Old Big Gob is seething. His Leeds United super club were robbed today by a badly positioned referee and a hopeless assistant. The management maestro showed his class when criticising young Byram for a "school boy error" - nothing like assassinating a teenager who has been your most consistent performer all season - before spitting his dummy in the direction of the officials.
Losing had nothing to do with failing to retain leading scorer Becchio apparently - except in Warnock's words "We missed open goals" - it was all down to Awayer Officials as Old Big Gob explained: "Dean...didn't see the handball, when we all appealed, because he was in a bad position and should have been in a better one. He had three or four bodies in the way. The linesman could have helped him out, but they don't, do they. Then there was another handball in the 93rd minute that wasn't given."
It is amazing how many points Leeds have lost this season down to poor decisions by the officials. In fact, if you listen to Warnock, it is clear that Leeds would now be running away with the division but for referee and assistant referee errors. Warnock, of course, as he reluctantly admits, is doing a brilliant job, it's just the clowns with the whistles and flags who are making him look mediocre.
Poor Neil. He did such a great job in the January transfer winner - and he asked us to judge him after the window had closed - and his team had most of the ball today. It is so unfair that a stupid kid and twatish officials cost him the three points his expertise deserved.
Still, twelfth place isn't bad. Leeds are only four places below where they were when Warnock took over 12 months ago! Damn those useless officials!
