Barca 5 Shaktar 1 - should be enough to go through. Silly goal Barca conceded, what was Iniesta doing to get booked?

It was more a case of what he wasn't doing, Scotman.

My refereeing experience might have been at a much lower level but even I know that failing to immediately retreat 10 yards from the ball at a free kick (thus unfairly giving defenders time to organise themselves, and to mark opponents) constitutes 'ungentlemanly conduct' and thus merits a caution.

Chris, would you have booked Crouch for his two sliding, non contact tackles?
I didn't see the match but I've just taken a look at the second incident. Even if there was no intent to commit a foul, "lunging at Sergio Ramos like a kamikaze Cossack dancer" (to quote from 'The Guardian') showed a complete disregard for the safety of his opponent, which could reasonably be construed as 'ungentlemanly conduct':
No chance of getting his red card overuled then?

We need the lanky streak of p!ss for the next leg when Real Madrid play 6 defenders to stop us scoring 5 goals!
