Who do UEFA hate English teams?

Everyone knows that they are pissed that we won it. If you look at the trophy celebration, most of the UEFA staff look miserable and then you look at when Barcelona won it. Smiles all round!

I've also heard of match fixing in the latter stages of the Champions League. They heat the English balls up, so when they pull Barcelona / Real Madrid out of the hat, they go for a heated ball. Obviously just a superstition. Their was also that matter of the FA not granting us a few days rest when we had fixture congestion. Is it Chelsea or English Football in general?

My only though is that, they think the only reason why we're successful is because of a rich owner. I can see Man City getting the same treatment though.

Opinions?

I dont think a rich owner is the reason, because Platini is obviously a big fan of PSG. It might be the way we played, because lets be honest, that wasn't a enjoyable show for 300 milion people who whe're watching. And also because of the fact that we screwed Spurs up. However it is quite epic, it is still unfair.

It would seem that Platini, along with the rest of the continental contingent, have a distorted view of English clubs as having no poise or elan, relying exclusively on heart and passion to carry them to trophies rather than beautiful football. I'm sure it isn't just Chelsea (and, in the future, Man City) who are subjected to this treatment, I remember the same distaste from UEFA when it became clear that two English teams would be competing for the title back in 2008.

I am not sure that they hate us, I think it more fear that we become more powerful than them (as in the EPL) , unfortunately we got an incrediibly weak FA who wouldn't have a clue how to stand up to UEFA and FIFA and all there ludicrious decisions

I've heard they actually mechanically narrow the goals into which Chelsea are playing. Didn't work though, did it?

Corruption and match fixing in top flight football is a hot topic at the moment given what is coming to light in the Italian game.

Could you expand on this please I haven't heard much in football as I've been at work for the past 10 days!

"I remember the same distaste from UEFA when it became clear that two English teams would be competing for the title back in 2008."

Which probably accounts for the appointment of Ovrebo for the semi in 2009.
