English term or phrase: see yellow
GARETH (talking about a football match):

It’s all part of the rough and tumble but the card count speaks volumes, when Gerard sees yellow, Fifa sees red, the future looks black, blue?

English translation:when a yellow card is produced
Explanation:
This means when a yellow card is produced on the football field. This is a variation on the expression "to see red", "meaning to be angry".

Presuming that Gerard is the player, the sentence means:
\"Gerard is given a yellow card by the referee, the Football Association is furious and his future doesn\'t look very bright.\"
