Biased referee and conspiracy theories abound following Chelsea – Barça

Filed under: sports — newritings @ 4:49 pm

The bad refereeing by Tom Henning on the memorable night when Barça (through Iniesta) scored in the last minute has got Chelsea fans mad with rage. I think they take their cue from Ballack and Drogba who almost assaulted the ref, who is now reportedly under security protection. It is true the ref was bad in this match, and so was the one in the first leg. It is also true that Chelsea played anti football, in both matches, and at the end of the day, only have themselves to blame.

They are mad with rage, they could not go through to the finals, and the conspiracy goes that UEFA did not want another Man U- Chelsea final. Why then did the ref send off Abidal for a non existent foul with about 20 odd minutes left? Even then, it was Barça that showed the true willingness to win, taking all chances but continuing to play beautifully. And it paid off… it’s a great victory and shows that good guys (many of them small) do not have to end up last.
