LUFC Warnock - It is like a rollercoaster ride

LUFC Warnock - It is like a rollercoaster ride

Neil Warnock compares managing Leeds United to both a rollercoaster ride and playing roulette and admits he does not have a clue, which Leeds United will turn up next.

Warnock has now taken charge of seven games since his appointment towards the end of February, with Leeds winning two, drawing three and losing two.

He admitted his first aim was to tighten up one of the leakiest defences in the championship and after conceding just two goals in his first five games in charge, Leeds let in seven against Nottingham Forest at home.

Warnock believes had Leeds shown any level of consistency they would already be in the play-off places.

Speaking on LUTV Warnock said, "It is a rollercoaster ride and you don`t know what is coming next. We are working on the defence and then we go and concede seven. The game of football does not make sense.

"If we had been anywhere near consistent. I only look at the Southampton and West Ham games where we lost five points and Portsmouth where we lost two. Seven points dropped, where would we be now?

"It is frightening the level of inconsistency in the championship."

Warnock is already looking ahead to next season and he is assessing the players who he wants to keep and whom he want to leave Elland Road.

"I think they know that if they are below par then they won`t beat anybody at the bottom end of the table let alone somebody near the top.

"We can`t be like that. Next season I cannot have an inconsistency like that. You might as well play roulette. Is it going to be black or red? Nobody knows with Leeds United at the minute.

"You cannot be going off like that has a manager. You need to know who is in the trenches with you, who is behind you and who you want in front of you out of the way,"
continued Warnock.

Despite the inconsistency, Leeds are just three points outside the play-off places with seven games remaining and with sides above them falling over each other to throw away the chance of promotion, anything is still possible.
