Bloody typical. Talk about looking after your own! The big wigs at the FA were never going to overturn the Pearce red card with a game coming up against London club Millwall were they?
We all knew the public school educated London toffs would look after the pit bull mongrels who change the tyres on their Rolls Royces didn't we? Once again the London bias strikes and Leeds have been unfairly punished.
The sending off of Pearce was ridiculous, as any number of Leeds fans have posted on here to tell me. True it was a crunching tackle, true it was premeditated, and true it was designed to prevent a goal scoring opportunity, but all that is beside the point. Warnock says it was never a red and Warnock is never wrong!
But the fix was in. So Leeds have to travel to the New Den without both Brown and Pearce, not to mention a host of other players ruled out by injury, including Austin - who did not suffer a double leg break but merely a crack of the ankle. Makes you wonder what all the fuss was about doesn't it? Some might even suspect it was a smoke screen to avoid difficult questions about a 1-6 home hammering! Perish the thought!
Poor old Warnock. He now rates the once mighty Leeds as underdogs for the game against little old Millwall - and is apparently 'shitting his pants' at the prospect of playing them. Still, by then Leeds may be owned by the Arabs and planning for a bright new future.
It wasn't Takeover Tuesday today but it could be Wonderful Wednesday tomorrow or Takeover Thursday the day after or Thank Crunchie It's Friday the day after that or maybe Mega Monday next week or Takeover Tuesday or...
