Oliver leaves Warnock wanting more

Oliver leaves Warnock wanting more

Watford might have whacked Warnock`s Palace for 4 in the 7-goal FA Cup thriller but the Eagles gaffer still reckons ref Michael Oliver cost his side a place in the velvet bag for Round 5!

Impressive strikes by Rasiak, Cork, Demerit and Hoskins as well as one hell of a late fightback by the south Londoners have all been overshadowed by Warnock`s bleating about the poor state of officiating - once again.

Speaking after seeing his troops dumped squarely dumped out of the cup, Warnock quickly turned on the 23 year old official for ruling out a Jose Fonte header when his side were on the end of a 3 goal deficit.

The Eagles chief slammed "The disallowed goal was a disgrace. There was no push and you didn`t know then that it could have mattered - It was 4-1 at the time but if that stands we could have had a draw".

He fumed "I find it difficult to understand how they give referees Championship football at 23…I don`t see how they can have the understanding of the game at that age….I was hoping for a Premier League referee today".

Good news is most match reports suggest Warnock`s waste of air space does little to hide the fact that Watford were worthy winners indeed.

Still Warnock wouldn`t be Warnock without moaning about something.

What a complete knob this guy is! consistant with all the crap that he comes out with every week, Face facts you idiot, your team were poor right from the start and if you can not get them motivated anymore, i think you should call it a day.

It's his 2nd moan at refs in 2 games - they lost 4-1 to Ipswich last weekend and still Warnock reckoned they were robbed. No Neil - you're defense are just sh@@.
