The Premier League was certainly the place to be over the weekend if you wanted to see goals.
Who would have thought that a Premier League fixture at Portsmouth would have produced 11 goals followed by Monday's thrilling encounter at White Hart Lane which produced another eight?
The debate goes on: "Is the Premier League the best league in the world?" and certainly those who advocate that it is, would have had a field day following the weekend fixtures.
Personally speaking I think it is a close call but I'm afraid I would still have to favour Spain's La Liga. Why?! Some of you may be asking. Well, in my humble opinion, I think the players in Spain are technically better and the pace of the game allows them to flourish.
I know there are those of you out there who love the "blood and guts" of the Premier League and I must admit I do at times, but technically I still think we are light years behind La Liga.
The Premiership was launched in 1992 with all the hype you would expect from a big media company, but for me the appeal is beginning to wane.
I, for one, used to watch every televised Premiership fixture but over the years the thought of Bolton v Middlesbrough on a Monday evening has reduced me to joining a gym, to pass the time. I think the fact that the "pay per view" option has now ceased, shows that the appeal of the Premier League is waning and the "fare" on offer is average to say the least.
I'm looking forward to next week's fixtures and a seat in front of the TV on Saturday and Sunday watching the best league in the world.
