Thread: Would you rather Wales win the World Cup or City win the Champion's League

    Re: Would you rather Wales win the World Cup or City win the Champion's League

    Probably Wales, as it seems more timeless.

    Is it really that much of a big deal that Villa and Forest have won the European Cup? 40 years ago but seems like ancient history.

    A World Cup is still fairly rare and football fans remember who's won it.

    Wales. Although I wouldnít be picky, happy with either!

    City to win everything please.

    Wales are of no interest to me so an easy decision.

    Why is it one or the other?

    If Kieffer Moore comes off when looking tired against Stoke we're more likely to pick up 2 extra points, if he comes off when looking tired the result is unlikely to change because his contribution was minimal by that point and so he's got more gas in the tank to play the internationals. By working with better players he improves his game, and by scoring increases his confidence, so returns to play better for City which improves his form here and can take it into the games over the summer....

    Joe Allen playing 13 games in few weeks in so many weeks for Stoke now is injured for them and likely to be short on match-fitness for us...

    Success for one is almost definitely going to feed into success for the other, but ultimate success is unlikely for either.

    You were asked a simple hypothetical question.
    Why have you chosen to go off on some inane ramble? 😀

    Its correct to win the Champions League you have to spend money

    Wales to have a competitive squad need players who are not Welsh.

    Im not knocking either by the way.

    Wales for sure.

    You can buy your to Champions League glory if you throw enough cash at it.

    Wales winning the World Cup, thrown together with whatever that particular generation of players had to offer, would be a huge achievement.

    The way the Champions League is being re-organised will practically make it impossible for clubs like us to ever be involved.

    Liverpool could finish 7th or 8th this season but still be in it next year because of previous performances.

    International football seems more of a level playing field these days, if only slightly.

    Is this true?

    Only if they win this years Champions League.

    I'd happily let Wales lose every single game for the rest of time (at every sport) if it meant City won the champions league.

    Under the new system, proposed by Edwin Van Der Sar, clubs who finish outside the national league qualification (top 4) but have the highest co-efficient will take one of two wild card places in the Champions league. I think that's the jist anyway.

    It is part of the Champions League expansion, there is the possibility of the League Cup being scrapped as a result.

    It doesn't get any bigger than the World Cup. I'd even take winning the Euro's over the Champions League.

    Ask the players which one they'd prefer and I bet they'd all say the World Cup.

    Doesn't sound like it's going to help Liverpool next season.

    The League Cup needs to become the EFL Cup.

    Weird, I edited my post and it doubled up...

    Heart and mind dilemma here. Heart says City as I would be walking on air for months.
    Mind says World cup for the good it would do for the whole country and would knock rugger off the front pages for a long time.

    Who would be getting the highest coefficient spots?

    I don't know but it won't be in place for 21/22 qualification.

    Ask all the players who play for Cardiff, to choose between City and Wales and at most 6 out of 40 would choose Wales.

    Wales World Cup for me. I'd hate City to become a mega club throwing billions around which is the only way to win the Champions League

    As lardy points out, the World Cup is timeless, England still bang on about 1966 but nobody really cares that Forest & Villa were European champions

    Re: Would you rather Wales win the World Cup or City win the Champion's League

    Wales without doubt, although thereís more chance of the City option happening. Once upon a time it may have been City but Iíve lost interest in the Champions League in recent years . I donít think that will ever happen with the World Cup
