It might be called “The Stadium of Light” but yesterday, it might habe been a bit to dark as the referee made so many dubious, strange and (who else should I call them?) questionable decisions. Did he understand them by himself or did he just think: “Oh, my first decision was quite dumb, but as it is embarrassing already, I just keep going … who cares…”
It was a dirty play by Benfica. The whole game was quite strange. And yes, Babbel mustn’t do what he’s done, but … Honestly? If I was in his situation? It was just an action out of frustration. So, yes, it was stupid and imprudent, but I don’t feel sorry for this. I fact, both should have been send off. Babbel’s not the villain. UEFA should think about the refs, because this one wasn’t fit. He made load of mistakes. And there were load of mistakes in lot of matches in the past, it’s getting worse and worse with every single match. There has to be something to do about that!
The Reds started well and thanks to Agger’s early and brilliant goal, it could be our night. It could be a night to remember. But … two no-penalties given to Benfica and Torres’ denied goal ruined the night for all of us. It’s not a terrible result, but … Anybody should answer this “but” for himself, I think.
And Benfica got all the fredom to tackle and to kick and foul! Sorry, but it was so obvious and nobody can’t argue about that.
I was watching the match in a pub and it wasn’t easy, among all those Wolfsburg and HSV fans, to see our team being deprived of the victory. Well, luckilyI got drunk and it didn’t hurt so much yesterday. But today … oh, yes, this 2:1 defeat does hurt a lot.
Next week Benfica is coming to Anfield. I’m sure we’ll destroy them beautifully. As we must, actually …
