Gamba Better than Villa?

Here's a bit of light reading for J.League fans ahead of the start of the new season later today. the IFFHS (International Federation of Football History and Statistics) Club World Rankings. There are some weird choices, like Grampus (138) being ranked higher than champions Antlers (147), but it is still interesting to see how Japanese teams are ranked.

The top J.League ranking goes to Gamba Osaka, due to their progress in the Club World Cup. This places them above Premier League teams such as Tottenham Hotspur (122) and Aston Villa (135); a ranking that is likely to cause consternations in the Funky Gibson household.:-)

There is a Japanese article about the these rankings in Shigoto no Kikaku, but the rankings themselves are only available in European languages.
