    Liverpool haven’t been champions for 30 years lol.
    28 actually. But we do have a proven european pedigree over that time, unlike some who have just made the numbers up year on year.

    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.
    Why is it called the Champions League then .
    That should be against the trade description act as they can’t all be champions.

    If they want a European super league just call it that!

    its just about tv and money

    Did you have the same problems when Arsenal were getting in with 4th place each time?

    They must be a test for the others though as otherwise there would not be such a gap. City have disposed those teams that often cause the banana skins.

    Bang on with that.
    If its easier, why hasnt Arsene's league winners gone onto win it then?

    A lot less random now due to group stages, seedings, big squads etc.

    Because in a cup game anything can happen.

    Well you’ve proved over the most recent years that’s all you are, a domestic cup team at best where anything can happen.

    Good goal by Ritchie 😜😂

    100 % Correct.

    And as the club record holder of FA cup wins Arsene, as well as Arsenal (they are different entities BTW), does it not show a litany of failure that for such a storied cup team, that this is where you lie in the history of British teams league table of winners:-
    Liverpool 11 1973, 1976, 1977 (2), 1978, 1981, 1984, 2001 (2), 2005 (2)
    Manchester United 6 1968, 1991 (2), 1999, 2008, 2017
    Chelsea 5 1971, 1998 (2), 2012, 2013
    Tottenham Hotspur 3 1963, 1972, 1984
    Nottingham Forest 3 1979 (2), 1980
    Aston Villa 3 1982 (2), 2001
    West Ham United 2 1965, 1999
    Arsenal 2 1970, 1994
    Leeds United 2 1968, 1971
    Newcastle United 2 1969, 2006
    Some do include super cup, inter-toto which I wouldnt count, but still?
