I am a Liverpool fan, I have to agree the Ref did a bad job here, and its obvious that a lot of European clubs are pissed off at the rate Premiership
teams are pushing them aside in the European competitions, you only have to look at the last 4 in the competitions over the years, but that is because
IMO the Premiership is in a class of its own, a whole different game from the continental style, I think some countries play lazy football, they hate
playing top Premiership teams, they have to up their game a lot just to stay in the game.
I wanted Barca to go through, but I do think Chelsea where robbed by bad Refereeing, as to it being a UEFA conspiracy, I don't think they are that
stupid to be honest, I can see in the not too distant future, the end to the two leg games, and these games being played like the Final at a neutral
ground, get the leg over with in one game in one of the huge stadiums dotted around Europe to get the pay day expected by the clubs.
Drogba although out of order on live TV, had a point to be angry, and you could see the panel in the studio where a little stunned at the referee and
his decisions, a stunned silence you could say, I think a lot of questions need to be asked now, and the ref banned from this kind of game until he
can do the job right, IMO the ref was wrong on several occasions, its bad refereeing like that, which will bring about instant reply rules, which have
no place in football at all, European Football does not need gimmicks, that's why its the best game on the Planet IMO.
