Even before a ball has been kicked in the group stage we have won the Champions League!

Superstars Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo et al failed to cut the mustard when it came to their club websites.

Instead, leading web consultants from Spain came to the conclusion that is the rightful King of Europe.

All the sites of the Uefa Champions League contenders were measured and marked for purpose, URL friendliness, usability, look and feel, taglines, quality of writing, structure, navigation, layout, and multimedia.

Amongst the early casualties with scores ranging from a defensively leaky 29ts to a mid-table 61points were  Bate, Dortmund, Inter, Chelsea, Real Madrid, and Bayern.

The opening round reduced the possible winners to sixteen and everyone clearly wanted to avoid City

Genk, Napoli, Lille, United, Porto, Milan, Lyon and Basil were the heavyweight second round casualties leaving just eight sides battling for the crown.

One of the big favourites Barcelona bit the dust in the quarter finals and were joined on the sidelines by Ajax, Valencia, and Shakhtar Donetsk.

England by now expected:  City and Arsenal were through to the last four with Dinamo Zagreb from Croatia and Romania’s Otelul Galati.

Tension was high as the points totals were revealed. Zagreb were first to go with 85pts and the Gunners then ran out of ammo with a highly respectable 88pts.

So to the decider and Galati posted a fantastic 91 points only to be piped by City’s final rating of 92pts.

‘The website of Manchester City is the rightful winner of this competition,’ read the citation.

So there you are Roberto; we have won the Champions League and now it is up to you and the team to make it a double -no pressure then!
