What Is The Best League In Europe?

With the qualification of all four English clubs into the last 16 of the Champions League (and all as group winners) this week, can the Premiership now be classed as the best league in Europe?

Is Athletic Bilbao’s Cantera Policy Leading Them to Relegation

The cantera policy (which unofficially started in 1912) is seen by many neutrals as restricting Bilbao’s progress and crippling the clubs ambitions.

Boom or Bust

The plight of Leeds United over recent years has highlighted the recent trend of teams that aim for instant success in a ‘Boom or Bust’ attitude. Their relegation in 2004 showed the errors of this approach and hopefully clubs can take heed of this in the future. Not all clubs who have this attitude suffer the same fate as Leeds and there are a handful clubs who have been successful with this policy.
