Are the Reds better than the Blues?

When you look at the big clubs and their illustrious history, is it fair to say that the Red side of the cities are by far and away better than the Blue?

To start with in Manchester we have United and City. One club rich in silverware, the other throwing money here there and everywhere to try and catch up. 20 League titles, 3 Champions leagues amongst numerous other Domestic and European silverware compared with 5 league titles and a few other dribs and drabs here and there.

Then we have Liverpool, who whilst only having 18 league titles, still double that achieved by their neighbours, Everton. The Blues however do have 2 Full Members Cup's to Liverpools 0 which surprised me somewhat as I've always thought of the Reds as members.

Moving down to London and whilst looking a shadow of their former selves, Arsenal still boast 13 leagues titles to Chelsea's 6 and Tottenham's 2. The reds also hold more domestic silverware than their counterparts. Arsenal also have the best you tube channel going.

So in summary, are the Reds better than the Blues? Or is a better question, how much better are the Reds than the Blues?

Nope, but Real Madrid wouldnt have won the CL once without money either, or Franco’s goodwill.

Very true, and the fact Franco stopped the best players going to Barca

Essentially I am perfectly prepared to admit the beautiful game isnt very pretty when you look at how elite clubs fund themselves. I even accept Abramovich for all his goodwill has a pretty shady past and we wouldnt be an elite club without his money (although we also needed great managemet, scouting, strategies etc). I dont see however, why this is any different to any other elite club, including the supposedly saintly sides like Liverpool.

Not our fault Levy is tight and Kroenke is focused on bigger and better things

Just remember where you'd be without your money
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Well we qualified for the CL in 2003 and won five trophies in five years without his money so...

Not the league or champions league though

If you say "I'm feeling blue", it's generally not a nice feeling. Therefore Red has to be better.

I mean that’s a bit flimsy as there is no comparison. What would “I’m feeling red” even mean? Angry? Horny? Communist? Not sure any of those are particularly endearing.

Pride’s on the blob.
