It's A Funny Old Game: The European Finalists

I'm sure I'm not going to be the first person to have thought what I am about to write. I know I'm not going to be the last.

Looking back at the past week of football in Europe, I noticed something funny.

If you had looked into a crystal ball five years ago and seen that Liverpool were going to play Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal to play Chelsea in European finals, you'd have assumed the first would be in the Europa League (UEFA Cup) and the latter would be to crown Champions League winners.

Only this isn't reality.

We have Liverpool and Spurs in the Champions League final and the other two teams competing against each other in the Europa League.

It's a funny old game.
