The Champions League Thread


#2314

90% of the clubs are a waste in the CL. There are about 4 or 5 teams in the world that can win it. Bayern, Barca, Madrid, Juventus (PSG, and Atletico maybe?) So why don’t they just cut out all the rest and just have the top 4 teams?


#2315

But it wasn’t always those 5 clubs. Sometimes other clubs were up there. Sometimes a club has a great season and makes their mark before fucking off. Either is more than anything we ever did.

EDIT: Remember that Red Star Belgrade have more CLs than Arsenal


#2316

I’d be OK with that as pretty soon nobody would give a fuck.


#2317

Not enough of a money spinner without all of the top clubs.


#2318

We don’t even have to win it I just want us to COMPETE. We don’t even do that :disappointed:


#2319

im glad you said this. I started typing it out, but couldn’t get the right words out.


#2320

You should love the super cups tbh.


#2321

Super cups?


#2322

Yeah so the point is if you are an Arsenal fan you should always want to qualify because you don’t know what is going to happen. Usmanov takes over and loosens up the purse strings, we get a sporting director, we buy Greizmann, Isco, and Mahrez. But now we’ve got europa league football…


#2323

At least we topped our group unlike the last time United played CL football.


#2324

Dortmund and Atletico have made the final numerous times, and they dont have the spending power of those big clubs. We have no excuse really.


#2326

Dortmund is actually a Champions League winner


#2327

Community shield,
UEFA supercup,
DFL Supercup (germany)
Supercoppa Italiana
etc

All the same format. One game, one trophy, huge pre-requisites for entry, but still, once your in, its a cup final. No going out to a bunch of farmers in a group stage, bliss. :smile:


#2328

I didn’t say anything against them did I?

I always want to win the CS when we are in it!


#2329

Can’t disagree with the piss taking tweets, we have only made the last 4 twice for all our countless years in the competition.


#2330

So if Spurs play the Community Shield in August you’re going to say the same?


#2331

What have i said exactly?


#2332

huge pre-requisites for entry
cup final

Just seems weird saying they would be participating in a cup final as they wouldn’t even need to win anything to participate :grin:


#2333

ohhh. my bad. Well yeah because they still had to finish second, and have things fall into place for them, despite not winning anything.

If anything it’s even more special for them, to which i say fair play.

A friend of mine has bought a ticket for the CL final tomorrow evening, without realizing it’s the same day as his wedding day. If anyone wants, they can go instead of him, no charge. All they need to do is be present at 1 pm at the Wedding Reception Venue Center. The bride’s name is Jane.
