‘Warnock in’ I hear you say. Is that who the Leeds United fans really want? He may have an excellent record in getting teams promoted out of the lower divisions, however his record in the EPL is not good enough.His time at Sheffield United ended in tears, regardless of the Carlos Tevez affair. Overall the Blunts were not strong enough over the thirty-eight games and his ex employees QPR are hovering above the relegation zone half way through the season.
When he left the Blades he relocated to his summer residence in Cornwall and was quoted as saying he would have one more crack at management. Crystal Palace came knocking and he took the reins at Selhurst Park. During his time at Palace, Warnock was adamant the Palace job would be his last in football but the lure of a sleeping mega rich club QPR came calling and the rest they say is history.
Many Leeds fans wanting Grayson axed and Warnock in seem to have short term memories. He was a hate figure at Elland Road and I remember his unprofessional attitude on the side of the pitch after thumping Kevin Blackwell’s Leeds United Four – Nil. He was the pantomime villain that evening and as a diehard Blade fan he has never shied away from expressing his loathe for Leeds United.
Another reason why Neil Warnock would not be welcomed at Elland Road is the fact that he is not shy on bringing unwanted attention to himself, the club and his players. I’m sorry but we already have an outspoken figure at Leeds United and as we are all aware he also isn’t one to shy away from unnecessary controversy.
We’ve always been behind Simon Grayson here at Right in the Gary Kelly’s and will continue to do so. We don’t believe in calling for a manager’s head at the first time in his three years at the club we are going through a mini crisis.
Let’s take into consideration what Simon Grayson has achieved at the club and what resources he has had to work from. Can you honestly sit there and say the manager needs to go? If anything Grayson should be assessed at the end of the season. If his time has come then so be it but the appointment of Neil Warnock to Leeds United is not the answer.
