Boring Premier League?

With the big four being linked with purches of more than the Gross Domestic Product of some small countries it is evident that Keegan's assertion that Newcastle et al can't compete has certainly got some merit but does this make it boring?

Sunday's fixtures mean that 7 of the 10 games have some relevance for either the title, UEFA cup qualification or relegation... certainly not boring for the clubs involved.

A look around the European leagues would also seem to debunk the theory that we are more boring than our counterparts.

The Scottish league is once again an old firm fight with daylight in third place . This has become so predictable that once again there is a debate on whether they should join the English Premier League.

In Germany Bayern Munich have cliniched the title with two games to play with Werder Bremen, Schalke and Hamburg who are the usual challengers trailing in their wake.

In Portugal Porto are 20 points clear with one game to play.

In Holland the big two of PSV and Ajax have once again finished one two in the league although the success of NEC and FC Twente in third and fourth place is a change from the usual challengers of Feyenoord, AZ and Utrecht.

In Italy Inter , Roma and Juve are miles ahead of the rest, the only surprise the failure of the fourth big four club AC Milan to challenge.

In Spain the only surprise is that Villareal have secured a second place finish ahead of one of the big two in Barcelona.

Sky Sports are reporting that Premeir League attendances have risen to their highest ever level which is surely a contradiction to the premier league is boring theory.

My view is that the Prmeier League isn't boring with all teams capable of getting a result against one of the big four on their day and that in Europe the final tables show that their leagues are far more predictable.
