Luckily as I don't have Sky or BT, I don't have to put up with these so called experts.

I usually only watch via hesgoal, and tbh the Dutch commentators make more sense, and no I don't speak Dutch...

I used hesgoal until I acquired all the sources, they do use English commentators when there links are good.

I seem to recall Andy Townsend & a couple of other ex-footballers (forgotten their names) on there.

Hesgoal is great, but recently they have all been Dutch commentators, I can live with that being a tight git

The Dutch are quite excitable types when commentating on football, not as bad as the Brazilians though.

Given that it is an all English final ...the game should be moved to the UK, instead of all the travel and possible disruption that could occur in Turkey as it is Man Citeh v Chelski...

So?...given the current pandemic, and travel restrictions... plus it is 2 teams from the same country... makes perfect sense...things can be changed and being adaptable and flexible is not that difficult....and naming a ground for the game is easy... no logistics planned yet as they did not know who was playing ...untill today ...

Oh well , another final I won't be watching , I will watch nothing with Chelscum in it . Watch highlights only if they lose (either-or both finals )

Aston Villa have offered Villa Park for the Final. The FA and the British government are keen on that but it depends on UEFA and the Turkish footballing authorities. Also, Villa Park is not deemed adequate for Champions League Final but discussions are ongoing. The crazy thing is that Turkey is one of the biggest hotspots for Covid. Madness if it goes ahead there.

There is plenty of grounds that qualify Swannie...as you say EUFA these big games end up more as a day out for the families and big wigs of EUFA etc... but yes sheer madness in this day and age
