Well, well, well...
1. That was a HORRIBLE call, can't believe ANYBODY would defend it. 2nd worst call I have seen in the CL behind RvP's red for shooting the ball 1/2 second after a whistle 50 yards away from him in one of the biggest stadiums in Europe. Worst call I've seen this year besides Torres red for "diving" after getting cleats to the shin from Johnny Evans.
2. Officiating like this is the downfall of soccer. Truly disgusting an official would do something so unnecessary in such a moment (or any moment to satisfy SFP). However, with that said...
With that said....
I LOVE IT- if Chelsea has to go out like some bitches in the group stage the best possible outcome is watching Man U and Barca (hopefully) crash out on the back of dubious officiating. There may be justice in the world after all.

Has Cahill ever shown a moment where you think he does dirty plays away from the ball? Remember he went nuts afterwards? I'm not saying this red was red, because it wasn't, but this ref has a history of shitty reds.
