The visitors were a goal up when Michail Antonio was upended the the box, but the Owls' penalty claims were given short shrift by referee Andy D'Urso.

"We had a stonewall penalty again which the referee said Antonio went down too easy," Jones said.

"But I think a pull is not going down too easy. I'm getting fed up now, the referee has to give that.

"He is clipped from behind and pulled by the arm and that is a clear penalty. One day someone is going to see it, but they just pat it off as 'he went down too easy'.

"That's poor on their part and probably one of the reasons why he has been demoted down. He is five yards away, one day someone is going to give us something."

e made his power play to try and get Sheikhy to raise his wages or trade him to PSG. PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
