    Dida looks a lot like Muhammad Ali. His handling is not dissimilar either, taking lighting the 1996 Olympic Torch as the touchstone.

    I thought Rafa “tactical genius” Benitez dropped a bollock tonight – I think he should have replaced Alonso with Bellamy and Kuyt with Crouch. Milan were fairly poor, and Liverpool probably had enough chances to take it to extra time even though their opponents were playing a 7-man defence for the last 30 minutes. Still, it wasn’t a bad game, even if the winners being called European Champions seems a bit mental.

    Clive Tyldesley should be congratulated, by the way. His epic pre-amble just before kick-off made me think “good god Clive, I want to hear from David Pleat”, words I never thought I’d countenance.

    The game’s up, Benitez. They should sack him and bring in Stuart Pearce. I hear he’s looking for a job.

    Great commentary! I was advised by my colleague to watch Sky’s coverage with Gray and Tyler and I have to say (going by your article) that it was a damn sight better than ITV’s.

    Shame about Jamie ‘Verbal Diarrhoea’ Redknapp, Graeme ‘I’ll use my glass of water to illustrate player movements on the pitch’ Souness and Ruud ‘Can’t get a word in edgeways’ Gullit being the invited panel of experts…
