Premier League: Why are people saying it’s boring and the level of soccer is low?

Europe League

The Premier League claims to be the best league in the world, but it is said that there are many boring games and that the level is low. This may be because the matches are boring, but the reality is that despite their financial strength, they are not able to win many matches in the UEFA CL. I will explain the specific reasons.


What is the Premier League? One of the best leagues in the world

The Premier League is a professional soccer league in England. In soccer, there are many leagues called the Premier League around the world, so it is easy to get them confused and confused. However, when we talk about the Premier League, we usually refer to England. The Premier League has the following characteristics:

The forces are evenly matched

Although the level of the Premier League is lower than that of Real Madrid and Barcelona in their heyday, there are still a lot of teams that are above the average level. There are a total of 20 teams participating in the Premier League, but the Premier League is probably the only league in which the lower-tier teams are made up of players representing each country. For this reason, the top teams are unable to easily commit turnovers and are forced to continue fighting without sacrificing their strength.

Leagues with long running periods

The Premier League has a longer running period than the major European leagues such as La Liga, Serie A, and Bundesliga. The Premier League starts in early August and is packed with matches until late May of the following year. In other words, the period of playing league matches is as long as 10 months, and the off period is only 2 months. It’s a very crowded and tough league.

have financial strength

The Premier League is generally well-funded. This trend became more pronounced in the 2000s. The reason why the Premier League is so rich is simply because of the high income it receives from broadcasting rights. The Premier League, whose games are broadcast in more than 200 countries, generates annual revenue of about 270 billion yen in Japanese yen. In Serie A, the amount is 120 billion yen, and in the Bundesliga, it is approximately 100 billion yen, so you can see that the environment is completely different.

Reasons why the Premier League is said to be low-level and boring

There is a reason why overseas Premier League teams are said to be low-level, uninteresting, and boring. Even though it is said to be the world’s best and has the best financial power in the world, it is criticized for being of a low level because the following points have been pointed out. Currently, the league is active in transfers, but it seems that many people do not enjoy it as a sport. There are players and coaches who excite the fans, but the impression is that they are lacking.

Ranking of the richest soccer clubs in the world

Deloitte has announced the ranking of the richest clubs in the world for the 2021-2022 season. This ranking is compiled by Deloitte based on revenue per season. As you can see, the majority of clubs are in the Premier League. In terms of money alone, the Premier League is the best in the world. Below is the original information.

It was around 2000 that the Premier League dominated in terms of financial power. However, if you have this much money, you should be able to steal promising players from the opposing team and win by monopolizing them, but in reality, it doesn’t work that way. The reason and rationale for this are explained below.

UEFA Champions League winning team

Many of the winning teams in the UEFA Champions League are actually clubs outside of the Premier League. Even with all this money, Premier League teams aren’t winning as much as they say. Italian clubs have also been struggling in recent years, but England are still struggling despite having several times more financial power than Italy. Looking at the results, it is no exaggeration to say that the 2000s were the era of Milan, and the 2010s were the era of Spain with Real Madrid and Barcelona. What will happen after the 2020s?

2022-2023Manchester CityEngland
2021-2022Real MadridSpain
2019-2020Bayern MunichGermany
2017-2018Real MadridSpain
2016-2017Real MadridSpain
2015-2016Real MadridSpain
2013-2014Real MadridSpain
2012-2013Bayern MunichGermany
2009-2010Inter MilanItaly
2007-2008Manchester UnitedEngland
2006-2007AC MilanItaly

By the way, England haven’t won in the EL either. This is introduced in the article below, but Sevilla is now in a monopoly, and the Premier League teams are currently completely powerless. In other words, it would be a lie to say that the Premier League is strong from top to bottom.

There are too many matches and the quality is low.

One of the reasons why the Premier League is said to be boring is because of the large number of matches. Actually, England has a lot of cup competitions. England has one more cup competition than any other league. This has become a problem as it is said that the quality of match play has declined. Even if you gather players from not only the Japanese national team, but also from other countries such as France, England, and Spain, you won’t be able to play a good game if you overwork them.

It’s boring with all the hand-to-hand combat

Premier League matches are often said to be boring because they are all about hand-to-hand combat. Their rival, La Liga, uses possession-based soccer to display brilliant soccer that makes full use of technique, making the roughness of the Premier League even more noticeable. Also, as you can see from the UEFA Champions League, Premier League teams often have rough plays. Rough play, which was overlooked in Japan, is difficult to adapt to on the international stage and may not be effective in some cases.

Premier League is not a top 6

The Premier League is said to be a six-strong league consisting of Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool, Tottenham, Arsenal, and Chelsea, but that is not the case. In fact, if you look at the past 10 years, the winning team has clearly been Manchester City, and it can be said that it is almost the top league. To say they are in the top six is clearly an exaggeration from Premier League nerds. If there were really a top six, the winning team would be different every year.

2022-2023Manchester City
2021-2022Manchester City
2020-2021Manchester City
2018-2019Manchester City
2017-2018Manchester City
2015-2016Lester City
2013-2014Manchester City
2012-2013Manchester City

The Premier League is said to be the most commercially successful league in the world, and there are many streaming services that broadcast it live. Therefore, be sure to watch the game live and enjoy the game.
