In the last 2 nights we have seen 2 debatable sending offs in the Champions League Semi-Finals.
Darren Fletcher vs Arsenal and Eric Abidal vs Chelsea.
As a resullt both players will miss the Champions League Final.

So why can't UEFA sit down in the next few days and look into both incidents,
then make a decision on whether or not to overturn the Red Cards?

IMO, both sending offs were Wrong and I think a lot of you would agree.
I think this Rule of being unable to appeal a Red Card in Europe,
only under the circumstances of " mistaken identity " is Wrong.

I think both players and teams were hard done by and it's only fair both should compete in the Final.

Anyone got any thoughts?

I agree. Lets change the UEFA rules to suit United and Barca. :rolleyes:

NO.

Maybe look at changing the rules AFTER the final, ready for next season.
That i will definatly agree with and so would just about every club and all supporters.:thumbsup:

They should put this in place for the future season, but they shouldnt bring it in now. Im a big fan of fletcher he does very well in europe for us, but id rather they loose abidal for the match!

I know they're NOT going to change anything now.
But what i'm saying is they can and they should look into both incidents.
Then they should give a final decision.

Don't get me wrong i'm delighted Abidal is missing the Final because he's a big player for Barca,
but I just feel that both players are missing one of the biggest games of their career, because of a bad decision.

Hopefully the Rule will be changed in the future.
