Oh well, season over.

At least I have plenty of ammunition with which to attack the United fans in the brief period between now and the nightmare week when Chelsea and Spurs pick up the two European trophies. smiley - grr

After all, they finished exactly as close to relegated Cardiff as they did to the title winners; 34 points difference to both of them. smiley - laugh

They're the only big six team who don't have a major final to look forward to. smiley - laugh

And their newly appointed manager turns out to be utterly useless. smiley - laugh

So, at least there's some mild consolation amidst the utter nightmare that's happening. smiley - sadface

True Jack, for now at least Man Utd have it worse than us. Hopefully their season will start in July also.

I don't think I could ever forgive Liverpool if they lose this one.

There's no let up from the Gods, Mac.

We can't bring one of our players to Baku for political reasons.

So they're letting us know in advance what the outcome will be. After all, when one team is allowed to bring its full squad and the other can't, we know it's not a level playing field from the start. smiley - grr

Thanks UEFA. smiley - grr

Is it too late for Mkhitaryan to change his nationality for the night?

Just make up a country.

Also it seems half the allocation of the supporters are going which was a pitiful amount to begin with.

I know, Mac. smiley - sadface

The worst week in the history of the entire universe has arrived. smiley - sadface

We know what's going to happen. And, to be honest, I have no words to describe it.

I think the worst thing is that the United fans are ttrating me eith pity.

Treating me with pity, even.

Stoopid phone. smiley - grr

Jack, Hazard is leaving, Sarri is leaving, Kante might be out, Chelsea players are having bust-up.

I think it's obvious who is winning the final.

The team that didn't win either of its semi-final legs. smiley - grr

Dominant early on but didn't score. That's always a sign we're going to get stuffed.

Jack, what a disaster.

It's certain to happen, Mac. The Gods have obviously decided that the worst possible things will happen this season. We get destroyed in a European final by Chelsea. Then the Gods start thinking about how to top that.... and I think we know the answer. smiley - sadface

I'm just wondering how to avoid it. Go to a movie perhaps. Then leave dreading the moment I switch my phone back on?

Maybe I'll never switch it on again. smiley - grr

Jack my suggestion would be to watch the uncut Lord of The Rings trilogy on a continual loop. Not because of how good it is but just how much time will be taken up.

Also I don't know how we could forgive Liverpool if they lose.

Jurgen Klopp will go straight to hell if Liverpool don't win this one. smiley - grr

They just finished 26 points ahead of Spurs. The two teams aren't even remotely on the same planet. There is no reason in the world to think that Spurs will win. smiley - erm

But they will win, won't they? smiley - sadface

The Gods have decreed it. They've been rubbish throughout the entire tournament and they've ended up in the final. Remember at the start of the season when we were laughing at the way Messi outclassed Spurs virtually on his own? And remember how they were totally outplayed by Ajax in both legs of the semi-final? They have been every bit as bad in this season's tournament as Chelsea were in 2011/12. And we know how that finished. smiley - sadface

It defies all logic but the Gods don't do logic. Spurs are going to win and I am going to have to stay in bed for the rest of my life with the curtains drawn. I think that's the only option.

What did we do to deserve this, Mac? smiley - sadface

Jose Antonio Reyes has died in a car crash. One of the Invincibles has gone.

He probably never fully settled in London but there was no denying his ability. Very impressive collection of medals too. But he won't ever be able to look back fondly on his career. Very sad. smiley - sadface

Yes terrible new Jack. He, like Arshavin started brilliant but ultimately faded when the only tactic available to players was to kick them off the pitch.

Didn't seem right to talk about the football in the same post:

Tottenham Hotspur. smiley - laugh

That 20 seconds they held out for will be committed to DVD soon enough.

For twenty seconds they were joint Champions of Europe. Then it went hilariously wrong.

It's very amusing to note that the greatest 20 seconds in Spurs' history involved them hardly getting a kick of the ball, Harry Kane getting bullied by Van Dijk and a calamitous handball that destroyed their hopes. smiley - laugh

We shouldn't have been worried, Mac. Spurs can be relied upon to finish every season trophyless. smiley - laughsmiley - laugh

They took the anxiety of watching that match away almost instantly.

It was very kind of them. We had the gall to keep them guessing until the 84th minute in 2006.
