    Bad list overall. It misses TRUE great clubs like Ajax, F.C. Porto and Liverpool and drops names of clubs who have poor history but lots of millions like Chelsea and clubs that never won the european Cup like Arsenal. It appears that today championships are won not in the field but in the bank acount.

    This list it’s pretty innacurate…
    River being 9th placed, while Boca Juniors has 18 international titles, 42 overall (3 more than River), and also a bigger number of fans.

    Boca should be at least in the first five.

  • amer

  • No Brazilian team? But Brazil has the best football in the world. Should be on this list the following teams of Brazil: Vasco da Gama, Flamengo, Corinthians, Sao Paulo

  • Man-city and liverpool are beter than river plate and arsenal

    Yeah, I find this extremely inaccurate as well. Real Madrid are not by any means no.1. Barcelona are, by a long shot. Manchester United should at least be before Real Madrid and of course, a Brazilian team should be considered in the rankings. So Barça should be placed first and Man U at least second.
