Time for Leeds to call time on Warnock's tenure?

Warnock said to judge him after the window closed. Well it is now two defeats and one draw. One point from nine and Leeds are just about as far off a play off place as they have been all season.

Eleventh in the table. Eight points behind Middlesbrough. The same number of points ahead of third from bottom Barnsley. If that doesn't scream out mid table obscurity with just 15 games to go, what does?

And the facts become more damning. Middlesbrough hadn't won a league game in 2013 and came into the match on the back of five straight defeats. But they were good enough to beat Leeds.

Wolves haven't won in five. But Leeds still couldn't beat them.

And apart from a penalty, Leeds have only scored once in 270 minutes of football. And that comes after the sale of leading scorer Becchio.

What will be achieved by leaving Warnock in the job until the end of the season? Bring in a new man, and it may act as a fillip. Bring in a new man and he will have a chance of assessing the squad ahead of the next transfer window. Bring in a new man and this overpowering sense of a club drifting in the doldrums will at least be challenged.

Surely it is time for action?

  4. Comes across as quite heartfelt that hf (or should I say LUF?). I think you've finally shown your true colours here, I'm seriously doubting that you're as Claret & Blue as you make out. I'm not surprised by our results at all. I said at the end of Bristol City game in January that we'd pick up no more than 4 points before March 16th, obviously I wanted to be proved wrong, but sadly it looks like I won't be. We'll keep MOT though, cos that's wot we do!

  5. For once I agree with your comments BUT a knee jerk reaction to sack Warnock now is not the answer as he would probably only be replaced by an available out of work no hoper. However the search for a new manager should begin immediately with a view to earmarking and approaching someone who can run his eye over the current squad - not a difficult task! - before the end of the season ready to enter the transfer market at the earliest opportunity.

  6. Yep - the game's over for NW - it could have worked out but it hasn't and its not now going to. Nigel Adkins should be top of the list for a new man in soon. We have good players but need some fresh thinking in time for next season.

  7. Tend to agree - but to correct you.. Leeds scored 2 at Wolves (3 if you count Peltier's own goal)

  9. Sometimes you talk a lot of crap, but this ain't one of those times. I was willing to put up with the dire football if it got results, but it isn't. And its not a bad set of players on the pitch week in week out, so I think it's time for warnock to sling his hook. Hopefully gfh are competent enough to bring in a manager who knows how to keep the ball on the bloody ground

  13. GFHC/Bates is who wants sacking. Warnock poor hoof football,clueless and blames everyone but himself. There's no hope for leeds until Bates is carried off in a coffin. He may just kill off the club before himself. Wouldn't bother me if we went into administration but expect the lowest gates for years because we need to take the funds away from bates and make him sell or go bust.

  14. Why don't we get rid of Warnock bring in Adkins and let him assemble another mid-table squad on a shoestring and watch us finish......mid-table. Who next? Apparently Mourinho is leaving Real end of next season maybe he could have the honour?

    Look the quality of the football under Warnock is awful. However, unlike West Ham (no offence to the author) I don't really care which manager leads us to a 13th place finish (the whole debate about whether to get rid of Allardyce is pointless tbh). As a Leeds fan I am only interested in winning I don't really care how 'pretty' we lose. Even now after all these years I can honestly say that mid-table in the premiership is still not bloody good enough.

    I guess what I'm trying to say is without investment the whole debate over whether to replace the manager is completely irrelevant. 99% of mid-table teams always finish mid-table for a reason.
