I don't mind them finishing below City, Arsenal or Chelsea tbh. They simply have to get top 4 though. Anything else is a disgusting underachievement.

Says who? they have more CLs, league titles are irrelevant because no competition. Same reason why Madrid has like 40 La Ligas lol.

Also their fanbase has been much bigger for a long, long time. ( before they were the brand they are today) It's only a debate to Juve fans lol.

The only clubs who have an argument to be bigger are Barca, Madrid and maybe Bayern.


Agreed. But I respect and like Juve very much since I was a kid, followed them closely for a few seasons (almost all games) and I always felt them very close to Man United in terms of anything. Same with AC Milan (due to their amazing performances in UCL).

Just retweeted: 'If you actually think in 2016 that Manchester United are better than Juventus, change sport. Football isn't for you.'

Which begs the question: IS United a bigger club than Juve? hmm


Comfortably bigger, But not better in the current scenarios.

If you see United as a brand, you English people will put it on par with Madrid. But reality is they arent. They were a mediocre club before SAF. Juventus have been successful for almost 80-90 years. Its the most supported Italian club and still has a massive fanbase albeit not as big as United.

The only argument here is money. And they generate nearly 2x as much as Juventus.

Same, i respect them a lot as well. If i sound like i'm being derogatory to them i apologize but tbh looking at it realistically Man Yoo are a bigger club.

There's no shame in that though.

He is still a WC player though. He is a huge improvement on Fellaini, Herrera, Rooney and Lindgaard. Doesn't matter if he plays in a pivot or 3. He is still going to make a difference.

Juve is historically the bigger club.  Man u has been the bigger club for the past 10+ year though.

Overall?  It's a draw imo.  Both are big clubs.

They had a lean period between SAF and their last great period but they were not a mediocre club before SAF.

That's like saying Arsenal were a mediocre club before Wenger when it's really not that case.

Because they can buy whoever they want regardless of CL. Most likely they will win the PL and get back in the CL while we will wait till 31st august and put in a 10m bid to get mario gomez and finish 4th


Mario Gomez would be a good addition tbf.

And you will finish above Manunited in the table.

Juventus have been successful in almost every decade in the 20th century in the toughest league in the world with the best teams at least back then. That counts for something. Juventus have had more Ballon D'or winners too.

Man United were just a good club before SAF. Juventus were the best club back then. Sorry its laughable when someone says United is historically bigger than Juventus.

In fact SAF used to model his team on Juventus. Thats how highly he regarded Juventus. He put Juve right up there.

It really depends on which adjective you use when using the term bigger. You could compare them historically, Worldwide fans, Brand, Money, Players, Domestically, European performances everything has a different result.

I'm sorry but you can't say a team which had a European Cup to it's name before SAF, which you didn't till the 80s is mediocre lol.

Because Juventus have historically been a team that have aimed for the league and they still do. For them that was the best competition back then. But that mentality changed and they started gunning for European honours. Juventus has won every international trophy in its history and were the first club to do so.

Some unreal ignorance on this forum.

Let's all agree that nothing more has to be discussed than it has been said in this thread regarding these comparisons. Both clubs are amazing and we (Man United and Juve fans) should respect both of them, for the hard work of their staffs and their players during the years which ended with spectacular footballing moments.

Anything more from now on concerning this subject is just puerile in my opinion. Why? Because we forget what football is really about.

Spending 100m on a player that doesn't guarantee you winning games, Damn. The market is done.

The big differences today are as follows:
-  Man U play in a better and far more publicized league
-  Juve play CL this season and Man U is in Europa
-  Man U has far more spending power than Juve
-  In term of superstars, Man U has more superstars
-  In terms of which team is better, I would say Juve until proven otherwise
-  In terms of brand.... that's a hard one.  Depends where.  Juve is a bigger brand in Latin America and Africa no doubt.  It's a draw in the US.  In Asia, Man U is much bigger

In the end, Pogba made the ONLY decision that he could tbh.  Too much money and exposure to refuse Man U.  Juve will be fine in the short term... although Higuain needs to come up big.  Based on his current fitness, Higuain is worrisome.
