Warnock has hinted that the 2012/13 campaign will be his last as a manager, with it his intention to spend more time with his family.

Having walked straight into management after hanging up boots, the 64-year-old has been in the dugout since 1980.

He is ready to rid himself of the pressure which accompanies chasing points, but Brown is not convinced that Warnock will follow through on his quit plans.

Having worked under the vastly-experienced coach at Sheffield United and Leeds, the midfielder believes Warnock will find it difficult to tear himself away.

Brown told Sky Sports News HD: "He's a bit reluctant to finish, but the time will come where, family-wise, he is going to do that.

"He's been saying it for 15 years to us. The Sheffield United lads are going, 'Not sure it's going to be', but maybe this year that will be it. But I'm sure he's going to have some role in football."

If this is to be Warnock's final season, he will want to bow out on a high.

Leeds have slipped five points adrift of the play-off pack in the Championship, but Paul Green feels anything is possible.

He said: "We got a point against Peterborough in a draw (on Tuesday), but Brighton lost so in a way it's a good point for us.

"We have got Huddersfield on Saturday, if we get three points off them and see what other teams around us do, we could be two points off it going into the international break."

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
