Personally i take the opposite view and that referees are scared to punish EPL teams because of the massive PR power of the english. Often they get away with little things. Having said that i feel Barcelona though not necessarily favoured are given everything were refs would otherwise overlook things. Every tackle which is a bit ott against them is blown, every penalty that could be overlooked the ref awards etc but otherwise they dont get calls manufactured out of thin air like some allege

This is still funny though :lol: :lol:

the fact about Barcelona, they are a good team, and noone alleges they get penalties out of thin air, the thing is they are guaranteed a big decision in big games, if its a 50-50 it will be a red, if its in the box, its a penalty
Big decisions in big games, usually when Barca is on the backfoot

This season in CL we will come back to this thread and discuss something big :thumbs:

Refereeing last week in La Liga was shambolic. Barcelona were losing to Eibar until they "equalised" after Castro received and crossed the ball to Suarez from an offside position.

Image

Then the same day Celta Vigo lost to Real Madrid in a match they dominated after the referee sent off Gustavo Cabral of Celta for dissent. The Celta players were understandably furious that the ref had not given them a penalty then a few seconds later gave Madrid a very soft "free kick".

Now there is a match fixing scandal involving a linesman: http://www.theguardian.com/football/201 ... tch-fixing

The standard of "refereeing" in La Liga is absolutely horrendous. It borders on criminal conspiracy (with Real Madrid and Barcelona especially). Playing against those teams must be like being in a boxing match with a corrupt referee. The referee most times acts as their 12th man (as if they needed any help given how much talent they have). I was scandalised by the 'refereeing' in Real's match against Real Sociedad:

*Firstly Sociedad were denied a stonewall penalty when Pepe made one of his trademark thuggish "challenges" on Jonathan.

*A few minutes later Benzema tripped over a blade of grass in the Sociedad box, and the ref gave a very soft penalty. Ronaldo blasted the penalty over the bar, so the ref decided to let him have another try! Still in the first half, Bale crossed the ball and it hit Carlos Martinez (at point blank range) and richocheted up onto his arm. The ref awarded a "penalty" that was even worse than the first one. Ronaldo scored this time.

*In the second half Pepe did another one of his 'contract hit' challenges in the box (on Jonathan again) that nearly snapped Jonathan in two. The ref (of course) refused to award a penalty.

*Sociedad had two players stretchered off as well.

The Sociedad chairman was so incensed by the referee (Jose Luis Gonzalez) that he told him at half time: “This is shameful. You have come here to rob us, I will be filing a complaint to the police.”

This is the second consecutive Real Madrid game where refereeing has turned the game into a farce. They won their last game against Rayo Vallecano 10-2 after the ref sent off two Rayo players and made them play with 9 men for most of the game against Ronaldo, Bale, Benzema, Rodriguez, Modric, Kroos et al. After that game Rayo Vallecano's manager Paco Jemez said the officiating brought “shame on Spanish football”.

Hey, wiseone why don´t you keep us updated? Your comment on Chelsea - Everton? City - Everton earlier this week?

But then what would one expect from the EPL where this is offside

Barcelona awarded 3 penalties yesterday against Sporting Gijon. Only one of the three was valid. The worst part was that a Gijon player was red carded for the third penalty which wasn't a foul, let a lone a penalty or card. The commentator called it a "Penalty Fest". How apt.

Playing against Barca must be utterly demoralising for opposing Spanish teams. As well as facing 3 of the best 4 players on earth, they have to contend with bandit "refereeing". The "refereeing" in the Valencia v Barca game was so bad it bordered on match fixing. Barca took the lead after Messi "scored" from a shot that went through the legs of Suarez who was standing in an offside position in front of the Valencia GK on the edge of the 6 yard box - blocking the view of the GK Diego Alves. Suarez actually jumped over the ball from his offside position and the ref somehow deemed he was not interfering with play. :shock: He even booked the Valencia GK for daring to protest.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TvGmEQH2gJg

He then failed to red card Busquets for a second bookable offence, and denied Valencia three blatant penalties - but conveniently found time to award an injury time 92nd minute penalty for Barca, which of course they scored to win the game 3-2.
