Pulled out at the last moment? Leeds fans wish Warnock's dad had on the night of Old Big Gob's conception! But with Warnock gone in less time than an elephant's gestation - like his four predecessors in the Leeds hot seat - it's looking more and more likely that Nice Guy Brian is heading to Leeds.
Sky Sports presenter David Jones has tweeted "Brian McDermott has pulled out of tonight's Footballers' Football Show. I'm told he has a very good reason." and surely the only explanation is that the former Reading boss is on his way to Leeds.
What now happens to Anthea? Will Brian ask her to give us all a twirl and keep her on as his assistant, or will she be sent packing along with the Warnock and his band of unmerry men?
