And we’re done. I don’t think I did a good job of doing what I set out to do. It’s tough to try and look at things with such a wide view, but I think the focus was too narrow. Too much became about a select few teams and a couple of outliers more than an actual overview. Clubs in the middle of the pack and even those involved in close relegation battles were scarcely mentioned.
There’s no way I could have gone through this and not come out with a better idea of certain teams or players, given how little I knew before, but I do feel better placed than I was when I started it. I feel like I have things to check in for or watch, rather than going in and feeling lost. It’s a bit late in the day now, but it also makes the Champions League matches remaining more exciting, having looked at how teams compare in their domestic leagues.
I’m looking forward to hopefully watching and following the mentioned leagues more often now. Especially seeing how Roma play and the huge number of talented youngsters playing in Spain. If you’re in a similar boat and wanted to get to know a bit more about some of the European leagues then hopefully some of the above has proved useful. Even if most of it was just finding different ways of saying “hey, Barcelona are good.”
