Having recruited four players from Portsmouth, Warnock is now hoping to add a fifth relegated player to his squad, Coventry City's Martin Cranie. The Coventry man is available on a free, not that money should be a worry with billionaire owners just around the corner - although that corner is proving to be something of a hairpin bend coated in ice, an oil slick and broken glass!
Now I know Warnock is determined to get Leeds out of the Championship but I think it is about time that somebody mentioned that the idea is to secure promotion to the Premiership, not relegation to Division One! Quite why five players who struggled last season will suddenly transform into match winners when in a Leeds shirt is something of a mystery to anybody other than the die hard Leeds fans who will hear no criticism of their club. Perhaps Leeds will add Maynard to the ranks too. Ignore the fact that he was promoted with West Ham last season, the guy only scored two goals in Claret and Blue and spent half the season at Bristol City - in a relegation place!
It may well be that West Ham will return to the Championship after a year's holiday in the Prem but there's no guarantee we will play Leeds even if we do, because, at this rate, we will still be a division above the once mighty Whites.
Meanwhile, does anybody know when this take over will happen exactly?
