    No we wouldn't have. Rm may have been lucky and all this CL but they aren't shit enough in 2018 to blow up a 4-1 lead to roma. If we take out luck from the equation RM may have been eliminated by bayern but we still would been eliminated by roma and had we matched up RM then rm had better chances of eliminating us.

    There is no sad part about this. We would have accompolished jack shit in CL had we went past roma.
    RESULTS CAN BE MISLEADING. LOOK DEEPER

    Are we saying that playing top teams being conservative, parking the bus, relying on counters and direct plays such as crosses and headers has a much better chance than the kind of possession style play we had? There might be some truth to it, it kind of reminds of Luis Enrique and our treble in the 14/15 season when we played a lot of counters.

    I am still not sure. Perhaps Valverde is closer to doing that?
    Don't know whether you are sarcastic or not, but that's what I think. Defensive oriented teams usually do well in similar competitions. Examples are numerous. Greece Europe champion, Argentina WC final, Simeone, Mourinho, Chelsea etc. Can't forget Portugal.
    And it seems pretty logical to me, a draw is often like a win in the CL.

    It surely isn't the only way. This Real side is different. But they are multi-dimensional. We, we are neither.

    So, yes. I think it's harder to win the CL our way. But probably more enjoyable.

    When it comes to club football, Europe > the rest of the world. It is a fact. Yes I will tell that to the Corinthians, São Paulo and Internacional, the best club teams are in Europe. No problem with that statement whatsoever. Where else would they be? Brazil? If so, why did multiple Braazilian stars spend their peak years playing in Europe?

    Look, if you are content with us not winning the CL because somehow you believe it is not as important as the league, so be it. There are many of us who disagree.
    Rofl, i am content of us not winning CL as long as we win La Liga, it is definitely important cup, but realistically, you cannot be best club in the world if you are not even the best club in your country.

    WHat is so funny?

    OK, we know you don’t care about the CL as long as we win the league. Enough said, again there are many of us who see things differently.

    Who said anything about which club is the best club? I simply said the best clubs in the world are in Europe. How does what you said above repudiate this statement or claim of mine in any way?

    What was funny was the fact that you for some reason decided that I do not think CL is important trophy. That is false. I just do not expect to win trebles every season and winning 2 major trophies indeed is a successful season for me. If we would win CL and Copa, i would be just as content.
    Best clubs in the world are in Europe sure, but CL is not competition that decides the best club, unless there is a superleague of some kind, CL is just another competition with sometimes undeserving winners as are all cup tournaments. But win is a win sure.
