The contrast was mildly depressing so the Malaga man being booked made my night. Schmelzer barely even touched him and he went down clutching his face, refs don't penalise that bull**** anywhere near enough.
    That's not true. There was fair bit of contact. Obviously not enough for the player to go down clutching his face, then look up and see the referee coming and the crowd around him and then go down again clutching his face.

    You could say he deserved to be booked for simulation though many player do that these days and get away, but the weird part of that decision was that Schmelzer got away? He clearly lost his temper and did something stupid deliberately.

    I think both of them are on Par with Juve and United. PSG probably in and around that too with the way they have been organized under Ancelotti. Though slightly lower than these 4.

    No way PSG are on the same level as Real or Dortmund.

    I dunno, I would have to see it again and cbf.

    It annoys me when players hold onto the ball like that. It's too easy to take time out of the game when you're winning in football, there's a whole art form to making a goal kick take 3 minutes. Rugby is just miles ahead on that kind of thing- if you touch the ball at all after it's awarded to the other team you're penalised, and the clock freezes when the ball goes out of play for any length of time.

    Not on the same level probably, but don't think they are that far off either. Would have been interesting had they drawn Dortmund.

    Yeah, agreed. Particularly frustrating is the referees who forget that actually the extra time announced is a minimum. Two goals were scored in extra time, and yet the referee is happy to blow the whistle at 94:04 after four minutes was announced. I'm fairly sure there was a good minute and a half of non-playing time right there.

    Yeah, agree with this but still shouldn't be doing what Schmelzer did.

    Agree with this too.

    I'm starting to come round to the idea that football should be 2 halves of 30 minutes with the clock stopping when the ball isn't in play.

    Been saying something similar for a fair while.

    How often is the ball actually "in play" in an average game?

    You should watch the arab teams play (clubs or countries). They are disgraceful at it. They fall at every opportunity and take an age to take any throw-in/goal-kick/free-kick, etc. It hasn't gotten that bad in Europe but they should really do it like Rugby, as you say.
