I did find myself hoping Tottenham would score just to make it a little more interesting.
Which is unfortunately sandwiched between Match week 1 and 2.
I just re-watched the game (Yes I did that to myself).
My first impression. (Even as a Pool fan). They did not deserve to win that game. I watched all Liverpool games and this one is quite possibly their worst game of the year. Football is funny sometime because as ****ty as Liverpool played they did barely enough to win it.
I do think it was a Penalty and VAR, Referee seem to think too... It sucks for Tottenham as it was obviously the game changer but it is what it is... Liverpool was more lucky.
As for Tottenham, they did their homework I could see that with how they set themselves up but they obviously reacted way too late to push more forward.
As a Liverpool fan I am obviously happy about the result but I expect better for the next time they play. They got away with this one thank god but if they want to win other cups, they will have to improve significantly.
As for Tottenham, they are not as far as people might believe. I really think that if they indeed get Ndombele, retain Erikssen and improve on Trippier they will be a force. I really liked the combination of Kane, Son and Ali although they did not score against Liverpool.
Still doesn't feel real.
It's also funny how neutrals seem to think it was boring. A hilarious parallel to the Devils in my world.
Yes, there were stretches of the match where I was upset and nervous, but I don't care until approximately mid-August. We were saved by Alisson and a stunning defensive performance. It was apropos of Liverpool to win a Final the hard way, as it was. Hats off to Tottenham, well played.

Huge if true
Ummm... I know this family, father and son are Madridistas (albeit somewhat casual and fairweather), and their youngest is named Messi.
It was just a joke.
Peter Crouch hilariously jokes he’s naming newborn son after CL hero – The Empire of The Kop
Thanks for sharing this. Always fascinating to glean an insight into the level of detail top coaches go to.
(Please share with Graeme Souness. This time he'll likely become so enraged by all this tactical hocus-pocus he'll hurl furniture).
Messi’s free kick vs Liverpool voted goal of the tournament.
This video is incredible. The attack at the start of the game planned to the last detail.
Eh, that's not really what you mean when you say "natural position" of ones arms. Pointing to your teammates is not an excuse if the ball hits the arm.
That doesn't make his position "wrong" but it was certainly stupid given the situation, and basically his fault for the penalty.
Mane vs Bayern
Was also really nice. Unfortunately, it wasn’t voted CL goal of the season.
That's a rubbish decision! He moved the ball 5 meters in and 3 meters center to a perfect spot. :/ Messi had other good goals from which to choose.
Ajax had couple goals in Madrid, that were as impressive too.
I think everyone is getting a bit fedup with the messiano ronaldo thing of lazy voters.
Son and Moura are the stars for Tottenham in the tournament. Too bad they couldn't score against Liverpool.
Louis van Gaal working on his post coaching stand up career?
Barcelona would win more if Messi was a team player - Van Gaal
I love James Milner but what...
He's not saying that Milner is the better player, he's saying a guy like Messi is counting too much on his team carrying him when it comes to defensive work..but of course Cristiano Ronaldo did win all those CL titles while doing the same, so ehh..
Yea it doesn't make much sense. Prior to this year you had Ronaldo x3, Messi, then Ronaldo again.
Barca also have a pretty darn good record domestically so it's not like they're stuck not winning anything.
Teams would win more if van Gaal wasn’t their coach too.
You don’t drive a Ferrari like a fiat.
