Nope. None of them were penalties. If anything, penalties should have been given to Barcelona /bananas
You're biased. Chelsea were denied ONLY 2 penalties, and Barcelona were denied a penalty from the first leg, and got an unfair red card. So Chelsea were hardly screwed. You guys got exactly what you deserved from that tie given the anti-football you played. Iniesta's goal that game was a victory for football.

I hate Chelsea but this hilarious. The ref from the second leg was fucking awful. Chelsea played a clever strategy not anti-football. Anti-football is stoke trying to kick people off the pitch and acting like thugs. Chelsea just played defensive.

^ please tell me the final part of that post is sarcasm Bananas? I want to give you the benefit of the doubt given Joel's sarcastic response in his post, but if that's your genuine opinion then christ that's misguided. Nothing wrong with Chelsea's tactics in those ties. Not every team is blessed with the academy, scouting and raw talent Barcelona's academy and coaches have to ensure a long line of technically gifted footballers from a young age. Chelsea basically admitting trying to play Barcelona's game against them was hopeless and adjusting to tactics that benefitted their players and which were used to nullify the barcelona attack were justifiable.

'Victory for football' is also elitist garbage. As a neutral I didn't give a crap who got through, best team over the course of two legs deserves to go through in spite of my personal feelings. This idea that football fans as a whole cultivate to respect and support Barcelona is a hilarious myth. They play great football and I admire the fondness of developing young players to be the mainstay of their team, but if you're going to try and extend basic respect for their football ideology into some form of support and wanting them to win 'for the sake of football'...well then I don't know what to say.

Never said the ref wasn't bad. He made 3 very bad calls that game. 2 non given penalties for Chelsea, and one bad red card given to Barcelona. Then if you also take into account the non given penalty to Barcelona from the first leg, you'll see that the poor decisions were pretty much split between the sides.

Also it's worth noting, I don't mind defensive/cautious football. Chelsea were playing hoof ball against Barcelona. There was no intent for any midfield elaboration on their part. If I recall correctly, they in the 20s % for possession in both legs. It was just hoofball up to Drogba, and all the midfielders just defend.

Again though, they played a strategy that very nearly got them through to the final as opposed to a game plan that was very likely to see them get beaten badly in spite of it being more 'entertaining'. Look, I enjoyed seeing Chelsea go out at the death because I'll always prefer to see a domestic rival fail as opposed to winning and lauding it over me for an entire season, but if Chelsea got through and defended well to nullify Barcelona that doesn't mean I'd start accusing them of being 'anti-football'.

I dunno, your post just reminded me of people I've seen/heard talking as if Barcelona are almost their second team because of the way they play the game. I respect their philosophy and talent, but it boggles me to see and hear people basically try and argue any avid football fan should root for Barcelona based on how they play the game. Not necessarily saying you believe this, just elaborating why your point raised my interest even if I first thought it could have been sarcasm in light of Joel's post about you.

Nah, they were more than two pens that should have gone to us. A definite three, potentially four.

Abidal should not have been sent off for what he was. But he should have been sent off for pulling Dorgba's shirt in a one on one situation earlier in the game. It caught up in the end.

Your excuses suck balls.

Do I really care anymore? Not really. We avenged that loss last year and we know what happened after that.

You can call it anti-football all you want but in the second leg Chelsea had as many shot and corners as Barca, as well as having fewer fouls.
