So is most of Europe in financial crisis. Real Madrid and Barca can survive easily on their income.

Survive =/= Dominate

Germany is not in financial crisis. Bayern will now go on a 5 year run of dominance

Whatever. Bayern will do well. But Dortmund have to sell Lewndowski and Gotze. Barca are linked to Hummels, so that could be three of their best gone already. Barca and Real are the richest football clubs on EARTH don't you get that. Football clubs are nearly immune from the countries financial status. Get real, just because Bayern done Barca this year doesn't mean they'll dominate, even Barca in their prime never dominated for 5 years haha. You are making blanket statements without any real football knowledge now pipe down.

Bayern will not dominate European football unless they win the thing. They have lost 3 of the last 4 finals. They will be the ultimate bottlers of European football if they don't win it this time.

Barcelona are not done. They win it next year, what then? Their dominance is not over.

Next five European Cup winners:
Dortmund 2013
Barcelona 2014
Liverpool 2015
Liverpool 2016
Liverpool 2017

Me obviously being the captain and lifting the trophy for Liverpool Brian

Says the guy with no prior knowledge of Barcelona finances.

We will see if Barca brings in Hummels, because if they don't.....they will remain below Bayern etc

This is their 3rd Final in 4 years. They haven't played/lost yet

Barcelona needs a defense first. As of now they don't have one. As of now Bayern 7-0 them.

I think they will lose this final. That will be 3 of their last 4 and 3 in 4 years.

Barcelona will sort out their defensive errors in the summer. The money is there for them to do it. Hummels will be a done deal I think. If that deal doesn't go through then Agger will be their target. Any two of them would be great signings for them.

It would be the same with any team if they had Messi. Having the best player to ever live is a bonus, not a flaw.

Well at least now we know where you are getting your bias view from

Zidane > (BRA) Ronaldo > Messi > (POR) Ronaldo

And the gap between Messi and Cristiano is smaller than the gap between Brazilian Ronaldo and Messi.
