Need a year to settle into EPL

Hello,

I keep hearing pundits and fans recite, "Players need a year to settle into the EPL" or "It takes awhile to adjust to the pace of the game in England." What does this mean? Does it mean the game is materially different in England than in Germany, Spain, or Italy? Does it mean that players don't need an adjustment period in Germany, Spain, or Italy? Perhaps it means adapting to the culture although the mention of "pace" suggests adapting to the culture is not the case.

I'm curious because I keep hearing this and I don't really follow the other top flight leagues.
