    France vs fucking portugal.

    Presumably France will win. Hard to know whether to support the smug and underwhelming or the arrogant and lucky.

    That final was terrible, but the human drama was engrossing. Who knew Ronaldo could end up being a sympathetic character who looked like he actually cares about something beyond himself. I thought he played a blinder from the bench, I have to say. Pity Griezmann didn't show up, as he's a fantastic player. Sissoko gave an awe-inspiring performance, especially in the first half, can feel aggrieved his teammates were mediocre at best.

    International football is awful in general though. Italy-Spain, Germany-Italy, France-Germany (to a lesser extent, as Germany were on a different level to the French, and lost god knows how) and Wales-Belgium seemed like islands of exquisite drama in a sea of cheap telenovelas. And I love a good telenovela....but it's not proper sustenance.

    it's about #5968758 on the list of mad things that have happened recently, but the prospect of a 100m bid for Pogba from Man U? Very good player no doubt, but clearly from the Euros not yet in the ranks of the truly great. Crazy money. Jose's budget looks pretty solid anyways.

    Even I'm enjoying this. They have to give Bale a crack in his home town, surely?

    Oh well, good game at least for an hour. Would have been nice for Buffon to score the Champions League title.

    Wtf happened to Juventus? They started so well. Defending was static for some of the goals too.

    Ronaldo's been absolutely outstanding in 2016-17, the biggest star by far... but he's not the eternal big-game player they were all crowing about after the final whistle - last CL final he was made to look mediocre. Real have such quality all through the team though, that they can carry Ronaldo when he doesn't turn up. Modric, Kroos, Casemiro, Isco, Marcelo, Ramos....jeez. With Bale fully fit, they're frightening.

    They'll still probably sack Zidane next season.

    Even if you don't like him you gotta concede Ronaldo is in his prime.
