So I think he got to the point where he said fuck it I'm not staying on my feet; if I need to be on the floor to get the foul then that's what I'll do.

Kane and especially Ali have been divers from day one.

If Mo was English, he wouldn't even be close to this discussion.

We have all become accustomed to players cheating for years. The commentators endorse it. The pundits rarely condone it. I'm 5'10 and about 11 stone, I'm not going down if someone lays an arm on my shoulder, so no way should these muscle bound athletes be doing so either. Its become as much a part of the game as having 11 players and 2 halfs of 45 minutes. Doesn't mean we have to like it or accept it.

Commentators and pundits are two faced twats.

If I had a pound for every time I heard one of them say "entitled to go down" over the 15 or 20 years I wouldn't be dragging my arse out of bed for work tomorrow. An entire generation of footballers has grown up being told they are allowed to cheat. And the same pundits in a desperate attempt to appear enlightened and moral have suddenly taken to criticising, usually foreign, players that follow that mantra.

6'1" and 36. I ain't going down. However I'm rarely finely balanced at full stretch.

That's what we tend to forget. Football is often played finely balanced at full stretch, that's why they go down easy not because they're made of tissue.

Though some of them are diving granted, but not always.

Although the Champions League is no longer free to watch as it previously was on ITV, football.london report the viewership for the final was up 76% in the UK.

However, the viewing figures for the final worldwide were down 53% due to moving behind pay TV.

Brazil, who are the biggest consumers of the Champions League, saw a drop of over 90% in terms of viewership, with Germany, who are seen as one of the major footballing nations, also seeing figures plummet.

BT Sport will once again broadcast Europe’s top competition next season as they extended their their deal until 2021 back in March 2017.

Their YouTube stream was useless though. Why didn't they make it available on Freeview too, like they did with both the 2016 European finals?

The youtube coverage was ok, lots of ghosting though

It should have been on freeview no doubt about that

So we get some lad taking the piss out of our defence and Gini pumping his chest. Yay.

Why couldn't we have Gini equalising against Barca or Origi scoring the winner against Spurs?

Yeah just think they could have shown some more epic things like Alison's save against Napoli which arguably was a key turning point for us.

Not upset though of course!

What could've been more epic than Henderson lifting the trophy at the end of the segment?

I know what you mean, though about the clips used.

The UEFA brand must show Messi and other galacticos. It doesn't really like the socialist collective ethic of a team like Liverpool.

Exactly. Its no biggie. If anything, it's Barcelona fans that will be spitting blood when they see Messi and Suarez in the 2019/2020 reel.
