Leeds Manager Warnock Threatens To Dish The Dirt In Book
It may be a coincidence or, with the sack looming, Old Big Gob may have fired a warning shot across the bows of GFH Capital and Master Bates.
Talking about the whole Tevez affair, Warnock says "I've got things that grate on my mind more than that one. You'll have to read my book when it's out".
If there are any skeletons in the Leeds cupboard, therefore, Warnock may be issuing a warning: sack me and I will dish the dirt.
It may be a very clever tactic. Leeds are going nowhere this season, no matter who is in the manager's office, so the powers-that-be may decide to allow Warnock to go with grace - in return for not bad mouthing when he has gone.
But Warnock is going to gob off anyway isn't he? He can't help himself. Even if he likes Bates, he will still moan about him when doing so won't be in breach of his contract. Sooner or later, Warnock will blame Bates and the Board for his failure to win promotion because he will never recognise that it was down to his own personal failings.
Still, Warnock may yet go out in a blaze of glory. He has served notice to the Man City board that he is not interested in replacing Mancini at the Etihad which has, no doubt, caused huge consternation and a revision of plans. Now, if Leeds were to win, progress to the FA Cup Final and lift the trophy, who would care about missing out on promotion?
They may be building a statue of Warnock outside of Elland Road yet!
