  1. Considering that 4-5 “super clubs” are in the 1/4 and 1/2 final stages of the CL every year, the EL is a breath of fresh air.

    I love watching Barcelona like the next guy, and the MSN are out of this world, but every year, it’s the same old Barca, Real, Bayern combo fighting for the CL trophy. Heck, Juventus being the “upset” finalist last season says a lot about what the CL has become…even PSG and Man City cannot compete with the Big 3 of Europe…
