How is Barca corrupt just because the ref missed a call? Does football fan believe every botched call is bought?

I dont unsderstand that type of reasoning either. IMO Barca are one of the cleanest of teams out there in pro football.

Saying the only commentators people complain about her are the American guys even though they are not much different than the rest and not even American. It just gets old, although I am not accusing you of anything.

I just said "US ESPN" to signify who else is watching the same as me, not saying he is biased because he is from the US.

Even in Asia it is the same commentator.

Whatever it is, dude was super biased and it was funny

EVERYTHING Barca did was wrong according to him.

Maybe that is becouse most ppl tune into english speaking channesl for the games. I dont think it has anything to do with amercans. Anyway IMO they are different compared to other comms that I have heard. A little bit of biased commentary is understandable and happens all the time. After all comms are also humans but those two are just something else. They are more suited to be commenting for one of the ebglish club channels than an international one.

Maybe that is because ESPN only shows CL games featuring EPL teams or Real and Barca. It's pretty focking annoying. They only call gams with English teams so no wonder they have a bias. They are the only teams they call.

If they only would try some long balls at Messi and Eto'o or just try shooting a little bit.
Its somewhat comforting to see that other great players also can have difficulty against this kind of defending. Not just Kaka

I have lost my voice yelling "DIE CHELSEA" repeatedly to the waiter in the pub

Well Chelsea played as good as one can play Barca.

The referees definitely ****ed them in the ass, but, its part of the game. The ref wasn't bought or anything, he was clearly just a retard.

The three best teams in Europe (maybe Liverpool is up there as well) were going to face off, and I think the best two clearly are going to play against each other. Should be a blast to watch, even though Barcelona's defence is so crippled that Messi really will not get another lifeline and has to play ok for them to win.

The size mismatch between Barcelona and Untied is too much really, and without their defenders (outside of Pique that probably knows his former team well)... well I think Untied will repeat. Hoping for the opposite.

Chelsea probably earned the ticket, but they blew it off in the last second.
The ref was absolutely astonishingly bad, and generally bad agaisnt Chelsea.

But, they messed up at the end, they lost it themselves as well. Hiddink is not a finals man, I wonder why people are surprised that the curse lives on.

Ref seedorfed both teams tonight; maybe with more favallishots up Chel$ka's galliani, but it always feel great to beat Chel$ka. A mid table club has no room among the elite

I'll root for Brca becase this great club should not be on par with inert!

I agree about the ref. But Chelski realy played tough. Dont blame them for using thier strength tough. Just like Barcas way of playing way better.

About Hiddink... I tought he made a bad misstake concidering his experience, specially when he has personal experience of last minute goals conceded. He should have ordered his men to move forward when Barca were reduced to 10. But they still allowed Barca to have all the possesion in th eworld.

Its not that you don't allow Barca possesion, they are that good and they will keep it, even with 10 men.
They have done it to us 3 out of the last 4 times we played, when we were really good.

Its like blaming Milan for the time Dinho beat us a few years back when he shook Nesta off the pitch and hit it in the top corner. We had 10 dudes in there, but sometimes one guy is good enough to hit it and there were too many barca men in the area for it to not be safeguarded as it was.

I understand that but today chelski had maneged to disrupt Barcas free flowing passing game and besides twords the end of the game they looked more tired to me than the Chelski players. I think they could have and should have taken the game to Barca when they had the chance.

Also Barcas goal came out of a miss clearence, that can be avoided.
