The exact same no. Do they have any valid excuse to drop from the best team in Europe status to not even a top 20 team in Europe? No. Truth is they were never that good and simply got lucky a couple matches last year.

As evidenced by their domestic performance that season and their performance right now.

No, they got hot and played well in a couple of matches. The tournament situation is designed to favor the hot team. It's the reason it's set up like that. To act like Chelsea was the only time the favorite did not win is ridiculous. To act like this it the only time a tournament situation came out like that is ridiculous.

A team overachieving shows a lot about their character. Why play any games? Why not declare the winner prior to any games being played?

I'm not excited. I like to see teams at full strength. Just funny that he comes into a meaningless game to stat pad and then gets struck by karma.

A lot of people last year acted as if Chelsea winning last season wasn't a matter of a team being extraordinarily lucky and playing well beyond their capabilities.

In fact what happened was a classic case of "every dog has it's day" . What you are saying doesn't go against what I'm saying, nowhere do I say the best team wins every time. A lot of Chelsea fans acted as if their win was evidence of their greatness, not me.

So you are saying something equally stupid to fight this? Chelsea was not the greatest team of all time. And by "some people" you mean Nick Young. That's like me saying Barca sucks because some particular idiots don't think they have any flaws.

Chelsea played way over their head, using great tactics, and knocked off a few teams better than them with timely goals, and great defense. That's a fantastic story. Them losing doesn't change that. ANd people who don't understand that, i don't get why you watch sports because basically what you are saying is the best team put together going in winning makes sense, and everything else is lucky.
