Hercule Poirot of the scouting world
- May 10, 2009
I don't remember anyone saying City were favorites (don't remember any PL club as favorites), it was all about Spanish clubs + Bayern. All PL clubs were seen as underachievers and general excuse was Spain, Germany have 10/10 teams, whereas PL has lot of 8/10 teams and lack 10/10 teams.They were as much favourites for the CL as they are now. That’s my point. It’s a lot of 4/1 and 7/2 before a ball is kicked. It’s neither here nor there between the top sides.
