Wigan Athletic Vs West Ham United at the JJB turned out to be a little controversial, there was the Carlton Cole sending off, for what no one knows, the Lucas Neill none sending off, how he didn`t go no one knows and then Lee Cattermoles sending off which no one could argue with.
There was an awful display of refereeing from Stuart Attwell, he is bad and there was an awful display from the Latics, so what did the bosses make of it, well lets find out.
Latics boss Steve Bruce:
'The game was ruined as a spectacle. Carlton Cole shouldn't have been sent off. Referee, use a bit of common sense. It had the makings of a decent game but how he sends someone off in the first half for something as petulant as that I don't know.
'Lucas Neill should have been off the pitch for his tackle, which was horrific. I have no complaints about Cattermole, he was stupid and silly but he was incensed - and he has a good right to be.
'I feel a bit sorry for him because in my opinion Mr Attwell is not ready to step up to the plate.'
West Ham boss Gianfranco Zola:
'We have to understand the referee is a human being and can make mistakes. He needs our support. You can have a bad day but we need to support them as they are here to help the game.
'Neither of Carlton Cole's challenges were bad tackles at all. Cattermole's was a bad tackle on Parker, as was Lucas Neill's on Cattermole. Lucas wanted to go for the ball, he caught the man but it was a bad tackle.
'We are very serious about Europe, as we proved today. The players love what they are doing, they're enjoying their football and as a manager I feel lucky.'
