watching mancity - real made me realize we could have won the whole thing pretty easily.

Atletico will win the cl 100%
+5
100% ?
if there is one team know how to win the CL its Real Madrid.. its in their DNA.. ugly or pretty the get results .. and when they are in the final .. they know how to win it
in fact out of 13 finals .. they have won 10 of them...
impressive
DNA lol, they won 5 of them like 100 years ago when 4-5 teams were participating
+3
^ 100 years ago! Haha

32 years between 6th and 1st UCL. 12 years between 9th and 10th. I think atletico will not make the mistake they made last time. Desire to win trumps raw talent at times.
+4
they had roma(bad), wolfsburg(who are doing terrible ) and mancity(who are s**t)

I will bet a good amount of money on Atletico to win.
+3
all Im saying is to count out Real madrid and give atletico 100% chance of winning is irrational.
+3
Roma are a solid team. Second best in Italy after Juve. Don't know why people insist on labeling them as a s**t team

Anywho, I like our chances. Zizou will work his magic once again
Oh yeah,those 5 wins a 100 years ago were a joke. Hell,during those years only small teams played in the CL,some of them:

Barcelona
Milan
Manchester United
Ajax
Sevilla
Atletico Madrid
Dortmund
Juventus
Schalke

Strange,where is Bayern? Oh, they didn't qualify for the Cl until 1969,because that's the first time in almost 40 years you won the Bundesliga lol

So please,don't belittle Madrid success in those years,it was a different time and this Madrid team dominated it. Champions league was always the strongest competition possible,and back then,besides the clubs that I mention who are still big,there were some other forces like Frankfurt,Partizan,Crvena Zvezda,Rangers,Reims etc. Show some respect.

"Strange,where is Bayern? Oh, they didn't qualify for the Cl until 1969,because that's the first time in almost 40 years you won the Bundesliga lol!"

I didn't expect someone to counter my joke seriously, but since you did I guess I have to talk about history. I dont know if you knew, but I think you just forgot the most historical period of all time, the World War 2 lol.
At that time the president of Bayern was jewish, and because of that the nazis basically dismantled Bayern, and it took long before Bayern could recover and have good enough squad to join Bundesliga.

The whole Europe was recovering from the war when Real were having their "golden age" most of the generation that could've played football at that time were either killed or injured during the war or didn't care at all about football as we do today.

And let us not forget this.

Ola! :)

I just wanna drop in to make it clear that since 1998 (thats pretty recent for those who don't know :D ) we've won the most amount of CL titles together with Barcelona (4)... And now have the chance to make that 5 titles in 18 years. and we went trough 6 straight years of last 16 eliminations and 12 years of BS.

Adios! ;)
+1
pretty damn sure utd were not playing in the first 5 CL season.

edit. we were not in the first one

we played the second one

the munic air disaster happened in the season of the third one

token invite to the fourth one, but of course the crash left our first team devestated

and we were not in the fifth one.

so really we participated in just the one at full strength. we actually beat a side 12-0 on aggregate, with 10 coming in one game at our home ground. but i didnt know we were in any of them. interesting.

SF

You can see all the results for every season on UEFA's site,it actually pretty interesting :)

Bavaria

So our rise started around 11 years after the war,so hardly right after it. And football was strong back then,but the strongest forces were divided a lot differently than now. Real,Barca,Milan,Manchester United and some others have been huge then and remained huge till today. While there were some teams that were the equivalent of today's giants that today don't exist or are reduced to national level( Partizan,Frankfurt,Zvezda etc).

Di Stefano,Puskas,Gento...that's was Madrid front 3, leader of the most successful generation in football ever. They did something amazing for that time and they deserve respect for it. That's why seeing all those posts how the first 5 titles mean nothing made me jump out of my skin.

We tangoed with Atleti a lot more than you guys,so we know what to expect in the finale. As I recall some of you wrote us off two years ago in the semis too.
+2
I thought real Madrid ninjas are obsessive only wit us,this thread proves me wrong,lol
Ok Pejvl I can respect that
+3
Okay we all have different opinions here
but everyone can agree that ManCity is s**t :)

^ ill drink to that

What do you make of this Pjanic rumour? Think we need him?
How are Aguero and KDB expected to live with the non-existent service from the midfield??? NO creative midfield play; for crying out load the attack couldn't link up with the midfield and Pellegrini did nothing to adjust.

City thought Real would mindlessly pour players forward as do Bayern and Psg but that didn't materialize and couldn't on there on find a way to effectively attack madrid.

This was a terrible semi final with all due respect. Not a slight to madrid as you can only beat the team in front of you but city is just nowhere as good as the media make them look. The fact that they look good in the epl doesn't tell a good tale about the league period.
+1
It was already obvious that Real would make it to final when they drew City, I am not surprised at this result
+3
A lot of fans here were scared to face Real when I said I would prefer to draw them, Real hasn't showed anything special this season and had Bayern met them we would be in final. But we will never know
+1
Lol yaya toure was a total liability.
He's got way too arrogant, jogging around the pitch like he doesn't even give a s**t about putting in some work
again.. this team beat you guys in munich.. can people stop generalizing a team based one a couple s**t performances. they just didnt play well, thats why they are struggling for fourth in the EPL, they are super inconsistent and without kompany or kdb or aguero in form they can be quite diabolical.
It's funny how people say Pep chose the easier challenges as supposed to going to some mid table team, you know all that load of bull, but seeing city today tells me he has his work cut out.

Lmao if city is supposed to be an easy challenge then wow!! A team like city is so much better than parking the bus, a tactic they haven't totally mastered by the way. Wonder how they made it to the semi really...

The positional pay, pressing, passing was not top level at all. The result does hide city's terrible game play.
+2
I support Guardiola but City IS an easy challenge because $$$$. Wait till the summer ends and then judge if Guardiola has his work cut out.
Funny because Pellegrini had the money too but see what happens when you spend a whole lot of money without a quality coach??? IF city improves then it would be due to Pep doing the right things not city.
+3
They don't seem to know how to press the ball, triangular passes and link up plays from midfield to attack. Pep has his work cut out.
+1
Like I said, I think Guardiola is a great coach, so please don't talk as if I'm saying he isn't. He is also a great fit for City because, as you said, they need a quality coach to make their money count.

But this doesn't mean that it's a hard challenge for Guardiola. A hard challenge would be if he went to Liverpool or Arsenal or some other team that could not or would not purchase world class stars.

Finally, your last post about City's apparent tactical cluelessness is very misguided. They are not a great side but they were not playing their usual style today. They are also not in good form. But man-for-man they are ideally suited to Pep's style of play, because they have so many technical, tactically astute players.
Money isn't everything tanmay,in that case,real Madrid would have won every single liga they played all these years.city needs major overhaul due to average players and aging players.and your perception of Liverpool and arsenal don't have money to spend on required players is just wrong,they too have enough money to spend it .
+3
Therein lies to challenge as you can assemble an expensive team but without a good coach nothing happens. Because of the fact city got money to spend doesn't mean a single thing without a good coach.

Let me repeat myself again. An expensive team was assembled for pelle and except for the league title , he has done nothing in europe. Not even the fact that he hasn't won the trophy but city's play isn't top level. The fact Pep could come in and change the team play regardless of the money speaks to the quality of the coach. And that is a challenge. For your info liverpool under Rodgers spent a great deal of money.... spent it on some unsuitable players maybe but that shows money isn't the end all.
Man you guys. Let me spell out my point of view to you in three yes/no questions.

Is guardiola top class, one of the very best? Yes.

Is it possible he'll do things at city that no other manager could? Yes!

Is City a challenging club for Pep? No! Because there are not many clubs in the world where the conditions to succeed for Pep are better. Outside Madrid, Bayern, Barca every other club is arguable.
But what is being 'successful', Tanmay? He was expected to win the friggin' CL at least once for Bayern and it was a bare minimum he won the Bundesliga every single year. And now that he won 5 trophies with Bayern in 3 seasons, many people consider him to have not succeeded because he didn't win several more, mainly the hardest one to win of them all: the Champions League.

So the 'challenge' at Bayern was immense: it was winning basically a treble at least once in 3 years and a double every year.

The challenge at City won't be much less: he'll be given plenty of dough to bake with, but he'll be expected to make them the best team in England year after year.

Now consider an alternative destination like Arsenal. If he'll just make top 3 in his first season and reach the quarter finals of the CL, people will say he's done an amazing job and proved his doubters wrong. Any better than that and he's the demi-God he was at Barça again. IMHO that's less of a 'challenge' than winning the CL with Bayern even once in 3 years, despite them perhaps having the highest quality of players on the planet.

I honestly think that making an already fantastic team slightly better and consistently dominant in their own league the way he did is just as amazing as doing what, for example Poch did with Spurs.

Improving near perfection is damned difficult, winning the CL depends a lot on luck.
+1
Let's put away the talk about money. Every club is spending money these days including arsenal. Pep has a reputation and even at barca he spent a lot of money. Except for Leicester which is an anomaly, you need money to succeed in football today. City is no more rich than united. In fact ffp rules make it much more difficult for city to spend than clubs like madrid and united.

City are s**t. Pep has to basically teach them football all over again. At bayern he had a good structure. Bayern has always had possession while playing and good defense is in the German dna. City on the other hand is an unstructured mess.

In England what they call defense is a joke. Barely any teams press and apart from mourinho teams (or pulis and koeman) most teams have rubbish defense. That's why Spanish players find it easier in England. All you have to do is avoid the charging defender.

Pep has been hired to work on city's academy as well. City's owners want to replicate la masia in Manchester. That's going to be pep's biggest challenge. They're going to want him to not just build the academy system but also help form links with talent scouts in Spain. If money made things easy then united would have no problem maintaining their position in England after saf left.
+1
@J good point that success is relative. But to play the devil's advocate, while City = champions or Bayern=CL is, I agree, harder than Arsenal=3rd, what would be truly difficult is Liverpool=champions or Atletico=champions. I think that Pep should give more audacious challenges a try at least once in his career. Without it he would be considered an incredible manager, but Mourinho (Porto, Inter) among others would rank ahead of him in terms of versatility.
manager of pep's calibre is expected to win arsenal epl title and take them to quater final of ucl a year after

with city his main job would be to win them ucl trophy.

its as simple as that.
Man watching city and facepalming myself, thinking about what would be the status quo had we drawn them instead of Atletico in the semis.

With a performance like yesterday's in a final we would have beaten any team in Europe

Real had to play Europa League to make it to CL final

+2
Yeah looking back at it, the first half was a masterpiece tactically and we put in a magnificent effort.
A pity that we couldn't turn our supremacy into goals :( that Müller penalty is still haunting me.
If you reflect on Pep's career Id list that performance next to that one at the etihad in 2014(?!) or the cup final in 2014
+1
Damn english media and most EPL fans talking s**t about Pep. Some of them are calling him a 'fraud'...

I already feel sorry for him since he is going hear s**t from people in England on daily basis.

Pep is a great coach. Enough said.
+7
True bro. Pep really left it all on the field, the players all did too. Fraud foh with that rubbish!The man has made his mistakes and may have been too attack minded even when being cautious might have paid more but he bring a different perspective no one else brings.

His legacy at barca is ultimately what defines him and that's a burden in more ways than one. The english can only dream of having a coach like him...Here is a question too, ever heard of an english coach winning the CL?

But yet they are quick to judge others. I wish Pep all the best with man city.
+3
I don't get how anyone can blame Pep for that game or even the f*****g players. Bayern like you said, literally put everything out there. Some of the best football I have seen.

For me, the quality of Bayern was even higher than the Juve game. The last time I enjoyed a match this much was the 4-0 we gave Madrid. I'm happy Atletico went through cause I was rooting for a Spanish team but for me, you guys deserved to be in the final.
Tough to see you lose on away goals nonsense. Never liked that rule.
Few years back we felt the same when bayern progressed through even when we beat them 3-1.
Correction 3-2. Talking about the match Robben scored a classic?....
+2
that espn show about is pep a failure. Damn he went savage mode.
was an entertaining game to watch. We lost focus for one second and boom they scored. This game was not peps fault at all we were attacking hard and i loved it. We just lost focus and they clutched it. Anyway next year people!
