Sadly Real Madrid can't compete with big-spending clubs like Liverpool.
As a funny aside. I went completely bonkers with my anti jinxy vibe. So did my wife and son. We moved all the furniture around just so it wasn't the same as last year. My lad wore a Griffindor scarf while I wore a Sydney Rabbitoh's one (my Oz buddy gave it to me years ago if he promised me he would support the Reds) - I got a text from Oz about 5am saying it was all him but he's so proud that he supports the Redmen! I've had a ton of messages who are very cool stuff and congrats. I've also got about 20 cousins in Madrid whould the vibe was sound and the Spurs fans were graceful in defeat but happy to mingle and be sound.
Hello all from Madrid. Shout out to @rubans @peterhague and @Whirly.
I'm feeling wrecked. But oh so happy!
What a night. The game played out pretty much as I expected it to, in terms of two teams over-familiar with each other being very tactical and frustrating, but we kept going. Becker, Virgil, Matip, Hendo, Milner, Robbo, Trent, Origi. Wow. Heroes all over the pitch. Good substitutions, well-timed. The ref was so ridiculously fussy before the pen I thought it was going to unnerve Mo, but he did it. Moreno made Josemi seem shy and retiring. Great celebrations. Thrilled for Klopp. Six times - wow!
What a fantastic feeling! Made up for Klopp especially, a monkey off his back for sure. I reckon we go bigger and better still now with the confidence this triumph brings.
I've watched the game again. It's even better (how could it not be) knowing that you win!!
*Time for a "what pot are United in" joke*
Some rare humility from Mourinho - “This is more beautiful that what we can say.”
Love that. Love that they know and enjoy our songs as much as we do.
Champions of Europe. Ground spurs down, it’s beautiful to see how strong we are defensively when under pressure. Robbo and taa covered and tracked so many runs and fab was immense

Is anyone else just seeing Linda in leather pants?
Old big ears is home.
Watched the highlights again this morning. We kept them at arms length until about the 80th minute. Even the chances they did have weren't clear cut. Then Big Divock fucked them.
Yeah, watched the extended highlights. Was much better on second viewing.
We didn't play particularly well, certainly not as well as we can do, but we aimed to limit their chances as much as possible & forced them into the areas they aren't dangerous in & did that perfectly.
I said before the match that due to the heat it would probably be a match decided by the defence rather than the attack & it proved to be the case.
TAA was fantastic first half, they targeted him & he worked his arse off to make sure they didn't get past him.
