Times may be desperate, but they surely can't be THAT desperate!
OK we have bought some shit down the years, but buying Ross McCormack would really take the biscuit - providing Benni McCarthy didn't eat those left behind by cookie magnet Eggert Magnusson and the barrel has been kept hidden from Allardyce.
True the Scot has banged in a few goals in the Championship but how many players are capable of making the step up? And he's no spring chicken is he?
It doesn't take a high wattage bulb to shine in the darkness, and in the current Leeds team, a Lions Midget Gem would shine like the Koh-I-Noor. Good God, when you are compared with the likes of Podgy Kenny, Warnock Junior, Reg Varney, Shit Brown and Hell Hadji, you'd have to have two prosphetic left legs and be right footed not to stand out from the crowd.
If we are really interested in him then it can only be because we are planning for next season in the Championship. McCormack has Ted MacDougall and Derek Hales stamped all over him, a decent player in the lower divisions but hopelessly out of his depth in the top tier.
And as hard up as Leeds are, they won't sell him for what he is worth which is somewhere between £1.5m and £2m.
Leave well alone for God's sake - just look at what Becchio has "achieved" at Norwich!
