Once again, Barcelona are gifted a penalty that should not have counted.

At least Atletico can still manage to win without getting penalties they actually deserve.
How was that penalty even vaguely debatable?

How could it possibly not be a penalty? His hand was way out and it hitting his hand is what deflected it away from Neymar's path and stopped him putting it into the net.

Manchester United sometimes you need to stop being so biased :lol:

I know it's painful Messi overshadowing your idol Ronny boy.

A very sub-par performance from Madrid last night, the scoreline is just a reflection on how poor Rayo were. We'll need to be a lot better against Dortmund.

Barca win thanks to a dubious penalty. Hardly atypical but frustrating nonetheless. Still, the quality of refereeing is so poor in La Liga you can't really make a case for a conspiracy. It's just sheer incompetence. Atletico, unsurprisingly, grind out another win.

The title, much though it pains me to say it, seems a distant dream now. And La Decima will be a struggle too.

But we beat on, boats back against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.

From a side angle it looks like the ball touched his hand.But it doesnt actually.straight on the chest.

Okay fair enough. I didn't see the game live, I based my opinion on the side-angle and my friend (who is a plastic barca fan) - he said it wasn't a penalty.

The Costa- Pique battle was short lived, with both being injured. Early reports suggest 4 weeks out for both.

Let me guess, the tie was the most interesting 90mins of football you've ever seen. Seemed like it was going to be such a **** tie tbh. Didn't fail to disappoint in both matches.

Atlético to go through as well. How many of their team are suspended now. Saw that 5 players on their team got carded, even their substitute got yellow carded :rofl:

Also how has Diego Ribas been?

Barcelona transfer ban: Fifa issues 14-month sanction

Spanish champions Barcelona have been given a 14-month transfer ban by Fifa for breaking rules on signing international players under 18.
The Catalan club cannot buy or sell players until the summer of 2015 after the world governing body imposed a transfer ban for the next two windows.
They have also been fined 450,000 Swiss Francs (£305,000).
Fifa has also sanctioned the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) for the same breaches.
The RFEF has been given a fine of 500,000 Swiss Francs (£340,000) and told to "regularise [its] regulatory framework and existing system concerning the international transfer of minors in football" within a year.
More to follow.

That is huge huge news. Barca will obviously appeal it. They're lucky it's two transfer windows and not 2 summer transfer windows. If they can appeal it and be able to use this summer transfer window, even if they lose the appeal and are banned for two windows they could be fine (since you fix any issues in the squad).

Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone: ''I apologize to Cristiano Ronaldo and Sergio Ramos that I laughed on their statement after El Classico. Tonight I've realized that I was mistaken. Neymar is an actor, not a Footballer


Along with the Neymar scandal, the transfer ban shows what a corrupt, cheating scum bag of a club barca is.

He didn't, Pistol is making things up again like he does so often. The original quote is, "Diving is his characteristic, like Alexis Sanchez did when I coached him at River Plate. This part of his game lets him down." But goal.com is the only source for this, so I doubt Simeone even said that. He rarely complains about players.

If you want FIFA to do their job properly, add a few other clubs to the list as well, not only from la liga. What about Brahim Abdelkader to Man City for example? I am led to believe that his parents didn't move to Manchester with him for non-footballing reasons either (which is the reason that got Barça into trouble). If we dig a little, I'm sure we'll find examples of this at most clubs, including a number of Premier League ones.

But then what players in the RM academy are you referring to? Right now I can't really think of any examples, from the top of my head at least. Although I agree RM must be investigated as well, especially since the investigator in Barça's case is Pedro Lopez Jiménez, a former RM vice president. :rolleyes: Explains why Barça got picked for this even though La Masia probably offers the best living standard, access to education etc of all canteras. Which, of course, doesn't justify breaking the rules, but it poses the question of why an investigation was started out of the blue against Barça's youth system of all clubs... That said, there are a number of loopholes in the rules that aren't hard to figure out. Speaks for the Barça management once again that they didn't. Luckily, this will be the last straw to get them out.

Anyway, if rules were broken, then the club must be sanctioned, no question about it. But this applies for so many clubs in the top European leagus, so if FIFA is serious about this, several clubs should & must be banned.

And wrt the summer window, I am quite sure ter Stegen & Halilovic deals will get through and there will even be time for a couple of more signings. The appeal won't be decided on so quickly.
