I think they'll give Valencia and Villareal a real run for their money. They got a briliiant coach and they've bought a lot of players that already know La Liga. They could also be a great team to watch. It's a great thing for La Liga as tbh it's become a bit of a joke the past few seasons.
Just because 2 teams totally dominate La Liga it does not follow that it is a joke of a league...Real Madrid and Barca are most probably the Top 2 sides in Europe (and of course the world) and it is only natural that ordinary Spanish teams will get routinely thrashed by them. When the Big 2 drop points, it really is a big deal, which in a way makes the whole affair quite interesting.
I am not saying that La Liga is the best, but I am not so eager to join the La Liga bashing bandwagon just because the Big 2 are so far ahead of the rest. Surely it would have been better if Valencia and Sevilla for example were as good as Arsenal and Man City, but it would have been much worse in my opinion if La Liga was more like the Bundesliga, with teams that range from mildly shitty to somewhat decent.
In any case, the most important thing is the CL. As long as Barca can win it, let others bitch about the lack of competitiveness in La Liga.
more of these please...
