    Watching United vs PSG got me thinking just how far United are behind the best teams in Europe. There is actually quite a big gap between those who can realistically win the Champions League and those who can't.

    How would you rank them on form at the moment?


    Changed my rankings at the original ranking was probably a bit unfair:

    Best teams in Europe at the moment:
    =1) City
    =1) Liverpool
    =1) Barcelona
    =1) Juventus
    5) Atletico
    6) PSG
    7) Spurs
    8) Dortmund
    9) Real Madrid (Can't really rule them out, even though they've been poor this season)

    And we've yet to play Schalke, who are apparently the worst of the lot!
    As OGS said, PSG represented an enormous step up from what they'd played, and Guardiola always stresses how difficult each CL team is.

    Cup competitions don’t necessarily decide who the best team is. Frank Lampard himself said after the game when Chelsea won it in 2012; “we know we’re not the best team in Europe, but for at least tonight we are so we’ll enjoy it”.

    Cup competitions are usually just about good cup runs and one-off performances.

    Unless you can show you can do it year after year.

    Just go to the bookies site and look how they see it.
    Them lads' view, is definitely the most accurate

    British bookies will always have our teams at shorter odds than real chances, reflecting the romantic and loyalty money wagered. City's real chance is 5 or 6 to one. Not sure why PSG seem not to be favoured.

    PSG are 6/1 which is a price nobody at this stage should be shorter than I agree.....unless it's United of course
