Here comes Bale, I reckon he'll rip the Juventus defense to pieces. They look ragged.
Oh cool, you went to Wrestlemania.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
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 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
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.
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.Buffons face at the end though, holy shit.

You really need a better midfield than what you currently have.Shame, shame, shame. It's not acceptable to play the seconf 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.
