Manchester United clearly aren't the better team though when you look at their games over the whole season - whereas Arsenal are (fact they are unbeaten says it all really in the premiership).fenian said:They won the champions league so they were the best team in europe this season.
You just can't argue with results, the so called better teams bottled it and porto produced the goods.
hence the best team. what the poll should be called is, do you think that because an unfashionable team won the CL it was a freak year?
lets put it into an english perspective, because man u usually win the premier league this year was a freak because arsenal won it. man u are a better team.
hmm.. Paulo Ferreira yes, creme de lá creme of europe at this point, but Nuno Valente? Pay a second close look at Porto's game last night and you'll see how he was the main source of danger to his own defense, failing in more than 4,5 ocasions. It's one of those players that works wonders with mourino, in porto, in this context but would not deliver in outher situations. Paulo Ferreira no, that is a modern, all round full back.phrase said:Icos I love Paolo Ferreira and Nuno Valente,superb fullbacks!!!!
