    that wasn't too shabby at all - i've certainly seen worse champions league finals



    injury dramas, 2 incredible goalkeeping errors, an even more incredible goal (1 of the best you're ever likely to see) .....

    the referee kept it moving well and the football wasn't cagey and defensive, even if madrid did try to keep the tempo down here and there

    both ronaldo and bale dropped huge hints they would be leaving the spanish club in their post match interviews

    for liverpool, the whole thing ended on a sour note - having seen their keeper gift madrid 2 goals with outlandish mistakes, not a single red approached the keeper at the end to console him - many of the madrid players did - but, despite the words of liverpool's unofficial anthem, the reds left their keeper walking alone

    some awful reactions following the keeper's display in the final from his own (alleged) fans

    there have, of course, been several threats made against his life, but also threats against his partner and hopes expressed that his young son contract awful diseases

    obviously, these things have been posted in the heat of the moment, and clearly do not represent the majority, but still .....

    what a classless bunch of fans - i'm glad they lost



    i doubt this guy will play for liverpool again and it will be to his benefit to pitch up somewhere else as soon as he's able

    germany are always crap in the pre-wc friendlies - it's like they deliberately do it to get all the crappy out of their system

    expect great things

    it's what the tournament needed - the host nation is always more of a joy to visit while the home crowd is in a bouyant mood

    a russian win (and maybe even making it out of the group successfully) will see smiles abound on the ground
