With the season only two weeks away and the third reverse in the pre season schedule, 1-0 to those world beaters Walsall. I know it's very early days but I'm concerned the players Warnock left behind are very short of a team challenging for the top six, really have little or no sell on value and have very comfortable wages for the next couple of years.
The manager made it plain after the latest defeat somebody has to leave before the forth signing, the one he's been trying to get in for at least a couple of weeks can finally come through the door at Elland Road. I list a few who really need to go:
Varney (although he was ok when used as a substitute v Walsall)
I reckon the players above must be on over £10,000 per week, which even with my basic knowledge of maths is over £500,000 per player, which is probably worth a couple of new players at least. If they don't move on it looks like that unless the board get some money in from 'another source', what we have we might have to 'make do with'.
I put the blame squarely on Warnock as he brought in players for a quick fix that never materialised and on contracts that they didn't deserve. I'm hoping that some lower league teams do us a favour and take them off our hands, but I'm not holding my breath.
