Offering Warnock A Helping Hand? You Cannot Be Serious!
So Freddie Sears may be heading for Crystal Palace! The irony of us entrusting a prized asset to the care of Neil Warnock is irresistible! Is this our way of settling Warnock's compo claim perhaps, gifting Old Big Knob a player who will shoot the Eagles into the Premier League?
Is Warnock really the man to develop Freddie? I can't think of anybody, except for Big Spam, Megson and Curbishley, who is further away from the West Ham and Zola philosophy on the game. Ball on the ground, neat interchanging of passes, a focus on ball retention, developing skills...is Neil Warnock really your man? I suppose it is a way of avoiding Sears having his leg broken in a game against Palace but, beyond that, I'm struggling to follow the logic. Maybe it is so he feels at home, playing in claret and blue, or perhaps the primary concern is to keep him in London.
Personally, I'd rather see him entrusted to West Brom where they play the game in the right way, even if it means relegation. Surely, if he is that good, the goal shy Baggies would love him?
West Ham helping out Warnock? It's kind of like the Americans arming Saddam Hussein and Bin Laden. Oh, hang on, that happened didn't it? Funny old world isn't it?
Lending Freddie to Warnock feels like entrusting your teenage son to the Catholic Church to me. Would you be happy for Neil to get his smutty paws on our kid striker?
