    Yeah agree. Just give managers 2 or 3 "challenges" of a decision per match or something. That way the game isn't stopped continuously.

    Although the game was effectively over anyway. Don't like Real, but they've been the better team over the 90 minutes.

    Some Chinese bookies have taken an absolute hammering tonight.

    Juve have played the long game. Their owners made more tonight on 4-1 than winning a bit of metal.

    Forza Juve!

    I wouldn't say ripped them apart. They've had the greater huff and puff and Juve can't complain having offered very little in the second half, but it took a deflected shot for the breakthrough and then the hammer blow of 3-1 quickly after when they were licking their wounds a bit and lost a little focus. Then that last goal where the defender had given up was just rubbing it in.

    Bale was always going to get a cameo in Cardiff.

    Ouch. 4-1 hurts. Juve are just like the Italian national team. When we lose, we lose hard.

    Well, we've still made history. 3 doubles in a row is a great achievement. Just not quite good enough for the CL though. Problem is we're too dominant domestically. We have no competition like Real does in Atletico and Barca. Sure, half of La Liga is Championship quality, but the top 3 are just really fucking good. Real are used to this kind of fight int his kind of final. Juve aren't.

    Can't say I watch Juve other than the CL, but my observation of teams like them is that keeping it tight and/or taking the lead are key to their success.

    They are not at their best when chasing games.

    That's a fair assessment mate. We don't quite have the killer instinct to smash teams like Real do.

    This is interesting, and honest........

    italians for real madrid

    Former President of Napoli, Corrado Ferlaino: “I am Napoletano and I must support Real Madrid. If Juventus were to win the Champions League, they would take a lot of money that they would use to buy more players and Napoli couldn’t fight for the Scudetto even next year. I’m not Italiano, I’m Napoletano. I don’t care about Juventus, I don’t root for the Piemontesi”

    Borja Valero, Fiorentina player: “I’ll support Real Madrid because I grew up with the camiseta blanca and the Bianconeri are the enemies of my Fiorentina”

    Giacomo Ciccio Valenti, italian TV and radio conductor, Inter Milan supporter: “How many Juventini fans supported Inter in 2010? Nobody. At Cardiff we’ll return the favor. I already know what shirt will be worn by my son: white, with the words C. Ronaldo”

    Paolo Beldì, italian filmmaker, Fiorentina “la viola” supporter: “Who will I root for in the Champions League final between Juventus and Real Madrid? It’s not my fault if Real Madrid will play with the purple jersey…”

    Bruno Peres, former player of Torino FC and now playing in Roma: “Juventus is a great team, but we support the failing of the Triplete, so we are happy if they lose”
