I had my own mini say on Cardiff City manager Neil Warnock’s choice of words to deflect from his sides clod happy tactical approach to games earlier following Tottenham Hotspur’s clash against them at the weekend.
Joe Ralls saw red for his clinical and cynical challenge on Lucas Moura as Cardiff tried to ensure they at least won when it came to the foul column, a normal tactic for any Warnock team it must be said, but his words post game, where he attempted to completely deflect everything on to Harry Kane, was seen as a step too far by many.
He’s not the first manager to open themselves up to claims of ‘distorting the truth’ to give a fresh angle to a defeat and he certainly won’t be the last – Warnock is, however, one of the few men in football to it a weekly basis.
Some like that, I don’t and it’s only football so maybe ‘fake news’ doesn’t matter as much as it does in the real world that accepts Donald Trump as President other than simply a village idiot.
Thankfully, it appears the following fans agree and there are a couple I can’t publish.
Warnock regularly lacks class. Didn’t mention the penalty we should have been given, did he!

The man who said he prefers being in the championship, Cardiff fans must be so proud of him, a defeat is never his or his teams fault , can’t stand the man to be fair

Warncock won’t last the season and he’ll get his wish to return to the championship ????

Let him dig…there's no better centre forward in the world! Fact!

Warnock needs to look more closely to home. Should be having a word with his own player for trying to break Mouras leg! If the roles were reversed he’d be the first one kicking off!

He's just showing everyone what they already knew. That he's he's a classless, hypocritical rent-a-quote manager
