Mourinho vs Real would be very interesting.

Chelsea cant play as defensively vs real tho if they make it thorugh.
Real can score in so many different ways

^ That's exactly why I don't want chelsea in the final, they play the most boring style of football known to man.

Btw Karma, what do you think about Liverpool? Still think they'll take the title?

You can call it boring... I call it tactically sound. Mou is a tactical genius... you can whine and moan all you want :lol: but the guy just knows how to win games, especially Cups.

Based on Real's form, I don't think anyone will beat them, but I bet The Special One would give it a good go.

He can win games sure, but tactical genius? The guy parks the bus and counter attacks.. I fail to see anything revolutionary in that. That's why he sucked with Real because they refused to play like that and that's the only style of football he knows. He got lucky against Liverpool because they literally gifted him both goals.. they had two other shots all game, it would've been a 0-0 snooze fest if it wasn't for Gerrards slip.

Special 1 TV however is comedic gold, love every episode, thanks for the nostaligia Piotrek

LOL it's certainly more diverse than just "parking the bus"

his record in big games speaks for itself.

As for the nostalgia, my pleasure :lol: such a funny bit eh? haha

i like Mourinho a lot. This Chelsea team didnt have the players. im surprised they got this far and have as many points in the epl as they do with their current squad.

And Pieczyk do I think Liverpool can still win. Yes because Man City will draw vs everton this weekend

To jest dopiero początek inwazji słowiańskiej husarii.Zobaczycie że już za parę lat zachodnia zgnilizna będzie drżeć na sam widok tych dzielnych i wspaniałych mężów ze słowiańskiego ludu.

Każdy Polak z krwi i kości winien się cieszyc z sukcesów naszych braci słowian z Bułgari,jak również z Białorusi,Słoweni.

Brawo Ludogorets, BATE, i Maribor.

It's saying that Champions league should only be reserved for the rich, super clubs.

The fact that Ludogorets is worth 35mil and Legia is only worth 20 is the most depressing stat on that list

We only have 1 owner (Legia) who cares about PL soccer who wants to qualify to CL. Everyone else just wants to stay alive in EK and not get relegated. No ambition.

The problem with CL is that the teams that dont win the league still get a group stage spot. Its bullshit. Thats what I mean by its broken.

Does anyone actually disagree that the later rounds of the CL should be reserved for the best teams on the pitch? The best teams are typically the wealthiest, yes.

If something needs to be done it is to adjust how teams qualify to the group stages. I think champions from the medium-good coefficient countries (Poland, Switzerland, Romanians, Austrians, Czechs etc.) should be given automatic group stage spots while the non-champions from the higher coefficient countries (Top 8) should fight a more challenging playoff series.

Also, maintain the champions route for the lower-good coefficient countries (Slovenia, Slovakia, Scotland) presumably without automatic group stage spot and separate them from the non-champions qualification.

Thats how it should be like the top 15-20 ranked leagues get automatic CL spots.

More international flair and unpredictable like it used to be. Can you imagine how many clubs would want to win the league even more because of automatic CL spot instead of just trying to stay afloat..

I want the best teams playing. Champions league has early rounds have sucked last couple years cuz we have to watch apoel playing olympiacos... Look at how many un-appealing group stage match ups there were last year and then again this year.

yea lets not kid ourselves only reason we have those classified "best" teams playing is because they were given automatic qualification every year regardless if they won the league or not. Easy money for them and they got to grow and invest more. The rest of Europe got screwed and here we are today..guys like you complaining about certain match-ups..and I am complaining about the same old teams over and over...like i said its broken. Fair competition my ass
