    Guardiola may only buy success but he does talk sense sometimes, ď"You can win the Champions League in seven games; the league is 10 months.

    "I'm sorry, it's much more important what these guys have done this season."

    Bang on with that.

    statistics can do anything Sterling is a good player in a very good team so chances aplenty.
    His finishing is poor but all strikers miss chances.
    Firmino missed a few yesterday but they both get there for them.
    My only concern about Sterling is in World Cup if he only gets one chance will he take it.

    But 20 goals canít be sniffed at.

    Just an aside the assault by Alonso on motd was poor and he should be in trouble for that.
    Just canít see what refs are or not seeing these days.

    Inside or outside the box he gave a pen so he MUST have seen it in the box for City.
    This shows that he guessed and he is not supposed to do that.

    Clear push in the back on Salaha nothing????

    For any team to win the European Cup, itís a massive achievement which shouldnít be dismissed In any way whatsoever.

    Also, itís a competition that canít be compared due to the quality of some of the lesser sides.

    I agree with you, and Pep 😁. League's are the true test, CL is a cup competition with the random elements that come with that.

    Of course it is massive but currently Real are 18 points behind Barcelona and Liverpool 17 behind City, City have a game in hand. Barcelona are clearly the best team in Spain, City in England but the CL will not reflect that this year.

    The likes of stoke,West Brom, Southampton, Swansea, Huddersfield, Palace, Everton etc are hardly a true test of football to City.

    Best teams donít always win everything, it doesnít mean that whoever wins the European cup has had it easy.

    Take a look at Real for instance. Theyíve played spurs, Dortmund, Nicosia,PSG,Juve and if they go onto win it theyíll have beaten Bayern and Liverpool or Roma. Potentially played 6 of 7 top sides who would challenge them for the league year on year.

    Testing yourself against those teams is much better than playing stoke West Brom etc etc

    I agree it should be Champions only!
    Then have the Europa for the next two or three.
    Thats it you should not get into Europe for coming sixth or seventh, itís all about TV and Money.

    It wouldnt work. The europa would be full of better quality sides.

    Would Bt pay nearly a billion quid to Show Bate Borisov V Maccabi Tel Aviv in the 1/4 finals?

    The current set up is the closet thing we'll get to a european super league imo.
