Will there be a retrospective ban for Jose after all his self-indulgent charges down the touchline?

Simeone should get a lifetime touchline ban (or at the least a full season of European football) for entering the field of play to try and have a fight with an opposition teams player, the fact it took ages to get him off the pitch should be taken into account.

Sprinting down the touchline after the match is a crime now? How long after the match did he do it? They should throw the book at Simeone, though.

Charging Alonso for celebrating with his team-mates after the match is ridiculous. That being said, it's equally ridiculous to suggest that players shouldn't be suspended for picking up too many yellow cards. Granted, referees are a bit too inclined to give yellow cards for fairly innocuous fouls but that's a different issue. If you don't want to be suspended for the final, play clean. Simple.

How much longer do we have to endure this ridiculous policy of banning players from the final after accruing yellow cards? It's funny if it's John Terry, admittedly, but everyone ought to get to play in what could easily turn out to be a once-in-a-lifetime match and career pinnacle. Alonso ran down the touchline to celebrate with his teammates whom he toiled with all season to get to that point. No one was harmed by this incident.

That picture reminds me of that part in the match when Simeone ran up to the ref to say, "FIVE hundred dollars for this watch. This watch is worth FIVE times that. FIVE!"

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
