OK folks, refereeing forum remember …

Back on topic, his comments seem genuine to me, and he has done same in previous games. It looked a clear penalty to me, and let's face it had that been Cardiff not given the decision could you imagine Warnock's reaction?

Exactly. This result was crucial for promotion, even more crucial than the result against Chelsea for Warnock where he did that weird stare at the officials. It’s a shame because Warnock’s almost been praised for it and wasn’t punished, yet the positive comments about the ref haven’t been touched upon in the slightest by anyone

Sadly for Bielsa, and regardless of his future achievements, he has tainted his copybook with the Spygate saga. It may of gone on for years in various forms but he seemed to take it to another level of complexity and snideness. No doubt referees were studies too, who knows....His continuation too to not of learned any semblance of English language in public at least so far may also be unique in our country.
Speaking as a Blade, his press conferences are generally strange and an uncomfortable watch / listen as what seems like a very educated man tries to fumble his way through sometimes loaded question. I praise him though for the referee comments. Many years ago we had one a little bit similar Danny Begara who's English improved but it was always a struggle to conflate two footballing cultures.
