Yes well that wasn't the team persay, It was Peps' team selection and subsequent failure to change it when even Stevie Wonder could see that we were achieving nothing. That was also the worst line up over this great period which kind of underlines this theory. ;)Still baffled how we let them cun#s beat us
Best team in the world? Not yet
To sum up we almost certainly are but nobody will care looking back at us if we don’t turn that superiority into a CL win at some point.
Here‘s an example...how many people think Brazil 1970 was the best National side ever? Lots. However the 1982 Brazil team were better I think but never get mentioned because they went out to a lucky Italy 3-2.
And the Geeks shall inherit the earthThe other thing is it depends who you ask. If you were to ask a top club and they had to answer objectively there would be no conversation as they all have the data showing who is performing the best and right now that is City. That’s why you have rival Managers like Klopp and Ancelloti stating it like it’s a fact rather than a debate, they know where their own team stands and, as a result, who is top. Interestingly if you ask Google it normally refers you to Satista and Statista refers you to the 538 rankings.
If you ask a supporter most will say whoever wins the CL. Most of the time that’s wrong but it’s what most people believe even if the club that won it 11 months ago has had a terrible run since.
On a related point I see City are going head to head with Liverpool in the data stakes.
A PhD in computational astrophysics, developing trading systems for a £30bn hedge fund and policy advisor for the British government: not your typical CV for a member of backroom staff. However, these are just some of the credentials of Laurie Shaw, who has been appointed Lead AI Scientist by...trainingground.guru
Bayern's level has dropped a bit this season but they're still the only team who can be considered the best in the world. So yeah, at worst City are the second best team in the world but it will mean nothing if you don't win the CL soon.
