    Obviously everyone here follows Premier League football.

    What league do you watch the most though?

    I wonder who here watches the most obscure league.

    I try and keep up with the "top" leagues. I watch United and most of the top four if they're on, I'll watch Barce and Real every week, then normally whatever ESPN show from Serie A or the Bundesliga if they're on.

    Probably more than is healthy.

    Main ones, other than Prem would be Spanish, German, Portuguese, Italian, Argentinean and French (though only since this season). Brazilian where possible too, but not as closely as the others.

    I can't remember why I joined this war.
    Premier League
    Bundesliga
    La Liga
    Serie A

    Those are the leagues I can either watch on Sky or on some other quality stream.

    Would love to see a bit more of Ligue 1 but most of the time when I have the chance to either watch on my tv or a crappy stream I usually chose the good quality over my interest in french football.

    Premiership, Barca and Real from La Liga, and I often watch bundesliga, and sometimes Serie A, but that's rare.

    Same as me, although I do like the Glasgow derbies just for the atmosphere and also the big Italian games like the Milan derby,

    English and Norwegian. I occasionally the two Spanish teams, but if I had bothered to follow a third league more closely, I'd pick the German.

    Premier League first and far most. La Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga - in that order pretty much. Catch the odd glimpse of France, Holland, the Glasgow derby, etc. We are pretty spoiled here in Israel with football from all over. Plenty of other stuff I rarely watch like Brazil or Argentina.

    Israeli football, however, is NOT on my list.

    Some place faaar away... yes, that'll do
    Premier League - roughly 4 games on a weekend plus whatever midweek games are on

    Serie A & La Liga - if there's a game of interest, I'll watch that. There are probably 4-5 teams in Italy and 3-4 teams in Spain that I look out for.

    Don't really watch many full matches of other leagues except an occasional Dortmund-Bayern or something like that. I used to really like watching Argentine football on Fox soccer channel, but haven't done so for a while.

    Barca put me off watching La Liga a few years ago and my interest in Serie A has rapidly decreased in the last few years as well.

    I follow the Premier League and La Liga immensely. Icelandic league is in the summer. Follow the top two divisions. Hell, it's my job so I got to if even if I didn't want to. My team is in the 1st division so those are the games I attend.
    Due to a new sports subscription I've seen more French league games this season. Also seen a some Bundesliga games and very few Serie A and Superligaen games.

    I read somewhat about other leagues that I don't watch (like Germany, France and Italy).

    Currently in Iceland we have players from the Arsenal and out academy and two from the Chelsea academy. One is a former Wales international and the United one was the captain of the reserves and U-18. We also have Shola Ameobi's little brother and Michael Laudrup's son. And a few African internationals. The league just gets more interesting every year :)

    Watching a lot of games from the Premier League, La Liga and Serie A.
    Follow results and occasionally watch the Bundesliga and the Ukrainian League.

    Kind of know what's up in France, Holland, and Russia.

    Well I go to 46 Blue Square Premier matches a season, and to 15-20 Premier League matches. Plus FA Cup, FA Trophy, Champions League etc.

    As for tv, I watch pretty much anything. This season on tv I've watched Premier League, Championship, League 1, League 2, Scottish Premier, La Liga, Serie A, Eredivisie, Bundesliga, Russian League, French Ligue 1, MLS, etc.

    Going to watch Orlando City in July, American third tier I believe, that's pretty obscure.

    Watched 45 minutes of the Russian league since it was on ESPN for whatever reason. Looked absolutely dire.

    Some of the Scottish football games I've caught have been very good scrappy games. It's not the best quality, and I couldn't tell you a good player up there (although Rangers had a young midfielder they played in the Old Firm game who people were talking about) but they're often a lot of fun. Any game with something riding on it is awesome.
