Barca night of joy maybe - but football - and EUFAs night of shame - and comments from then condoned cheating - Champins Leauge sucks if has dropped to this standard - video evidence and retrospective bans - oops forgot, that is only for Wee teams!!!!
Miracle in Istanbul is still the greatest CL comeback.And Gerrard was pulled back twice by Gattuso before you ask. This match is just fake UEFALONA crap.
I can't believe I did not watch the game because I thought "it was over" in the first leg.
Draxler and Cavani should have both been sent off by the 75th minute as well, Draxler for kicking the ball away early in the second half when already on a yellow and Cavani for diving when already on a yellow as well. This has probably been missed by quite a few people.
Does Brexit mean that Arsin Whinger will have to have a guaranteed job before he's let into the country?
One of the all time great games.
That's just a few big champions league games there's loads more but that's how the game is, I don't think any team gets favourable decisions all the time, it's just all this partisan game decision bs that gets in the way of appreciating the game and unbelievablely great sides like this Barcelona one. And yes City were brilliant and could have scored a lot more. Rare loss for this barcelona team.
@508 - Fair play, you nearly found 1 per calendar year!!! Now contrast that with the myriad that go in their favour and you have more than enough evidence to prove me right!! As for Barca 'always' winning, they employ dirty tactics to gain an unfair advantage, as I have highlighted in a previous post (499) and, if memory serves me right, they left the Etihad beaten 3-1 and lucky it wasn't 6-1!!
496. Posted by City til I die onGames v City, who cares they beat you all the time anyway, that clearly has nothing to do with your attitude though.2016 - at City, Messi fouled in the box no penalty, aguero assists goal with his hand (christ imagine if the cheat suarez did that you'd have a field day, but it was Kun so we'll say nothing)There's more but barca usually just won anyway...
Does anyone posting on here about using video replays to sort out contentious decisions realise that there will be one person deciding the outcome. Who is to say that his/her decision will be "correct".I also watch both versions of the game of rugby where this review system is used and must confess that on several occasions I have disagreed with the verdict.So, who is right - them or me ??

Bojan goal chalked off dubiously for toure handball in build up.
good to see manure, chelski and arseanal fans all crying together about barca. how about your teams and their performance both at home and in europe over the recent years? is that the beautiful game? you got done by leicester last year but still believe you play in the best league. deluded.
Why can't we just drop the conspiracy theories, the allegations of cheating and all the other bulls**t and just admit we've just witnessed one of the greatest games of the greatest game on earth? Stop thinking too deep and accept that games like this and stories like LCFC are why we love the beautiful game.
