Ovrebo scandal

Being a united fan, I actually feared Chelsea more than Barcelona this season and wanted Chelsea to lose. What happened during this game though, arguably the biggest scandal in football history. Can anyone think of a referring performance as bad as Ovrebo that night?

He has come out recently to say he wished he had VAR that night, which is admirable I suppose. Looking back, that night really stank of fraud and corruption- I do wonder if we would ever find out the real truth.

It is all down to a primitive brain reaction.
When two sets of rival fans watch the same game, in the frontal and subcortical regions of the brain – including areas known to be active in reward, self-identity and control of movement – there is a correlation between supporters of the same team, but significant differences between the groups. This is what allows fans of rival teams to develop a different understanding of the same game.

An example:

During the 2018 World Cup, when England played Colombia, English fans complained loudly about the number of fouls called against their team. Meanwhile, in South America, a formal petition was circulated demanding a rematch because of what Colombian fans felt was clear bias against their team by the referees.

So all that happened is Chelsea fans and the English (basically everyone apart from the only non-biased person - me) saw it as Chelsea being cheated. But simple psychological studies prove that your viewpoint is in fact incorrect and suggests that I am the only one with a valid viewpoint on the game itself.

Blows me away that anyone can watch the premier league and walk away thinking that there isn't a clear bias toward the bigger clubs.

Rattin getting sent off for 'violence of the tongue' despite the ref not speaking Spanish was a particularly special moment

i think switching the location of the semi final from Liverpool 2 London without telling the Portogese until a few hours b4 kickoff so they hade too travel across hole country instead of preparing.

England 'strangely' had stayed in London the hole time

That’s interesting. Is that true?

The 2012 game was as good a karma as you’re going to get. 0 - 2 down, 10 men, conceded a penalty, then Torres manages to score from a punt up pitch just to really crush their spirits.

Beautiful night.
