Anyways, this game yesterday was full of mistakes, mindless fast-paced game, but it is not much worst or better than last year, which also had several mistakes that we do not expect to find in a supposed high level competition. But then, maybe the level of CL is just not that high as people dream while compared to other years.

When Sheva put the ball in the back of the net, I think Milan were trying to win the game.

FT today:

This has been evident in the Champions League over the past decade. Eight of the past 10 titles have been won by either Spain’s FC Barcelona and Real Madrid or Germany’s Bayern Munich. The trio have been regularly among the world’s richest five clubs over that period, using this wealth to invest heavily in their teams.

English clubs are not paupers. Premier League sides share in multiyear broadcasting deals worth more than Ł9bn, higher than any other domestic league on the planet. This has ensured their revenues have kept pace with the biggest teams in Europe. Six English teams, including Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur, are among the world’s top 10 highest earning clubs.

Still, by the standards of others, this year’s Champions League finalists are frugal. FC Barcelona spent €562m in player wages last season, according to KPMG Football Benchmark, a research division within the consultancy. This compares to just €297m spent by Liverpool and a measly €167m by Tottenham Hotspur.

I think everyone knew there would be a skanky winner this year due to how shit the field was this year, so it's no surprise really.

Top 5 shit CL winners:

1. Liverpool 2005
2. Porto 2004
3. Chelsea 2012
4. Milan 2007
5. Liverpool 2019

I mean they were poor in the groups, where they lost numerous times and were a shot away from being knocked out.

Beat some old fart Bayern team who thought it was still 2013, Porto and lost 3-0 in a semi-final 1st leg lol ffs.

And played like some muppets in the final.

Good Lord.

The idiot is not even from Liverpool and has the lowest contribution of a captain to a team in EPL...

To be fair, they were fantastic in the league, and with their points haul it was ridiculous they didn't end up taking it when you compare to past seasons. Some would say It's justice that they end up with a trophy.

No doubt.

Great season from them to juggle both comps.
