    A man light, but winning the game with everyone behind the ball. That can often be one of the hardest situations to play against.

    Thought he was excellent. Made space for himself through intelligent play and the goal was special.

    He hit the ground running, unlike Nani who hit the player flying.

    Yeah, I'd say he almost single-handedly turned the match in Madrid's favour, and that was before the goal (which was the icing on the cake).

    Then again, hard to say if he would have had as much impact against 11 men. But he's a joy to watch, and makes you wish he'd gone to a club that would have made more/better use of him.

    Not to belabour the point, but here are some interesting perspectives on punishing kicks to the chest:

    Evans on Drogba
    Ferdinand on Sagna.

    Neither resulted in even a caution (well Drogba's leg shakes were shown yellow), the Evans one being particularly hilarious for a variety of reasons.

    Elsewhere, we have

    Eboue sent off for kicking Evra

    and

    Zlatan's recent incident

    Here both had their eye on the ball the entire time, but were sent off.

    Roz, given who you support, you very much live in a glass house with very few panes of glass left, maybe not wise to try and make more of that, than necessary.

    Sure it was scummy, but Terry and cole are bound to have bettered that within 5 minutes of their next respective starts.
    :lol: I think I will try and use this gif daily now. Terry and Cole have never shown this kind kind of agression to a ref, Rio will rightly get a big suspension.
    You... can't actually be serious. Surely? I mean, I assumed because you support Chelsea that you had watched them at some stage.

    Under Mourinho especially, they were the worst I've ever seen for this kind of stuff.
    I think your delusional, this is definatly worse then anything Terry and Cole have done to a ref. utd have always been the worse though, the FA had to really step up punishment for dissent after those famous incidents with Keane and Stam chasing refs around the pitch. If Rio doesn't get banned its a fucking disgrace
    What about Drogba and Ballack?
    As a Chelsea fan you have nothing to say here.

    Oh believe me I had plenty to say and did. One thing I did learn though was to be less emotionally invested in a game I am not even playing in.
    We were robbed of four penalties in our favor, the referring was a disgrace.

    Also the prior year when Tevez goaded Drogba into slapping him with two fingers. If a player instigates provocation, he should be sent off too.

    Well rules are rules, he's obligated to do the press conference and he didn't. I'm sure he doesn't care and will just accept the fine. The club will pay it anyway.

    If it was my team the only question I would ask of Ferguson is why not play Wayne Rooney from the start? Why leave the best player since Ronaldo left, out of the starting line-up. See your best players are called starters. Its not like he was in a bad run of form, how many assists did he have last week, two was it?

    Because he didnt think he could do the job the team needed to do and he was proved right until nani got sent off.

    Its why, frankly, Ferguson is the greatest manager who has ever lived, as much as it makes me vomit a little in my mouth to say that.

    Against Norwich.

    How well did he play at the Bernabeu?

    How many times did he give the ball away after he came on last night? Compare that with how many times Wellbeck gave the ball away.

    Tactically it was a choice between Rooney & RVP. He may have got that wrong but I'd probably go for RVP on current form.

    Brap, brap, old chap.

    Rooney isn't an outstanding player anymore. He's still very good (on his day) but he's not undroppable. He's living off his reputation quite a lot now.

    If hes not gone this summer, he will be gone next year. Certainly better players than him have had less of a drop in form and been shoved out of the door.

    When did people start thinking he's not as good, a few months ago people were saying he could be world class in midfield too.

    He'll come back into form I'm sure.

    If last night did prove one thing, it's that Mourinho is definitely keeping his options open with regards to going to United. All very carefully choreographed.

    He might not even be the best now ;) Fantastic manager, but do you really think he is better than Mourinho?
    The success he had at Porto (low budget compared to united) winning the UEFA Cup and the Champions League in 2 seasons, then continuing to be successful in every club he has been at, plus that amazing 10 year League record where he never lost at home.
    Theyre close but I think Mourinho has the edge.

    I know they beat 10-men United, but it felt like Mourinho was really confident they will go through
