Warnock on the verge after meeting papa smurf in Monaco according to the yep

Believable17 Unbelievable2

Yes this is true the sun are showing a picture of the meeting it's about time!!

Agree0 Disagree0

There's also a picture on the Daily Mail website. I think we're about to find out whether Neil W wants the big challenge of getting us promotion! Surely he will take it?? (Fingers crossed)

Agree0 Disagree0

Looks likely now, bit worried as lot of QPR players said his training methods were rubbish, and were years behind what Mark Hughes has been doing since he came in, would love to see Lee Clark as No.2 with view to take over in few years.

Agree0 Disagree0

Why on earth has it taken so long?
Don't tell me it's something to do with Qpr comp. as that's ridiculous.
Bates thought he could save money by giving the job to another 2nd rater.

Agree0 Disagree0

I work at the Leeds Hilton hotel and the receptionist very kindly informed me of a mr warnock booked in on Monday lunch time ..........coincidence?

Believable31 Unbelievable12

No way would they go to Hilton! Its not the 90's!

Agree0 Disagree0

I bet the 'Mr and Mrs Smiths' who stay at the Hilton love the discretion allegedly shown by your friend! But as the previous poster says, dream on - far too public and certainly not an appropriate venue.

Agree0 Disagree0

He is staying there he booked in at 2/45
Elvis booked in at 3

Agree0 Disagree0

So you went to book in to the hotel and the receptionist says "oh by the way Neil war nock is staying here"

Very believable

Agree0 Disagree0

NW was always gunna get the job and will on saturday, i think NR thought he had a chance but he never did. Gwyn williams said on radio that they were looking for experience after the 3-0 win. NW was always my choice, in fact i could deal with anyone apart from steve bruce lol. MOT.

Sad to see Peter 'the puppet' Lorimer leeds legend currently being reduced to the role of Bates mouthpiece in YEP. Constantly having goes at Grayson knowing that he wont be able to have a go back. Latest gem states he not happy at critiscm him bates and harvey been getting as they have done b*****r all wrong - PRICELESS!, they are deluded. Needs to stick to pulling pints in that grotty pub of his

Believable10 Unbelievable5

Time to boycott the commercial me thinks,, profits only goes to the bookies anyway

Past legend respected - but needs to keep stum and start talking sense

Agree0 Disagree0

Don't think he will be there much longer - Bates gave him his role to keep the fans happy as he is a legend - but all he is doing now is making a fool of himself by revealing his true role as another Bates puppet , as soon as Bates realise the fans are wise to it he will serve no purpose

Agree0 Disagree0

Personally I am sick of the criticism levelled at Lorimer. He works for Bates and does what he has to to keep his job same as everybody else but without Lorimer and the rest of the lads of the 70s this club would be nothing. I love Lorimer, I don't agree with all his comments but I love him all the same.

Agree0 Disagree0

Whatever you think of Lorimer he is now publicly stating something that was evident a long time back, Grayson lost the confidence of the team as a whole, full stop.

I was fortunate enough to watch Lorimer play for Leeds, and I know deep down where his loyalty is, like mine.

You all state that we need 'transparency' and yet when it comes along, like this, you just kill the messenger?

We do have players that don't want to play for the shirt, they just want the money.....

Lorimer is still around, 40 years on, like me.....

He could easily have walked away, like so many others have done, both on and off the field.......

I seriously don't believe he he needs whatever Bates may be paying him by way of remuneration?

Agree0 Disagree0

To be fair, you can't really blame the boardroom for the players not playing well. Surely that's the fault of the players and the manager who bought them?

hmmm... maybe not - i guess it makes too much sense...

Agree0 Disagree0

About time Leeds fans let Lorimer know their thoughts of him. A few anti Lorimer songs at ER would be a start.

Agree0 Disagree0

No true Leeds fan would speak like that about a Leeds legend.

Agree0 Disagree0

Loriomer is a puppet - not becasue he isn't speaking the truth that Grayson lost the players, he probably did - but to knife him in the back when he knows he can't respond is a classless act.
To then claim that the board have done nothing wrong in their running of Leeds United is astonishing
He's suppossed to be the link between the baord and the fans, but all he's doing at the moment is widening the chasm with his ill-thought out bleatings

Agree0 Disagree0

What were now going to start anti lorimer songs at ER???? Are you really serious. Yes you might not agree with what he says but he is still here after 40 years at this club. The one he played for the one he stayed close to and lets be honest Grayson DID lose the dressing room> I dont know why but the players wernt playing for him as much as I liked him the results just wernt good enough. Lay off Lorimer and try singing for the team instead. ER should be the nosiest place on earth today. Lets scare Donny to death

Agree0 Disagree0

Why cant Grayson respond? Youre not Leeds fans your just chav kids

Agree0 Disagree0

God almighty, can any of you depressives have a conversation about anything positive thats happening at ER please! Moan moan moan. I love going to matches, even this season. Yes the beer and pies are expensive, but its BEER AND A PIE! AND A LAUGH WITH MY MATES!!!! There is occasionally good football to watch, good verbal abuse of visiting fans/players/managers. A few hours away from the mrs and her to-do lists. Whats wrong with you lot?

Believable17 Unbelievable7

If you were Leeds you would know we're only happy when ER is hostile

Agree0 Disagree0

If all you want is beer,food,a chat with your mates,a bit of football and time away from the mrs then go to the pub and save your self some money aggravation and disappointment - fans have a right to moan about how our great club is going down the pan

Agree0 Disagree0

I am sure he will be happy to have a pie and a pint in the Old Peacock when Elland Road becomes a hotel complex with an ancient football pitch to look dowwn on.........

Agree0 Disagree0

You talk like its the England cricket team- no one really gives a f***
This is Leeds and most of us are pationate!

Agree0 Disagree0

Bbc saying n.w seen at the training groud

Believable8 Unbelievable5

No it's not on any BBC site dont understand putting something down that just doesn't exist what is the point

Agree0 Disagree0

I saw it on the BBC website. It was on the Sportsday live section. It was actually BBC saying that someone on Twitter was saying NW was seen at TA. Gossip and rumours, not facts.

Agree0 Disagree0

Warnock new manager tonight

Believable8 Unbelievable8

17 Feb 2012 14:50:52
Warnock to be announced after doncaster games, will sort the team out and hopefully will be able to get in to the play offs with a bit of luck

Believable9 Unbelievable4

Warnock will be the new leeds boss
grayson odds on for the huddersfield town job

Agree0 Disagree0

Much as I hate Warnock, anything would be better than the situation we are now in..........

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Feb 2012 13:11:23
Warnock now huge odds on favourite, does someone know something .... ?

Believable10 Unbelievable4

Stumbling block with Warnock,has been sorting his comp out with QPR
Redfearn has had his 3 games,time to get Warnock in ASAP,plenty of time to get us back in the play off place,by end of the season
Saints and West Ham too strong this season to miss out on automatic promotion

Agree0 Disagree0

Apparantly according to yep warnock in talks with wolves last night

Agree0 Disagree0

Warnock's compo is sorted out now and he is talking to clubs. he's talked to wolves but they want alan curbishley. He would be just what we need, a kick up the arse, rather than all this 'we love redders' s**t that has got us 3 points from 9 against s**te

Agree0 Disagree0

^ saints won't go up automatically, west hand and Birmingham will

Agree0 Disagree0

He has always been No 1. Was always likely to be. Will be in charge for the trip to Pompey next week.

Agree0 Disagree0

Although he is heavily odds on, and falling in the betting for Hudds, maybe Bates has a job share agreement with Hudds picking up the wages!

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Feb 2012 11:50:14
Scratching shed now reporting that Wornock is now odds on favourite for leeds job. Never liked the guy but would be very pleased.

Believable9 Unbelievable1

Getting shorter by the minute. 1/3 on now..colin's coming!

Paul Lambert is going to be the next manager. Yes hes currently 8th in the Prem league BUT Leeds are a bigger club and he will take leeds to the Prem and be back where he is now but with a bigger club

Believable2 Unbelievable30

Wake up, we are falling down the Championship and they are climbing the Prem. We historically are a bigger club, but that means nothing today. I would love it for him to come, but lets be real he won't drop down a league with everything going on at the club. With Bates in charge we ghave no immediate future and will not be a force until he's gone. Get ready for the sacked L1 manager at best...MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

No its true. He wants to leave Norwich before his son asks to marry his mum. Its what they learn at school over there.

Agree0 Disagree0

Why even waste your time writing this crap. Why would he drop out of the premiership and get paid less than half than he gets now ??

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Feb 2012 02:10:57
Just been reading on the Leeds Banter page that Glenn Roeder (worst teeth in English football) is climbing the ranks in being next Leeds boss, still not odds on though, Odds have been slashed from 33/1 to 7/1 in just today!?

Believable0 Unbelievable15

When you make something up, just remember other people have the Internet too! Oddschecker gives a list of all prices on the next Leeds manage, Roeder is anything from 16/1 to 40/1.money this morning is for warnock, with Bruce going to wolves.

Agree0 Disagree0

Miller and Warnock both met this morning, seems a done deal at last. Warnock to work behind the scenes and has agreed to sign a contract of intent. Deal was Leeds to go up next season as Bates didn't want to pay any back tax without investment. Miller wants this season and Warnock to keep us up on a shoestring

Agree0 Disagree0

What has Miller got to do with the appointment of the new manager?

Also "the deal was to go up this season" Yeah because its that easy to just decide to get promoted when it suit you.

What a load of garbage!!1

Agree0 Disagree0
