    Semantics. PSG aren't an English team or have an English connection, so it doesn't count.

    Who would you consider the best?

    I like hearing the differing views. :smiley-laughing002:

    I genuinely have no idea who I would class as the best.

    So by that logic ancelotti is the best manager in the world now that he's wiped the floor with pep.

    I just disagree with you mate. I think Guardiola and his style has forced teams in the last few years to go super defensive. It seems like there's only two styles now; you're either big and rich enough to dominate possession and force the game (Celtic in Scotland), or you accept you're poorer, sit back, defend and hope to hit on the counter (Celtic in Europe).

    I'm sure there used to be more tactical diversity than this, Pep has made football boring.

    When Barca were beautiful in 2008-2011 it was because they had 3 of the greatest players of all time playing at their peak in the same team at the exact same time - that will never happen again. Xavi, Iniesta and Messi at their best didn't need tactics or a manager - they could have won with a cleaner in charge.

    Jose clearly, success follows him wherever he goes. He might spend alot of money but he atleast builds his teams, pep as of yet hasnt done that.

    Ancelotti has a chance of being only the 2nd manager ever to have won 3 European Cups, big legend

    As does Jose!

    An interesting final in more than one way.

    Mourinho is going for that too isn't he?

    I'm hoping for a Madrid derby final.

    Well played by Real, can't see past them for the trophy with the form Ronaldo's been in this season. Can't believe how poor Bayern were, or how average they've seemed this season in the CL, especially in the latter stages.

    Hopefully a Madrid derby final. Although I have a feeling Chelsea will sneak through if I'm honest.
