What are you judging this on? I don't see why anyone would think this. People get too excited by new/reappearing teams too much. Same shit with Dortmund last year. Everyone said they were going to tear it up. Bottom of the group.

Yeah, that's a ridiculous statement, particularly as they are a lower seed.

City can win it all. They're more than capable with that squad, especially if Tevez is on board.

To be fair Dortmund struggled generally at the start of last season, the loss of Sahin really had them in a state of transition. When they finally got it sorted they just went on a crazy run. Next season they should be okay with Gotze back in fitness and Reus joining, they shouldn't miss GOAT Shinji too much.

I don't there should be too much change at Juve.

I do accept that and agree to an extent, but I also think they were very naive there too. The same with City. City are far better than Napoli. But they just got caught out.

Juventus do have older heads, so that shouldn't be a problem. But they've been away from the Champions League for a while now and I don't think their squad is deep when it comes to quality (maybe a bit hypocritical, because the Chelsea one wasn't last season either).

We'll see anyway. But I don't understand how Juventus are favourites over Man City at this point. I want to know the logic behind that.

Re: 2012-13 English Premier League Thread

Tasty looking first and last games. Don't like the derbys being so close together but I'll take a home mauling of the rags as a 4 day late birthday present. Still can't get over the last day of the season. Every football fan deserves to feel what we felt when Agueros shot hit the back of the net. To go from such a low to such a high in 3 minutes. Unbelievable. Scenes of euphoria at Eastlands. Will never be matched I dont think. Roll on 2012-2013. MCFC OK.

I'm judging this based on Juventus' tradition and experience in the CL not to mention they have a great team. I can actually see Juventus making the semi finals next year.

Meanwhile Manchester City may have a great squad but they don't have the experience necessary to advance to the later stages of the competition. This was showcased this year when we embarassed them at the Allianz, they lost to Napoli and if it wasn't for us having no interest in the last match they'd have 7 points overall instead of 10.

City will at least get to the last 4 of the CL.

United/City in the CL final would be insane.

Some good news CAPTAIN RAFA has signed a 4 year contract

Quote:
Rafael pens new deal

Rafael has signed a new four-year deal which will see the Brazilian full-back stay at Old Trafford until the end of the 2015/16 season.

Rafael, 21, arrived at Old Trafford in the summer of 2008 and his performances for the first team have seen him called into the full Brazil squad.

Sir Alex Ferguson is delighted to have secured Rafael's services for a further four years and told ManUtd.com: “Rafael is one of the club’s brightest young prospects; he has no fear of playing and has great belief in himself.

"The boy has developed immensely since joining United, his energy and enthusiasm are a joy to watch. Rafael has all the attributes to become one of the best full-backs in the world and I am delighted he has signed a new contract.”

The man himself is just as pleased: “I am so happy to sign a new contract," Rafael told us. "I love playing for Manchester United, there is a great team spirit here and a real desire to win.

"My time here has been unbelievable; winning two league titles, a league cup and a Club World Cup has made me hungry for more trophies. I would like to thank Sir Alex for his belief in me and I would also like to thank the fans for their support.”
