Cardiff manager Neil Warnock: "I don't know how we lost the game, let alone 3-1. I called Manuel over and said 'how are we losing 3-0?' And he said: 'I don't know who you are?'.

The missing three words of the quote?

Disagree with those posters that say it was a good oppo's view.
Sure, they are well written, balanced and in the main accurate.
But I don't want that.
I want angry as feck, biased and venomous posts where you can smell the bile dripping from the page.

Outside it looks superb, go past it enough times on the train, just when you get inside to watch the game you love it all goes very wrong...

Having watched the highlights on MOTD I do think it was a penalty, OK a bit soft but Marko did barge him from behind, which was a bit silly as he was going away from goal.

Also there is no way their goal should have stood, can you imagine if it was de Gea being blocked off like that? You wouldn't hear the last of it.

Ah, fair enough. That makes a lot more sense and was what I had thought at first (that it was us singing).

From the other side however it sounded like it was their lot.

I'm down in 112 next to the away fans, they started singing 'It's coming home' presumably in an attempt to mock English fans... our lot sang it back to them after they missed the pen and then after each goal too.

I'm assuming that is what Manuel actually said. Warnock just heard the first bit.

I sit near the dugout and "Colin" got in the ear of the 4th official all evening, every time decisions went against him, nearly all fair he was raving. And as E17 says, he looks like he has been mummified.

Agreed, at the time I was one of many shouting for offside but on watching it on TV I can see that 3 others were offside but the guy who was fouled wasn't. It was "clever" play in that he shielded the ball and stopped running, causing Arnie to run into his back, then the guy fell over to make sure the ref noticed. A soft one to give away.

Having watched it on TV I can't believe that in this day and age the officials didn't give a foul as keepers are normally a protected species.

I shouted Penalty in real time and that Arnautovic was a div for making such a clumsy challenge like that in our box with the player heading away from goal.

Right in front of us Defo a pen. But why was Arnie 'defending' in our box anyway? Keep out in future please Arnie. Save your energy for the other end of the pitch.

I don't think that anyone near me doubted that it was a penalty, most thought that the guy was offside.

They had two or three standing offside in the middle of the box but Hoilett came from outside the box and was played on by 4 or 5 of ours as the header came forward.

Clumsy from Arnautovic but Hoilett didn't need a lot of asking to go down. Hopefully learnt our lesson ahead of Zaha's visit this week.
