Definitive ranking of the European power of 90 minutes
After a year in which:
– Bayern Munich have won five trophies.
– COVID ruined everything.
– Liverpool won the Premier League.
– COVID ruined everything.
– Leeds United won promotion to the Premier League.
– COVID RUINS EVERYTHING !!!!!!!
We at 90 minsThe headquarters of Definitive European Power Rankings decided to try – TRY – to end the year on a high note by ranking the top 15 teams of the year with quotes from some of the best films of 2020 (yes, some films have been released in 2020):
“This is not the Great Beyond. This is the Big Before. ” (Soul)
2020 seemed like a “big step forward” for Aston Villa – a year in which the club laid the groundwork for a damn exciting future.
They convinced Jack Grealish to sign a contract extension, they solved their attacking problem by signing Ollie Watkins, they got John McGinn back in good shape. and they strengthened their defense.
Now, as 2021 approaches, Villa are one of the best teams in the league and look set to only get better.
“We have to take what we can when the hold is right.”
“It sounds dangerous.”
“So everything is worth doing. (First cow)
While the Premier League’s big boys struggle to find any kind of consistency, Southampton are taking advantage while he’s there to be caught.
They racked up points at the club’s record rate in 2020 thanks in large part to the truly lovable man Ralph Hasenhuttl.
“You have to start looking at the world in a different way.” (Principle)
2020 was the story of two opposing polar tactical approaches for SSC Napoli.
During the first half of the year, Gennaro Gattuso set up his squad to sneak a goal and defend it for their life. And, you know, credit where it’s due worked – Napoli did just that to win Coppa Italia.
In the second half of the year, I Partenopei went on the offensive, trying to beat any teams they came up against. And the credit is still there, but it works too – Naples are one of the first to lift the Scudetto in 2021.
“People stay in unhealthy relationships because it’s easier. Basic physics. A moving object tends to stay in motion. People tend to stay in relationships past their expiration date. This is Newton’s first law of emotion. ” (I think at the end of things)
The relationship between Neil Lennon and Celtic has passed its expiration date. The results have been terrible over the past few months and the Bhoys appear doomed to watch their Old Firm rivals Rangers lift the SPFL trophy at the end of the 2020/21 season.
“So why are Celtic on this list?
That’s a good question with a fairly simple answer: trophies.
Despite how horrible they have been this season, Celtic won a fourth consecutive treble last season.
Three trophies in 2020 = place at the end of the year Definitive ranking of European power. This is how it works.
“Gentlemen, welcome back…” (Da 5 Bloods)
After seeing their big rival Benfica win the Primeira Liga title in 2019, Porto fought back in 2020.
The Portuguese giants not only reclaimed the league title in 2020, but they also won the Taca de Portugal (equivalent to the FA Cup) and advanced to the knockout stages of the UEFA Champions League.
Porto, welcome to the great times.
“The story is not there yet. It’s coming, but maybe this time we can take it on our own terms. ” (First cow)
Ok, let’s say some numbers to confirm why the Rangers are 10th at the end of the year Final European Power Rankings.
Ranger Season 2020/21 so far:
Goals scored: 85
Goals conceded: 15
Difference in objectives: +60
A first SPFL title in a decade has yet to arrive. But it comes.
“Don’t try to figure it out – feel it.” (Principle)
Leeds United are not the best team in Europe (being ninth in DEPR tells you a lot), but they might be the most fun to watch.
As likely to lose 6-2 as they are to win 5-0 – they did both over the Christmas period – Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds are a team we will never fully understand, but still appreciate him .
Oh too, stay out of Twitter Leeds. Or, you know, get someone other than a 12 year old boy to at least manage your official account.
“So, are you good or bad?”
“It depends on the century.”
“We are fighting for what we think is right.” (The old guard)
Are Juventus good or bad?
A ninth consecutive Scudetto suggests the first, but looking at the team week after week suggests the second.
I guess we’ll find out in 2021 …
“You can’t capture a man’s entire life in two hours. All you can hope for is to leave the impression of a man. ” (Mank)
Usually, you can’t check a football team’s credentials in an hour and a half. One game is usually not enough.
So when Lyon beat Man City to reach the UEFA Champions League semi-finals, most people thought it was just fluke. However, when you look at how well the Ligue 1 team have performed since that win, you’ll see that the Lyon that showed up for the quarter-final meeting with Man City are, well, Lyon.
That’s who they are right now.
It is one of the best teams in Europe. Their victories over Juventus, Man City, Paris Saint-Germain and their place at the top of Ligue 1 prove it.
“You just have to trust us.” (Da 5 bloods)
Sevilla are the first football team to trust Julen Lopetegui in quite some time, and that trust was rewarded with a massive and rather odd big trophy called the Europa League in 2020.
The very, very, very decent form of Los Nervionenses since winning this trophy rightly places them among the European elite this year.
“Is winning an election the first thing on your wishlist? Equality, justice, education, poverty and progress, are they second? ” (The Chicago Trial 7)
Winning football matches is the first thing on Real Madrid’s wishlist. Everything else is second.
For the most part in 2020, Real Madrid have won football matches.
And although football has not been great, while there are concerns about the lack of goals scored by people not named “Sergio Ramos” or “Karim Benzema”, Los Blancos have continued to win games. And that’s all that matters to them.
“In the real world, power goes where it always goes, to people who already have it.” (Power of the project)
Listen, we’ve already discussed how awesome Lyon are and how awesome it is to be top of Ligue 1, but we all know how the 2020/21 season ends.
It ends with PSG as champions, and probably also as national treble winner.
In Ligue 1, the title goes where it always goes, at Paris Saint-Germain.
“We have a real connection. A rare and intense attachment. I’ve never experienced anything like it. ” (I think at the end of things)
How is it possible?
How is Zlatan Ibrahimovic, a 39-year-old striker who suffered a serious cruciate ligament injury, able to sign for AC Milan and immediately make them unbeatable?
How is he still this good?
How? ‘Or’ What?!
HOW? ‘OR’ WHAT?!!!!!!!
“I must. Heck, I’m late. ” (Soul)
While 2020 has been the somewhat crappy spectacle of a year (to say the least), Liverpool fans will be comforted by the fact that they have finally seen their football team win a Long awaited Premier League.
We predict that they won’t have to wait that long for another.
“The shine must be recognized.” (Gentlemen
I want to say, of course Bayern Munich lead the 2020 end-of-year DEPR.
It’s the best team in Europe. It’s just a fact.
The victory in the UEFA Champions League proves it, as does the Bundesliga title… and DFB-Pokal… and the UEFA Super Cup… and the DFB-Supercup.
They have won everything.
They beat everyone.
They are the best.
