The Daily Hilario: Specialist in trophies

Your daily dose of off-topic shenanigans.

Arsenal finally ended their trophy drought just under nine years after it began. After a hilariously awful opening twenty minutes, Arsenal started playing like a top five side while Hull City started playing like Hull City. Meanwhile, in Spain, Barcelona couldn't hold a 1-0 lead over Atletico Madrid, and subsequently got to watch the bitterest rivals of their bitterest rivals lift the La Liga trophy. Here are some of the big stories from Saturday:

Tata Martino out at Barca

After failing to win a trophy with an aging squad that hasn't been reinforced properly for years, Barcelona's manager resigned. I hate to break it to Barcelona fans, but unless your club spends an awful lot of money this summer, the next guy probably won't fare any better.

Bayern lifts another trophy

Pep's merry band of hobbits downed Borussia Dortmund on Saturday, and will now watch their best player join on a free transfer. Don't expect the Bundesliga to be any more competitive next season than it was this year.

Arsenal win a real trophy

Now we can start the clock on their next trophy drought.
