Crystal Palace manager Ian Holloway admits he must try to keep his cool if he feels poor decisions are given against his side.
The Palace boss admitted his post-match comments on Sunday, after his team lost 1-0 to Tottenham, were always going to get him into trouble.
Holloway accused referee's of favouring certain teams after Spurs were awarded a penalty that led to the winning goal and in the build-up it seemed Spurs new-boy Nasir Chadli fouled Palace player Stephen Dobbie.
"I've got to learn what a foul is because I thought Chadli deliberately body-checked Dobbie, smashed him down, and ran off with the ball," he told the BBC on Sunday.
The ex Blackpool manager is well-known for his fiery interviews and honesty after matches but Sunday's comments, directed at referees in general, were inevitably going to produce a fine for Holloway.
"It's going to be a long, hard season for me with these people," he said, talking about referees.
After calming down, Holloway has admitted since that he must try to refrain from being so honest in his interviews.
"The conclusion is that I won't give an opinion in future if I am always going to be fined. But I accept I must learn about these things and let things go because I respect authority," said the Palace boss.
With Jose Mourinho back in the Premier league it seems there are entertaining times ahead for fans and journalists especially now that Holloway is back as well and the aggrieved manager warned us all that he is not a 'mr nice guy'.
"I am not a nice person when I can't get what I want, in fact I can be horrible, just ask my mum," he humorously concluded.
Crystal Palace make their first away trip since returning to the top flight, when they take on Stoke City this Saturday.
