wrong . where the hell have you heard that?
England definetley does not have the most money involved in their league, Spain defintely has more money. Use common sense. Ronaldinho, Owen, Becham, Ronaldo, Zidane, Eto. A perfect example is Owen. Why the hell do you think Engalnd has the most money in their league??? Is it because you live in England??

England easily has the most money involved why do u think the ratings are higher for Champions league games when an english club is playing??
Also spain has only two teams with a good amount of money , Real and Barca but look at the EPL Man Utd, Chelsea Liverpool, Arsenal,

also http://msn.foxsports.com/soccer/pgStory ... geNumber=1

the 20 teams who made the most money in 2004
i counted 8 EPL teams plus the two scottish teams so half the list comes from the UK but i only found two spanish teams real and barca[/url]

5. Juventus

6. Arsenal
2003-2004 Income: £115.0 million

7. Barcelona
2003-2004 Income: £112.0 million

8. Inter Milan

9. Bayern Munich

This is the 2003-2004 soccer's rich list and as you can see most of them are from the EPL. HJK is right but LA LIGA is my favourite.
The rules of soccer are very simple, basically it is this: if it moves, kick it. If it doesn’t move, kick it until it does.

I don't think that money matters in how exciting a league is, it's the quality of the matches

FORÇA BARÇA!

Henry, ruud van nistelrooy, Arjen robben, Drogba,Cisse, Morientes. CRistiano Ronaldo,

most foreign players have a hard time adapting to the premier league anyway

Henry, he isn't english, he isnt exactly a newcomer to the EPL but damn he's a good player. I heard John Harkes say on Fox Sports World that Henry was probably the best player since Pele. And I probably wouldnt doubt it. He's won pretty much everything there is to win. He can do it all, pass, shoot, playmake, dribble...

When Pele used to play other players weren't that good. But if Pele was playing now at any big league he would've had some difficulties. He wouldn't have rised fast to fame.

Seria A is better and they don't have that much money, what makes EPL exciting, I can't remember an exciting game that I have seen, only one years ago when Man Utd were down 3 goals and they came back and won by 2.
