And there were lots of great comebacks for those English teams to reach those finals.
In the Champions League Semi-final first leg between Barcelona and five-time winners Liverpool at the Nou Camp, Liverpool were trounced 3-0. Starting the second leg 3-0 down on aggregate, it seemed like a mountain to climb, but they won 4-0 to reach the Final 4-3 on aggregate.
In the other Champions League Semi-final London club Tottenham Hotspur lost at home in their fantastic new stadium 1-0 to Amsterdam side Ajax. In the second leg in Amsterdam, Ajax went 2-0 up in the game to go 3-0 up on aggregate and it looked like they would play Liverpool in the Final. But somehow, Tottenham came back from 2-0 down to go 3-2 up to make it 3-3 on aggregate, and went through to the Final courtesy of having scored more away goals than Ajax. Even more heartbreakingly for Ajax, Tottenham's winning goal came in the 96th minute, almost the last kick of the game:
Liverpool - Five-time winners: 1977, 1978, 1981, 1984, 2005
Tottenham Hotspur - Never won it and never played in the Final. They were, however, the first British team to win a major European tournament - the 1963 Cup Winners' Cup - and won the inaugural Uefa Cup - forerunner to the Europa League - in 1972.
Uefa Cup/Europa League:
Chelsea: Winners in 2013
Arsenal: Never won it.
This is also the tournament's first final to be contested between two teams from the same city (London).
More great footballing drama on the final day of the season. In order for Liverpool to win the English league title for the first time since 1990, they have to beat Wolves and have Manchester City draw or lose against Brighton & Hove Albion. Liverpool are currently leading Wolves 1-0 and Manchester City came from 1-0 down and are now leading 2-1. As things stand, Manchester City will win the title by just one point.
Poor Liverpool. They've just gone 2-0 up against Wolverhampton Wanderers knowing that if they win and Manchester City fail to beat Brighton & Hove Albion they win the title for the first time since 1990 - and then they find City have just gone 4-1 up.
So that's it. Manchester City are about to be crowned English champions for the fourth time in seven years.
Liverpool suffer just one defeat all season, get a whopping 97 points and still can't end their long wait for another title. That one defeat they suffered? Against Manchester City in January.
FA Cup Final and Eurovision Song Contest Day! Have the match - Manchester City vs Watford - on whilst I do some housework and then chill out for a few hours of late night cheesy Europop with a bottle (or two) of wine and some nice nibbles.
The BBC is getting all excited by the Women's World Cup. It keeps showing jazzy new trailers for the upcoming tournament, with rap music and women chanting and stern-faced bints in pigtails and ponytails kicking balls (which are on fire, for some reason) into nets.
Someone needs to tell the virtue-signalling Beeb that women's football is a joke. It's crap. And the best women's football teams are routinely beaten by schoolboy teams. And that's no joke.
In 2016, the Australian women’s national team - then ranked fifth in the world - were beaten 7–0 by the Newcastle Jets under-15 boys. In 2017, the USA suffered a similar fate - 5-2 down - against FC Dallas’s U15 boys.
So, please, BBC. No more mention of the Women's World Cup.
