    1. It is always difficult to make clear who is number one is the Americas among Penarol-Boca-River. At least number of supporters could not determine level of all-time performance at all.
      But River Plate is considered to have the most peak in history just refer to "The Great La Maquina" so this is the main advantage to Boca while Penarol also had a very peak in 1960s and it has lowest flaws among this three so I select them as number one.

      Bayern ? If consider since 1965, I'd not hesitate to rank them in number two but it has to be ranked much lower in the whole history as it was just an average German team in the pre-war era. In another topic of the best seasonal teams of all-time, I rate Barcelona in twice seasons there more than several teams. Barcelona also had a high potential to win distinctive European Cup in 1st 1950s. Juve won five Series A in the 1st 1930s but they failed to win even Mitropa Cup and it is well-known to have lower continental profile than Milan and Barca.

      Montediveo and Ah-Ahly ? Let me first try to believe whether its should be within top 150.

  2. I believe you can not help but consider the amount of fans to determine the greatness of a club ... much more in South America where the most fervent fans ...

    mouth has more fans, more championships, more classic and 0 drops to the second division ... no comparison between mouth and river plate ... the latter is more kid.


    river and that machine only won 4 or 5 local championships, and when he went to play the South American tournament (Copa Libertadores precursor) came second .. Instead the mouth bianchi 1998-2004 ... won five local tournaments, 3 liberators, 2 intercontinental and has the record for most games unbeaten in the history of Argentina football.


    creame in all South American juniors rankings mouth comes first ... 18 international cups and the 16 million fans who are making a difference ... and never a club like the first series PEÑAROL as it has just 1 million 500 thousand fans , 8 international cups and has no stadium ..... the 48 championships that have can not be counted as the quality of teams in the Uruguayan football is not the same as in the Argentine and Brazilian leagues



    with respect to bayern munich ... in my opinion is much better than barcelona ... since it surpasses everything, absolutely everything.

    say that it is previous to 1956 barcelona history is unacceptable, as the football clubs started to be competitive level from that year ... in any case can not be compared local leagues having barcelona bayern munich with.


    I meant Nacional (Uruguay)

    Alhy and is the largest club of africa, with millions of fans and 18 international cups in my opinion ....

  4. Johan Cruyff greatest manager than Guardiola? Migueli in the starting lineup? I think that Puyol was better than Migueli. Laudrup and Neeskens in place of Xavi and Iniesta? Alves better than Sergi. My Barcelona's starting lineup with 4-3-3 will be: GK-Ramallets DF: Alves-Koeman-Puyol-Segarra MF:Schuster-Xavi-Iniesta FW: Ronaldinho-Ronaldo-Messi. Coach: Guardiola.

    1. Nesskens is set as DM so it need to save his place.
      M.Laudrup is considered to achieve higher peak than Iniesta although he played a lot few seasons.
      Puyol could be better than Migueli, let me update when have time.
      Guardiola has been the greatest manager ever of Barca.

    I'm a liverpool fan but it pains me to say that i, if i would be realistic think that manchester united is greater club than LFC. But i want to hear your reasons for putting liverpool in front, so i know what to say to defend liverpool next time when i get in a discussion. I'm sure you have good reasons. Just give me a reason and i will change my opinion.

    1. It is easy. Liverpool is clearly has a better European record, also participated in ten more English top flight seasons than Man Utd. In All-Time Table, Liverpool is stand at 1st while Man Utd is only 4th place. Man Utd is just slightly better in FA Cup and number of double/triple champions so I think it should be clear that Liverpool is definitely a superior in overall history.

    1. They're basically not the third best club in Europe in early 1930s, never get to final match of Mitropa Cup. In 1930, they weren't participate, in 1931, they're beaten at quarter-final round. in 1932, they reach semi-finalist but being beaten 4-0 in the away match.

  11. In the first half of the 90s the best team was the São Paulo

    Champion Intercontinental Cup in 1992 and 1993, America's Libertadores champion in 1992 and 1993, Brazilian champion in 1991, champion of the Libertadores Supercopa in 1993, champion of the Recopa Sudamericana in 1993 and 1994, Champion Conmebol Cup in 1994 and champion São Paulo in 1991 and 1992.

    It was clearly better than Cruyff Barcelona, Marseille and Milan

    The team should be first and you have to correct this error

  12. Boca Juniors in the second half of the decade of 00 was better than milan

    2004-2007

    Champion of the Copa Libertadores (2007), Twice champion of the South American Cup (2004 and 2005), Twice champion of the Recopa Sudamericana (2005 and 2006) and Argentine Twice (2005 - Apertura and 2006 - Clausura). It was the first (and so far only) team to win the South American Cup twice in a row

    It deserves the 1st place

    1. I understand you're referring to the mid-2000s (2004 - 2006) according to the period time stipulation in this list. Based on this period, they just achieved Copa Libertadores Cup runner-up once time. Sao Paolo won one champion and runner-up once but it could not be compared number and level of trophies between continents directly as UEFA Champion League is much higher standard than Copa Libertadores Cup. But still, I need to Add Sao Paolo in top three as they even beat Liverpool in World Club Cup.

    São Paulo is higher than the national and Santos
    Boca Juniors has 6 Libertadores and World 3 is the most team america

    Arsenal can not be greater than the São Paulo since it has no continental title

      Thanks for the reply. I look forward to seeing one good list of best clubs ever that's not based just on number of trophies.

  19. Strange that with all the honours Rangers have won including a European trophy and appearing in three other finals they can only come in 47th. Arsenal, rated by you as world's best in the 1930's never managed to beat Rangers during that period in the unofficial British champions matches. perhaps food for thought.

    1. Tommy, I know there are many points in this list can be criticized. This list is being implemented methodologically in complete version. The project has been progressed 80 % within 7 months and I plan to finish in July. Then, we will see where would Rangers be finished.

    I think that Gerrard should be in the best Liverpool player ever. And that is using your calculations. He is better in domestic competitions, slightly behind Dalglish in int. club comp. but Dalglish didn't spend his whole career in Liverpool so part of his score comes from Celtic.
