The manager has once more claimed that winning the Champions League is his No.1 priority this season.

For me the priorities will always be different:

1. Premier League
2. Champions League
3. FA Cup
4. League Cup

Even when we overtake the scousers I'll always want to be English Champions before European Champions. I remember when the scousers won the European Cup and finished 5th in the League - no way could even they claim to be the best team in Europe . . .

i will always say the league title is more important than the champions league , if you ain't champions of your own country you should not be allowed into the tournament to start with. i might sound a little old fashioned and i realise utd have benefited from this format , likewise most winners of the champions league have it should be champions only , not most big teams from europe they just want to make big money from more games.

I agree with your post and priorities list.

It's a bigger acheivement to win the Premier League imo and it proves who's the best.

The league is always the priority for me. The Champions League is a cup which requires a bit of luck to win and is rarely won by the actual best team in Europe. But in the league you have to be consistently good for the entire season.

Premier League is the most important title to win in my opinion.. I've just read that Sir Alex has told that Champions League is first priority, cause no one has ever won it two years in a row.. I'm not agree with Sir Alex.. Premier League will always be first priority to me!

bet it's just mind games from fergie, i seriously doubt that winning the CL is more important to him than giving liverpool a chance in the league.

Champions League. And if we win the CL this year it will the same next year.

3 CL's just isn't good enough for a club like ours.

The only thing missing from us in our history is a dominating team.

Look at clubs like Madrid, Milan, Liverpool, Bayern, Ajax, Juveuntus (3 finals).

They have all had a dominating team and can all have a case for being the greatest team. We are yet to have that.

Back to back CL's would be a dream and would make history.

However, if this scenario meant that Liverpool would win the league then I'd change my mind and say the League.

Another bad thing is if we didn't win the league (but won the CL) then we would have bottled the title having been in a good position.

I'd say either.

How do you figure the FA Cup is our biggest priority? Granted, it is one of the greatest cup comps in the world, but think about other things. 18 Premiership titles this season, potentially? The first team to win back to back CLs? I'd personally take either of those over the FA Cup.

I agree, the League would be number one on my priority list as well, followed by the European Cup, the FA Cup and the Carling Cup.

Totally agree with the point made.


Winning the league requires a lot of consistency while the cup games require a bit of luck. But winning the Champions League gives a team the pride of being the best and beating the best from all over the continent and that is why I consider the Champions League as the priority. I still think that three European Cups is a little less as compared to the other teams as mentioned by TM.


I still think that even if Fergie says CL is the priority, he'll still be trying to win the league as much as the CL. We certainly won't play like Scousers with a second string team before a CL match. We may just rest one or two players.


1. Champions League
2. Premier League
3. FA Cup
4. League Cup

them 2 words in the same sentence scare me :p how did you have kids with men?

anyway as for priorities for me it would have to go

Prem title (its always best to be no1 in your league)

Fa cup (some may not agree but a league and domestic cup double is a fantastic achievement)

Champs league (the hardest of them all to win hence why i feel a lesser one to focus on, sure its amazing to win it but i think teams sometimes tend to aim at this and then there season goes down the pan and they win nowt i.e. chelski)

Carling cup (were already in the final so not really much to focus on there all thats important is the starting line up and who hopefully lifts the trophy)
:cool:
