I was rooting for Liverpool, of course. They lost their sparkle when Salah, then Karius lost his mind. In between, Bale added a nought to his value.
I have a few questions:
Did Ramos mean to take Salah out? The experts in the studio were non-committal but I think he pulled him deliberately to the floor.
What has Karius thinking? I’m pretty sure he could actually see a big bloke in all-white.
How did Bale score that overhead? Is it the best goal ever in a Champions League final?
Was Karius’s vision blurred by hot, salty tears for Bale’s second? It’s as though he thought it was going to swerve to his right but it kept almost straight.
Isn’t Modric a great, great player?
Doesn’t Karius deserve credit for apologising to the fans at the end, instead of running off down the tunnel?
Klopp didn’t comfort him at the end. Does that mean he is out?
Who says Zidane can’t manage?
Why did Marcello take a piece of the net? Where’s he going to put it?
Are Liverpool going to win anything next season?
Will Salah be fit for the World Cup?
When did Joey Barton become an expert?
Are there any more droning, monotone, boring voices than Gerrard, Lampard and Ferdinand?
Shouldn’t this match be on terrestrial TV?
Most importantly of all; did Ronaldo get his hair done at half-time?
