'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Two Fingers To Warnock

Forget about 'The Special One' - Jose Mourinho - Neil Warnock tends to believe he is law unto himself. The pressure of the Whites hanging off his shirt tails is getting to him.

So what has he done now? Well, his Blades side continue the WOBBLE, and Supa-Gob could find himself in trouble with the Football Association following his V-sign towards the Norwich bench on Saturday. Oh yes, and guess what? They lost AGAIN!

FA disciplinary chiefs are considering whether to take action against the under-fire Blades boss for the two-fingered gesture which was clearly caught by television cameras after his side's 2-1 defeat at Carrow Road.

Warnock later explained he had been snubbed by opposite number Nigel Worthington when he went to shake hands, while the Canaries boss labelled him 'unprofessional and disrespectful'.

But Warnock told his club's official website: 'I had lost, I was disappointed, but offered my hand towards the home bench, but they turned their backs.

'I believe I'm entitled to some respect in that situation.'

An FA spokesperson confirmed they were looking into the incident and would confirm whether or not Warnock had a case to answer later this week.

WARNOCK ... YOU BIG JESSIE!

We like it when Warnock gets wound up. And of course we hope the Blunts blow automatic promotion too, though who'll get that spot I'm not entirely sure :-)

would have to agree.... nobody outside the red part of Sheffield, and I can speak for 99.9% of Leicester aswell, hopes that they wil prosper. Would like nothing more than to see them ***** it up again in the run in. i think they will, but to be honest, i have a feeling it will be Watford that take the place. They are on a roll, free scoring and seem to be able to turn it on week in week out at the moment. This is the business end of the season and although I have only seen your boys once season, if you play like you did at the Walkers, there's no way you'll pinch that place. There is no dispute that Warnock is a bit unpopular throughout the league (understatement of the season), but to ignore a handshake is childish and totally unprofessional.

Two fingers from a professional Manager is totally unacceptable. There is no excuse for this sort of behavior. Even if Worthington turned his back on him, the response was childish at best. He is not making any friends. What will he gesture to his own Supporters when they start the boos when they don't go up....
