All happening today.

Highlight must be the Champions League final - 8.00pm tonight.

Liverpool aren't my favourite team but you've got to take your hat off to them these last two seasons - and most start favourites - but I'm going for a Spurs win nevertheless!

Joshua v Ruiz fight is technically tomorrow but for us it is in the middle of the night, tonight (around 3.30am).  I won't be watching it and Joshua is miles in front on the betting to win but I don't think Ruiz is such a push over as thought.

Ruiz lost to Parker and Parker made Joshua look bad but still lost - so I won't be stopping up for this.  Joshua to win though possibly on points.

Last ladies warm up game for their world cup- live on bbc iplayer now if anyone is that bothered.

I don't like women's football, it's simply not as fast, powerful and competitive as the men's game - but plenty seem to think it's great - I won't be watching.

World Cup Cricket - Day 3.

New Zealand already bowled Sri Lanka out, and Australia (featuring the recently banned sandpapergate boys) start out against the very unfancied Afghans.

Hope Afghan wins obviously.

Big cycling day for me - the Tour of Italy (known as the Giro) ends tomorrow and today is the Queen Stage (the name they give the hardest day cycling of a tour) which involved a huge day in the mountains.  

The Tours not gone to plan and some of the bigger names have performed badly so much so that a bit of a surprise package in the shape of an Ecuadorian is looking the likeliest to win right now - I hope he does too!

 On a very sad note though, news is in that former Arsenal player Antonio Reyes, 35, was killed this weekend in a car crash.  RIP.

Looking forward to the champions league final although it’s on at 2am here. 

Hopefully I can keep my eyes open for it. Smile

They aren't even the best team in England this season.

Spurs aren't even in the top three!

They’re the best team in Europe this season.  Lost one game all season in the premier league, and that was against the premier league winners, not really that funny

They are not the best team in England as per the league table.

So by definition they can't be the best team in Europe.

Spurs weren't even in the top three in England yet presumably as runners up to Liverpool tonight, they are considered the second best team in Europe.

Doesn't make sense does it?

All the Champion League games up to the final are played over a 'home' and 'away' leg - yet the final isn't.  If the semi-finals were only played over one leg as well, then Liverpool and Spurs would have been knocked out and the final would have been between Ajax and Barcelona instead!

I'm pleased we had the two finalists and that one of our teams is considered to be the European Champions for the 2018/19 season but in reality neither of the teams are even the best in England.

That's why I stated the famous phrase (that you don't seem to be aware of?) that it is after all - a funny old game!

Liverpool are the best team in Europe and therefore England, the clue is in the name of the competition.

Chorley a close second.

I disagree AD. City have now 'choked' twice on the trot in the Champions League against English opposition. Certainly they are an awesome side but they had no divine right to be in the CL final any more than Real Madrid or Barcelona do. Love them or hate them but Liverpool have now won the competition six times, easily the most successful English side in Europe and behind only Real and Milan in terms of CL victories.

Wimbledon has been shocking this year.

Obviously the women's game is atrocious but that goes without saying.

The men's has been a huge let down though, it's been a piece of piss for the top 3, I don't particularly care which of them wins it.

And the Bolton Ironman on Sunday, I hear the dirty mac brigade enjoy ogling the sweaty cameltoes running round the Town Hall Square.

I expect that Nadal/Federer semi final was the best sport of the weekend

Yeah netball!

I don't get the hype, it simply isn't entertaining to watch.

The women's gold medal team at the Commonwealth games won the BBC Sports Personality Team of the year for 2018 ffs!  What a joke.

I could have mentioned my personal favourite that is happening this weekend and for the next two weeks too - the Tour de France - many big names like Foome and Dumoulin didn't even make it to the start line this year, so Geraint Thomas the man to beat and the most likely for someone to be better than him is his own team mate Egan Bernal.

I'd forgotten all about Amir Khan's joke of a fight tonight which he won easily (reported he got £7m for doing it too) but I should have at least given a shout out to a very anticipated match up of the next generation of British heavyweights between Nathan Gorman (Cheshire) 16 wins out of 16 against Daniel Dubois (London) 11 wins in 11.

I've never seen either of them fight but heard good things about both of them.

Dubois is a over a year younger at 21 and seems to be better fancied but I'll have a punt on Gorman who has that bit more experience in terms of fights and rounds (and is also Tyson Fury's cousin) and if for no other reason, he is the 'northerner of the two!

Should be far more entertaining than flipping netball!


And finally, before we all forget, we also have Bolton Wanderers (the magnificent 6) v York City Sunday afternoon as well!

Don't know if Radio Nuts will be covering it though?

Oh. My. God. Watching the cricket has aged me 20 years at least. What a final, what a way to finish and England are the champions. Brilliant but utterly nailbiting stuff from start to finish.

OMG! Sport doesn't get more electric than that, whether you were watching the cricket or the tennis. I've got sore fingers and tendons from frenetic pounding of the remote control!
Unbelievable tension that no other sports can match for the sheer length of time that it's possible to be gripped.... imo....

Disappointing day for me, I was more bothered about Federer winning than the result of the cricket although I switched over to watch the exciting finish at Lords.
It's sad that I have lost interest in cricket, I was gutted when we lost to the stans in 1992 but am not arsed either way about it now.It's to do with the way sky have ruined the sport in my opinion from splitting the county championship into two divisions, making teams wear coloured pyjamas rather than whites, and jazzing up the Ashes to the detriment of every other team England play.Back in the day a West Indies tour of England was bigger than Australia coming here

Disagree 100%.

Cricket is far more exciting than it was even 10 years ago, and Sky have played a part in that.

The only reason a West Indies tour was bigger back in the day was because they had a great team.
