Barça don't need help from the referees, but at least be fair with us!!! >> Read My Mind


Iniesta: 'I hope they take that yellow card away. I didn’t dive, they brought me down, it was a penalty. Thankfully it played no part in the outcome of the game'

Xavi: 'This year it seems as if the referees' decisions have gone more against us. It's a fact, everyone can see the evidence. Maybe last year it may have been the other way round. It's all just a part of the job'

Alves: 'The referees? We just have to focus on our own game and getting over all the problems we might face. When we are at our best, any decision by a ref isn't going to have any effect. Excuses are not something that winning teams should use – and we are a winning team'

Guardiola: 'FC Barcelona normally don’t appeal these things, but we will on this one. We’ll definitely appeal Iniesta’s yellow card'

- I am proud to see how our players and coach try to avoid talking about the referees' decisions. I understand it's a difficult job which depends on making crucial judgements within fractions of a second.

Having said that, it seems as if the spirit of Mourinho and Florentino's millions keep floating around Spanish football. It really feels as if, in case of doubt, tricky decisions must go in Madrid's favour. Maybe the new Spanish President, who just appointed a self-proclaimed 'Madridista hooligan' as the Sports Minister has something to do with it?

Please note, I'm not saying Barça aren't leading La Liga because of the referees. But you can't deny it isn't helping: Madrid at Mallorca, Barça at Espanyol, Barça at Getafe, Barça at Valencia.. Shall I continue?!??!?

I wonder what Mourinho The Portuguese Whiner would be saying if his team had been attacked in such a clear, coward way...

BARÇA DON'T NEED ANY HELP FROM THE REFEREES, BUT AT LEAST DON'T HARM OUR CHANCES!!!!
