So, Neil Warnock may yet miss out on automatic promotion as the FA impose a 15 point deduction on the Championship leaders for knowingly playing Alejandro Faurlin in breach of Third Party Agreement rules. There's is something wonderfully ironic here, given the rules were tightened after the Tevez affair and Faurlin is, himself, Argentinian.
The fact the Warnock is at the helm is, of course, the icing on the Royal Wedding cake. With Sheffield United looking odds on to drop out of the Championship in the opposite direction and West Ham likely to crash out of the Prem, there seems some sort of divinely organised closure of the Tevez affair here. All we really need is for Carlos to bugger off to Real Madrid in the summer and all trace will have disappeared!
So, our own relegation apart, there will be plenty of smiles from West Ham fans if all this happens, even though we bear no grudge towards QPR - in fact, they were my second team in the days of Bowles, Thomas, Francis and Givens.
However, the joyous reaction might be short sighted. If we do go down, we don't really want QPR staying in the division do we? They would then start favourites to finish top next season. The clubs finishing just outside of the relegation places of the Prem would be delighted to see Norwich and Cardiff coming up automatically.
Then there is the little matter of Warnock himself. If QPR are promoted, he will want to manage in the Prem; but if they stay down, might he not be tempted to move across London to manage West Ham?
Warnock and West Ham, now there is a marriage made in hell!
