I think Drogba's penalty calls are weak, but I do think the handball with Pique was a stick on penalty.
I also think Ballack & Drogba should be banned for a long time for their pathetic displays. Passion is needed yes, but they are professional sportsmen.
I don't know how Ballack prevented himself from doing a nasty injury to the ref after the Eto handball.
Ballack is one of the best players in the world. He has come close to winning the biggest prizes (the world cup and the CL) but never won either. Time is running out. He played incredibly professionally last night, I thought, and yet saw Chelsea denied a CL final place from a refereeing performance that you could not call professional, in the normal sense of the word. Simply, the referee has cheated Ballack and all the others from going to a CL final, perhaps their best/last chance to win the CL. If I was Ballack, I'd be might angry with the referee. Wouldn't you?

If I was Ballack, I would count myself lucky I was even on the pitch last night. He should have been sent off in the first leg for two yellows - how he didnt get sent off for the blatant block in the first leg!
Why dont we discuss that? Or are Chelsea conveniently forgetting all the decisions that went in their favour over the two legs?
I still think they needed to keep their heads.
Like when God, I mean Cantona karate kicked Mathew Simmons, his emotion got the better of him that I understand but it still does not make it right.
No the cheating scumbag deserves all he gets remember last season when he held down Ronaldo in the penalty area?
Short memory syndrome again
