Leicester City's 14 year old fans try to goad others by singing about winning the league, not the European cup, and Leicester are better than Forest at the minute so it has to be the league :ph34r:

In 20 years time you will be in league one and your children will be telling Fleetwood Town fans about how you won the league before they were born. Like Blackburn do now :ph34r:

Winning the league. You have to be really good and consistent during the entire season, meanwhile the cup format is different you don´t necessarily need to be the best team to win a cup competition, 2004 Greece being the best example of it. 

On the other hand, though, I guess for teams like Bayern, PSG and Juventus winning league is more of an obligation than an achievement.

For fans that have never seen their side win the league, then I completely understand that the league title is the what they want first and foremost.  But legendary clubs (in Europe at least) are made from winning the European Cup (Champions League) and that is the ultimate at club level in this continent.

What I want most for Arsenal is that Champions league.  That would be a dream come true but I doubt I'll ever see it.

Agree with this. That they won it with Roberto Di Matteo as manager and nearly won it with Avram Grant shows any fucker has a chance.

League first then UCL

This.

Winning the Champions League without being English champions in the first place means you must have benefited from the lottery of knockout football to win the European Cup because you were never even the best team in your country.

All depends on how you define the best. Is the team who can consistently grind out wins over the likes of West Brom and Swansea really better than the team who can beat the cream of the European crop over two legs? Not for me.

You can't fluke either achievement but for me claiming to be champions of Europe without being champions of your own country isn't quite right. It lacks a certain sense of legitimacy. I'd probably agree with you if we called them the "Winners of the European Cup" rather than "European Champions" which goes to show that my opinion is hardly that strong but I maintain that a bit of luck and a nice draw can get you close to the line in the CL or any cup competition whereas the league it has much less impact.
