  1. How Juventus can be on second position in this list with only 2 Champions-League titles????? Look at other clubs behind them in this list, how often they won this competition, which is by far the toughest tournament for clubs to win in Europe, or to be true, in the world, when it comes to soccer. This list is total nonsense. Okay, Juve won the Italian Serie-A League 31 times, but this can not count nearly as much, as winning a trophy like the Champions League, in which the best teams from ALL over Europe plays against each other. Crazy, Juve infront of Bayern, Barca and AC Milan. What a joke.

  2. My list would be:
    (1) Real Madrid
    (2) Bayern Munich
    (3) AC Milan
    (4) FC Barcelona
    (5) FC Liverpool
    (6) Ajax Amsterdam
    (7) Manchester United
    (8) Juventus Turin
    (9) Inter Milan
    (10) FC Porto

    Sounds alot more realistic for me. Next teams would be

    (11) Benfica
    (12) Chelsea

    Chelsea can NEVER be inside the Top Ten. Porto or Benfica have won much more than Chelsea. And the one title, Chelsea had won in the CL, the were totally lucky against a much better Bayern Munich. That Bayern lost that game was a joke, normally it must have been their seventh CL title.

  3. (1) Real Madrid
    (2) Barcelona
    (3) Bayern Munich
    (4) AC Milan
    (5) Manchester United
    (6) Ajax Amsterdam
    (7) Liverpool
    (8) Juventus
    (9) Inter Milan
    (10) FC Porto

    This sounds a lot more realistic to me. Next teams would be
    (11) Benfica
    (12) Arsenal
    I would probably put Chelsea at 13 but NEVER in the top 10’s

  4. My list
    FC Barcelona
    Real VARdrid (without cheating can’t win even half of what they have)
    Bayern Munich
    AC milan
    Manchester United
    Ajax Amsterdam
    Inter Milan
    Tie between benfica chelsea and arsenal

  5. My list would be
    1.real madrid Milan Munich
    6.manchester United
    7.inter Milan

  6. Blaugrana you are clearly a Barca supporter and great jealous and envy off the amount tittle Real Madrid has won, any excuses is good to try to dismissed but the numbers are fact and Real Madrid top of the ranking is not under question by anyone other than you. I will question Barca initial position it I leave that with you.

  7. I think it would be
    1real madrid
    2manchester united
    3bayern munich
    4 ajax or barcelona
    5 ajax or barcelona
    6 ac milan
    7 liverpool
    8 inter milan
    9 juventus
    10 porto or benfica

    I think legacy also counts

    Let me know your thoughts on this

  8. Seriously?? Chelsea not even in the top 30…

    Real, Bayern, Milan, Barca, Liverpool, Man U, Juve, Ajax, Inter, Arsenal
