Serie A in decline, Serie A is shit, fuck your Serie A you lost another coefficient point to Portugal... I suppose we've all been hearing this shit (some if it quite true) from all our dickhead friends who follow the EPL, die for Barca/Real or suddenly became BuLi "experts". But I don't think the future, or the current situation is that bleak for the Serie A, so I've decided to create sort of a fantasy league of leagues at the World Cup. The rules are:
1. Five leagues are in contention: Serie A, La Liga, EPL, BuLi and Ligue 1
2. Based on the full final squads, each league gets 1 point for every player sent to Brazil
3. Every player selected for the National Teams of the countries represented by the above leagues who does not play in the national league leads to a point deduction.
4. Once the competition starts, every player who actually plays a game gives his league 1 point, bench selection get you half a point, the same negative points apply to actual playing as per point 3 above.
Relegated teams are part of the league, promoted teams are not i.e. based on the 2013-2014 season
As it stands (based on provisional and final lists announced to date) 21 May 2014:
