No one's really questioning that it was a good goal. Yes the defence was a bit confused, but that was because Chelsea's break was so decisive. Yes, Drogba should really have broken the back of the net, but he did enough, and that's fine.

No, you have a problem distinguishing fouling, which is part of the game, from deliberate cheating, which isn't. Or are you going to suggest that Chelsea didn't foul anyone? Both teams committed fouls, as all teams do. One team stopped the game regularly to allow themselves catch up. The other didn't.
Somehow, when Chelsea win Barca are always the better team.
That's because they are. Barca are better than Arsenal too, dodgy sending off in Champions league matches notwithstanding. I can admit that, but you can't admit it about Chelsea.
