I'm freerolling homie, nobody won it twice in a row, the curse might be too strong.

Where is the Martial for £60m coming from? It was £36m plus add ons.

£16m of those add-ons are almost a foregone conclusion as he needs just another goal with Utd. and around 12 more caps with France. The other £8m is if he's nominated for a Ballon d'Or, and that one seems a bit more unlikely although that nomination list is usually 20-25 players long.

The main point though, is that Monaco hasn't done this by pouring obscene amounts of money into the club, but rather with shrewd signings of young players. They haven't spent more than £14m on a player since Summer '13, but obviously Rybolovlev coming into the picture and briefly splashing money around raised the profile of the club. They were in Ligue 2 just 5 seasons ago after all.

Re: UEFA Champions League 2016-17 feat. VARDY and HURRIKANE

Marty's point is valid though. Pouring a ton of money in first makes it easier to do a Southampton later. Also considering how good they were 14 years ago it's not like this is some tiny club like Leicester doing this. Still impressive mind you.

Best draw possible for anyone who couldn't bear another Madrid derby in the final.

Will take Juve at even money to progress if you're offering?

Hopefully Atletico win. They really deserve to win it.

Them or Monaco please.

Re: UEFA Champions League 2016-17 feat. VARDY and HURRIKANE

I wouldn't mind any non Real winner tbh.

Juventus whilst I don't like them at all have only won it twice in their history which is ridiculous. Wouldn't be too annoyed. Would prefer Athletico or Monaco tbh though.

Atletico - Juve final would be awful. Real - Monaco best possible outcome entertainment wise, but I'd rather not risk the ****s winning it again, so hoping for Atletico - Monaco.

Madrid - Juve / Monaco fine by me. But if atletico win it, I'd be happy for their lot considering losing both those finals - just rather not see them play.

QF/SF are better football moments in Champion's league, except Liverpool-Milan 2005 and United-LolBayern 1999

As a neutral fan i'd pick the 100% Madrid final, rather than double header

Really? Seems odd to me considering you can see them play 2+ times a year anyway.

Re: UEFA Champions League 2016-17 feat. VARDY and HURRIKANE

Vrsaljko, Juanfran, Carrasco, Gimenez won't make it, Atletico won't have a natural RB, Marcelo and Isco should dismantle that wing. Benzema starting would be yet another travesty.
