He is good at passing, why is he in LA LIGA!!!!!!!???????? He should have stayed in EPL, more long balls.

Seems, all England does is long ball, and EPL too. Pretty boring to watch.

I just don't find what's exciting about EPL, maybe because I don't like 1 team that much, like La Liga, Barcelona is there and so on.

Definately LA LIGA or SERIE A in my opinion. I don't why I hate so much EPL maybe it's their style of play which is same. The good side of EPL are the amazing goals, the finishings are absolutely maticulous.
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 agree, La Liga and Seria A are the best.

roberto carlos and Totti and Zidane and Mihajlovic are all bette at free kicks than beckem.
Do you know anything about free kick takers? The only one of those names that beats Beckham is Zidane. Roberto Carlos has possibly the worst free kick ration of any "specialist" in the world. He has hit some amazing ones in his time, but all he does is try to burst the net 35 yards.

Beckham is a very good player, but he isn't worldclass. He doesn't need to beat the full-back when he is on form... he just whips the ball around them.
He certainly was better at Man United, and was at his best before he calmed down as it were.

As stupid as it sounds, when he used to get sent off a lot he was a far greater player, because his hunger and drive made him the most energetic player in the world. He was EVERYWHERE on the pitch, closing players down etc.

And I rate the Premier League as higher than Serie A, certainly. Maybe Serie A hsa more very good teams, but the EPL has higher quality overall. And La Liga is excellent too.

I think the EPL is the best however, because the football is almost always end to end stuff... much more exciting than the boring, negative Italian game.

exactly. he was so much better with man utd, because he would make things happen. madrid definitely don't need more players that try to do that, but it's not like anyone is helping too much as it is. one thing i have to say though, mihajlovic is at least as good as beckham. the others (excluding zidane) are both just big names people try to pass of as "free kick specialists." sure they score some, but so does everyone once in a while. anyway, beckham was better at man u. i guess that was my point i wanted to make

True, but that does not mean he is playing up to par comparing him when he was playing with Man. U.

Yes, he is overrated-it's all about the looks.
No explaining necessary to why he's always looked at

Totti and Mihajlovic are better.

La Liga players can play in EPL, look at Luis Garcia, he is killing it.

Seria A is more exciting to me because they are into the game more, almost a fight everytime, EPL long dead balls, BLAHHH boring.
