Monthly Power Rankings October 2013


11 (First) – 20 (Last): PSG, Real Madrid, Chelsea, Manchester City, Monaco, Tottenham Hotspur, Porto, Everton, Manchester United, Shakhtar Donetsk

10 – Internazionale

Walter Mazzarri has brought some of his wonderful management skills to the San Siro building a solid team that could challenge for Champions’ League places. Unfortunately for Inter, there are three teams above them who are playing unbelievably well.

9 – Napoli

Napoli Cavani

Rafa has worked wonders with Cavani’s transfer fee, building the best Napoli side since Diego graced the San Paolo.

8 – Liverpool

A very complete side who all work extremely hard for each other. Brendan Rodgers has built a fantastic squad with great depth and if they can keep Suarez on the straight and narrow the only way is up for the Reds.

7 – Juventus


It feels wrong to have Juve so low yet I could have placed them below Napoli and Liverpool. Their team is still gelling but come May I think we may be looking at the surprise Champions’ League winners here.

6 – Borrussia Dortmund


Mario who? Dortmund are going from strength to strength with their new look side since the depature of talismanic Gotze. On current form there is no reason why they shouldn’t be able to challenge for the Bundesliga and the Champions’ League.

5 – AS Roma

Rudi Garcia has turned this team around though it’ll be interesting to see how well they do against Inter this weekend. They have the best attack and best defence in Italy. Totti is clearly the best player in the world (over the age of 36).

4 – Arsenal

Signing German superstar Mesut Ozil has pushed Arsenal through the stratosphere. They are wonderful to watch and with Ramsey playing as well as any player in the world, it is hard to see them slowing down. There are still worries about their squad depth but their first team might be the best in England.

3 – Barcelona

Lionel Messi

Messi and Neymar are looking better and better together, even Sanchez and Song are starting to play well! Don’t worry I couldn’t believe it either.

2 – Atletico Madrid

Wow, Simeone continues to work wonders. Their first win at Real in the league since the beginning of time went down particularly well with their supporters. Diego Costa is playing on fire whilst Koke could push to start for Spain in Brazil!

1 – Bayern Munich


Pep’s team looked absolutely dominant against Manchester City and level on points with Dortmund, they should be able to pull away. I will be the first to admit I had my doubts but perhaps Guardiola is going to have a positive impact. They are so strong in midfield, both physically and technically that they can play in any style. Just great fun to watch.
