Sergio Ramos is an absolute waste of air. Wanker of the highest order.

My hatred for Real knows no bounds. Fucking tossers the lot of em. Not one remotely likeable player.

Devastated for Gigi Buffon

This is a special side. Juve are a team who don't concede goals - having only conceded 3 on their way to the final - but Madrid could have run riot in that second half. Fair play to Zidane.

Real Madrid were comfortable for the entirety of the second half. Juventus were out done all ends up. Dybala was very poor. As for Real, don't think there was a bad player for them as such, Ronaldo, Isco, Kroos, Modric, Marcelo, Ramos (apart from the diving incident) and Varane were all exceptional. Zinedine Zidane will be a managerial legend in 5 years, if he isn't one already.

I'm pretty surprised in the fact that I don't think I actually mentioned this at all on here leading into the final tonight, but I actually scored tickets to this game (I had better tag Stevencc because he loves hearing about me going to this sort of thing).

Now bare in mind, my experience of live football matches isn't exactly the most exciting, as you'd sort of expect with me being an Argyle fan. Prior to this, my experience was:
A bunch of games at Home Park, obviously.
One single away game at Ashton Gate years ago.
The league 2 playoff final last year.
Of all random things, a game at Yankee Stadium between New York City FC and LA Galaxy last year.

So while I saw some big names in that last game, yeah, pretty fucking low profile... so to say this was a jump up in quality/occasion was an understatement :lol:

What a fucking brilliant day. I had to go to Wales, which was obviously a shame, but to be fair I barely heard a welsh accent all day (no more than I do living in Bristol now... did I mention I live in Bristol now, BTW? I guess that's a story for another day, whatever) as it was mostly over run with Italians (honestly, like 10 to every one Real fan, and they were fucking passionate as fuck about all this shit). It reminded me of my Wrestlemania trips, the city was completely over run by the occasion.

And honestly, I probably enjoyed it as much as my WM days as well. Probably helped that it was a great match, too. And that I got to see that amazing overhead kick live :eek: I was sat right in the heart of the Juve fans so kind of felt myself feeling a little biased toward them, as you do :lol:

Buffons face at the end though, holy shit. I'm not one who'd think myself capable of a pitch invasion, but I thought about it just so that I could run on and give him a hug. Genuinely never seen anybody look so down after a game of football.

Allegri needs to take a lot of flack for this. Juventus played out of their skins in the first hal and were knackered in the second. What kind of strategy is that? Did Allegri think that with some attacking intent his side would be 3-0 up after a half hour and then sit back and rely on Buffon's wondersaves? Very risk for a final if so.
It didn't help that Buffon didn't perform (the 2nd and 3rd goals should have been saved/blocked) of course but I feel like Allegri handed the trophy to Zidane on a plate.

Ramos is a fucking diving cheat ponce c***.

Totally ruins the image of Real Madrid. Guadrado should of kicked his fucking head in when he was down rolling round like a nancy c***.

It's not just Madrid it's Barcelona who do this shit as well, then people praise them so much for how great they are, well fuck off you c*** do you not see this cheating? I'm glad we are going to punish fake simulation over here but they will still allow it over there.

Shame, shame, shame. It's not acceptable to play the second half of a Champions League's final in such an awful way. I'm sad for our captain who really deserved this trophy, even if he has his own fault for yesterday's debalce, just like the rest of the team.
Forza Juve.

He is (and always will be) a great sportsman . Another bitter final loss for him and the chances to get another one are dwindling every year but again in this bitter hour for him and his beloved Juve he has the greatness to congratulate again with some kind of smile to his opponents (although he rather want to cry). I love this man for his sportsmanship.

At least he's won the ultimate trophy in World football, the World Cup in 2006. A trophy that CR7 will never get ;)

to the final itself only this: Sergio Ramos is a piece of shit and congratulations to Toni Kroos.

Forza Juve.
You really need a better midfield than what you currently have.

I agree and that's ironical because two years ago the midfield was our strongest point, while now it seems to be the weak link. That's what happens when you lose Pirlo, Vidal and Pogba without replacing them properly.

A big shame Juventus didn't win, clearly they weren't playing at their best, but I managed to win tickets and the chance to go pitchside pre- and post-match to take photos which made an exciting day even better.
