The battle for 4th in England is much tougher than anywhere else in Europe.
Fact is, if you looked at the champions league stats over the last two seasons there is plenty of argument to suggest that Gomez is a better goalscorer than Ronaldo. The only reason Ronaldo has more goals in that period is because he's playing in an easier league.
Not really. The Bundesliga has produced more top 4 members over the years than the Premier League.
I think that you arer under-rating La Liga's depth. Like T-C mentioned Bilbao dominated Man United over 2 legs last season, and they only just got into Europe for this season.
Look at all these Spanish imports that have come to the Prmeier League. Mata, Silva, Michu, Carzola have all come from La Liga and are setting the EPl alight.
