The Champions League Thread


#4505

We haven’t won our group since 2012. Since 2010 we have come second to teams like Shaktar Donetsk, Schalke and Dortmund.
We have been knocked out by clubs like Monaco.
We once topped our group against Olympiacos, Standard and AZ (mindblowing I know).
We have always had fairly easy CL groups since the switch to the Emirates.

And by the same logic you are using it could be argued we wouldn’t have topped our group against Seville or wouldn’t have beaten Porto 0-5 at do Dragao.


#4506

I think we would have won that group, and beaten Porto.


#4507

Actually, we won our group last season and were drawn against Bayern


#4508

Yes, I forgot we were still in the Champions League two years ago :slight_smile:

@Jules both seem very unlikely to me based on our form this season.
Also if it were true I don’t see how it diminishes the fact Liverpool have done it as well. We had opportunities to do as well as they have under fairly similar circumstances but we didn’t. And also I am fairly certain they would have a better h2h record vs Bayern if they were in our shoes.


#4509

They only won their group by a single win :slight_smile:


#4510

What?


#4511

C’mon Juventus today! FFS!


#4512

They won by 3pts i.e a single win


#4513

That’s the silliest argument you could have come up with :slight_smile:


#4514

Not at all. All I’m arguing is they haven’t done as well as people are saying.


#4515

All people are really saying is they’ve done better than us. Which I agree, doesn’t, in itself, say much.


#4516

We are all Juve tonight.

C’mon you Bianconeri!! :black_circle::white_circle:


#4517

Well. Only one club topped their group by more than 3 points - Besiktas. I guess that makes them outstanding.

The group I mentioned earlier - vs Olympiacos, Standard and AZ - we won that by 3 pts.


#4518

Exactly, nothing special.


#4519

Well so Liverpool did achieve more than us with the same kind of draws we got in the end.


#4520

It’s not what they’ve done, but the inference that they’ve done it “so well”.

:joy::joy::joy::joy::joy::joy::joy::joy::joy::joy::joy::joy::joy::joy::joy:

I fucking hate the media and their Tottenham love in. How the fuck can they be one of Europe’s elite sides when they never fucking win anything!!!


#4522

Trashing your opponent 5-0 on their turf in the first leg of a knock out tie is doing it well imo


#4523

By being one of the best. If they can beat Juventus they probably aren’t too far off.


#4524

Hope Gigi doesn’t fuck it up like in the first leg.
