    They caught the guy who bombed the Borussia Dortmund bus - neither an Islamist nor a leftist nor a Nazi - a Russian criminal who bought put options on Dortmund stock, and who would have made millions if Dortmund's stock price had gone down massively because of players getting killed. He did it from the team hotel. Crazy world we live in.

    Might be on to something here. Need to do more research and tests though.

    It is looking more and more like Juve vs Real with a slight chance of either (Atletico or Monaco pulling an upset)

    Narrative: Zidane will be coaching against the ballclub that has made him into who he was.

    I'm really glad they got him. Pretty sure will help the BVB players a lot to get along. Since the notes were full of mistakes and inconsistencies, I kinda expected not a radical group behind this. Still, it is shocking that this piece of **** would bomb a bus a bet of people's death to make millions. Hope he'll see one or to Dortmund fans in prison to get the correct treatment. And what kind of idiot he is: As if police wouldn't have caught him if he made millions, he even stayed in the same hotel. Could've left his name and address in the notes in the first place.

    I'm glad we won't have another Madrid derby in the final.

    Juve vs Atletico would be great, they deserve it (especially Atletico, after coming close in the last years).

    We are constantly getting f***ed by the refs, it's getting worse and worse. That Mainz player was doing his best Bruce Lee impression and the ref still didn't call a penalty, it's f****in ridiculous at this point.

    That said, I really want us to make some heavy investments this summer, this roster is not up to par with top teams like Real anymore, especially when it comes to bench players.

    This is pretty funny. Out of all the people to ask to take the picture, she asked the only one who had actually done anything and won anything in Europe and in the World Cup. While she got her picture taken with a bunch of regulars

    I'm glad we won't have another Spanish only game. I think Monaco has a very good chance at surprising everyone. They are a very good team and very interesting to watch.

    This season went from “damn, think we can win the Triple“ to sh** in two weeks, damn.

    Is it just me or has this football season been incredibly ho-hum? Besides the big Barca comeback vs PSG in the CL and the Monaco rise there hasn't really been a lot going on.
