All referees hate Van Persie

UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE 2010-2011 round of 16:
Barcelona - Arsenal, 3 - 1. Camp Nou, Barcelona, Spain, 2011-03-08

Busacca seemed a little nervous before the match, joking with Fabregas in the dug out. Busacca always looks a little nervous, but that's his style. But his nervosity seems to stick to the match as well. It was a nervous match.

report
It's behind this one (look for it in the little box to your right), our reporter Mooazrt's report. I agree with him and he said it all. And I'll stick to what we have said many times before: Busacca is a 7. Good, but....

Van Persie
Van Persie kicked Messi, thus, a little later on, Abidal grabbed Van Persie at his throat while the ref wasn't looking and of course a few minutes later Van Persie took revenge on a Barca player. Everyone knows he would do that. You give him a punch when the ref isn't looking and he will foul openly and get booked. I'm sure not even Chinese gambling syndicates let you put money on that.
And then he takes a shot at goal after Busacca has whistled for off-side and gets his second yellow. What a jerk. Didn't he do that at the World Cup as well? A whole nation holding it's breath.
Sure, Busacca could have let it go, it could be possible Van Persie didn't hear the whistle and a big name like Busacca can always bend the rules a little. It would have been a better match.
But it's a fact: all referees hate Van Persie. And it's Van Persie's responsibility to do something about it. To change his ways. Man! Grow up!

and
There was a bit of a fight, normally referees move back and watch, they don't have to bring the peace, captains do that. The ref has to see what happens, who hit who. But Busacca didn't stand back, he joined the fight, tried to pull them apart, and by doing so, he missed what happened.
