Warnock Faces Leeds Sack In New Year


With sackings in the Championship spreading like a contagion, Warnock should start looking over his shoulder. Nottingham Forest defeated Leeds and are above them in the table but that wasn't enough to save the manager. Blackburn took decisive action when Berg was obviously failing. Barnsley have borrowed the chopper after dropping to the bottom of the table. And the biggest underachiever of the lot is probably Old Big Gob.

Leeds fans insist all the blame lies with Master Bates, but he backed his manager's judgement in the summer. Warnock built this squad and promised a promotion campaign. But the brutal truth is that his predecessor had a better record whilst at Elland Road. Despite the recent revival, based on a clutch of home games, Leeds are lower in the table now than they were when Warnock took charge thanks to two highly predictable away defeats.

And Neil has made no secret of his intention to retire at the end of the season so what is the point of sticking with him now? If GFH Capital are going to invest money in the squad, why entrust it to a guy who will not be managing the players purchased next season? That sounds pretty stupid to me.

And with Leeds still in touch with the clubs chasing the play offs, why not strengthen now and try to capitalise on a rank poor division, building a squad capable of finishing in the top six and storming the playoffs?

The uncomfortable truth is that the team finishing third in the Championship is much more likely to win through to the Prem than any of the also-rans. So scraping into the playoffs in sixth place would almost certainly be a futile gesture, simply prolonging the agony of failure for the season. Leeds need to build a momentum instead in flip flapping from seventh to twelfth in the table depending on whether a home or away fixture is being played.

Warnock has hidden behind the fans' contempt for Bates and, as a result, he has not been judged on his own inadequate performance. If he was in charge of West Ham, we would be calling for his head. Leeds are hopelessly off the Championship pace and that is not acceptable for a club with such a great history. GFH Capital need to take decisive action. And fast!

  3. You really are a clueless idiot aren't you? Warnock is the biggest underachiever of the lot is he? Had fcuk all of note to spend and Blackburn can spend £8 million on a striker and are below us in the league?

  7. 3 leeds blogs in 2 days - is it just leeds you hate or do you think you should spend more time on your so called club 'west ham' - you are an absolute moron. Everytime i see this web blog in the leeds newsnow list i cringe to see what utter crap you peddle. You are a sad virgin who really needs some real life friends.

  9. WELL SAID AND AGREE 100%, AND HAVE THEY GOT MONEY WE COULDN'T EVEN COMPETE WITH LEICESTER FOR A STRIKER OR WAS THAT MORE TO DO WITH WAGE DEMANDS AND ALL THE DEAD WOOD WE NEED TO GET RID OF, BEFORE SPLASHING OUT ON MORE WAGES.
    WARNOCK NEEDS TO WALK NOW AS AN ATTEMPTER RATHER THAN A FAILURE AT THE END, GET NEW BLOOD IN NOW FRESH FOR NEW YEAR A BIT OF MONEY, ATTRACTIVE FOOTY AGAIN,PUSH FOR PLAY OFFS AND GET GATE RECEIPTS IN WITH WILL EQUAL A BIT MORE DOSH FOR THE NEW GUY IN THE SUMMER AND STORM THE LEAGUE NEXT YEAR.

  11. Still writing drivel on Leeds I see whilst failing to even mention the defeat against Reading let alone write an article on it. Not a single West Ham post on this new look website of yours either.

    2. Sorry hf, couldn't resist that one. I'm not really that stupid. Saw your response to a similar comment on an earlier article.

      I have been told I have an odd sense of humour.

      Have a good new year!

  12. Shows how little you research into your poor articles. With your own team doing reasonably well you would think you had better things to do than criticise a bigger club. Warnock is not leaving at end of season... Fact. GFH made it part of the takeover deal that he stay on an extra year. Get the facts then write your drivel

  13. Warnock's retiring at season's end anyway isn't he?

  15. Instead of hiding behind a keyboard and IP address you really need to go to Elland Road announce yourself and broadcast your opinions via the Public Address System. Then maybe you will get your wish and be a permanent part of Yorkshire and Leeds United history which is obviously what you want.

  18. Spot on HF as I choke on my own words.
    Im unsure whos looking for work or good at the minute
    but needs to be young aggressive, knows the game and
    not afraid to bring the youth, erm another O'leary would
    be nice. Fuck me ive got it George Graham is he still alive
    and available? Wishfull thinking on my part at least George
    knows how to build a fortress. Happy New Year and keep posting

  20. Such a poor unfounded article. Never been a fan of Warnock(not heard he was about to pack it in) but given enough backing would undoubtedly get Leeds to the PL. And lets be honest, even though i hate Leeds, they are a much bigger and more illustrious club than West Ham. I read an article recently talking of West hams form and how they were hoping to emulate what Newcastle did last season anyway thanks for the laugh keep them coming

  24. Seems fair enough
    It is hard to see where Leeds go from here
    Maybe look at younger players and plan for the future.
    Maybe if Paul Lambert gets sacked we should grab him
    Anyone who gets Norwich from L1 to Prem with a load of journeymen
    must be a footballing genius...

    Leeds are treading water and are destined for a life of mid table mediocrity, it is hard to see a way out

    Have a great 2013
