Worlds most expensive player? Because overpaying for an overrated primadonna is how you gain prestige and somehow excuses them from a 'losing record' in this competition unlike Roma. Yeah right. Roma haven't won much, that is true, but what they have been is a consistent presence on the European scene and for that they have a prestige and respect that is reflected in their strong passionate support second only to Anfield on a European night (or in your case probably the Bernabeu). Our own encounters with them at the start of the century and in 84 (when PSG were 14 years old) proves that. To group them in with PSG however much you wish to would be inaccurate at best. And that's not 'poetry' - that's just fact. And no, PSG don't pose a tougher challenge as proven by the fact that Roma have actually beaten class teams in Europe (including Barcelona) this season unlike PSG.
Going back and saying 'but I said that about Madrid in 2014 and Uruguay in 2010' doesn't justify what you were trying to do which was use us as a belittling argument to strengthen your love in for Madrid. You can argue about their greatness and put them up there with Sacchi's Milan and Guardiola's Barca (regardless of how ridiculous that is) but I fail to see how that helps your argument by pouring water over the efforts of others because of an 'easy draw' that just made a fleeting reference to a 'difficult' quarter final tie, forgetting that this difficult team were the most dominant and best side out of the top European leagues this season.
We're on the verge of Kiev because we deserve to be and if there's any team that deserves to be in the final above everyone else it's us because we've been the best team in this competition so far. That, I am certain of. Any rival fan narrative of 'lucky draws' that you may buy into will not puncture any holes in that belief. Even more so when in the wider context this club has got to this point in European competition without the financial dominance/doping of throwing out hundreds of millions like most of our fellow competitors during these late stages.
But if you think Real deserve greater credit - hey be my guest. I suppose there is an audience for the great art of cowardly acting, fraudulent refereeing calls and stumbling, incoherent displays at home ahead of the synchronised, destructive, red arrow attacks of Liverpool.
This is ridiculous, I never compared this current Real Madrid side to Sacchi's Milan and Guardiola's Barca, that's entirely out of your own head. I just said I think the idea of a team that makes the European Cup final 4 out of 5 seasons not being a "great" one because of their manners is of a level of bitterness akin to that of an Everton fan. That you bring up Sacchi's or Guardiola's sides as a comparison to greatness seems to suggest that you think only teams particularly pleasing in the eye, or that have been tactically innovative can be considered great. In that case I wonder whether you consider LFC of the late 70's to be a great side, because it would fail the FMS greatness test.
As for the Roma vs PSG comparison, you might feel the need to go over 3 decades back in time to justify the argument, but just ask yourself this basic question: which club do you think fans of any European club would prefer to play against on a Champions League knockout round? If you can seriously answer that question as "PSG" then you're just completely deluded. If given the choice of facing PSG or Roma, most fans and perhaps managers would prefer to face Roma. That's because unless you're seriously invested in pretending Roma are much greater than they are, then it should be obvious that PSG have a stronger squad in pretty much every single department apart from goalkeeper. Anyhow, if you're going to use history as a stick to beat PSG, then shall I remind you of Manchester City's record in the competition?
I can do without your digs about my "love" for Real Madrid or the Bernabeu. But if you wanna go down that route, I can give you more basic facts which might not exactly suit your narrative: Roma can't even sell out their stadium, have about 50% occupancy rate and their home record is worse than their away record this season. Just a couple of seasons ago they were beaten 7-1 at that very stadium where supposedly their "passionate" support make such a difference, and just last season were knocked out with a 3-0 defeat at that mythical Stadio Olimpico where they have won absolutely nothing courtesy of world beaters FC Porto. Your quite obvious sympathy for Roma don't make them better than they are, nor feared, nor prestigious.
For the record: PSG have beaten Bayern 3-0, which gets them on a pair with Roma for number of wins against top teams. Oh wait, I forgot you're bigging up that Europa League bound team from London in order to suit the narrative as well.
Anyway, the two discussions - about luck in draws and the quality of the Real Madrid side - have been mixed up but for me were always separate. I've spoken about our luck before in other threads and only today have commented about Real Madrid. That you can see a grand narrative here is on you, seriously.
It seems to me that you worry too much about what rivals might say about our "luck" and then gets easily stung if anyone suggests as much. I couldn't care less. I thought Man Utd were extremely lucky last season on their Europa League run as well, but I'm pretty sure they didn't give a f**k about my opinion when they won the trophy.
To sum it up: yes, we had luck in the draws. Yes, I do think Real Madrid have a great team, otherwise they wouldn't have won 3 out of 4, and that putting it all down to "cheating" is frankly childish. Finally, yes, Roma are a nothing special team.
As a final comment: funnily enough, PSG have a winning record in the Champions League. P88, W46, D19, L23 (as of 2016-17 season). Roma, meanwhile, have P102, W36, D27, L39.
And PSG have an actual European trophy as well (the Cup Winners' Cup), not that rubbish cup to promote trade fairs.
