  • In my personal opinion, the strength of the Uefa Champions League is fuelled by the advantage of big European clubs pioneering in buying all the best players from all over the world, which has built up into a history of such clubs making their marks early as powerhouses of world club football, and subsequently cementing their lure as the teams every player would love to see themselves playing for
  • This is exactly the reason why I think there is no better club competition than the Uefa Champions League as the very best of the best players usually feature here
  • While I have witnessed one or two dull affairs, they are few and far between and funny enough, the games that I would naturally expect to be boring, are those where both teams involved have already qualified for the knock-out stages and the managers are simply giving their players a run
  • What I like most about the Champions League though, is the fact that there are always shock results and surprise packages each season and while Barcelona are clearly the team to beat of late, their losing to Inter Milan last season made for a good twist, ensuring my interest spans beyond the mere fact that some quality football is on show
  • It is interesting however to note that the likes of France and Portugal are always there or there about, but only really make some serious waves every now and then, with the 2005 final taken by FC Porto of Portugal, beating Monaco of France

      In my personal opinion, the strength of the Uefa Champions League is fuelled by the advantage of big European clubs pioneering in buying all the best players from all over the world, which has built up into a history of such clubs making their marks early as powerhouses of world club football, and subsequently cementing their lure as the teams every player would love to see themselves playing for.

      This is exactly the reason why I think there is no better club competition than the Uefa Champions League as the very best of the best players usually feature here. While I have witnessed one or two dull affairs, they are few and far between and funny enough, the games that I would naturally


      expect to be boring, are those where both teams involved have already qualified for the knock-out stages and the managers are simply giving their players a run. When the players are relaxed they have much more freedom to express their natural talent and technical ability as I witnessed in the recent final group game between Manchester United and Valencia.

      What I like most about the Champions League though, is the fact that there are always shock results and surprise packages each season and while Barcelona are clearly the team to beat of late, their losing to Inter Milan last season made for a good twist, ensuring my interest spans beyond the mere fact that some quality football is on show.

      Over the few years ...


      • that I have been an avid viewer of the Uefa Champions League, I have witnessed a power shift on many occasions, in terms of regional league strength, with Italy and Spain dominating in the beginning, then England coming in and staking their claim and then Spain and Italy coming to the fore again. It is interesting however to note that the likes of France and Portugal are always there or there about, but only really make some serious waves every now and then, with the 2005 final taken by FC Porto of Portugal, beating Monaco of France.

        Even though the original powerhouses of European club football have somewhat fizzled out over the recent years (Real Madrid and AC Milan), the fixture between AC

        Milan and Real Madrid still dishes up the most mouth-watering prospect for me, although there are better matches like Barcelona versus Arsenal. The fact that two genuine heavy weights are coming up against each other, given the fact that they have won the title sixteen times between them, makes things go deeper than what I just see on the football pitch. Seeing players like Ronaldinho and Inzaghi still offering something to the beautiful game attests to the mettle of these powerhouses of European football.

        For as long as all the best players in the world flock to the European leagues, I will always see the Uefa Champions League as the best spectacle of football, only over shadowed by the quadrennial FIFA World Cup.
