    Great achievement by Liverpool no doubt about it they have an amazing record in all competitions but were the only English club to achieve the real treble and we almost had a semi treble last season.

    wow didnt really think people would take that seriously... but in that case i stick to my words
    "I pass and I move, I help you, I look for you, I stop, I raise my head, I look and, above all, I open up the pitch...The one who has the ball, is the master of the game...That's the school of Joan Vilà, of Albert Benaiges, of Johan Cruijff, of Pep Guardiola" - Xavi Hernandez

    !!Visca Barça!! !!Visca Catalunya!!

    Trophies IMO.

    Because you look at Atletico Madrid, They have huge players, Simao, Forlan, Aguero, Maxi, but they aren't considered that good, because of lack of trophies

    Yet in Spain they're still considered a big club because they have a massive fan base and they're the capital's second club.

    For me you find out when you are a big club in the bad times, not the good. When you don't play in the Champions League but you are still talked about in it. When you get beat, and many laugh. And of course the test of any big club = when more people in this world hate you than love you. Indifference is the worst thing that can be thought of your club by all other football fans.

    that's actually very true.

    when a lack of success is met with a surprise. when people still talk about you if you're not winning.

    I think Sunderland are a big club, with the potential to get even bigger.

    6 League titles, huge fanbase, great facilities, decent team and lots of moolah.

    A club is big when they have a lot of fans in Japan and the United States.
