Yep. You should see the 442oons parody song/video of it on YouTube. Parody of “What A Night” and includes the lyric:

Funny how people still say the Bundesliga was a very one-sided league in Europe, when in fact they've had the same number of winners as all the others except Ligue 1 who had 7 winners since 2000.

Level 75
Feb 18, 2020
However, they have had the most wins of any team on here. Bayern leads the Bundesliga with 14. Juventus leads Serie A with 11. Barcelona leads La Liga with 10. Man U leads the Premier League with 8, and Lyon leads Ligue 1 with 7, only half as many as Bayern.

These are all one-sided leagues. I was very surprised, given how popular the sport is in these countries, that there is so little variation among the winners. Who would want to watch a league where the same two teams win every year? I'd say that these leagues need to do something to make themselves more competitive, but given their popularity and profitability, they probably don't care.

Agree it is a bit depressing how little variation there is about the winners from year to year. One of the attractions to watch these competitions is obviously the standard of play. As an Australian, I watch our local A-League which is several tiers below the standard of these European competitions, which watch primarily to see the best players go about it.

That's why I think the Premier is the best league in Europe. There's usually three or four teams that are candidates to win. And lest we forget the beautiful story of Leicester City.

How is the Premier League one-sided? Four different teams have won the league over the past five seasons and only a few times has a champion retained their title since 2000...the Prem's competitiveness is what attracts fans from all over the world...the rest of the leagues are indeed relatively one-sided though
+1
Level 76
Jan 26, 2021
The only league I can agree with being one sided is Ligue 1 with PSG dominating the last years, but besides that almost every year in other leagues it comes down to the last weeks to decide which team will win (except for Liverpool last year). Bayern Munich has started lower and had to catch up the past three years (although not this year), and Barcelona and both Madrid teams have been close most years in the past decade. As you can see from this quiz Premier League winners switch off quite often.
+1
Level 78
May 29, 2023
By the end of season 22-23, things have changed quite a bit. Manchester City has won 5 out of the past six titles. Same for PSG. And Bayern has won the last eleven German championships. Far too one-sided, for my tastes.
+1
Level 79
Oct 12, 2023
I don't get this. Most sports leagues have teams that succeed for multiple years, hence the terms 'dynasty' or 'superteam.' The biggest factor for me would be quality of play and competition regardless of who ends up winning the title.

No other team can compete with Bayern in the long run though, while in other leagues you have at least two dominant teams over the decades.

Ligue 1 is easily the weakest of the supposed Big 5 leagues in Europe. Throughout 65 years of UEFA club competitions, French league clubs have managed to win a grand total of 2 European trophies. And while French clubs produce an abundance of good players, the league is too weak financially to hold on to them.

3 years later i made the same mistake again :D

But now i can explain why: I'm from germany and here, some team names are often translated (e.g. AC Mailand https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/AC_Mailand). AS Rom(e) is another example, so taking this english quiz I translated the name as I know it (AS Rom) to english (AS Rome) and not to the original AS Roma.

I can see why you don't want to accept the type-ins though, as it's not a common name in english. That said, I personally like it when quiz answers are accepted regardless of spelling mistakes, but then again it becomes difficult to define what should be accepted

Any special reason why Rome isn't accepted for Roma? Is there a better known Rome team? Madrid, Barcelona, Milan, Liverpool, Liecester, Munich, etc work... only other exception I noticed was Atletico Madrid I guess because Real Madrid is a much better known team. And of course the two Manchesters.

Teams aren't translated to fit the city name in English. Perhaps the main exception is Bayern München, which does get translated to Bayern Munich

(Milan isn't truly "translated". It is called Milan, instead of Milano, because the team was founded by two Englishmen).

It's frustrating how anticompetitive top-level futbol is. I guess this explains why a small number of teams have such a large percentage of the total fanbase. In other sports, the bandwagon fans have to change teams all the time and make excuses for why...in futbol, they can get on the bandwagon and stay there for a long time as their team wins every title for a decade.

I get what you're saying but it doesn't really seem anti-competitive to me. It almost entirely has to do with money and prestige I think, and soccer fans are legendary for their dedication to their teams, even horrible ones. Clubs often play for multiple trophies each season too and top teams don't always win those.

Level 77
May 28, 2023
The name "Juventus FC", on the other hand, doesn't even reveal where the club is based, so if someone remembers the city but not the exact name, the former should be accepted too. You do with both "Bayern" and "Munich" as well. The argument about cities with multiple clubs is valid, but in this case, Torino doesn't even appear on the list, so it shouldn't matter.
+1
Level 79
Oct 12, 2023
No it shouldn't be accepted. 'Bayern' and 'Munich' are both acceptable ways to refer to the club, but nobody ever says 'Turin' to refer to Juve. That's like saying 'Sevilla' should work for Real Betis despite the fact that there's another team called Sevilla, or that 'London' should work for Arsenal despite the fact that there are usually five to seven London teams in the Premier League at a time.
