    Bayern would still be clear favourites. Not sure how the posting of their big squad proves anything. Bayern have a better first choice XI for me, and their current team will go down as one of the best in the last 50 years. This Real team won't. They look more like a collection of individuals.
    I think you're absolutely deluded if you think Bayern are clearly better than Barca or Madrid. At the bottom of my post, I've attached a poll on who people thought would win the CL, this was just before the Bayern hype bandwagon kicked in (that you seem to be on). Now, that doesn't represent Bayern as 'clear' favourites. The introduction of Thiago/Gotze isn't going to significantly improve them this year, in the same way Illaramendi and Isco wont significantly improve Real this year. Gotze/Thiago/Illaramendi/Isco are players for the future. Fair play, Bayern were the best performing team last year, but it doesn't mean they're clear favourites this year. I think Madrid are actually the favourites (notice, I am not saying clear). It was just over a year ago when Bayern edged Madrid in the CL Semi's in a penalty shoot out.

    Bayern are easily favourites. Barca probably second Madrid third. Bayern have the best team not to mention added even more depth.

    Madrid until they actually make the final can't be put ahead of Bayern.

    Did you not notice Bayern 7-0ing Barca this season?

    Also if you think those players you've listed, excluding Illara as I haven't seen him enough, are for the future, then clearly you haven't seen them play. They'd walk into every Premiership XI.

    If Madrid are favourites with the bookies then there's probably value in the Bayern Munich bet so I'd back those.

    Not sure how a team who hasn't reached a final in over 10 years can be favourites ahead of a team who have reached 3 finals in 4 years, are the current holders and probably have the best squad on paper but there you go.

    Just saw your Skybet link, Bayern are the favourites. :rolleyes:

    I said Bayern were the best performing team last season. Barcelona beat Madrid 5-0 in a game. The next season, Madrid won the league.

    Oh my days, you're also not reading.

    Bayern are equal favourites; along with Barcelona. This is according to Skybet. I was arguing that Bayern aren't clear favourites.

    I'm just going to write the odds out, because I'm wondering as to whether any of you people actually read.

    Bayern 4/1
    Barcelona 4/1
    Real Madrid 5.5/1

    Now explain to me how that suggests Bayern are clear favourites.

    I didn't read the earlier posts, but it depends how many people bet on the market as well. Loads of people will be backing Barça, England are always top 3 or 4 with English bookies to win a World Cup for example but that's not an accurate reflection of their chances. Bookies have to shorten the odds so they can guarantee profits.

    Bayern are, in my opinion, the clear favourites.

    If Madrid sign Zlatan then they have to be favourites for the CL next season.

    The bookies are hardly going to offer huge odds on those clubs. Bayern could have a bad game and go out. Then they've got everyone that took a punt on Barca to win at 8/1 or whatever. It's a business designed to make money, not to measure the distances between teams. For example, Arsenal have lower odds than BVB; in what world does that make sense? In fact, BVB are the worst in that list for some reason, yet they're better than most of those teams. That makes no sense at all.

    Have you read all of my posts?

    I initially said Madrid are the favourites. This was my opinion, but my own link showed Madrid aren't the favourites.

    My argument was that Bayern aren't clear favourites as someone suggested they were. The link also showed that Bayern aren't clear favourites.

    All of you pressing green on other posts, and red on mine deep down know that Bayern aren't clear favourites. Some of you may think Bayern are favourites, but not clear.

    PS: I would apologise for all the use of bold and underlining, but most of you can't seem to comprehend that I'm arguing that Bayern aren't clear favourites.

    I think it has got to a point where some of you are just trying to keep your pride, but whatever.

    I thought Ancelotti cannot buy any of PSG's players as part of the deal for him to manage Real.
    I didn't know about that, I'd just heard rumours of Zlatan's move. Its supposedly a gentleman's agreement, although considering the manager is rarely in charge of player transfer at Madrid I'm not sure what different it would make. I'm guessing the talk of Zlatan's move would be PSG trying to shift him off the wage bill now Cavani has arrived, if they wanted him to move then I'm guessing it would be all fine. He's apparently been left out of their pre season too, for rest :rolleyes:. There is talk of Verratti wanting to leave too, although he's realistically not going anywhere.

    I find it hard to not see bayern as big favourites after there demolition of barca last year..

    not to mention R.Madrid just looked really suspect all the way through the last campaign.. they struggled against united.. lost one leg to galatasary, then were taken apart by dortmund, both in the group and knockout stages.. (a team which is a way behind bayern..)

    I guess the only argument I can see for them being favourites this year, is that with a new manager, who wont disrupt the team, maybe they will be able to maintain a better cohesion and play as one..

    Chelsea is a grave yard for strikers.. no matter how big the name when they transfer in.. The player becomes garbage.. With the only exception being Drogba


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    I think this is a little unfair. Since Abramovich came in, we've probably had three big strikers - Drogba, Torres, and Shevchenko. Torres has been a colossal failure, but there were signs at Liverpool before he left that he was declining. Shevchenko was the same - past thirty and losing a lot of his attributes. Drogba was, of course, a colossal success. Aside from that, Nicolas Anelka had a pretty successful time with us (winning on PL Golden Boot), and Sturridge furthered his career with us, even if it's obvious he didn't fulfil his potential with us due to a surprising lack of opportunity. Others, like Claudio Pizarro and Mateja Kezman, were indeed awful, but were never designed to be starters. I'm sure now Drogba has left we'll see strikers start to flourish again.
