Old Big Gob put his usual spin on things - the opposition got out of jail, the referee should have gone to Specsavers, school boy errors cost us - but he told us we should judge him after the window had closed, and the weekend after the window before, Leeds are in just about as bad a place as they have been all season. Or worse.
Look at the table and Leeds really are now chasing just one play off place, with only Miserableborough within reach. Worse still, Boro have a home game aginst Barnsley in the next round of fixtures, whilst Leeds travel to Wolves. Dean Saunders' side sit near the foot of the table but looked decent against Leicester and will fancy beating a Leeds side which travels as well as a three year that's eaten a box of Milk Tray and drunk a bottle of Tizer.
Worse still, Warnock's much vaunted Fortress Elland Road came tumbling down on Saturday, with the absence of a proven goal scorer a key factor. Leeds fans are trying their hardest to see the positives in the Morison Becchio swap, but surely the former leading scorer would have bagged one of the chances on offer against Cardiff? His departure has already cost Leeds a precious point.
The trouble is, should Leeds fall another three points behind the chasing pack next weekend, resignation will set in. The fire in the bellies will cool. The gates at Elland Road will shrink further. The players will start to listen to Warnock's rants on the training field and in the dressing room and think, "Blah, blah, blah, you're gone in the summer anyway". Why battle for a manager who will be shown the door, for fans who can't show up and for owners who were a no show when it came to financing both new players and salary increases in January? If Becchio couldn't get a raise, who can?
Campbell's goal brought in a real pea souper over Elland Road, and it is getting harder and harder to see any sun on the horizon. Another year in the Championship beckons, and then another, and another and...
