So GFH Capital have come good big time. Two top internationals signed in a day. First Welsh maestro Steve Morison and now England international left back Stephen Warnock.
This is a great day for the club, one to compare with the heady Revie era perhaps. Never mind that Becchio has left - who needs him anyway when you have the electric quick goal machine that is Morison?
And as for Warnock, he has to be one of the unluckiest footballers ever to have lived, his England opportunities limited by Cole and Baines, and his Villa career cut short by the ensemble of top defenders that Lambert has to choose from.
Old Big Gob has no excuses now, not that he will need them! This is the squad he has craved all season. He said he needed two or three quality players, well they don't come with more quality than the two Steves do they?
Leeds were already too good for Tottenham before these signings, now promotion to the Premier League followed by Champions League qualification feel almost within touching distance. How Snodgrass and Becchio will live to regret walking out on Leeds, opting for those giants of English football, Norwich City instead! Poor Mancini is already clearing his desk knowing that the writing is on the wall after poor Man City were paired with Warnock's boys in the next round of the Cup.
The fans are gathering outside Elland Road as we speak, singing the names of Warnock, Patel and Haigh. Beckham is fuming, having been knocked off the back pages of the world's media by this stunning double coup. Extra staff have been brought in to man the phones in an effort to cope with the surge in demand for match day tickets, with lines opened throughout the night.
The ground will be full from now to the end of the season for Leeds have acquired two giants to stand alongside Giles, Hunter, Bremner, Eddie Gray, Sniffer Clarke, Cantona, and Lee Chapman. MOT lads, MOT!
