    I don’t understand this debate. Real Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern (these are the three teams we are really talking about) do better in Europe than the English top clubs because those three clubs have better players. Most of the top players on those teams (Messi, Neymar, Muller, Benzema, James, Iniesta, etc) were never available to the Premier League clubs, and others (Ronaldo), were always going to be in La Liga anyway. Bale is the main exception. At some point (say if the best players in the world at any particular time are from England, North America and Africa vs from Continental Europe and South America), this dynamic will reverse in favor on English teams.

    If you ran an FA Cup style knockout tournament including all teams in Premier League, La Liga, Bundesliga, Serie A and Ligue 1, the Premier League sides would be the most represented in the later rounds because the talent from 3-20 is substantially better than other league’s 3-20. This is because the Premier League as a whole has more money and can buy more players. The amount of money generated by the Premier League generates more investment even in the Championship. There is just more money in the English game.
