It's interesting, German football. I'd like to see someone do a case study.
Since 2000, there's been 5 different Bundesliga Champions, the same as England thanks to Leicester and the same as Spain, 1 more than Italy(4) and 2 less than France (7).
It's interesting that there's this outlook growing that it's not competitive in Germany, because Bayern have won 4 on the bounce, but Juve have won 5, PSG 4 and Barcelona 3 of the last 4.
I understand that it can seem odd that Bayern keep buying up domestic talent, but it's hardly a bad policy on their part. You have to ask yourself why other teams, particularly Dortmund, seem to so eager to sell, but then ask yourself, if you were a German player, how easily could you resist the temptation of Bayern and as a club, how do you realistically convince a player to stay once a club like that is interested? This policy is little different to Juve in Italy, having signed the likes of Hernanes, Dybala, Higuain, Zaza amongst others from domestic clubs in recent years.
I'd go as far as saying that the only reason this type of thing doesn't happen more in the Premier League is simply because these clubs aren't producing players of good enough quality, and even when they do, stick such ridiculously high price tags on them (I'm looking at you, Stones) that other clubs simply go out and buy cheaper, and often better, players from abroad.
It's easy to write off the Bundesliga already thanks to this demolition of Werder Bremen, but we need to remind ourselves that Bremen are a team that only avoided relegation by 2 points and have lost some of their better players this summer. Are we going to write off La Liga after Barca's 6-2 defeat of Betis? After all, Betis are a mid table, european contender chasing side...
This post wasn't meant to sound as arsey as it probably does, but I'm tired, heading for bed and not about to go back and change my tone
