The Guardian Jones's outburst and supporters' abuse top up a toxic mix with rancour and red mist

The Times, Sunday Times and Telegraph now seem to require registration to view articles on their sites, with the Times and Sunday Times charging readers outside the UK. The Times/Sunday Times has also moved some of the older articles into an archive which requires separate registration and requires you to pay to access the content. The Independent now charges for access to articles more than a week old.

Jones's outburst and supporters' abuse top up a toxic mix with rancour and red mist - Jeremy Alexander

Copy from Football Unlimited of 19/02/2007.

Cardiff and Leeds have a simmering history and it came sharply to the boil here, sweet in part but mostly sour. Oddly, after it all boiled over in a frantic final 10 minutes in which Cardiff's nine men clung to a precious win, it was the victorious manager who was seething. Dave Jones made Paul Jewell seem a model of discretion.

The object of his fury was Mark Clattenburg, widely regarded by Premiership managers as best of the young referees. Jones said: "He was a joke. I think he lost the plot. Maybe the game was too big for him. I can understand why he's not good enough to ref in the higher division and he's not good enough at this level either. He should keep on going down.

"He's lots to answer for. He's depleted my squad [West Brom tomorrow, then Preston] through bad refereeing. The red and yellow cards today were for nothing challenges. I thought he was trying everything in his power to give Leeds a helping hand but he doesn't have to justify himself." Jones may have trouble doing just that to the Football Association.
