The visitors were denied an equaliser in first half stoppage time only for Jay Simpson's close range finish to be ruled out after Stephen Quinn was adjudged to have handled in the build up.

Bruce said: "I thought Cardiff were the better side and we were nowhere near the level we've been at in recent weeks.

"But it might have been different had the disallowed goal been given.

"It was a big turning point in the game. It's a baffling and ridiculous decision and a big call.

"It upsets me greatly because I think the linesman flags for offside. He realises he has made a mistake and then when he was walking off at half-time he says it was handball which makes matters worse because the only person who handled the ball was (Cardiff defender Ben) Turner.

"The ball hit his arm - it didn't hit anyone else.

"It's a difficult one to take. Even though we haven't played well in the first half, we were getting into the game in the last 15 minutes.

"If we'd scored then it might have been a different story."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
