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

Liverpool deserved to win the Champions League after the season they have had

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

Spurs aren't even in the top three!

Funny old game football at times.

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.

Liverpool would have been trashed had city been there like they should have, spurs were pathetic, Manchester City are the best in England.

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.
