Warnock: Sending Off Was Right Decision

Warnock: Sending Off Was Right Decision

Crystal Palace manager Neil Warnock believes the referee made the correct decision in sending off Albert Serran in today's 0-0 draw at the Liberty Stadium.

The Spanish defender was shown a straight red early on in the first half for what looked like a nothing challenge, but Warnock told BBC Sport it was for an elbow:

'It was for violent conduct,''

'The lad won the ball, but you only have to look at Neil Danns' lip to see that he caught him with his elbow.

'Neil was the villain of the pantomime, but I thought it was the right decision.

'Swansea fought really hard throughout the game and it was no surprise they tired in the last 15 minutes when their 'keeper (Dorus deVries) made some good saves.

'Sometimes it is more difficult to play against 10 men, but we tried to go out for the win and could have done it in the closing minutes.

'I'm really disappointed because we had the opportunity to take all three points.''

This is rich from Warnock, someone who slates referees at the drop of a hat when it doesn't go his way. I've seen the incident again and Serran clearly doesn't intentionally touch the Palace player. The referee is influenced by the play-acting. This wasn't an isolated incident, there were loads of decisions that went against the Swans--the Pintado penalty claim was the most blatant. Sometimes referees don't like some sides--obviously this one was biased--no question. What I would like to say though is well played Swans---great result under very difficult circumstances.

Throughout the year refs have made some very poor decisions. I think the time has come for a TV official. Let's be honest here, people say there would be too much time wasted, but no the time wasted are the arguements that ensue because everyone see's something else... Hey, a Red Card, or Goal will ultimately change the game, I'd rather a few moments than see any club hard-done-by for a bad choice. BTW Extra on-pitch officals DONT work, they actually cause MORE mistakes, again recent TV showed the up recently but no names menioned - One excuse could be even more fan intimidation, who knows.

why does Warnock always insist on stirring things up? everybody who's seen the incident can see its clearly not a sending off, so whats he trying to achieve, maybe somehow thinking he has the power to stop the decision being overturned? the incident happened and it benefitted his team, why can't he just be happy with a large slice of luck thats earned his team a point.
