Chelsea conspiracy theorists still reeling from referee Tom Henning Ovrebo’s performance in the Champions League defeat to Barcelona have got a new line of attack after it emerged that Uefa’s official website predicted the 1-1 result.
A test live match report on the site correctly predicted the correct score and that Barca would grab a late winner. And the site mysteriously knew three of the four Chelsea players who picked up yellow cards as Didier Drogba, Michael Ballack and Alex were all booked in both dummy run and real thing.
It is a nice story, but any Blues fans buying into this might like to consider the following: if the match was rigged to be 1-1 would they not just have the test match report say 2-0 to Chelsea or something? Or maybe it was a secret code to the referee to let him know what the score had to be!
