Episode 1172: Champions League Final Heartbreak For Liverpool, And The Essential Meaninglessness Of Life
We expected a dramatic Champions League final, and it didn’t disappoint. Real Madrid are three-in-a-row champions of Europe, and Liverpool are left to rue Loris Karius’ extraordinary, unprecedented performance, and Mo Salah’s first half injury.
Haven’t really slept until now… the scenes are still running through my head again and again… I’m infinitely sorry to my teammates, for you fans, and for all the staff. I know that I messed it up with the two mistakes and let you all down… pic.twitter.com/w9GixPiQDC

Ken was there for us, and saw Karius’ horror display, and the greatest goal he’s ever seen, in the flesh. There’s also his thoughts on Sergio Ramos being the exact opposite of a master of the dark arts, and we get reaction from all quarters, including the European Judo Union.

Ken spoke with Miguel Delaney, Jonathan Wilson and Mark Critchley in the stadium after the game, and we also have time to talk about Tana Umaga’s tip tackle on Brian O’Driscoll, Gareth Bale’s ‘come and get me’ plea, and how sport is cruel, God doesn’t exist and the Champions League respects no moral code. HAPPY MONDAY EVERYBODY!!
