Fulhams fantastic result against Juventus was a great example of why soccer is the most exciting game in the world.

Or Arjen Robben's wonder goal against Fiorentina just when it looked like Bayern Munich might be eliminated.

So here's a question: which former European/domestic giant has fallen further, Liverpool or Juventus?

Juventus, no question about that. Match fixing scandal, relegation to Serie B a few years ago, corrupted president...and the list goes on.
But, I wouldn't mind if L'pool follows their steps .

It's got to be Juventus, no doubt about it.

However, Juve is 1 point away from a top 4 finish and a CL place for next season. Liverpool are a 1 point behind Spurs (who are 4th) having played a game more, and 1 pt ahead of Man City having played 2 games more.

And you only took into consideration the current standing to decide who's fallen further?

Albion, they won their last (second overall) CL in 1995-1996 when they beat Ajax on penalties.
They also lost two straight CL finals in 1996-97 and 1997-98 to Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid respectively, when they were absolute favorites.
Since then, they played in one more CL final at Old Trafford in 2002-03 when they lost to AC Milan on penalties.
