I was looking for a place for this discussion. I thought the Euro thread and then thought, no the answer would be tainted. Then I thought about here and thought, same issue. So rather then post on two threads, what the heck I am posting here for no other reason then I post here frequently. IMO I lean to the Champions League as the better played futbol. Futbol is better played as a cohesive unit (Steve S remember 98?) not as a group of all-stars, it truly a team game. I look at US Throw-Ball and Basketball and say; see exhibit "A". So is the WC just an all-star tourney?
