Man, imagine if Spurs win the final. Liverpool coming away empty-handed after this season would be heartbreaking for them.

Thanks Man City, Wolves are off to Europe in their first year back in the premiership! Amazing turn around, we were 2 divisions down 4-5 years ago.

Things are almost over in French Ligue 1, with European qualifications over.

Champions League : Paris St Germain - Lille - Lyon (still waiting for Europa League Final, if Chelsea wins, Lyon goes directly to group stage but I want Arsenal to win...)
Europa League : Strasbourg - Rennes - Saint Etienne

Relegation race is not over, but Monaco is almost saved. They had to wait 37 games...

Imagine getting rid of Giroud only to see him trashing you while becoming the top scorer.

He's basically man of the tournament with 11 goals and 4 assists.

River Plate won the Recopa! 10th trophy for Gallardo as a manager, he's our record manager now (Ramón Díaz was the previous, with 9)

Also, this perfect man scored:

that was easily one of the most boring finals I've watched in years as a neutral.

bummer since the tournament in general was so excellent.

It was time for Hazard to move on either way. He is extremely talented, but also a player that would never truly fullfil his potential at Chelsea imo, and something tells me he wont at Madrid either. Doesnt have the right mindset to become as good as his talent warrants.

Chelsea being transfer banned could be a bit of a blessing. Lots of loan players can come back, and maybe actually get a chance. Especially if the rumors of Lampard are true, I am sure we will see Mason Mount get some time. Reece James also looks very promising, although his injury the other day looked bad. Then there is Michy and Tammy Abraham who will bre more than good enough to replace Piguain.

Hazard is plenty good for what he is, but he’s certainly not going to be Madrid’s next Ronaldo or Messi. Which seems to be what some fans expect.

Even if the loan army comes home next year, I doubt it’ll lead to a lasting change. As soon as any ban ends, I’m almost certain any youth movement would be aborted instantly. As long as Roman is owner and in “win-now” mode, we’re not going to spend significant time building youth. And Lamps if he gets hired will be gone in two years anyways.

Which is fine, but it is what it is.

The popular app -- used by over four million in Spain for displaying game results -- was found to be tapping into the location data and microphones of users to find bars that were illegally broadcasting games.
That's some Black Mirror shit

Fox Sports is retransmitting the CL final, imagine going through that voluntarily again.
