Has the Premier League declined?Watch
In terms of competitiveness around Europe, 4 points seperate the top 4 in the Bundesliga, with RB Leipzig in 2nd, Getafe are 3rd in La Liga, Lazio are a point off 1st in Seria A with Inter topping the table having not won the league in a decade! If anything things are starting to heat up again in Europe.
Yes it been less competitive for English clubs at the top in terms of numbers fighting for the title. The quality at the bottom of the table is much better (as clubs are flush with so much TV money).
In the middle, some clubs are on the way up and some on the way down.
In Europe, we've been much better - last season we had Spurs/Liverpool in CL final and Chelsea/Arsenal in the EL final. Which would suggest the quality is better compared to their counterparts in Europe.
Just because Man Utd and Arsenal are currently **** doesn't mean that the whole league has declined, just means they have.
I think the fact the 4th place team as already lost about 9 games says it all
