How European Super League might look based on merit…

Date published: Monday 19th April 2021 12:50 - Ian Watson

If a European Super League was based on Champions League pedigree, rather than pure, shameless greed, which teams would make the cut? And how far off would Arsenal be?

We’ve looked back over the last decade and awarded clubs points for their European achievements, with some token reward for domestic success, not that any of them appear to give a shiny f*** about that.

 

Since the 2010-11 season, each club has been awarded:
Five points for a Champions League title.
Four points for making a final.
Three points for competing in the semi-finals.
One point for a domestic league title.

Here’s what we’re left with…

And the rest

Based on this highly sophisticated, scientific method, AC Milan would have a single point for their Serie A title a decade ago. Arsenal and Inter have as many points as the Dog & F***ing Duck.
