He asked for three games, just three more games to change the world. And the first ended in an epic Leeds victory to stand alongside any of the great performances of the past. Who says so? Neil!
Enthusing after the game, Old Big Gob told reporters: "I couldn't pick a star tonight." How could he, when he has recruited a squad of journeymen some might ask, but still, according to Warnock, "They were all nine or 10 out of 10."
Warnock continued: "We started on the front foot and limited them to just a couple of opportunities, which would have been cruel if they'd gone in." It would have been, because then Leeds would have drawn the game and the great charge would have stumbled before it had even started! He explained, however: "Paddy [Kenny] made a couple of great saves and I couldn't see him being beaten."
Then came the killer comment: "If you brought another manager in I couldn't see him getting more out of those players than you saw tonight."
Revie? Wilkinson? Clough? Ferguson? Jose? Honestly, who are you? Leeds have Warnock!
