A lot of Euro superclubs are more analogous to each other than any American teams.

I thought Liverpool would have been more along the lines of Albuquerque High School this season =)

Arsenal = Indianapolis Colts (believe in building from within and don't spend a lot of money on free agents).

No not really, this is all done in good humour.

My Aunt is a huge Liverpool fan, I love her, but I have to lock up the valuables when she visits

Don't know much about European teams, but I can provide some overview on the NBA teams for you fellas to compare.

San Antonio Spurs - Quiet, drama-free, no prima donnas, has finished in top place in the league last two years. Can be considered underachievers (kinda like Spain national team had been in the past) because they were eliminated in the playoffs (1st round in 2011, conference finals this year). 4-time champions.
Oklahoma City Thunder (OKC) - Young, energetic, coming-of-age, maturing, making great improvements every year. Also drama-free and no prima donnas. Plays well even when under great pressure. Despite loss to eventual champions Mavericks in 2011's Western Conference Finals, OKC received much praise and earned the respect of many for their performance. In this year's playoffs, they have faced and eliminated past championship teams (4-0 against Mavericks, 4-1 against Lakers, and 4-2 against Spurs) to make the Finals.
New York Knicks - Dysfunctional, season performance reads like a heartbeat (peaks and drops), continuing change of starters, emphasis on acquiring star players (Carmelo Anthony, Amar'e Stoudemire, Tyson Chandler) rather than developing the roster. Makes playoffs only to be knocked out (badly) in 1st round (0-4 to Celtics in 2011, 1-4 to Miami Heat).
Miami Heat - Team hyped by three stars (LeBron James, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh) brought together with a promise to win many championships to come. James announced his Decision to join the team in a much criticized TV special, but despite his incredible talent has yet to demonstrate championship caliber when under intense pressure, especially during 4th quarters. 1-time champion. Current coach not well-respected by the team.
Chicago Bulls - 6-time champions (a pair of three straights) under Michael Jordan. Poised to rescale that level in recent years. Right combination of youth, experience and deep roster. However, star Derrick Rose is the primary thread that holds the team together. Team becomes less effective when he's out (due to injury).
