After another humiliation at Barnsley, for the third consecutive year Leeds fell at the home of the 'pit props'. It's not the defeat that bothers me so much but the way we were played off the field by a managerless team, lacking their best player sold this week.
When a player like Marlon Harewood can totally boss your back line you know you're in 'the deep brown stuff'. I now suggest that after a year in charge of the club Neil Warnock should resign with dignity before he is shown the door by the new owners.
Lots has been written about his team selection, seven changes on Saturday after more changes versus Birmingham. He doesn't know his best team, plays his captain out of position and buys players only to leave them out (Drury). If this team is to go forward it can only do so with a manager who utilises players skills with the ball, not launch the ball into the sky and hope for Luciano to beat every defender to create anything.
I must say I was fully supportive of Warnock but feel that he has lost the dressing room and is losing the fans. He always said that if that happened he would walk. That time is now, as a few more performances like Saturday the gates at Elland Road will drop to around the size of the early eighties.
It's hard writing this as I thought this season we could at least challenge for the top six. I'm afraid with this manager we will not do this and in the best interests of the club it's best we part.
Goodbye Mr Warnock, it's time to retire and go back to Cornwall with your memories.
