Barcelona huffed and puffed their way to a 1-0 away victory over Celta Vigo in La Liga this evening, with the hosts ending the evening with ten men on the field for the last few minutes.

Fabian Orellana was the man to be shown the 87th-minute red for the heinous crime of lobbing a handful of loose turf at Sergio Busquets…


Red card? We’d be more inclined to give him full marks for accuracy!

    Im just shocked he stayed on his feet.

  2. Mulderre AGAIN! says:

    This reminds me of George Best in a Home International in 1970. He was so annoyed with the referee that he thew mud to the ref and the man in black send him off (with a nasty stain in the shirt). Glorious!

  3. Jarren says:

    And still he goes down like a sack thrown off the back of a coal lorry.

    Here’s a tip, why not pick up the offending grass and show it to the ref, saying “hey ref, he just flung this piece of grass at me”

    He’ll still get sent off, but you’ll look like less of a c*nt, Sergio.

    So much this ^ he falls over from being hit by a bit of grass? How on earth can he head the ball and remain alive?!

  5. Tomtom says:

    Did he just duck down oder did he really fall down after that?
