you are such a cocky fake fan, can't wait to see Ramires assassinate you again this year, and watching you jump off the barca bandwagon.

As for the winner, Barca and Real are still the favourites, with both Manchesters after them. Bayern and Chelsea have an outside chance.

And Chelsea doesnt really look terrific. Their defense is shaky. They have holes in the middle after getting rid of Essien and Meireles. And lol no Romeu is far from a regular starter. And they should not get rid of Torres, since he will be cheap now ( they got him for shitload of money so it wont make sense ), so they should give him a full season as a starter before they do something about his future.

BTW, since you are such a spelling checker, you should be able to read and write correctly my username. Well done, dumbass.



Spelling your name is less important than spelling Ramires.




Yes, losing Essien will really be a problem for Chelsea. How many games did he play last year? How about the previous 4 seasons, combined? I see. Maybe losing a redundant Miereles will be their undoing.



Romeu isn't a regular starter? That's kind of point in saying he deserves a runout. Well done.


Chelsea has a great makeup of CB's. They don't have many holes. Oscar hasn't even gotten a runout, Mata looks exhausted, Marin has yet to play. And no, they shouldn't wait on Torres, as their goal is to win and he sucks.



Lastly, Barcelona...it had genuinely run dry with Rijkaard. And, more important is that Guardiola turned out to be Guardiola. By my reasoning, Tito has to turn out the way Pep turned out. And Pep didn't just turn out that way because of the team he had, but because he's a terrific manager.

Essien had a injury and missed a lot of times, and they didnt really play him much after he recovered. He is obviously not the same player from 3-4 years ago but he is still very good and could have been a good backup for mikel. Now if he gets injured who will replace him? Romeu? Good luck with that... and who is the backup for lampard now? chelsea basically bought 10 wingers and attacking mids but forgot to upgrade their central and def. midfield
And i guess u didnt get what i meant with 'isnt a regular starter', so here i will explain it to u better - Romeu isnt, cant, shouldnt, couldnt be a regular starter for a team that wants to win big trophies. Comprende?

yeah chelsea has 3 good CBs but none of them are in good form, are they?

and what do you think they should do with torres? the season already started? they should just leave him play for the reserves chelsea b team huh? who will be the striker then? sturridge? moses? better hope jesus helps u with this one

We cant really tell if Pep is really a terrific manager until he proves that with other team. And Tito is not just some random guy, he was the assistant coach and knows his shit.

There is no good reason Bayern should be considered to have an "outside chance" behind Real Madrid, Manchester United, Manchester City, or even Barcelona.

Not sure if trolling.

IMO Tier 1 is Barcelona and Bayern.

based on current form, probably... but a lot of things can change till the knockout stage... i think bayern play way too offensive football which can be dangerous against big teams... yeah so far they have been playing great... but against weak opponents... your two CBs are badstuber and dante... i would be worried about that one

Badstuber is good and only getting more experienced. He's also great at distributing from the back. I don't know who you have been watching. Dante was rated 2nd best defender in the Bundesliga behind Hummels.



Okay. But let's just assume I concede that point.

Bayern's midfield shits all over Chelsea's, and United's midfield and we all saw what a midfield even without Schweinsteiger in one game and with an injured Schweinsteiger in the other did to Real's midfield. And it only got stronger.

You also forget that Bayern is a pretty young team in a lot of positions. Younger than Man City I think who you give the "more experience" bonus.

"outside chance" is big reach

bayern beat madrid last year and almost won the trophy, and they gotten a lot better since last year
why should the two manchesters who didn't even get out of the group stage last year have a better chance at winning than them
damn you are stupid

badstuber is always shaky when i watch him, he could do a costly mistake any minute..i wouldnt trust him in big games... and i didnt know that about dante... didnt really notice him last years in the few gladbah games i watched... he has been good so far this season, but yeah like i said weak opponents who dont posses much of a treat

and bayern midfield is strong no doubt, top 3 in the world alongside barca and city... but lets not forget that they are the most injury prone of the favourites and they have some prima donnas who can fight for a free kick anyday

so yeah its way to early to talk about the CL finalists who will need to face Barca.
