and Chelsea hardly defended for 90 minutes. They pushed up a lot.
Yeah, he prob cudn't cope with the legendary Chelsea defense, losing the ball everytime. So all he got was an assist that sent Barca tru.

And the pushing up alot was jz counterattack

Also if Chelsea din put on a "glorius defensive performance" in Spain and bothered to attack, maybe they wud hav gotten an away goal too. What goes around comes around. Kinda like Fletcher

A win for barca is a win for football as far as im concerned. Chelsea did play much better this game though and pushed forward on occasion, but the so called controversy about penalties is stupid Chelsea hype. There was one clear cut penalty, which was pique's handball, but you may as well cancel that out with abidals ridiculous red card, so Chelsea were definitely not hard done by. I never expected much from chelsea, just very dissapointed Hiddink stooped himself to the level he did, ive lost alot of respect for him after this semi final.

Anyway this will make for an interesting final, Manchester wont sit back, they will want to dominate the game. Congrats to barca.

He didn't do what he usually does did he? No, didn't think so. Everyone who always said c.ronaldo doesn't show up in big games won't say anything about Messi not showing up. He didn't do much this game, nor did he do much last game. And even going back to last years semi against Man U he didn't do much.

Well as again, jz like your "Chelsea put in an effective performance at Spain" argument, can only wait untill the nex game to see which will turn up.

Btw, as a lover of the Barcelona way, I dedicate this song to Chelsea and anyone who thinks they were unlucky with their "effective defensive performance"

Even though I am a Chelsea fan,I think justice has been done and the better team won,Chelsea were not good enough ,drogba and malouda are sh*t players,they should go,especially drogba,if he does not go next season,I would start supporting another team in epl .Regarding referee mistakes,he was a newbie to games like this but overall he was good.Abdial's red card canceled out chelsea's penalty,do not think about chelsea only,Barca also suffered harsh decisions.Credit to Barca,they won with 10 men,played entertaining football and remained stubborn when they had to.Shahensha must be in 7th heaven :wink:

thank you! someone sees it my way.
Chelsea fans shouldn't blame the refs or anyone for the loss, but drogba. Drogba is the reason that you guys aren't in the final.

But we have the same Semi-final...

and what happened with Abidal was expert refereeing :?: both teams suffered harsh decisions so it is better for us to stop complaining and be happy that we are going to watch a better final than last year's.

Great result. Couldnt have gone any better. Its seems to be cool to hate Chelsea which made it even sweeter. Some complete bellends supporting chelsea in the pub shouting though the entire game and when barca scored 80% of people jumped up and celebrated. Brilliant

All this abuse Chelsea are getting may be a bit harsh. On the night Malouda was better than Messi and Drogba was far better than Eto'o so to blame the defeat on them might be a bit silly.

Essien must be gutted :D

Messi did nothing and Eto'o did nothing. Barca just kept posession with the ball, but did not do anything except for the goal. I mean an attacking team like Barca only got 1 shot on target!!! I think Chelsea did more meaningful things with the ball, but the ref was a major factor in their loss.

But w.e. Manchester I think would be the favorite against both teams, and I think we might get the repeat..... :D
