    Glad to see Liverpool win, 2 all Spanish finals would have been disappointing.

    I wonder if Ryback would be saying that if he was top of the tree.

    Glad to see Athletico go through. If there is a team who deserves to win the champions league it's them. I still hate the away goal rule though.

    Although alternatively you could say they had 2 better teams to beat to the title. I'm personally not convinced that shocks should be rated by British bookmakers. Whether its Leicester, Montpellier, Athletico or Greece. All were events I thought had equal chance before they happened which was non!

    Well people are still willing to throw money at the company every year at wrestlemania, so they must be doing something right. I think to just go after the wrestling fans would be a mistake. WWE should never be an independent company with great production values . When it's popularity boosts again it will be from the sports entertainment fans jumping on board. I agree that the world champion will not boost the company significantly, unless they find a superstar. However I think Reigns gets a very tough ride from elements of the fanbase compared to Rollins who also had significant flaws.

    These players earning potential will significantly reduce if they regress to their normal level. Its pretty much now or never if they want the deserved returns for their effort. Interestingly for all the talk of "greatest title win ever". Athletico won la liga recently with a similar wage bill.

    It depends how you define "shine". Styles can undoubtedly do more moves and do them better. Reigns is a lesser (yet still competent enough) worker, but I think is more charismatic than Styles and communicates better through non wrestling eg facial expressions/body language. Part of being the WWE main eventer is making someone believable as world champion. To me Reigns carries himself like a champion, AJ styles looks like a man you would bump into on the street. There is a place for both on the roster, but I dont think advancement up the ladder should be based purely on wrestling ability. As for Jericho working like its 2006 then I think thats a good idea. I think younger wrestlers matches are too fast paced, look too choreographed, lack any understanding of psychology or the art of selling. Theres very few who couldnt learn from Jericho. I think if they took the belt off Reigns and gave it to Rollins or Ambrose it would make zero impact on ratings. So while it could be said Reigns isnt working, Im strugglng to see what would work better. I personally like the Reigns/Styles combination and hope they go with it for a few months.

    I think its quite possible the players form will drop. When assessing them as a player I wouldnt judge someone purely on the basis of one season. They will strengthen, but will also lose some players who know this is the right time to cash in their chips. Leicester have played fantastic, but also been very lucky at times. I think its doubtful that they are as lucky next season.

    I think as a main eventer his big matches has been as good as anyone in the last year. I think a lot of people have just decided they wont like him because they dont want to follow the crowd, yet by booing him for the sake of it they are following the crowd just as much. He may not be a great technician, but I dont think you need to be to have entertaining matches I couldnt disagree more about Jericho. Despite being past his peak, he still shows up the current roster on a regular basis. He blows nearly everyone away in terms of promo skills, he has a far better understanding of psychology than most of the roster and doesnt just do moves for the sake of moves. He also understands the difference between being a heel and babyface and the subtle changes necessary. If I run a company he is someone I want my roster studying and learning from. I agree Ambrose lacks the x factor to be a main eventer. Talking about Cesaro I think Miz is the perfect opponent in terms of highlighting his strengths and hiding his weaknesses. Their match wasnt meant to steal the show, but I really enjoyed it for what it was. I perosnally think combining it with the Zayn and Owen feud is a waste. To me the money is in the Cesaro chase.

    The reality is that these clubs could spend nothing in the summer and will probably finish above Leicester next season. However even if its a one off, its a great story.

    Im not really into the comparisons with other sports. For one reason I think most people making these judgements probably dont follow enough sports in enough depth to make that conclusion. Also the fact football is a game generally dictated by a couple of goals differences between teams there are more scope for these kind of shocks than other sports.

    And Roman Reigns. I know its fashionable not to like him, but to me he delivers in pretty much every one of these main events and its not all down to his opponents as some may suggest. It was a decent PPV, sad for Enzo as he is one of the best things about the current product in my view. Still feel some of the things that they do are so misjudged. An example when they put Kevin Owens on commentary and he then starts going after Cole and Saxton. Do people (whether it be the writers or Owens) think this will get him over as heels. These commentators (unlike someone like JR) are not over as babyfaces, so its not going to work. Also sad to say but Jericho and Vince are still the best performers they have and its not 2000 anymore!

    Glad Leicester won, although they deserved to win it themselves on the pitch. It's great to see things mixed up after years of the same old teams winning. I think it's too early to draw conclusions that its proof you don't need money to win. Also great to see a good guy like Ranieri succeeding.
  14. Football 2015/16

    Hope (but don't think) spurs win today and extend the title race.
  15. Football 2015/16

    There are several worse players getting significant game time for Leicester, many players of that standard have won titles before . While I share concerns that arsenal have stagnated, there seems to be an assumption that things will get better, there's just as much chance things will get worse. Teams with the 4th biggest wage budget in a league finish below 4th more often than they finish first.
