Oh dear, it didn't take long did it? Second game up and Warnock is beginning to see why Portsmouth were relegated last season - or finished fifth from bottom without the points deduction!
Blackpool, by all accounts, including Warnock's, played Leeds off the park for all of the second half, and the flat capped Premiership pretenders couldn't keep hold of the ball, nor put a cap in the fizzing Tangerine Tango of effervescent Blackpool.
Warnock, typically moaned and blamed his players, but you know how the team talks went at half time. NW would have been banging on about holding on to what they had, playing for a 1-0 victory and closing down space; Ollie would have been encouraging his players to get into the faces of their opponents and telling them Leeds were there for the taking.
Allow Blackpool the initiative and they will cause you trouble. West Ham beat them three times last season, including with 10 men and an outfield player in goal at the Kiss Me Quick Stadium, but we looked vulnerable when we played cautiously at Wembley. The way to beat them is to attack, because defensively they are poor; sit back and, as much better teams than Leeds discovered two seasons ago, Blackpool will hurt you.
So who was to blame for this defeat? Not Reg Varney but the conductor who rang the bell to stop and park the bus at half time. If Warnock wants to point the finger, he should look in the mirror first!
And if you want to win promotion from the Championship, you need to pick up points at places like Blackpool! Kiss Me Quick? More a tangerine horror show as fake tanned Emperor Warnock is exposed naked in his new Leeds clothes!
