Spanish and EU players cannot switch between teams in the same division during a season, and teams register a fixed first team squad of 25 players for the whole footballing year.

Each is comprised of the top 20 teams in their respective countries (the Bundesliga only has 18 teams), with each team competing against each other twice, once at home and once away, for a total of 38 matches per season (34 for the Bundesliga).
Also, the bottom three teams in each league are relegated to the country's second division -- the Football League Championship (England), Segunda Division (Spain), Serie B (Italy), Ligue 2 (France) and Second Bundesliga (Germany) -- while three of the top teams in that lower division are promoted.
And of the top six or seven leagues, no one league can truly say it's better than another and no team can claim to be the "world champion." Simply look at the Champions League for confirmation -- five different teams from five different countries have won the competition the past five years.

The reigning Spanish league champions still have the core of last year's Champions League winning team (playmakers Ronaldinho and Deco, defender Carlos Puyol and striker Samuel Eto'o) and added versatile Italian defender Gianluca Zambrotta and experienced forward Eidur Gudjohnsen in the off-season.
Barcelona boasts a roster teaming with superstars and they're bristling with confidence after winning their second straight Spanish league and their first European title in 14 years last season.
This year's field includes a pair of newcomers (Levski Sofia and Copenhagen), some teams that are making their return after a bit of an absence (Bordeaux, Steaua Bucharest and Galatasaray to name a few) and clubs that, quite frankly, are fortunate to even be competing in the tournament (Celtic, Anderlecht, Spartak Moscow and Shakhtar Donetsk).
