Ranking Players Who Define Their Leagues

8 March 2023

Hello Rank Squad!

We’re going a little bit abstract this week, to think about what defines each of Europe’s Top 5 leagues in their current state, and then try to apply that criteria to work out which player (currently in the league) best represents that league right now. We take a trip through the Bundesliga, La Liga, Serie A, the Premier League and Ligue 1 to find those who carry the spirit of the leagues within their own games.

Things We Love discusses the madness enveloping top teams beating each other at the summit of European football, looks at two players considering switching their national allegiance to Spain, and talks briefly about Fiorentina’s much-needed resurgence as we get to the sharp end of the season.

There’s a Melon of the Week straight out of the red mist playbook, a food-themed Shoutout of the Week, and Gibberish discusses the shock events that went down at Jack’s birthday at the weekend.

It’s Ranks!
