Craig Mackail-Smith hit a brace, opening the scoring in the first half from the spot, but missed another penalty 15 minutes from time with the game tied at 2-2.

Poyet was already irked by the visitors' first goal, claiming Luke Varney had dived in the box, and felt Michael Brown, whose deflected shot earned Neil Warnock's team a share of the spoils, was lucky to stay on the pitch.

But he saved his wrath first for Mason and then his Whites counterpart.

"The referee was too nice," Poyet said. "He gave a penalty that was not and also kept a player on the pitch who should not have been there, and who then scored the equaliser."

When told Warnock's was certain Varney had been shoved, an angry Poyet added: "He would say that. He is a hypocrite.

"He is on the list of hypocrites now. He's funny, Mr Warnock. Very funny. You cannot go one way only when it suits you.

"Then there is Mr Brown who had a fantastic game but he shouldn't have been on the pitch, and everybody knows that. You cannot be nice if you are refereeing. Everybody talks about the refs but they don't look at themselves.

"It was a decent Leeds team but we didn't do enough to beat them. I hope we get a win soon or I will be pulling out my hair."

h ha ha, excellent. Let's hope he goes on the run. Then they hunt piggy down for scoffing all the apples. At least he's done something right - he has united football fans, regardless of who they support, against FIFA and all those at the top who have been bleeding the game for their own means and giving nothing back.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.
