    Of course, the other guy was the capable person in this skit, and Bean failed the test if I recall.

    2 out 3 Italian teams have lost their finals. We'll see if the charm is with Inter.

    I know, somehow remember watching that episode lol. But it's a meme. There's a good chance we get destroyed, so why not have fun at least heading to the final while we can.

    You are aware that Zlatan was a CF at Juve, Inter, Milan AND Barca? And we're talking Juve, Inter and Milan back in the day when Serie A actually meant something (though it's obviously not the same Milan as Shevchenko's).

    Don't forget, Barca gave Eto'o+20M to Inter in exchange for Zlatan, and in the following season Inter won the CL, along the way knocking out Barca with Messi, Xavi, Iniesta, Puyol, Zlatan etc.

    How much more of a European Powerhouse did he need?

    Not only that but Barcelona won the CL again a year after he left. I think he dislikes Inter & Pep for this alone.

    Just like Lewandowski, Zlatan have always been accused of not being very good in the big, decisive games and I'm not sure Ronaldo and Messi not being there would have changed that (he even once played with Messi IIRC)

    also, playing for Sweden is no boost in the race for a Ballon d'or

    Not having a CL trophy to his name didn't help either, despite playing in very good teams.

    Inter you're our only hope

    I'd like to ask - does winning the CL mean something for Man City? They are so foreign to me as a club (small wonder, considering I am a foreigner) so I don't know if they would value it? It's like playing with cheat codes on easy mode. 

    Unlimited resources in every area of the field plus the bench vs Inter's team full of free signings, humble hard workers and veterans. The more I think about how that game will look, the more I realize how small Inter's chances are.

    Yeah, but Real are generally one of the favourites.  if you look at teams in Europa league, Sevilla wouldn't be one of the top 5 or 6 favourites when the CL teams drop down, so winning 7 times in 15 years is statistically weird. 

    To be fair, Sevilla are unmatched shithousers and get away with plenty of it. That partially explains the weird statistics, but there's something else to it I guess.

    is there any other sport/tournament where one side does freakishly well in?  its so random that they dominate.  Its not even like they were particularly good those years, league positions of 5th, 3rd, 5th, 5th, 7th, 4th and currently 11th. 

    Another Spanish team - Real Madrid in the Champions League. 5 times in 10 years.

    And deprive the world of the second coming of C. Ronaldo at United? Or the Norwegian cyborg not playing at the financially doped Cheatey? 

    No, Sir, Levy did everything right there. :D

    Don't know who the second coming of C. Ronaldo should be. And tbh, Haaland was an established name before City bought him, I don't think Tottenham could've signed him at that point in time anyways.
