That was just such a poor game to watch, United controlled the match but didn't create enough chances, while Villarreal just came and sat back for a point. Our slow start to the season continues and we've still not got going yet. Just a shame we have so many big fixtures hitting us so early and after Champions League games. These fixtures have set out to bust us this season early on!! Ronaldo cam on for his first game back which was good to see but now hoping most of the players are fit for Sunday's big game!

Sid come on man!! They were both clear penalties. First one he stamped on the foot, the second one he leans his leg straight across Park's and brings him down. That was 2 penalties we should have had but as usual crappy referee's have their say :ranting:

Well done Steven Gerrard, anyone would concede that that first goal was an amazing strike, and the winner was good too! And also great job from Reina preventing all of Marseille's attacks!

Liverpool got a win but played bad,Marseille were all over liverpool in the last 20 minnets.

sid, we played bad, but like you said only in the last 20 minutes!!! The rest of the game we were on top and still no-one has commented on Steven Gerrards goal of the season! We scored more goals and outplayed them. Even when it came to the last 20 minutes sid, our keeper was still world class and prevented an equaliser!

Champions League - European Power Rankings


It's official, CFR Cluj are better than European champions Manchester United. Well, at least they are according to the first edition of our European Power Rankings.

 :rofl_2: :rofl_2: :rofl_2:

We take into account both domestic and Champions League performances, plus the relative difficulty of each team's league, to find out who is the best team in Europe.

Cluj kicked off their Champions League campaign with a shock victory over Roma and, coupled with their domestic form, that win sees the Romanian side enter the fledgling European Power Rankings table in an impressive ninth place. That is 12 rungs higher up the ladder than United, whose poor start to the season means they don't even make it into the top 20.

At the top of the table, Italian giants Internazionale and Juventus set the pace, although Premier League duo Chelsea and Liverpool are hot on their tails. Both Madrid clubs follow in fifth and sixth while Porto and Bayern Munich - despite their thumping by Werder Bremen at the weekend - occupy seventh and eighth. Completing the top 10, just below Cluj, are Barcelona.

Premier League leaders Arsenal weigh in at 13th after dropping points in their Champions League opener against Dynamo Kiev, but it has been a good start for European minnows Anorthosis Famagusta, who are a place ahead of Arsene Wenger's side.

Celtic may have only drawn against Aalborg, but their Scottish Premier League form - 13 points from six games - elevates them into 17th, ahead of such luminaries of European football as Sporting Lisbon, Bremen and Fiorentina. And, of course, United.

1. Internazionale - 26.67

2. Juventus - 26.67

3. Chelsea - 26.00

4. Liverpool - 26.00


5. Atletico Madrid - 25.00

6. Real Madrid - 25.00

7. Porto - 22.50

8. Bayern Munich - 22.20

9. CFR Cluj - 22.00

10. Barcelona - 21.67

11. Shakhtar Donetsk - 19.00

12. Anorthosis Famagusta - 17.00

13. Arsenal - 17.00

14. Lyon - 17.00

15. Villarreal - 16.67

16. Dynamo Kiev - 14.50

17. Celtic - 13.67

18. Sporting Lisbon - 13.50

19. Werder Bremen - 12.20

20. Fiorentina - 11.67

(21. Manchester United - 11.25)

HOW IT WORKS

Scores are based on points per game in domestic league and Champions League games.

Domestic points per game is multiplied by the league coefficient - either 4, 4.5 or 5 - with teams in stronger leagues getting more credit.

League coefficients:

5 - England, Italy, Spain (12 teams)

4.5 - Germany, France, Portugal, Russia, Netherlands (10 teams)

4 - Belarus, Cyprus, Denmark, Romania, Scotland, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine (10 teams)

Champions League victories are counted as three points for a win. They are all multiplied by a coefficient of 5.

Example: Chelsea

11 points from 5 Premier League games = 2.20 points per game.

Multiplied by league coefficient of five - 2.54 x 5 = 11.00

Three points from one Champions League game = 3 points per game.

Multiplied by European coefficient of five - 15.00

Total score = 15.00 + 11.00 = 26.00

We finished top last year and I'm very confident we'll soon be top this year and finish in our rightful position. As long as there's a couple of trophies won in May though things like this don't at all matter.

I posted this article because I thought power rankings were not only based in the results but also in squads.
you can put Arsenal instead of Manchester United, still it's ridiculous that Cluj and Anorthosis are ranked higher.
