When you play 13 against 9 for 25 minutes and still have the best chance to win the game I'm not happy with just 1 point.

Penalty denied is Amsterdam, goal wrongfully disallowed in Amsterdam...

And if that wasn't enough they thought let's screw Ajax a bit more in London by not allowing Ajax fans and giving them a drunk ref.

I won't even start naming all the errors, the images speak for themselves.

Only thing that was in our favour was the 4 minutes of added time that should've been 6.

That post from J79 is what our PGT threads look like to non Flames fans. The cards and the penalties were well deserved.

If your lack of knowledge and understanding of the game and the rules is this big I won't even bother to try and argue with you.

Ajax dominated Chelsea for 70 minutes untill the ref decided he wanted another outcome of the game. That's the thing that bothers me the most.
There were 4 handballs in the game. He decided to punish the only handball of an Ajax player with a yellow card. A second yellow card.
Rules are rules, you can't apply them to just one team.

The second Chelsea goal looked very much offside. We always see those red and blue lines as proof of offside/not offside (like at the 1-2 goal from Promes)
They never showed that for the second Chelsea goal.
Did they had something to hide?

Looks like they did...

Spoiler!



Even the biggest Chelsea fans can't say they weren't lucky with the refs decisions. Both in Amsterdam and in London.

Just randomly says things in the hope of and pretending to sound clever. Then when you debate it, you get the I was only joking defence.

LOL Ederson got hurt and Bravo just got a red card so City have to play a non-goalie in net.

Edit: Kyle Walker it is.

I like Ajax as much as I like Chelsea - i.e. I will cheer for either against pretty much anyone else. You just sound paranoid. The Blind trip was clearly a yellow, and therefore a red. Very unlucky that on the same sequence a player used a hand in the penalty box to stop a goal- bound shot - the hand was hanging and the ball would have been on target but for the hand. Seems like a reasonable yellow card and, hence, a red. Sure, CFC were lucky, but I don't see a conspiracy there...

Holy did Dinamo ZG ever blow it. They were up 3-1 and Shakhtar scores 93' and 98' minute to tie it up.

No care about Spurs? You’re not much of a Chelsea fan.

I cheer for the Wolves. I like Chelsea, but I have always had a soft spot for Tottenham too, so, yeah, not much of a Chelsea fan.

Your (or mine) opinion doesn't matter if the ref and/or the VAR followed the rules.

The Veltman penalty:

- There is now no handball if the ball is deflected onto the arm, or if the ball hits a player using his arm for support. (Mazraoui defelcted the ball)

And in addition:

- There will be no penalty if:
the ball touches a player's hand/arm close to their body and has not made their silhouette unnaturally bigger.

Besides that, the 'triple punishment' (penalty, sending off, suspension) was scratched from the rulebook 1 or 2 season ago.

The above situation wouldn't even matter if the ref followed this rule:

- Advantage should not be applied in situations involving serious foul play, violent conduct or a second cautionable offence unless there is a clear opportunity to score a goal.

Ref should've stopped play after the Blind foul
(it was a foul on Blind first and his first yellow card was total BS, but okay)


https://www.goal.com/en-sg/news/how-...91qyeu9ay8wlrn

https://www.theifab.com/laws/chapter/32/section/94/

Conspiracy? Nah, I don't believe that.
However, when 1 team is screwed over several times in 180 minutes against the same opponent, not by opninion but by the rulebook, it's very hard to explain and to understand.
And it's not like UEFA is transparant and an open book organization with a flawless track record.

Champions League television rights have been won by...wait for it...CBS.

If you've ever wanted Jim Nantz to call a soccer game, you might be in luck

They will bring in the proper people like turner did

Its gonna go on cbs all access I bet, at least most of it outside maybe the final, with a few games a week shown on cbs sports network. Same as turner had with br app

We are really lucky up here with pl, cl, el, serie a, championship, j league etc. All on same streaming service

Some talk espn+ is gonna try and get premier league from nbc when the next bid is up, would mean americans need 2
