Meanwhile, players are Bahraining down on Elland Road. None of them are much cop, and none of them stand a cat in hell's chance of cutting it in the Prem, but Warnock is on a mission and there's no holding him back. He wants a squad. And to be fair, if four or five big signings follow when the Arab oil tap is turned on, then Leeds may yet be a force in the Championship this season.
I know Leeds fans think I am obsessing about their club but the truth is, Leeds are the big story at the moment. And if I was Warnock, I would be sweating. If the new owners are Bahraini, they don't mess around when it comes to summary justice. He's been sacked a few times, but Warnock hasn't been shot on his way out of the office - yet!
Leeds have some challenging fixtures at the start of the season and if they don't hit the ground running, Warnock will be in trouble. And his challenge is to blend all these new signings into a team. How often did West Ham fans trot out the line, "It takes time for a team to gel" last season? An early punch in the solar plexus could leave Leeds doubled up and gasping.
Meanwhile, Maynard is supposedly the first of the "big" signings. I've made my feelings clear on the West Ham misfit - Leeds can have him. If that is a "big" signing, then the Bahrainis would appear to be a little less affluent than Man City's owners!
Meanwhile, there's sod all happening at West Ham!
