'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Pique In 'Arsene Wenger Mode'!

We witnessed possibly the most incompetent ever refereeing display yesterday night at Stamford Bridge. And while I'm happy that we face Barcelona instead of a stronger Chelsea side, I admitted feeling a little sorry for Hiddink and co.

And I was greatly amused by Gerard Pique's comments after the game, as he was doing his best Arsene Wenger impression when talking about the penalties which should have been awarded to Chelsea.

'I can understand Chelsea can be disappointed about the performance of the referee. I didn't see the penalty claims.'

Oh, he didn't see the incident! Well, on one occasion a certain Mr. Pique beat the ball away with his hand, surely he did see that? He did: he claims he did not intend to use his hand. All right but this business about not seeing the others... as a centre-back who was only a few feet away from all the incident inside the box, he surely must have seen at least Abidal's tug on Drogba's shirt...

Still, I'm happy that we face a Barcelona side who have a vulnerable defence and seem to lack a Plan B. Pique didn't play a big part in last season's march to the Champions League final but in Rome, he'll have a long, tough night, I hope.

The same Arsene Wenger that said that Fletcher shouldn't have been sent off and United outclassed Arsenal over 2 legs?? Grow up.

Happy with Barcelona-I think Chelsea would have come too soon (after Moscow) and they'd have been fired up.

Haha this is funny. I find Arsene's famous comeback 'I didn't see it' hilarious because its a great way to protect his players. Pique takes this to a new extreme! Maybe he didn't see his handball, but I'm sure he felt it lol.
