    The Bundesliga, eh? You’ve been spending too much time with those Guardian-types haven’t you.

    Don’t get me wrong, for an hilarious bit of knockabout fun you have to go a long way to beat Hun football. The sheer fact you can stand, drink beer and pay tuppence ha’penny to get in is a winner even before kick-off. The fact of the matter is that the League is still in recovery and the shaky quality does show as a result.

    Thw whole question of what’s the best league in the world is bogus anyway, what are we working on quality or entertainment – we all know that the two don’t necessarily go hand in hand.

    If we’re looking at a balance of the two then it still comes down to the very boring though accurate summary that it’s between La Liga and Serie A – simply because they’re where all the world’s best players play. La Liga has been a fantastic competition this year. Serie A was never going to be good this season but hopefully with everyone starting on zero next season it should be a different matter.

    Everybody and their gran knows that the Welsh Premier League is THE most exciting league in the world.

    I mean look take the facilities; Caersws, a fence and some changing rooms; Airbus UK, a fence and some changing rooms, top drawer!! Consequently we have average crowds that would rival Iceland’s league.

    We have a standard of play that is enough to get any gourment football watcher’s mouth dribbling; Rhyl finished second with a glorified pub team full of bouncers.

    Just think, all of this is a short train away!!
