1-0

2. Our U17 team is better.
Really??;)

3. Our U21 team is better.
Simple. Our U21 players play for the senior team...

4. Our new stadiums will be better than their new stadiums
Wait and see...

5. Our Champion has a budget of 30 mio. CFR while their champ has 15 mio. € debts.
Yes, but our next champion will have a budget of 30 mio....EURO..:)

6. Our league has a higher attendance.
Only due to Basel, but I would like to see official Swiss numbers compared to official Austrian numbers. The result might surprise...

7. Our last humiliation was only 1:3 while theirs was 2:6
Look at point 3. Did I already mention Krankl...?

8. No sponsors in team names (Ex. Puntigamer Sturm Graz)
Another point for you...

9. Our teams would never hire Lothar Matthäus.
Don't blame the other clubs..:)

10. Did I alreday mention the 6-2 scalping?
Which game??:rolleyes:

hmm i don't really have enough info on the situation of the two countries to take sides but will highlight a few points none the less :)

:dielaugh: :howler:. Perhaps a friendly should be organised between Austria and Swiss U-21. I know where i'd put my money


5. Our Champion has a budget of 30 mio. CFR while their champ has 15 mio. € debts.

Are you suggesting that this would be Austria Vienna ;)

6. Our league has a higher attendance.

You should always compare the attendences to the size of the stadiums or else the results will be invalid :neutral:


7. Our last humiliation was only 1:3 while theirs was 2:6

I'd have to give a draw here. Austria were obviously playing better opposition but 6-2 is unacceptable nonetheless


9. Our teams would never hire Lothar Matthäus.

Can't believe any club from either nation would be dumb enough to sign this egocentric Kraut----especially since he's linked with FC-Arrogance(masters of route one boring football :yuck: )

:dielaugh:.
Additional:
Switzerland has much better foreign players:
True - The top few clubs in Switzerland sigh quality players from places like Argentina (e.g Giminez, that dude on loan with GCZ), Nigeria (Oruma-just moved to France) i.e countries with a high level of technical skill whereas teams like FK Austria crow on about how they have signed players like Rushfeldt :tongue: (not that i'm saying he's a bad player or anything but outstanding skill and flair doesn't come into my head when i hear his name

Swiss teams perform much better in europe;
Hard to say. Swiss teams have outperformed the Austrians in the UEFA cup by a country mile in recent years but Austria was the last team to have a team in the CL (Strum Graz) and they have had a team in the final of a major european clb tournament (Salzburg in 1994).

Having said that i don't think there has been a team in Switzerland (or most other countries for that matter) that have embarassed themselves like Sturm have done in the CL :eek: :D :tongue:. Getting hit for 6 goals twice by real madrid in 1997/98 (or was it 98/99) and then copping no less than THREE (3) 5-0 defeats in the 2000-2001 CL (Rangers [nothing special], Monaco[who are they-didn't they almost get relegated from La Championnat] and Valencia[ok they are good but they hardly scored any goals under Cuper that season] )

Overall i think Austria edge it but the Swiss have their dignity in tact :D :)

BTW to check out the Uefa coefficients and related info, this link is excellent. Unfortunately (from a Swiss POV) Austria are ahead at the moment byt the trend is upwards for the Swiss and the other way for the Austrians :)

Well Andreas, concerning the foreigners - quite even.
Rushfeldt is pure class as Japan had to notice..:).
And FAK already signed Thorstein Helstad..:)
Then we have Janocko, Tokic, Bazina, Lawaree, Hota, Hasek, Kusi-Asare, Ratajczyk, L. Maier, Tchertchessov, Ceh, Pavlovic, Rojas, Adamski, Brzeczek, Anfang and quite a few other very good foreigners in our league. Some of these will be transferred to bigger leagues, though....

Different teams - different problems. I am a 100% sure that our U21 would've beaten Canada.

4. Our new stadiums will be better than their new stadiums
Wait and see...

Let's have a look, shall we: http://www.austria.switzerland-euro2008.com/showtopic.php?topic=25&slang=_e

While your stadiums are nice, the Pentagon gives us the edge in design.


5. Our Champion has a budget of 30 mio. CFR while their champ has 15 mio. € debts.

Really? I must have missed this. Which club would this be?
