games are hard to predicts. Italian Serie A is very defensive and at slow pace, it's very hard to be into the game unlike you are a follower. Anyway, champion league is still the best IMO.

Huh? I think there's only three players with Italian origins now, and all of them were born or atleast grew up in North America...

That's a weak reason...

One of the only good reasons to really look forward to MLS is quality of broadcasting and the improvement of the teams installations. Gotta admit the away games right now are painful to watch. But this reason is not valid for home games! With MLS, the level of play won't go up significantly, only the seriousness and profesionnalism of the Impact's opponents will.

As for now, aime ta ville, supporte ton club!

I always see Italian Serie A on Fox Sports World Canada. I wonder what they're going to show now.

If Dzeko and Krasic end up at Juve like they want to, they'll be in better shape for sure.


Either way... Go United.
