The Yorkshire Post Abandons Warnock After Leeds Defeat At Middlesbrough

It's not the best way to go into a game at the Etihad is it?

Warnock, a dead man walking since...well October in my book...has at least been propped up by the pall bearing fans, who have been carrying the corpse of the once great club for years now and so are used to shouldering a dead weight, Bates who would back anybody who didn't spend too much money, Lorimer who licks the ankles of any friend of the Chairman, and the Yorkshire Post, no doubt because Neil is always good for a page and a half of impassioned copy. The fans turned a few weeks back; Bates no longer cares as the window has closed and it is somebody else's money anyway; Lorimer is probably too busy fetching sticks for Haigh and Patel to notice that Neil is offering him a Bonio; and the local rag knows that fans are becoming bored with Warnock's illiterate rantings.

So poor Neil is now friendless. He has blamed the referees. He has blamed bad luck. He has blamed the protracted take over. He has blamed Becchio. He has blamed school boy errors by a school boy aged defender. He has blamed red cards given and red cards not shown. He has blamed transfer targets for not wanting to join Leeds and blamed rival clubs for being unwilling to give their players away for peanut shells. Give him more time and he will blame Global Warming, Romanian abattoirs, the European Union, the bankers and Gordon Brown. But how much more time does he have?

Phil Hay of the Yorkshire Post has now called for his head and pushed the case for Adkins, a man who may not be available if Leeds delay. So defeat against Man City could be Warnock's last hoo-ha.

From a personal point of view, it would be a shame to see him go but it seems as if we are now in the final throes of Mad Neil's fitful reign. Hay wants to see a dignified parting; I would much rather see blood and phlegm on the dressing rooms walls. If Neil has failed, it can't be his fault can it? So let's hope he spews the shit!

  1. The Yorkshire Post "Abadons" Warnock?? God you are incredibly stupid. You actually advertise your lack of literary prowess too. Why don't you go boil your head and make Stupid Soup? Your kind of recycling is not good for the environment.

    1. I have corrected the typo, so thank you for pointing it out. May I say in return that the use of two question marks is grammatically incorrect. Also, unless you are calling me God, and I really do not believe I justify that title, then you needed a comma after the first word in the sentence.

    2. Warnocks illiterate rantings? Look at your own,you idiot. Compare the punctuation in your 2nd and 3rd paragraphs when writing lists. What an utter moron. At least my question marks deliberate and i merely missed putting a comma there due to sunlight. Nice to see you're resorting to correcting punctuation though,a clear sign that you've been made to look like a mug.

    4. Two different approaches used actually, and both perfectly valid. Henry James would have favoured the first; Hemmingway would have gone with the second.

      You missed an apostrophe by the way. I know there are two Warnocks at Leeds now but, even if referring to both, you still need an apostrophe. It should either be Warnock's or Warnocks'!

    5. All this from someone who doesn't know the difference between ditch and dish. It's like the phrase "piss poor" was coined with YOUR blogs in mind.

  3. Agree but i want to see good football at ER thats a big part of it....... however 8 years of depression has taken its toll and patience has run out. Leeds United is just not much fun anymore.

    And unfortunately GFH and Neil warnock are taking the brunt of that bitterness. The club needs to be re-built and rebranded from the inside out otherwise attendances will continue to dwindle and the club will eventually die leaving you with nothing to write about and no audience to read it .....:o(

  4. It's all over if the Yorkshire post said that.
    It's a pity you don't read all the stories here, you will notice that the Yorkshire post has no respect from any Leeds fan, they report on nothing, only ask opinions from others.
    It's the worst form of journalism in Britain, oh but of course you read it don't you.
    It suit you. you are as good at your journalism as they are, printing utter bullshit
