Generally speaking a repeat of domestic league games in CL, Europa don't excite me much. That's basically the main reason I would call this boring or awful.

Yeah I am also not that happy with the final. Liverpool facing easier teams like Ajax and Barça at the final would be way better.

The only all-country finals I remember being any good are the 2008 CL final between United and Chelsea and the 2007 UEFA Cup final between Espanyol and Sevilla.

I have zero recollection of Porto vs Braga, Atletico vs Bilbao and Bayern vs Dortmund for some reason.

Had inter not bottled it vs. PSV, Mr. Pochettino wouldn't be hailed the genius he is right now.

Personally I rate him highly, his squad has its limitations, and it's quite remarkable they got this far.

I can't stand either side, but I guess I'm rooting for Tottenham to win the damn thing.

Don't lament the treachery of time;

Don't suppose that their dancing raises them above their masters;
for dogs remain dogs, and lions remain lions.

Insult me as you wish;
For my silence to the depraved is a response.

It's not that I have no response, but;
A lion does not reply to a dog.

Something similar could be said about most finalist. Had Inter had a good side, they wouldn’t have bottled it against PSV. That was no coincidence. They had their share of luck in the first couple of matches but eventually their bluff would be called.

my expectations were pretty low, but still...

I don't remember ever seeing such a boring CL final

Big games are easy than the other games, unfortunately. Every times we have the control the games, under the control the games, during the games we had the some possibilities, some big chances, some big okazyons, something like that but what can I do, sometimes? And….it’s the football, that’s the football, something happened. Everything is something happened. - Fatih Terim

I dont think I ever seen such bad passing in highest level before.


Deserved winners, but early handball PK and good individual effort to decide, but other then that, it was snooze fest bad footie from start to finish.

The Milan-Juve final in Old Trafford was pretty bad too, obviously its been a while ago so I still put this one are worse than that, didn't even feel like a final to be honest, as Osman said so many basic mistakes

The thing about the Milan - Juve one was that the rivalry is really really strong and the teams have different claims to being "bigger" (maybe something easy to forget now that Juve dominate so easily) so that gave the game a different kind of intensity.

Liverpool vs. Spurs was better than Milan vs. Juve, the latter had no redeeming qualities, at least the former had a hot streaker.

It had a penalty shootout, so that's something. Granted the penalties were shit, but still...

Didn't the streaker wear clothes by the way? So that should be chalked down as another disappointment in my humble opinion.

Buffon made a pretty awesome save on Pippo Inzaghi, that's about what I remember from Juve v Milan.
