I need your collective MGoHelp: I am an admitted novice when it comes to European soccer but have recently become more interested in it. I have a fixed amount of time to spend in the evenings watching games and I'm having trouble deciding even what league to focus on during my time. After reading up a bit, I sense that the UEFA Championship League might be the way to go. But then I read that the British Premier League is the best league overall. And I know that Fox Soccer channel also shows games of the Italian Serie A as well (and probably others too). I guess what I am saying is that I have no f-ing idea what I should be watching. Can anyone help point me in the right direction with respect to the league to focus on? Is the UEFA Championship League the way to go for a late bloomer like me?
(As an aside, I still don't understand how the UEFA Championship League works - how can teams play in it while their regular season is ongoing? For example, how can Arsenal play in it while the Premier League is in-season?)
Thanks in advance.
