First of all he asked for three games to change the world, then it was eleven, and now Old Big Gob has settled on the number six. Six wins, that's all it will need, for Warnock's Wonders to make it into the playoffs. Six wins. And after today's game against Huddersfield that will be down to five.
But who will those wins come against? Well every home game has to be won. And the opposition are none too frightening - only marginally better than Peterborough for the most part. If Leeds can't win at home to Derby, Sheffield Wednesday, Burnley and Brighton, they don't deserve to go up.
Brighton, at the moment, looks like a six pointer but I fancy the Seagulls will be out of the race by the time they fly in to Leeds. The injury to Mucky-Smith and the seven game suspension for Paolo Barnes will make it difficult for the seasiders to score, never mind win games. Watch them plummet down like an albatross shot by an ancient mariner's arrow in the coming weeks. The big contenders are Nottingham Forest and Bolton at this stage and, if results go well today, Leeds could be right on their shoulder.
The Sheffield Wednesday game may prove the most difficult because of events at Hillsborough earlier this season. The match will be more of a war than a football game, and that usually suits the weaker teams.
But you can see Leeds winning all five home games, giving them 15 points and 67 come the end of the season. But Warnock is right, that won't be enough. Forest would only then need ten points from nine and Leicester eight from nine to deprive Leeds given the relative goal differences. So Leeds need points away from home.
And those fixtures aren't too tough either, leaving aside the last game of the season at Watford. Leeds can pick up points at all of Ipswich, Charlton and Birmingham. Three draws would see them through to 70 points and that may just be enough. A win and a draw and Leeds would almost certainly do it.
The run in is kind. They will erect that statue if Warnock can negotiate a route into the top six, then carry Leeds through the playoffs on a tide of hope and glory.
Buy those discounted season tickets guys, it could be a great deal for a season in the Premiership!
