Queue lots of compo-faced Scousers crying on TV. Utterly hilarious.

Fingers crossed Madrid only win by 8 or 9 tonight.

I think we are all quiet Madrid fans for a day. It's sad really as there isn't a more plastic club financially doped by a government than Madrid but then there aren't more unbearable fans than Liverpool in our lives at this point in time. It is a lesser of two evils.

I'm going with Madrid 3-1. They'll dominate possession and Liverpool's back four will afford them too many chances. Liverpool have the front 4 and will try and hit on the break but will ultimately be suffocated by the quality and lack of ball.

Worse than Gerrard's slip.

Cup finals are won and lost on massive cock ups year in year out.

When did Karius sign for Madrid?

Mignolet would've done the same though. With any luck that will push us to get a new keeper. 3-1 down now may as well have someone go in on Ramos' knee and end his World Cup chances.

Hope you had a few quid on that.

And Ronaldo. He’s been shite tonight though.

Bale’s first was special.

Happy for Bale, but probably mean we will spend even more to sign him this summer!

We won’t buy him. We have Rashford.

Well Liverpool may have been very very lucky to get to the final but they put up a good fight til Salah went off and looked the better team early doors but Karius makes Clownio look competent.

Haha, great! Can't we just flog him to Arsenal or some other mid table team.

Bale sounds like he will definitely be going this summer.

Real Madrid win the Champions League yet again, but finish a whopping 17 points behind Barca in the league!

Is that the biggest difference for a Champions League winner and how far they are behind the 1st team in the league?

Not even close, we finished 5th in 2005 37 points behind Chelsea.

Wow. 17 points is still a massive difference! But 37 points is ridiculous. I still can't believe that Liverpool team won! lol

It just feels like yesterday, when the British press were calling him Luca Moderate!

Also, at one point, I think there were 5 former Southampton players on the pitch!

According to some on this forum he's a passenger and Ian Rush and Mark Hughes were better..........no names need to be mentioned. Today I've settled all family business.
