At face value CL > Any league. There are League champions in each and every league around Europe every year, but only 1 CL winner.

 

That said, I want the league.

Winning in Europe is far more prestigious than winning a domestic league. We're all desperate to get the League monkey off our back but once we've done that I'll go back to my usual position of prioritising Europe.

We wanted to shag Miss England again but we ended up balls deep in Miss World for the 6th time instead.

Where did it all go wrong?

Ordinarily champions league but when you haven't won your own league for 30 years it's no surprise that's the one people want. Id gladly trade number 7 for number 19. I don't think I'd trade number 7 for number 20 though.

Had this discussion with my dad a few times. I wanted the league more, but only because of the length of time since we last won it.

 

My dad said all season he'd rather have the European Cup, and after we won it he said to me "If it's a choice next year, I'd take the European Cup again".

 

Ordinarily I would too, but I want the monkey off our back.

 

That being said, since we won number I can't say I've really spent any time whatsoever thinking about missing out on the league.

 

It is funny though listening to him talking about the title like it's the League Cup or something. Completely dismissing it because it's not as prestigious as winning the European Cup!

 

"No, it's the European Cup you want, that's the big one."

All other things being equal I'd agree with CL > League, or at least equal to it, but not currently. Maybe if I was a decade older or younger I might feel differently.

 

But while we've won the league in my lifetime but I wasn't old enough to have clear memories of it.

 

I don't have clear memories of the aftermath of Istanbul because I legally got shitfaced.

We haven’t won the league since I was a kid. We’ve won the European Cup twice in recent history. 

 

There will be hundreds of thousands of reds who have never never seen us win the league. 

 

League first next season. 

 

Then we can make big ears our focus again.

On the league versus the Champions League debate. Football has changed an awful lot since I first started supporting us in 1970. Shanks said 'The League was your bread and butter.' That was when you had to be champions in order to challenge for the biggest trophy in Europe the following season. Now finishing in the top 4 is your bread and butter. It would be nice to win the league, especially for the younger fans who haven't had that pleasure, it would also shut those Manc bastards up as well as certain other clubs. I'm desperate myself for us to get that monkey off our backs. However, if you are talking prestige then it has to be the CL you covert more. It would also be nice to win the Club World Cup next season, complete our collection.

I think if we do win the league it will be like when the trotters win the lottery.  We won’t know what to do with ourselves.  In a strange way the fact we haven’t won it for so long makes us the fan base that we are.  Take all the sentiment and emotion out of it and we are by far the most interesting football club in world football and it’s because of not winning things all the time and when we do it tends to be a supernatural/spiritual experience.

The run we've had since the late 80's early 90's would have decimated most fan bases, ours has grown. That is down to our adventures in Europe and being classed as European Royalty.

I reckon Lampard is going to be a top manager one day. Most likely not at Chelsea since he'll never get the time to develop there but I'd be surprised if he doesn't become successful somewhere.

Controversial.

 

Everyone was hoping he´d be starting every week.

Our owners do and that's all that counts.
