  1. Unlike the 7/9 also known as the Wendy’s of Europe. A small time club that had to fake it to make it with acquisitions that they couldn’t afford.

  2. RIght MG, imagine if we’re doing much better at CL, we’d be keeping that spot for the next decade. Thanks for pointing out how much potential is there 😉

  3. MG who do you root for? ACM is in the Champs Lge and in the final 16, and has the 2nd most CL Titles of all time, which not worthy Italian team do you root for?

  4. Teams have more interest in global brand now than they do in winning trophies.

    What a wretched sport it’s turning into.
