Anybody remember what happened the last time Warnock promised a gung-ho approach to a game? Zola does! Watford came to town and helped themselves to six goals!
But Old Big Gob was at it again after Leeds slipped still further adrift in the sack race for the last play off place. According to Neil, Leeds have "got to try and win our next three or four games and go gung-ho."
Last time, of course, it ended up more Gok Wan than Gung Ho, but Warnock has never been one to learn from previous mistakes.
He was back talking of the "glass half empty" mentality at Leeds again and calling for a "glass half full" approach. What he doesn't seem to understand is that half full or half empty isn't good enough, it has to be four fifths full to count! It is sixth place or nowhere!
So now Neil pledges to "try and win" the next three or four games. It's an interesting approach. Perhaps he should have adopted it in the last three games, then the need might not now be so great!
Meanwhile, Warnock seems to have been watching a different season unfold from the rest of us. According to him, "You can only do your best as a manager and I think we’ve had a good season". Well if this is a good season, you have to wonder why his predecessor was shown the door last season with the team three places higher in the table!
He does have a novel solution to the problem, however, saying, " Unless I actually run on the pitch and put the chances in, I don’t know what I can do." That's a great way to build the confidence of recently signed Welsh Goal Machine Morison isn't it? Maybe, just maybe, it might have been better to retain the proven scorer Becchio instead?
Still, the talented young Barkley is on his way back to Everton as Warnock can't fit him into the team with the likes of Brown in the squad, so there's still hope of a late Leeds charge! Hold on to your Kiss Me Quick Hats for the Blackpool game, here comes Neil Warnock with his Gok Wan, sorry Gung Ho, Leeds United makeover! And never mind that Glass Half Empty approach, Leeds will have a Stadium Half Full attitude instead!
