It’s going to be annoying.
There is no conceivable outcome where it won’t be.
That said, Liverpool have won this before, and all that long ago, so them winning it again is, for me, the lesser of two extremely annoying outcomes. I’m not sure I’m ready for a world where Spurs have won the European Cup. Not. At. All.
Plus, Liverpool have Mo Salah, who’s lovely, and Daniel Sturridge, who’s a great dancer. They also have Virgil van Dijk, who’s really quite great at what he does.
Here we go.
But before that, in actual extremely tragic news, former Arsenal forward Jose Antonio Reyes passed away in a car accident. RIP.
