Rochdale Minnows 2 Great Big Leeds United 0 - Bring Back Warnock!

What a disgrace! You can probably hear Warnock's guffawing in Leeds from deepest, storm tormented Cornwall. This time last season, Leeds were just shy of a play off place - just like this season - and launched a great Cup run that saw them hammer £100m Bale inspired Spurs. But this season? Well today's result was almost as bad as that epic Revie defeat at Colchester.

And it's not as if the Bald Controller picked a reserve team in order to save players for the more important business of finishing in the upper middle table of the Championship. Oh no, as the Churchill Dog might say if an opponent asked for insurance against a broken leg with Shit Brown in the Leeds starting eleven. McCormack was risked; and so was Smith; and Byram; and Murphy; and Austin; and even Podgy Kenny. Anybody expecting the second Pugh, Barney, McGrew, Cuthbert, Dibble and Grubb to be drafted in to save first team legs was sorely disappointed.

And to what end? Rochdale, like Colchester in 1971, are in the bottom tier of the Football League so today's result would have been embarrassing even if the kids had played; but with a team so close to the first eleven selected, it was nothing short of humiliating. This must be one of the greatest day's in Rochdale's history!

And it's not as if Leeds were unlucky. The shot count was 19 to 11 in Rochdale's favour, Rochdale had twice as many corners and twice as many shots on target. Statistically, this was a comprehensive victory.

To keep things in context, this was the first time Rochdale have reached the Third Round since 2005 and until today, Leeds had a 100% record against the genuine Lancashire minnows.

Steady progress? The Leeds United McFeelgood Factor Sleeper Express to the Premiership, Europe, Infinity and Beyond came off the rails with a vengeance today and the mutterings of discontent will start to build up a head of steam if Friar Brian doesn't turn things around pretty fast.

Still, the good news is that Warnock is still kicking his heels in Cornwall!

  6. Warnock gave us 80% of this team and saddle us with another year with Brown. I for one would not welcome our former manager back and hope he sticks to broadcasting his rubbish on talksport, sucking up to Alan Brazil.

  7. For the last eight years I have been screaming we need a defence and a keeper

  8. The fat controller will be sacked tomorrow after Forest knock West ham out of the cup, I hope ( make that pray ) that Warnock is then installed as your new manager. that would make mine and every other Leeds fans day ( make that year )

  9. cockney boy, its the easiest thing in the world to knock a team when there down. us leeds supporters are well aware that the current 1st 11 are nowhere near good enough, thats why this month will be make or break for leeds this season.we definately need at least 4 new players if not more. judge us in may not now, we might still swop places with the bubble blowers. mot.

  11. You should be more worried about uncle Sam taking you back to the Championship, where you belong.

  12. (18.19) Now that would be irony, wouldn't it. Although I can't see West Ham taking him.
    Bad management today by Bmcd. He should have rested most of the players, after so many games over Xmas they looked and played knackered. Athough, credit to Rochdale, they played well and were up for it.

    1. What's odd is that Friar Brian said his Merry Men looked tired in the Blackburn game so why didn't he rest them?

    2. HF answers Jack !! That special Bond these two have has finally drawn a comment from the Blogger....Jack's use of the word 'Irony' is also, ironically, a favourite word of this Bloggers...hmmm...methinks he might be talking to himself !

    3. maybe he knew that resting his first team could end up in complete humiliation....... you know, like 5 nil instead of 2 nil?

  13. Can't make excuses we didn't deserve it but I will never make excuses when we play bad, it hurts little to take when u take the piss but I can take it as I know that's all u want is a reaction and I sure won't give u it, I might tomorrow if Forrest win tho! Ha ha x

  14. Forget the stats, their keeper didn't have to make a save today. We were totally outplayed and 4-0 would have been a fair result. Anyway, another kick in the teeth, but we will always be mot

  18. we'll still be playing your big cockney team next season! how about bobby moore, Geoff hurst&martin peters being taken apart by mighty Mansfield town? sounds like you were at the game today,can you not watch your own team,you horrible little cockney

  19. I had the misfortune of seeing it and we were terrible. When Wootton went off after about 75 minutes and we went to 4-3-3, rather than things getting better Rochdale began to look like Real Madrid and really took us apart. I'm not sure if I can remember Hunt touching the ball after he came on.

    But as for Warnock guffawing (and he may bloody be, knowing him), this was still his squad we've been stuck with (and for that matter we're also still stuck with Bates forward selling off the season ticket revenue, which doesn't help either). Even before the game, Phil Hay at the Yorkshire Evening Post was saying 4 new faces probably isn't enough. Seeing this today, I think I agree with him. Bear in mind GFH, knowing the issues on the revenue and on the outstanding Warnock contracts, only told BMD they expected a top half finish this year; you can now see why.

  20. Help!! Leeds are playing like west sam. McKermitt must go....

  21. Almost as shit as watching West Ham lose at home to Aldershot in the other cup a couple of years ago

    ReplyDelete
  22. If we don't get a result against Sheff. Wednesday then these 30,000+ home attendances will drop substantially (due to the fickle nature of most Leeds fans).
    This will cause a major problem for the new "bean counters". They'll already be counting the financial cost of yesterday's loss and no TV revenue. I also think it's time Austin had a rest, his lack of vision is totally disruptive to the midfield.

  28. Oh Dear! Gob in gear before brain engaged... Again.
    Just watched the 5-0 mullering by Forest. You were totally outplayed. No tactical awareness. No passion. And no captain cos he threw a tantrum last match.
    It looks like Big Sam Allardicci's Feelcrap Express to the Championship, League 1. League2, Southern Counties League, Barking & District Sunday League, Infinity and Beyond is not just steaming ahead. It's a bloody runaway train. See you at the crossover station in May.

  32. anything to say about the mighty hammers after todays embarrassment?

    ReplyDelete
  33. The only positive today is that Fat Sam, prioritised, and rested most of his players for their forthcoming League Cup duel, and relegation battle. Whereas BMCD paraded is knackered old charges, who will still be knackered next week, as I stated earlier, totally bad planning and management.
