English football - A reality check

Finally, the English football players have been shown to what they actually are - well below International class. The Premier League organisers can shout from the top of their lungs that they have the best league in the world, but you just have to watch the action from leagues such as Germany to realize the huge difference in class. The play is much faster, more open and result oriented, as opposed to the dour football that the EPL offers.

It is worth thinking over why very few extremely talented football players from other countries either do not play in the EPL, or play well below their par. The English game just does not allow individual flair and creativity. Sure, football is a team game, but you need the creative players to flourish for the game to evolve and continue to be attractive to the millions of fans who pay good money to watch the game.
