Re the Terry red card:

I can’t see how people are saying it is a clear red.

It hardly constitutes violent conduct. The reaction of Sanchez more than anything influences the colour of the card.

Now, don’t get me wrong, it was utterly moronic to do it. But some context helps understand a bit more.

If you watch the game on replay, Sanchez clearly backs into Terry a few times to prevent Terry getting around him and playing at the ball. This is a clear foul that isn’t picked up once by the officials. I am fairly certain Terry’s knee was to let Sanchez know that he is there, and won’t put up with it, if the officials won’t do their job.

Generally a referee sets the tone of the game by what he will/won’t let players get away with, and if those sort of fouls aren’t picked up, Terry really shouldn’t have expected more than a yellow for his actions.

It hardly constitutes violent conduct. Unsportsmanlike, definitely, but not violent. It definitely qualifies more idiotic conduct.

The final is now ruined by the fact that Chelsea have no defenders left. Ivanovic and Terry Suspended, potentially Cahill and luiz stil injurrd. They will be lining up with Essien and Drogba in central defence.

More fun for Bayern to be had. Kind of funny how the ONLY financially healthy club in the entire Euro league is in the finals, with a good chance of winning.

Didn't catch all of the first half, but it certainly looked like Sir Alex was playing for a scoreless draw from kickoff.

Absolutely were. The team he sent out there says it all.

The saving grace is that Newcastle is not going to be a pushover for City.

The only shame this morning was that both teams survived with full rosters of uninjurred players.

It was an awful game but City deserved the win.

It's pretty much over now. It would be a spectacular collapse if they let the title slip away now.

I, for one, welcome our new Emirati overlords.

it would take an epic collapse at this point. you could tell by the way united played the second half that they knew it was out of their hands as well. it was almost as if the thought of having to close an 8 goal gap in a game and a half zapped them of all energy.
