Arse fans claiming they have been cheated by UEFA?!
Wait ’til you have 4 blatant stone wall penalties turned down and you know that each and every one of them would have been given the other way. Chelsea 1-0 up and nothing against you given at all – nothing. Barca get a late equaliser and go through on away goals into the final to play a shite manc side and beat them comfortably. UEFA didn’t want another Chels’-manc final.
Yes, after a decent performance seeing 0-0 at the Nou Camp, it was back to the Bridge. Drogba had even missed a 1-on-1 at the Nou Camp. At the Bridge we could have had a second goal but missed, and, of course, the 4 penalties. Four.
The ref even says now that he’d ‘have reffed the game differently’ had he been able to do it again. They got a very late goal to make it 1-1 on the night. We the had the 4th penalty turned down where a shot going towards goal was blocked (saved?!) by an outstretched arm. That was the incident many enjoy so much watching the animated gif where Ballack was chasing the ref.
That was a semi final, with a very winnable game in the final.
Here we have the first knock out stage and your very own player missing a penalty early doors then a last man foul seeing a sending off and you claim to have been cheated by UEFA.
Arse fans, read the above again and imagine being on the other end of that – the year after the Moscow heartache.
Fkk off, have YOU been cheated.
Drogba got banned for telling the ref exactly what he was that night. The man who wanted to make amends for his own sending off in the previous year’s final in Moscow.
He stayed to and put it right in the end.
