Ian Holloway kept his players locked in the dressing-room for 45 minutes after goals from Nicky Maynard and Danny Haynes condemned Blackpool to defeat against Bristol City.
Bristol-born Holloway has always struggled for friends at Ashton Gate due to his Bristol Rovers past - he played for and managed the Robins' bitter rivals - and this was another miserable occasion for the Seasiders boss.
Holloway finally emerged from the dressing to say: "I don't rant, but I've given my lads plenty to think about on the coach journey home."
He added: "I didn't like what I saw out there. There were players whinging at one another and showing a lack of respect, which I won't tolerate.
"We didn't close down City's back players quickly enough, and allowed them to do as they liked for 40 minutes.
"When we started to play our proper game in the second half, we penned them back and created a fair bit of pressure.
"But if we'd stayed out there all night, I don't think we would have scored, and I'm far from happy with the overall performance."
