The two best squads in Europe are in the final
Out of CL at the earliest stage. I wouldn't be boasting.And are improving with still a relatively low squad age.
Just wanted to throw this out with all the gnawing and gnashing with a City-Chelsea CL final.
We are 5th in the euroclubindex.
We are 5th in 538's rankings.
We need to realize the PL is a tough league and is very strong right now. City are 1st on every ranking, and Chelsea and Liverpool are also both in the top 7 (Chelsea 4th on 538 and Liverpool 6th). Both European finals were all-England affairs in 2019 and likely will again be in 2021 if Arsenal beat Villarreal.
Ole has done a fantastic job, as have the players and we are trending in the right direction. We also played well in the CL, bar couple of halves that we played with low concentration (first half at Istanbul and Leipzig).
What if Chelsea is without Kante, Silva, Havert etc. ? It could work both way and it's not even the point here.As i said: it's a cup. What matters is how good you are the week you play, not in general
Yeah but Madrid have pedigree to make big claims. If they hadn't made it that year we knew they won it the years before.I agree. Fine margins and all that. Qualify from the group stage and you might find yourself all the way through to the CL final.
Didn't Real qualify in matchday 6 in 2017/18? They then went on to win it.
My point is wondering how far United could have gone, based on Chelsea and City being in the final, is meaninglessWhat if Chelsea is without Kante, Silva, Havert etc. ? It could work both way and it's not even the point here.
Your logic about luck sounds quite right at first sight. But it's like saying the only difference between your worth and Elon Musk's worth is just money. You forgot the amount. The amount of luck it'd take for Porto to reach the CL final would definitely be higher than Chelsea's. Why? Because Chelsea is stronger than Porto. But is Chelsea stronger than United?
Every teams have a chance to reach a CL final once they participate in the CL. But saying every teams has the same chance is simply not true.
Caftards can’t separate emotion and facts.Exactly. There aren't 6 teams better than us. People disagreeing with us being top 7 at least are deluded.
