I tell you, Griezmann isn't going anywhere. Atletico's project is interesting, and he loves Siemone.

Seems like Inter is slightly interested in James Rodriguez and has offered us €42 million, but we want more. I expect talks to continue after the Champions League final.

No they weren't, just the gossip press were saying that. There is a difference between people that write anything to get paid and people like Di Marzio.

It's been way too long since my team was champion and I don't know anymore, lol. I just promised myself I would get the shirt when they became champions, and they finally did.

I always get one eventually with the new star, since I'm heading to Guadalajara in a month, I'm hoping they have the 12th star jersey ready

Looks like Madrid is getting Theo and Marcos Llorente this summer.

Great signings imo if true.

Yes. Theo was confirmed for €24 million some days ago. Llorente will definitely return for the pre-season, and we'll see from there how it goes. He can be a great competitor to Casemiro. Hopefully we bring back Jesus Vallejo too.

i think chelsea will drop off next year. people will start to figure out the 3-4-3 and be prepared, plus i think their attack has a few weaknesses and they depended on hazard and costa being incredibly clutch at crucial moments this year which is hard to repeat, especially when you have more games, like we've seen with vardy & mahrez. however this point is premature till i see how conte adds to his squad.

Yes, it's frustrating how little Conte rotates the squad, and his late substitutions drive me bonkers. But still, didn't expect a titlenthis season so it's obvious he knows what he's doing.

Don't think Diego Costa will be at Chelsea next season, the way he came off in the last premier league match of the season, felt like he was saying goodbye.

the only moment I enjoyed on Saturday at Wembley was before the match, when two Arse fans were walking away from the stadium to a pub and some Chelsea fans yelled, 'Did you lot already lose again?' Everyone chuckled, including the Arsenal fans.

Split on who I want to win. On the one hand mg mate supports Reading, on the other hand, Huddersfield is managed by a good friend of Klopp's so that might be fun. Plus it'd be a good place to send people on loan.

I nust confess that, even as a Reading supporter, I wouldn't mind if Huddersfield took it. Both clubs have managed an impressive turnaround from last year when they were 17th and 19th respectively by betting on first time managers (well, Wagner managed a reserve team, so Huddersfield can be considered his first 'full' gig), and have something to achieve today - Huddersfield being in the Premier League for the first time, Reading winning promotion via playoff. Either result would be a fairy tale ending for their respective clubs.

Just hoping for a good, exciting game in all.

The rumours have been that the agreement has been sorted between the player and the clubs since March but its sorting out the third party side of things that has been taking time.

It's more confusing that both teams kept chanting blue and white army as we were going up Wembley way.

Lorient FC in France. I think our most famous old players right now would be Koscielny and Guerreiro before they joined Arsenal and Dortmund. Gameiro was here too.

Sadly, I'm not too optimistic about our promotion chances until our president is gone. He took over a few years ago and ruined decades of effort with his greediness and incompetence.

Not the most exciting first half. Unfortunately, our high possession play has tended to have a weakness against teams actually confident enough to challenge us for the ball. Huddersfield seem way more eager at the moment.

Agreed. If/when it's scored it'll blow the roof off.
