There have been 5 different champions in last 8 years of EPL not too many European leagues can say that.
Roll on next season.

Got to feel for Pulisic, he has been Chelsea’s best player last few weeks, scores a cracking opening goal in cup final, is about to score his second and hamstring goes.
He could have been on way to M.O.T.M. award and a winners medal instead of being a loser.

Hello,

True - he was screaming on the last stride before even getting the shot off. I just hope it's not bad...hamstrings have been notoriously bad for many players. I hope it doesn't affect his pace. He needs sufficient time off. He finished up having a great run of games at the end. The work on the first goal today - he sent the through ball and kept going forward scoring after a nice bit of footworking.

Yes I can’t believe he managed to still shoot when you could see the muscle had already gone. Very brave.
They have Timo Werner coming in so there should be no pressure to rush him back.

I thought they were going to do it in the 2nd half of extra time until Fulham scored again, they looked dangerous.

It was there for them with two games to go, after WBA slipped up. A shame they didn't make it because from what I hear they have been superb this season.

And Fulham have had plenty of chances in EPL so pick up big ££££ every time they get promoted then again when relegated without actually achieving anything. Time for someone else to have a go.
To be fair Fulham’s first goal was a cracker ( second wasn’t bad either).

God knows I'm not a great Bayern fan, but watching Barca fall apart was hilarious. Felt sorry for ter Stegen though.

Yeah, though with a defense like that, as a goalkeeper you're bound to look bad. Seemed more of a physical fitness issue than anything else.

It was Barcelona’s attempt to play out from the back which was beaten time after time by Bayern’s high press. Barcelona didn’t even try snd switch it up by going long.
You are correct about the defence who were also clueless when Bayern were on attack.

Very dated football these days.
