MUFC : Top club in Europe?

  While MUFC certaintly is not the no.1 in Europe, it is still one of the
best in Europe. Alongside, Juv, Inter and several others all ranked among
the top clubs of Europe.

Absolutely NO WAY.

Man U are no where near one of the best clubs in Europe, and won't be
until they actually spend some cash to replace some of their
extremely over-rated youngsters and oldsters.

I hate them.

Manchester United is not in the same Category as Juve, Inter, Real Madrid
etc....  They are probably ranked around the neighborhood of 15th in Europe
at the moment.  They have alot of improving to do to be regarded as a power.

I think that this is right up there with "John Harkes: Best player in the
world or what?"

Even though they beat juventus this season, you wouldn't rank them in
the top 15? As a matter of interest, who exactly are the 15 clubs you
would rank above them?

I wouldn't take their 'expert' label very seriously if I were you,
tell me which 17 teams are better than Man United?

I wouldn't go that far, but they should fire Ferguson.  He's frightfully
incompetent.  Brian Kidd brings up the youngsters, but Ferguson never does
anything in Europe.  His strategies and tactics against Monaco were
pathetic.  The use of Sheringham and the relegation of Scholes into midfield
is criminal.  His decision not to press with Salas was cowardly.  The
medical and physical staff must also go, given their utter failure to
prevent a serious surge of injuries in this part of the season.  With the
squad that he has, Ferguson should be walking away with the domestic league
and at least make the semifinals of the Champions League.

For the next season, I would suggest that they bring in Roy Hodgson from
Blackburn, Guy Roux from Auxerre, George Strachan from Coventry City,
Vincenzo Guidolin from Vicenza, Alberto Zaccheroni from Udinese, Ottmar
Hitzfeld formerly of Dortmund, or England's Glenn Hoddle.

Don't expect a reply to this question, although I would similarly like to
know.  They crushed everyone in the group stages looking like the best in
Europe, lost some form recently (and Giggs) and lost (on away goals) to
the French champions.  I'm convinced.  Manchester Utd are a shadow of a
team that could never expect to beat a team like Real Madrid or Juventus.

I strongly disagree.  They are number 17.

While Man U is a pretty good team, Furgeson is a clown who thinks that
close enough and a few excuses count as a title.  He is always arrogant
without any real reason to be so. Anybody who goes to Monaco and is
content with a 0-0 is a jackass. He might learn that away goals are
pretty precious.

Man U is not the only team to have had injuries and runs of bad
form--that is part of the game.  (Recall that Juventus is playing
without Ferrara their defensive bulwark and national team sweeper)
Still I think Manchester are a good team; certainly in the top 15 of
Europe. They should just win something and then just *be* Champions
instead of sort of coming close and explaining why they are not.

In point of fact they beat Juventus 3-2 at home and lost in Torino
1-0.(If i recall correctly) Home and Away they would have lost.  Still I
acknowledge that Man U are a pretty good team.
